Judiciary Committee Receives Statement Regarding Swetnick Allegations

Washington, DC...The Senate Judiciary Committee today received a signed statement from Mr. Dennis Ketterer, the former Democratic candidate for Congress and weatherman for WJLA Channel 7 in Washington, regarding the recent allegations made by Julie Swetnick against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Mr. Ketterer had a relationship with Ms. Swetnick in the 1990s.




Below are excerpts of the signed statement, which was provided to the committee under penalty of felony.


“During a conversation about our sexual preferences, things got derailed when Julie told me that she liked to have sex with more than one guy at a time. In fact sometimes with several at one time. She wanted to know if that would be ok in our relationship.


“I asked her if this was just a fantasy of hers. She responded that she first tried sex with multiple guys while in high school and still liked it from time-to-time. She brought it up because she wanted to know if I would be interested in that.”


“Julie never said anything about being sexually assaulted, raped, gang-raped or having sex against her will. She never mentioned Brett Kavanaugh in any capacity.”


“Because I had lost Julie’s number I called her father to get it. When I talked to him about possibly bringing her on to help with my campaign, he told me that she had psychological and other problems at the time.”


“I know what it’s like to be sexually assaulted and not be believed. I was 9 years old when it happened at the hands of my grandfather’s best friend.”


“My heart still feels heavy, for me as well as Julie and the Kavanaughs. That said, based on my direct experience with Julie, I do not believe her allegations against Mr. Kavanaugh.”


The full statement submitted to the committee can be found HERE.

    Hey pimple Dick, it's Ford who's crying and whining, do you know why?
    Ford is a democrat. Like Hillary, also a known liar, who's husband is a known pedophile, and also was known as the Liar in Chief, as he lied to the American People while in office, with his hand on the bible. Funny how you pimple brains forget as you cry everyday about Hillary losing because of all of her lies she's told over the years caught up with her.
    Yup, Trump is disgusting, but better him then the woman who would sell out America and her people for her and all her corrupt friends to prosper at our expense.

      It was Julie, nor Dr Ford who liked to get it in the rear as someone else was porking her throat or doing a double trouble in whatever hole was available. Butt, maybe Ford and Julie, the lawyers will have a real a$$ to mouth party together? I'm just curious how much the democrats paid these women? The democrats keep trying to destroy this administration, and America keeps winning under Trump never-less.

Julie isn't a very reliable witness

Julie is bat chit crazy. I guess she thinks (along with the democrats who found and paid this nitwit)
Here's a copy and paste article about her, and don't fret, it has both sides to the story.

''The third woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct faced "inappropriate conduct" allegations of her own during her brief employment with an Oregon tech firm, according to reports.

In a lawsuit filed in 2000, Portland-based Webtrends alleged that Julie Swetnick, 55, falsely claimed to be a Johns Hopkins University alum and fabricated her prior work experience, the Oregonian reported.

The company voluntarily dismissed the lawsuit after a month.

Swetnick’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, called the case “completely bogus.”

“This lawsuit never had any merit as evidenced by how quickly it was dismissed," Avenatti told the paper in an email. "It was originally filed in retaliation for my client making claims against the company."

Swetnick worked for the company off-site for a few months in 2000 as a professional services engineer, according to the paper.

Allegations laid out against her in the lawsuit include engaging in unwelcome sexually offensive conduct and making false and retaliatory allegations that other co-workers had engaged in inappropriate conduct toward her.

The suit claimed Swetnick engaged in unwelcome sexual innuendo with two male employees at a business lunch with clients present and that she claimed two other co-workers sexually harassed her.

Webtrends, a web analytics company, determined Swetnick acted inappropriately but could not prove the allegations against her co-workers.

“Based on its investigations, Webtrends determined that Swetnick had engaged in inappropriate conduct, but that no corroborating evidence existed to support Swetnick’s allegations against her coworkers,” the complaint said.

“Based on its investigations, Webtrends determined that Swetnick had engaged in inappropriate conduct, but that no corroborating evidence existed to support Swetnick’s allegations against her coworkers.”
— Complaint filed by Webtrends

The Daily Caller reported that Swetnick took a leave of absence during her employment for sinus issues in July 2000 and was given short-term disability payments.

One week after the payments stopped in mid-August, Webtrends received a note from Swetnick’s doctor claiming she suffered a nervous breakdown and needed to take another leave of absence.

Weeks later, the company was informed that she had applied for unemployment benefits in Washington, D.C.

She never explained to Webtrends' human resources staff why she applied for the benefits and claimed they had illegally tried to obtain her privileged medical information.

In 2001, after her employment with the company ended, Swetnick’s ex-boyfriend filed a restraining order against her in Florida, Politico reported.

Richard Vinneccy claimed that Swetnick threatened him and his family after he ended their four-year relationship.

“She was threatening my family, threatening my wife and threatening to do harm to my baby at that time,” Vinneccy told Politico.

"I know a lot about her. She’s not credible at all,” he said. “Not at all.”

Avenatti called Vinneccy’s assertions against his client “complete nonsense,” according to the report.

"No truth to this at all," he said.

Swetnick became the third women to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. In a sworn statement to a judge, she said Kavanaugh was “verbally abusive toward girls,” a “mean drunk” and would “spike” the punch at high school house parties.

Swetnick added that she remembered seeing Kavanaugh and other boys lined up outside a room at a party, waiting for their “turn” with an inebriated girl.

“In approximately 1982, I became the victim of one of these ‘gang’ or ‘train’ rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present,” Swetnick says in her statement, though she didn't explicitly accuse Kavanaugh of assaulting her. “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.”

On Thursday the White House instructed the FBI to question two women who have alleged sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

But the parameters of the new and limited FBI probe don’t include interviewing Swetnick, according to a report on Saturday in the Wall Street Journal.''

        6 $Trillion Debt Thx Republican Tax Cuts
        Posted on: 2018-10-03 10:37:12   By: Anonymous
         
        The estimated debt from the not needed tax cut for the .01% will be $6Trillion.
        What happened to the Republicans howling about Obama's tax cut that did mainly go to the 99% ? largest middle class tax cut ever.

        This is how the Republicans roll- run up the national debt when they can, then hand it over to the Democrats.
        It's happened 4x times now in the last 40 years.

        Republican hypocrisy.
