Moreover, Swetnick claims that she went to these parties as an adult-10 of them!-and never did anything besides "avoid the punch".
In the other two, Ford did not name Kavanaugh but said she was assaulted by a federal judge.
Dr Christine Blasey Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University, is due to testify before the committee. The vote to confirm Kavanaugh is now scheduled for Friday.
Another woman, Deborah Ramirez, has since told U.S. media that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a college party in the 1980s. "It's ridiculous. Total Twilight Zone. Let me talk", she said.More news: PUBG Mobile gets its first ever world championship with Star Challenge
Judge's lawyer, Barbara Van Gelder, said in a statement, "Mr. Judge vehemently denies the allegations contained in the Swetnick affidavit".
In testimony for Thursday's Senate hearing, Kavanaugh acknowledges drinking in high school with his friends, but says he's never done anything "remotely resembling" the sexual misconduct alleged by his chief accuser. During a high school gathering, she said, he held her down, covered her mouth and attempted to forcibly remove her clothing.
"Describe her appearance", Kavanaugh said. "This conduct included the fondling and grabbing girls without their consent", the sworn statement says. She recalls him grinding on women at parties and "not taking no for an answer", sometimes getting verbally abusive with women.
And on Wednesday, Julie Swetnick said in a signed declaration that a teenage Kavanaugh was among a group that spiked drinks at high school parties in the 1980s to make it easier to rape girls. "It was hard for me to breathe, and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me", she added. "It is about whether or not a woman who has been a victim at some point in her life is to be believed", Lisa Murkowski, an Alaska Republican senator who is a potential swing vote on Justice Kavanaugh's nomination, told The New York Times.More news: Germany to host UEFA EURO 2024
While Swetnick said she is aware of other witnesses who can attest to the truthfulness of her statements, she has not identified those witnesses.
The all-male Republican contingent on the Senate judiciary committee brought in a female prosecutor, Rachel Mitchell, to ask questions of Prof. And then the allegations were leaked to the press. "Just from what I have seen of Judge Kavanaugh I can't reconcile [the allegations] with the person I've seen and heard. The Ranking Member's staff sat through the interview". While Republicans want to move forward, they are mindful of the fallout if they don't take the accusations seriously.
