  • Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse Supreme Court
    nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, has given her first
    on-camera interview.
  • She called for Kavanaugh to be investigated if he is to
    “legitimately” hold a lifetime seat on the court.
  • “I just want the facts to come out, and I want it to be
    just, and I want the American people to have those facts and
    judge for themselves,” she said.
  • Swetnick was speaking in a preview for an episode
    of Showtime’s “The Circus.” The full episode is out
    Sunday.
  • Kavanaugh is due to testify on Thursday on sexual assault
    allegations made against him by Christine Blasey Ford.

Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee
Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, said in her first on-camera
interview that she wants “American people to have those
facts and judge for themselves” if Kavanaugh deserves
a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court.

Swetnick said that she believes the behavior she claimed to
witness from him in the 1980s should disqualify him from the
court, and that the allegations made against him need to be
investigated.

“He’s going to have that seat for rest of
his life. If he’s gonna have that seat legitimately, all these
things should be investigated, because from what I experienced
first-hand, I don’t think he belongs on
the Supreme Court,” she said.

A preview of the interview with Showtime’s “The Circus”
aired on Thursday morning. The full interview will air on
Sunday.

In a sworn declaration made public by attorney Michael Avenatti,
Swetnick said Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge engaged in
“abusive and physically aggressive behavior toward girls” at
house parties in high school in the early 1980s. 


Swetnick alleges
that Kavanaugh was present at a party where
women, including her, were “gang raped.”

Kavanaugh
denies these
and all other sexual misconduct allegations made
against him. He called Swetnick’s allegations out of the
“Twilight Zone.”

Her comments come as Kavanaugh is due to testify on
Thursday against sexual assault allegations made against him by
Christine Blasey Ford.

Ford says that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her,
and held his hand over her mouth as she screamed at a high school
party in the 1980s.
