“I don’t think he is going to make it at this point.” – Joe Getty, KGO810 Host
A third woman has come forward against Brett Kavanaugh, alleging in a sworn declaration that in the early 80s she witnessed efforts by the Supreme Court nominee, Mark Judge and others to cause girls to become inebriated so they could then be “gang raped” in a side room or bedroom by a “train of numerous boys.”
In the document Julie Swetnick, a Washington resident being represented by lawyer Michael Avenatti, made the bombshell revelation she had a “firm recollection” of seeing Kavanaugh and Judge among those in line waiting for their “turn” with the targeted girl. Near the end of the letter she disclosed in approximately 1982 she herself was a victim of “a gang rape where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present.”
Swetnick, who ran in the same circles as Kavanaugh during her time as a student at Gaithersburg High School in Maryland, also stated she observed Kavanaugh drinking excessively at house parties and engaging in “highly inappropriate conduct,” which included being “overly aggressive with girls and not taking “no” for an answer. In addition to a slew of other claims, she shared she saw Kavanaugh be verbally abusive toward girls and subject them to crude sexual comments that were designed to demean, humiliate and embarrass them.

Sweetnick’s pledge to testify and prior employment history with the government, which includes working with the Vietnam War Commemoration, the U.S. Department of Defense in Arlington, Virginia, the U.S. Mint, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, are causing many to speculate her accusations may lead to the end of the road for Kavanaugh.
Joe Getty is one of those who hold the sentiment the judge “isn’t going to make it.”
Getty and his co-host, Jack Armstrong, dedicated a segment to discussing the breaking news and scenarios that could follow, including the odds of Trump nominating a more conservative judge in retaliation if Kavanaugh falls through. As of right now, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley is leaving the door open to the postponement of the vote planned for Friday to advance the nomination of Kavanaugh.
