NBC News Sits Down With Kavanaugh Accuser Julie Swetnick But Can’t Verify Claims, by Jeremy Barr.

Swetnick, who is represented by Michael Avenatti, has not been approached by the FBI.

Julie Swetnick, in her first broadcast television interview since accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, told NBC News national correspondent Kate Snow she couldn’t be sure that Kavanaugh was one of the boys who assaulted her during a party in the 1980s.

Swetnick, in a sworn affidavit released last week by her attorney Michael Avenatti, said she was the victim of a gang rape at a party, at which she also saw Kavanaugh behave inappropriately toward women.

“I cannot specifically say that he was one of the ones who assaulted me,” Swetnick told Snow. “But, before this happened to me, at that party, I saw Brett Kavanaugh there, I saw Mark Judge, and they were hanging out about where I started to feel disoriented and where the room was and where the other boys were hanging out and laughing.”

Swetnick, asked to respond to Kavanaugh’s denial of her allegations, said that “he is an admitted blackout drunk and drug addict.”

In her sworn statement, Swetnick claimed that Kavanaugh “consistently engage(d) in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s.” …

Before airing the interview, Snow said: “NBC News, for the record, has not been able to independently verify her claims. There are things she told us on camera that differ from her written statements last week.” …

Swetnick described the attack and the impact it had on her. “What happened to me is probably the most horrendous, awful thing that could happen to a human being,” she said. “My body was violated, my soul was broken. It felt like somebody took me and basically said, ‘You’re worthless, you’re nothing to us, you’re disposable.”

She says she attended ten such parties. If there were gang rapes at the parties, why didn’t she stop going after attending just one such party? Or report it to the police? And wouldn’t the many victims report being raped? Sigh.
