A new bombshell allegation against Brett Kavanaugh was dropped today in a sworn declaration:
Below is my correspondence to Mr. Davis of moments ago, together with a sworn declaration from my client. We demand an immediate FBI investigation into the allegations. Under no circumstances should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed absent a full and complete investigation. pic.twitter.com/QHbHBbbfbE

I also 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. 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.
\13. In approximately 1982, I became the 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.
This is now the third allegation made against Brett Kavanaugh. He should not be confirmed. That is absolutely clear. These allegations are disgusting. But, what is also disgusting is how GOP Senators have acted toward these allegations. A representative of the GOP Senate Judiciary Committee was informed of this third allegation this Monday, two days ago:
We still have not received any response to my detailed email of this morning to Mr. Davis and the Committee (10 hrs ago). This is unacceptable. Moments ago, I once again asked for a response and answers – see email below. What are they hiding other than Mark Judge? pic.twitter.com/t1Fj1zevEh

“We are aware of significant evidence of multiple house parties in the Washington, D.C. area during the early 1980s, during which Brett Kavanagh, Mark Judge and others would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them. There are multiple witnesses that will corroborate these facts and each of them must be called to testify publicly.”
So, what did the GOP Senate Leadership do after being made aware of this third allegation on Monday? On Tuesday, they scheduled a rushed confirmation vote for Brett Kavanaugh:
The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a vote on the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for Friday, according to a notice from the committee’s Republican chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa.
A Friday vote would force lawmakers to decide on President Donald Trump’s nominee just one day after a much-anticipated hearing in which a woman who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault is expected to testify to lawmakers.
But, that is not all they did after hearing of these additional disgusting allegations. Mitch McConnell took to the Senate floor to attack the first allegation, calling it a “smear”, which by definition means false accusation, before even hearing the accuser’s testimony.
During a Senate floor speech on Monday, McConnell said Democrats were using Ford’s allegation to “smear” Kavanaugh and called their tactics “despicable.”
“This is an allegation of misconduct which all four supposed witnesses either flatly contradict or are unable to back up. In addition to Judge Kavanaugh, the other three supposed witnesses have said they have — quote — ‘no knowledge,’ ‘no recollection,’ and ‘no memory’ of the alleged incident,” McConnell said on Monday.
Not to be outdone, President Donald Trump attacked a second accuser, after the GOP Senate Judiciary Committee had been informed of this now third allegation.
“The second accuser has nothing,” Trump told reporters. “She admits that she was drunk.”
The president dismissed the notion that the allegation could be disqualifying, saying sarcastically: “Oh, gee, let’s not make him a Supreme Court judge because of that.”
It hasn’t just been GOP leadership that has been acting this way, either. GOP nominees for U.S Senate have also been speaking out to bash the accusations:
Kevin Cramer, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in North Dakota, decided to give his own take on a radio show:
“This case is even more absurd because these people were teenagers when this supposed, alleged incident took place. Teenagers. Not a boss, supervisor-subordinate situation as the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill situation was claimed to be,” he said during an appearance on KNOX. “These are teenagers who evidently were drunk according to her own, her own statements. They were drunk when it evidently happened… even by her own accusation. Again, it was supposedly an attempt or something that never went anywhere. So you just have to wonder.”
Marsha Blackburn, the Republican nominee for U.S Senate from Tennessee, made known her thoughts on the sexual assault accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, calling the accusation a “smear”:
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn says sexual misconduct accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh from high school are a “delay tactic,” saying his female accuser should testify under oath and a committee vote shouldn’t be delayed.
Blackburn says Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein has had Ford’s letter since July, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wants Democrats to delay on Kavanaugh in an “11th hour smear” attempt.
Dean Heller, Republican Senator from Nevada, who is up for re-election this November, referred to the attempted rape allegation made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a “hiccup”:
“I’m really grateful for the White House, for the effort of President Trump and what he has done, and the excitement that we have,” Heller said on the call, according to a report in The Nevada Independent. “We got a little hiccup here with the Kavanaugh nomination, we’ll get through this and we’ll get off to the races.”
Republican Senators have made it clear that their preferred course of action towards sexual assault allegations made against a Republican is to cover them up.
