On Wednesday, Politico reported that Julie Swetnick, a woman who accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of participating in drunken gang rapes at high school parties in the 1980s, was the target of a restraining order filed by an ex-boyfriend in 2001.
According to Politico, Richard Vinneccy said they dated for four years before breaking up. Miami-Dade County court records show that a petition for injunction against Swetnick was filed on March 1, 2001.
Politico went on to report that things didn’t end well between Vinneccy and Swetnick (Emphasis added):
Thirteen days later, the case was dismissed, not long after an affidavit of non-ability to advance fees was filed.
According to Vinneccy, Swetnick threatened him after they broke up and even after he got married to his current wife and had a child.
“Right after I broke up with her, she was threatening my family, threatening my wife and threatening to do harm to my baby at that time,” Vinneccy said in a telephone interview with POLITICO. “I know a lot about her.”
“She’s not credible at all,” he told Politico. “Not at all.”
Vinneccy, a 63-year-old registered Democrat, says he does not believe her claim against Kavanaugh.
“I have a lot of facts, evidence, that what she’s saying is not true at all,” he said. “I would rather speak to my attorney first before saying more.”
Swetnick’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, said he knew nothing about the restraining order, despite a previous claim that he had vetted her. Nevertheless, he defended his client, while attacking Vinneccy.
“Complete nonsense. No truth to this at all. Her ex-boyfriend fraudulently used her resume to apply for and obtain jobs and was caught by her,” Avenatti said. “Why are you all attacking a sexual assault victim? Would that be appropriate in a court of law?”
Avenatti, however, said he was unsure if the report of a restraining order is true. “I don’t know one way or another,” he said, promising to research the matter further.
Additionally, we now know that Swetnick and Ford, the first Kavanaugh accuser, have a very interesting link, namely, Debra Katz, the attorney representing Ford, who ran the firm that represented Swetnick in a sexual harassment claim against a former employer a decade ago.
