A third woman, represented by lawyer Michael Avenatti, has come out with allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
This comes a day before the Senate Judiciary Committee hears testimonies from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, the Bay Area academic who claimed that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party when they were both in high school.
The latest accuser, Julie Swetnick, claims that she was gang raped by a group of boys in high school while Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were present. Furthermore, Swetnick claims that Kavanaugh and Judge had “spiked” the drinks of girls at parties to make them more vulnerable to these attacks.
Larry and guests examine these explosive allegations and their impact on tomorrow’s scheduled hearing.
