Julie Swetnick revealed as Michael Avenatti's client accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

Michael Avenatti said Wednesday that Julie Swetnick, a Washington, D.C., resident, is his client who’s accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, marking the third woman to come forward with claims against the Supreme Court nominee in just over a week.

Avenatti, who also represents the adult film star Stormy Daniels, said in a tweet Sunday that he had a new client with “credible information” regarding Kavanaugh and his friend from high school, Mark Judge. However, he said his client was not Deborah Ramirez, the second woman to come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct by the judge.

Ramirez, in an interview with The New Yorker that was published Sunday, claimed Kavanaugh exposed himself to her and thrust his penis in her face during a party when they were both students at Yale University in the 1980s. Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the claims.

Avenatti leveled a separate, shocking allegation against Kavanaugh on Twitter late Sunday, showing what appeared to be a screenshot of an email he sent to the chief counsel for nominations to the Senate Judiciary Committee. In the message, the attorney said he claimed to have evidence that Kavanaugh and Judge participated in the “targeting” of women at house parties with “alcohol/drugs.”

The attorney did not specify the nature of Kavanaugh’s involvement but said he would release evidence in the coming days. HuffPost has reached out to the White House for comment on the claims.

Avenatti has repeatedly called for Kavanaugh’s nomination to be withdrawn. “We don’t need to be putting someone like that on Supreme Court for life,” he said during remarks at a launch party for newly formed political action committee “OMG WTF” on Thursday in Los Angeles.

“When you talk about the U.S. Supreme Court you are effectively talking about nine kings who have a tremendous amount of power,” Avenatti added. “In fact, many would argue, including me, that they have more power than any president does.”

The lawyer also told Chris Cuomo earlier this month that there are “other individuals that are more qualified than this judge to sit on the Supreme Court and his [Kavanaugh’s[ nomination should be pulled.”

Avenatti has made a name for himself as Daniels’ lawyer. He has not ruled out a potential presidential run in 2020, making appearances at the Iowa State Fair and a Democratic Party picnic in New Hampshire earlier this year.

The White House has remained steadfast in its support of Kavanaugh, and on Sunday, officials said the latest allegations were part of a “coordinated smear campaign.”
