Julie Swetnick, one of the women accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, talks about gang-rape parties with NBC's Kate Snow. Swetnick said she was drugged and gang-raped by Kavanaugh and friend Mark Judge. NBC News stated that Swetnick's claims could not be independently verified.
Swetnick is represented by Michael Avenatti, who is also the attorney for adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
"I cannot specifically say that he was one of the ones who assaulted me," Swetnick acknowledged. "But, before this happened to me, at that party, I saw Brett Kavanaugh there, I saw Mark Judge, and they were hanging out about where I started to feel disoriented and where the room was and where the other boys were hanging out and laughing."
She also accused Kavanaugh of spiking drinks and giving them to girls but could not say whether she ever saw it happen.
"Well, I saw him giving red Solo cups to quite a few girls during that time frame and there was green punch at those parties," Swetnick said. "And I would not take one of those glasses from Brett Kavanaugh. I saw him around the punch, I won't say bowls, or the punch containers... I don't know what he did, but I saw him by them."
"Yes, there are people who do know about those parties," Swetnick told NBC.
NBC's Kate Snow also noted that of the four names of people she provided that went to these sex-filled parties with her, one said he doesn't even know her, one is deceased, and the remaining two opted not to respond to NBC News.
"NBC News, for the record, has not been able to independently verify her claims. There are things she told us on camera that differ from her written statements last week," Snow reported earlier in the segment. "We've been trying independently to reach out to anyone who remembers attending parties with Julie Swetnick and Brett Kavanaugh and we've been asking her attorney for names. So far, we've not found anyone who remembers that."
Avenatti tweeted Monday night that his client has offered to take a polygraph test, meet with the FBI, and be cross-examined by Kavanaugh.
"My client Julie Swetnick has offered to take a polygraph test, meet with the FBI and be cross examined by Kavanaugh’s lawyers. He has refused to do the same. All of these women cannot be lying. And women who are lying do not push to meet with the FBI. Why the coverup by Trump?" he asked.
