In his long-awaited hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Supreme Court Justice nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh vehemently denied the accusations being thrown at him as by the committee Thursday.
At one point, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California asked Kavanaugh why, if he was so innocent, he wouldn’t call for a full FBI investigation into the claims being made against him.
“And what you’re saying, if I understand it, is that the allegations by Dr. Ford, Miss Ramirez and Miss Swetnick are wrong,” Feinstein said.
“That is emphatically what I’m saying. Emphatically,” Kavanaugh responded.
“The Swetnick thing is a joke. That is a farce,” he added.
Swetnick has alleged, using Michael Avenatti as her lawyer, that Kavanaugh and his high school friends engaged in activities in high school that involved drugging and getting girls so drunk that they could not say “no” when the boys would then “gang rape” them.

“Would you like to say more about it?” Feinstein continued.
“No,” Kavanaugh responded.
Kavanaugh has denied all allegations from Ford and Swetnick and Ramirez, who alleged he exposed himself to her at a drunken dorm room party at Yale University.
The Judiciary Committee has planned to vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination Friday.
