Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick's allegations fall apart during NBC interview

Dennis Ketterer

Ketterer said he provided his statement because he wanted to "do the right thing" and because he sympathized with Kavanaugh's wife, Ashley.

On Tuesday, a GOP senator tweeted that a "criminal referral should be sent to the FBI" after Judge Brett Kavanaugh's accuser, Julie Swetnick, seemingly retracted some of her claims against Kavanaugh.

Swetnik is the woman who claims that Kavanaugh and a high school classmate, Mark Judge, were excessively drinking and at parties where girls were sexually assaulted. "I don't know what he did, but I saw him by them". "I saw him try to shift clothing", she told Snow.

Swetnick has claimed Kavanaugh and his high school friends spiked punch to get her and other girls drunk, then gang-raped them at almost a dozen parties she attended in suburban Maryland in the early 1980s.

But on Monday night, in an interview with NBC, Swetnick admitted, "I don't know what [Kavanaugh] did, but I saw him by [punch containers]".

In her sworn statement Swetnick recounted behaviors that she had learned of about Kavanaugh saying, "During the years 1981-82, I became aware of efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to "spike" the "punch" at house parties I attended with drugs and/or grain alcohol so as to cause girls to lose their inhibitions and their ability to say 'no'".

Rucker did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Air Force turns to Boeing for $9.2 billion training aircraft contract
Boeing and Saab's T-X trainer would replace the Air Education and Training Command's 57-year-old fleet of Northrop T-38C Talons. The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract allows the Air Force to purchase up to 475 aircraft and 120 simulators .

He said that the Kavanaugh accuser represented by Avenatti, Julie Swetnick, "couldn't [be] shielded" by NBC News' interview earlier this week.

Ketterer said he decided not to see Swetnick anymore due to her "penchant for group sex", writing in his letter that "A.I.D.S. was a huge issue at the time".

"My body was violated My soul was broken ..." When I first chose to run, everybody said the single most important thing you do is the Supreme Court Justice It's okay, we've all heard that many times about a president. "You're potentially looking at three years of an entire county's worth of police reports you'd have to search through to see if we can find Miss Swetnick's name or Judge Kavanaugh's name in any police report". This is similar to Swetnick's allegation from her own declaration. But based on his "direct experience with Julie", Ketterer wrote, he did "not believe her allegations against Mr. Kavanaugh". Both her mother and the officer are now deceased.

Multiple Democratic congressional aides told Business Insider they anxious that while they wanted to fully investigate Swetnick's claims, they viewed the connection to Avenatti as an unnecessary distraction that only gave more ammunition to Republicans looking to discredit his client. Testing - and reporting on - the credibility of Swetnick's claims are part of what the nation needs to weigh in deciding on his suitability for the court.

Things got derailed when Julie told me that she liked to have sex with more than one guy at a time. An ex-boyfriend of Swetnick's also filed a restraining order against her, claiming she had threatened him and his family after they broke up. The story Swetnick told strains credulity.

He wrote that Swetnick never mentioned any sexual assaults or Kavanaugh's name to him during their brief relationship.

When followers pointed out that it probably meant a lot to Kelly when she accused former Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes of assault and was believed, she cited the evidence she had to back her claim.
