A lawyer for Mark Judge, the longtime friend of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, told The Daily Caller News Foundation that he “vehemently denies” the allegations by Julie Swetnick that the two were present during an alleged “gang rape” against her and other women in the 1980s.

“Mark is not speaking publicly until the Kavanaugh confirmation proceeding is concluded,” Judge’s attorney, Barbara Van Gelder, told TheDCNF before adding that “He vehemently denies Ms. Swetnick’s allegations.”

Van Gelder also told TheDCNF that Judge has told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he does not wish to testify publicly, even after these latest allegations.

His attorney also added that he would have more to say after the hearings are complete.

Judge, who is reportedly holed up in a Delaware beach house owned by a friend, has been at the center of two allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh. (RELATED: Woman Repped By Avenatti Claims Kavanaugh Attended Gang-Rape Parties)

Earlier this month, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford alleged that both Judge and Kavanaugh locked her in a room at a house where a party was being held and attempted to sexually assault her before she escaped.

Celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti came forward Wednesday with sworn testimony by Swetnick, who says she witnessed Judge and Kavanaugh presence at an alleged “gang rape” where inebriated women were assaulted by a “train” of various boys.

Judge referred all future questions to his lawyer in a text to TheDCNF.
