The allegations came hours before both Kavanugh and his original accuser, Dr Christine Blasey Ford, prepared to testify to the senate judiciary committee over allegations Ford was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh in the presence of his best friend, author Mark Judge, in 1982.
"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", she said in the statement.
Swetnick said that she attended more than 10 parties with Kavanaugh and Judge between 1981 and 1983. She has said he forced her into a room at a high school party, held her on a bed and tried removing her clothes as he muffled her mouth with his hands.More news: Paul Pogba May Cost Far More Than Barcelona Are Capable Of Spending
Two other women, Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, have also accused the judge of sexual misconduct in separate instances. In 2012 during a couples therapy session, he says, she revealed that in high school she had been "trapped in a room and physically restrained by one boy who was molesting her while another boy watched". Swetnick does not claim in her declaration that there are other witnesses who can attest to any role of Brett Kavanaugh in gang rape.
To repeat, it will take some time before we can make a full judgment about Swetnick's allegations, and The Post has not independently verified them.

Dr Ford claimed Judge Kavanaugh had placed his hand over her mouth to stop her from screaming out for help.
In a statement, Kavanaugh called Swetnick's allegations "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone". Supposedly, there's a vote on his confirmation scheduled for Friday morning, but judging from the parade of elected officials on TV this morning weighing in on this latest news, I doubt that's going to happen.

Rep. Hank Johnson, a Georgia Democrat who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, plans to open an investigation into the background of Brett Kavanaugh if he is confirmed to the Supreme Court, Johnson told The Intercept. "The standard of character and fitness for a position on the nation's highest court must be higher than this".
