Kavanaugh Statement: Latest Accusation ‘From the Twilight Zone’
Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh released a statement via the White House about the latest wild accusations of sexual abuse at high school parties in the 1980s.
“This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don’t know who this is and this never happened.”

Kavanaugh was responding to the accusations by Julie Swetnick released Wednesday by porn star attorney and Trump antagonist Michael Avenatti that accuses Kavanaugh and his male friends of getting women intoxicated at high school parties in the early 1980s to get them gang raped. Swetnick implies Kavanaugh did that to her.

“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,” Swetnick said in paragraph 11 of her sworn statement.
“I witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to “target” particular girls so they could be taken advantage of; it was usually a girl that was especially vulnerable because she was alone at the party or shy,” Swetnick continued.
Swetnick makes allegations of gang rape against Kavanaugh and Judge in paragraph 13 in her sworn statement:
In approximately 1982, I became the victim of one of these “gang” or “train” rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present. Shortly after the incident, I shared what had transpired with at least two other people. During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me. I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking.”
Swetnick also alleges Kavanaugh and Judge were lined up outside of rooms with a train of numerous boys waiting their turn with a girl inside the room.
I also witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be “gang raped” in a side room or bedroom by a “train” of numerous boys. I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their “turn” with a girl inside the room. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh.”
