Kennedy, Cruz and others said the potentially crucial hearing with Kavanaugh and Ford, the first woman to accuse Kavanaugh, will go forward on Thursday. Swetnick says in her declaration, "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".
At the same time, she noted, Kavanaugh and his cronies dumped drugs or booze into communal punch, plying girls with drinks in an effort to make them "lose their inhibitions and their ability to say 'no.'" Those girls, whom Swetnick believes Kavanaugh and company targeted because they seemed especially "vulnerable", often wound up violated behind closed doors; Swetnick knows this not only because she saw it, her affidavit explains, but because she experienced it firsthand.
She does not say Kavanaugh participated in the alleged rape or what, if any, role he played, nor does she say where the alleged episode took place.
"During our meal, Christine was visibly upset, so I asked her what was going on", Gildo-Mazzon says. Furthermore, she said that she shared the story of her own alleged gang rape with "at least two other people" shortly after it occurred. On Twitter, Trump himself described Democrats' efforts to scupper Kavanaugh's nomination as a "con job" created to ruin a good man. Trump also blasted Avenatti personally on Twitter, calling him a "third rate lawyer" who makes "false accusations" and is "looking for attention".
While Swetnick's claims have not been proven, and Kavanaugh has strongly denied them, Graham unnecessarily and callously attacks Swetnick in these tweets in a deeply misogynistic way. On Wednesday, Avenatti released an explosive letter which he sent to Mike Davis, the Chief Counsel for Nominations on the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary.
Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) reacted on "Outnumbered Overtime" to the third sexual misconduct accusation against Brett Kavanaugh.
In her statement, Swetnick also mentions that she watched Brett Kavanaugh's interview on Fox News earlier this week.

Since then, the service has grown to more than 1 billion users and has of course added plenty of advertisements. No explanation was given for their sudden departure from the photo-sharing network they founded in 2010.
"There is no excuse, no excuse for the committee or for Brett Kavanaugh not calling Mark Judge to testify for the committee", Avenatti said.
Swetnick also said in her "sworn declaration" that she had also been a victim of one of the incidents, during which Kavanaugh was allegedly present. Of course, if Swetnick's allegations are true, what she is doing now, testifying to her claims, is the epitome of warning others about abuse. Rasor said that Judge seemed to regard it as fully consensual.
Swetnick grew up in Montgomery County, Maryland, graduating from Gaithersburg High School in 1980 before attending college at the University of Maryland, according to a resume for her posted online. Kavanaugh CANNOT be on the highest court in the land.
Avenatti, who rose to fame after his representation of Stephanie Clifford, the adult film actress known as Stormy Daniels who took on U.S. President Donald Trump, had been using his Twitter account for days to promote what he said would be explosive allegations against Kavanaugh.
"I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me", she added.
"You don't find people like this", Trump said of his nominee while at United Nations headquarters in NY.
