Dozens of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s classmates from Georgetown Prep high school signed a letter rebutting decades-old allegations of sexual assault by a woman represented by Democratic lawyer Michael Avenatti.
“We never witnessed any behavior that even approaches what is described in this allegation. It is reprehensible,” his classmates wrote, adding, “In the extensive amount of time we collectively spent with Brett, we do not recall having ever met someone named Julie Swetnick. Nor did we ever observe Brett engaging in any conduct resembling that described in Ms. Swetnick’s declaration.”
Julie Swetnick surfaced her claims via her lawyer’s Twitter feed Wednesday.
Below is my correspondence to Mr. Davis of moments ago, together with a sworn declaration from my client. We demand an immediate FBI investigation into the allegations. Under no circumstances should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed absent a full and complete investigation. pic.twitter.com/QHbHBbbfbE

Kavanaugh rebutted the third allegation, saying, “This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don’t know who this is, and this never happened.”
President Donald Trump also weighed in by attacking Swetnick’s choice of lawyer, saying:
Avenatti is a third rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He is just looking for attention and doesn’t want people to look at his past record and relationships – a total low-life!

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,” Kavanaugh has stated.
