Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse Trump SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, gave her first interview to Showtime’s John Heilemann on Thursday.
Swetnick, a former U.S. Treasury Dept. employee, said that she has known Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge since the early ’80s and says she attended “well over” 10 house parties where the two were present and witnessed them sexually assault them and “demean” and “humiliate them.” She said she was also aware of efforts by Kavanaugh and Judge to “spike” the punch at parties in order to take advantage of women who were there.
Said Swetnick: “This is something that occurred a long time ago. And it’s not that I just thought about it. It’s been on my mind ever since the occurrences. [Brett Kavanaugh is] going to have that seat for rest of his life. If he’s gonna have that seat legitimately, all these things should be investigated, because from what I experienced first-hand, I don’t think he belongs on the Supreme Court. I just want the facts to come out, and I want it to be just, and I want the American people to have those facts and judge for themselves.”
Asked if there are particular things she considers disqualifying for Kavanaugh from her statement, Swetnick replied: “All of the above. That’s not the type of behavior that anybody at any age should do. I don’t think women should be treated that way. And I don’t think that any human being should be treated that way.”
