Judge Brett Kavanaugh vehemently denied a new decades-old allegation against him made by a woman represented by Michael Avenatti, in a new statement.

“This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don’t know who this is and this never happened,” Kavanaugh said.

In a document sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday morning, Avenatti’s client Julie Swetnick claims she attended parties where she saw Kavanaugh try to get girls drunk and disoriented so that they could be “gang” raped.

Swetnick alleges that Kavanaugh and his high school associate Mark Judge were involved in sexually debauched parties and were “present” when she was gang raped. The Judiciary committee is now investigating Swetnick’s allegation.

Kavanaugh will testify before the committee Thursday about allegations made against him by Swetnick, Deborah Ramirez and Dr. Christine Ford. He will testify, “There has been a frenzy to come up with something — anything, no matter how far-fetched or odious — that will block a vote on my nomination. These are last minute smears, pure and simple.”

“The truth is that I have never sexually assaulted anyone — not in high school, not in college, not ever.”
