This just breaking. . .
We have one sworn statement here doubting Swetnick’s testimony, but the operative word is “doubting” – he offers no specific contradictory evidence and he has credibility issues – I’ll let you be the judge.
The other statement, which corroborates aspects of both Ford’s and Swetnick’s testimony, I feel is explosive. True, this person does not have testimony regarding the particular sexual assault crimes which Ford and Swetnick are alleging, but she does attest to the types of parties and behaviors that Kavanaugh has denied under oath. Her statement is credible eyewitness testimony establishing that Kavanaugh has perjured himself and thus is not fit to serve as a judge on the Supreme Court.
The witness’s name is currently redacted in the statement, but Avenatti says she will be identified once the FBI has contacted her for an interview.
It will be a travesity if the FBI does not question this person to asses whether or not she is being truthful. And it’s especially important that they interview her because in her closing remarks she claims to have information about additional “inappropriate conduct” by Kavanaugh which she is willing to disclose directly to the FBI.
Every point she makes is highly incriminating, but to me the most explosive is item 6: “During the years 1981-82, I witnessed firsthand Brett Kavanaugh, together with others, “spike” the “punch” at house parties I attended with Quaaludes and/or grain alcohol.”
Sidenote: The yearbook entry of one of K’s close friends references “Killer Qs and 151” (alluding to Quaaludes and 151 proof alcohol); another friend’s entry mentions the “Killer Qs club.”
Here’s Avenatti’s tweet announcing this witness’s sworn statement. It includes his cover letter to the FBI along with a copy of the statement. I’ve also included the statement below. It’s a fast read at just a page and a half – highly recommended.
