WASHINGTON (AP) – Some of Brett Kavanaugh’s high school friends are pushing back against the latest accusation of sexual misconduct against the Supreme Court nominee.
The friends have written the Senate Judiciary Committee and said they’ve “never witnessed any behavior that even approaches what is described in this allegation.”
Julie Swetnick has provided a sworn declaration to the committee that says she witnessed Kavanaugh “consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s.” Her lawyer posted the declaration on Twitter.
The 64 Kavanaugh friends from the all-male Georgetown Prep and some sister high schools who signed the letter say they don’t remember ever meeting Swetnick and they say “these shameful attacks must end.”
Kavanaugh has denied the new charges.
