Kavanaugh accuser says he doesn't belong on Supreme Court

September 27, 2018 - 9:35 am

WASHINGTON (AP) — A woman who came forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh says he doesn't belong on the nation's highest court.

Julie Swetnick said in an interview with Showtime's "The Circus" that she didn't want to come forward a day before Kavanaugh was set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee but that "circumstances brought it out that way." An excerpt of her interview was released Thursday.

In a sworn statement, Swetnick accused Kavanaugh and his high school friend Mark Judge of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women, among other accusations.

The Associated Press hasn't been able to corroborate the claims and continues to investigate. Both Kavanaugh and Judge have denied misconduct.

Swetnick says she wants the American public to have the facts and "judge for themselves."
