Democrats are going spastic. As Judge Brett Kavanaugh takes the witness stand yet again, to defend himself from one implausible accuser, who stepped out of the shadows at the last moment, Democrats are still trying to prevent tomorrow’s confirmation vote. The best solution they could come up with was to have Christine Blasey Ford hand carry new allegations up on the witness stand with her.
Now, Julie Swetnick claims Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge were lining up to “pound her too.” Yet, one female high school friend of the nominee cries foul, flatly declaring it never happened and Swetnick was never at one of their parties.
“You can’t just go to a party of someone you don’t know, unless she had a friend inside the group,” Lisa Miller asserts. Swetnick “would have to be inside the private school usuals.”
Swetnick alleges she “witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented, so they could then be ‘gang-raped’ in a side room or bedroom by a ‘train’ of numerous boys.”
An affidavit released by her attorney, Michael Avenatti, states, “I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their ‘turn’ with a girl inside the room. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh.”
Lisa Miller admits that she tipped back a few brews with the guys on the Georgetown Prep football team. “In 1981, I attended parties with football players from Georgetown Prep, she declares. “NEVER did I witness behavior that Julie Swetnick described, ever.”
She doesn’t favor Kavanaugh’s nomination but doesn’t want to see his reputation go down in flames either. “I’d prefer a more rule of law constitutionalist who isn’t so concerned with bad law being protected by stare decisis. But NOT at the expense of his reputation.” Swetnick’s fantasies were “so outrageous I had to speak up.”
Miller went to lots of parties with “people from the various local schools” but not Julie Swetnick. “I knew people from public and private schools and up and down the age groups because I’ve got so many siblings. I knew rich and poor, conservative and liberal, some of the best minds across all industries and the simple.”
She would know Swetnick if the girl really did go to the “preppie” parties. Public school kids stand out like a sore thumb. Their “social circles didn’t mix.” Private schools were a closed group. Kavanaugh brought his calendar from all the way back in 1982, showing his parties marked. Only prep school kids would be able to do that.
Miller was part of Kavanaugh’s social circle and has the lacrosse letter jacket from Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School to prove it. Not once did she attend an ivy league party where there were gang rapes.
Swetnick implies it happened almost every weekend. PJ Media reports, “Swetnick claims to have repeatedly witnessed such events at multiple parties before she eventually became a victim herself.” That makes it sound like she knew what she was in for and kept coming back until it was her turn. Alas, if only in her dreams.
“In approximately 1982, I became a victim of one of these “gang” or “train” rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present. Shortly after the incident, I shared what had transpired with at least two other people.”
“During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me. I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking.”
Rather than one of the exclusive area prep schools, Swetnick graduated from Gaithersburg High in Gaithersburg, Maryland. An ex-boyfriend filed a restraining order against her in 2001 and she settled out of court with a former employer for sexual harassment in 2008. Her attorneys were from the same law firm run by Debra Katz, Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney.
On March 1, 2001, Richard Vinneccy filed for a restraining order declaring, “he and Swetnick dated for four years before they broke up, at which point, Swetnick began to threaten him. The threats reportedly continued, even after Vinneccy got married and had a child.”
“Right after I broke up with her, she was threatening my family, threatening my wife and threatening to do harm to my baby at that time. I know a lot about her. She’s not credible at all. Not at all.”
According to the Wall Street Journal, “Swetnick received a financial settlement over a sexual harassment complaint against a former employer, New York Life Insurance Co.,” The company “confirmed Swetnick worked as an agent for less than two years from 2006 to 2008.”
Blasey Ford is the center of today’s drama. Just yesterday, her attorney released a copy of the polygraph report from the lie detector test she took, while at the same time refusing to cough up the notes from Blasey Ford’s therapist.
Senator Charles Grassley immediately demanded all the records documenting that polygraph be turned over for analysis. It appears to many, that Ford’s attorneys subtly employed “countermeasure” techniques to influence the results.
It is obvious that she believes what she says but that is far from meaning that it is the truth. False memories are easier to establish than most people would think and once you have a false memory, you believe it really happened.
Police are now trained to be very wary of false memories. “False confessions can destroy an entire case while police move forward with prosecutors to convict an innocent individual instead of focusing on other suspects.”
As part of an experiment, false childhood memories were planted in 21 of 60 participants. They “not only believed they had committed a crime but provided the details about the event.” Christine Blasey Ford and Julie Swetnick appear to be using their false memories for “fifteen minutes of fame,” as Andy Warhol would say.
