Kavanaugh accuser: ‘I’m disgusted and appalled at the way I have been re-victimized’ | TheHill

Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, said Sunday that she is outraged by the way her allegations against Kavanaugh have been handled.

"As a sexual assault victim, I am disgusted and appalled by the way that I have been re-victimized over the last 2 weeks after I had the courage to come forward," Swetnick said in a statement released by her lawyer, possible 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Michael Avenatti.

"These attacks have included certain media 'pundits' (i.e. Chuck Todd) and politicians (i.e. senators Coons and Kennedy) claiming I should have 'shut up' and continued to stay silent about what happened to me," she explained.

"They claim my allegations were 'not helpful to the process,'" she said. "This is outrageous and shows a lack of empathy for survivors."


Julie, I empathize with you. Really.

Lie in the gutter and you get covered with dirt and get run over. Guess Julie didn't know that.
