Beth Wilkinson, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s attorney, denied on Wednesday new allegations that her client was present at high school parties where women were gang raped.
Wilkinson questioned why Julie Swetnick, who is being represented by celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti, never reported any of the supposed gang rapes she saw at multiple different parties and continued attending those parties.
“When you say you went to 10 parties like that and you kept going to those parties even though that was happening, and you saw that supposedly happening to other girls — that is a different thing not to report,” Wilkinson said. “I understand why women don’t report sexual assault. It’s very difficult, and no one should criticize them for that. But this is a whole different level.”
Wilkinson said she would have expected Avenatti to go to the police with the accusations, if they were valid. (RELATED: Woman Repped By Avenatti Makes Salacious Claim That Kavanaugh Attended Gang-Rape Parties)
“Really, you witnessed gang rapes and you never said anything? You’ve never come forward?” she asked.
“As a parent of a daughter and two sons, I cannot imagine not coming forward when this man was named if that’s what you witnessed,” Wilkinson asserted.
Swetnick also alleged that Kavanaugh and his high school friend Mark Judge would “spike” the party “punch bowl” with alcohol in order to incapacitate women. Kavanaugh has denied the accusation.
