  • Attorney Michael Avenatti claimed he has evidence that Brett
    Kavanaugh, nominee for the Supreme Court, participated in sexual
    misconduct in high school.
  • He said that at multiple house parties in the early 1980s,
    Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge plied women with alcohol and
    drugs “in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang
    rape them.”
  • His claim comes the same night The New Yorker published
    allegations from Deborah Ramirez, who said Kavanaugh exposed
    himself to her at a party when they were students at Yale
    University.

Attorney Michael Avenatti added to the storm of sexual misconduct
allegations against Brett Kavanaugh on Sunday, claiming he has
“significant evidence” that the Supreme Court nominee
participated in sexual misconduct in high school.

In an email to Mike Davis, the chief counsel for nominations for
the Senate Judiciary Committee, Avenatti
said
he had evidence that during the early 1980s, Kavanaugh,
his friend Mark Judge, and others plied women with alcohol and
drugs “in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently
gang rape them.”

Avenatti did not identify any witnesses or disclose more
details about the alleged incidents. He tweeted a screenshot of
the email Sunday evening after announcing
he represented a woman with “credible information” about
Kavanaugh and Judge.

Avenatti elaborated
to Politico
 later on Sunday that he represents a
group of people, including one victim and multiple witnesses, who
can corroborate allegations involving Kavanaugh and Judge.

Also on Sunday, The New Yorker published
an allegation from Deborah Ramirez
, a former Yale University
classmate of Kavanaugh’s, who claimed Kavanaugh exposed himself
to her at a dorm-room party during the 1983-84 school year.
Avenatti clarified that his client was not Ramirez.

The two allegations come less than a week
before Christine Blasey Ford is
set to testify in open court
about her claim that Kavanaugh
attempted to rape her while they were in high school. Ford said
Judge was a witness to the incident.

Kavanaugh has denied both Ramirez and Ford’s
allegations.

Avenatti, who also represents adult film actress Stormy
Daniels in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump,  said
he “will be demanding the opportunity to present testimony” to
the Senate Judicial Committee, which is overseeing Kavanaugh’s
nomination proceedings.
