Liberal New York Times: None of Swetnick’s claims against Kavanaugh ‘could be independently corroborated’

As we reported earlier, a number of questions about accusations leveled against Judge Brett Kavanaugh by Julie Swetnick have been raised by media outlets on both sides of the political aisle.  Now, we can add the left-of-center New York Times to that list.

According to Swetnick’s account, she “witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be ‘gang raped’ in a side room or bedroom by a ‘train’ of numerous boys.”

“I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their ‘turn’ with a girl inside the room. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh.”

But, the Times said, “None of Ms. Swetnick’s claims could be independently corroborated by The New York Times, and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, declined to make her available for an interview.”

The report added:

Unlike two other women who have accused Judge Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, one who went to college with him and another who went to a sister high school, Ms. Swetnick offered no explanation in her statement of how she came to attend the same parties, nor did she identify other people who could verify her account.

In a brief interview, Mr. Avenatti said he had witnesses who could back up Ms. Swetnick’s accounts, but was not ready to present them because he was waiting to see if the Senate Judiciary Committee would begin a full investigation into her claims as he demanded, along with an F.B.I. inquiry. In her statement, Ms. Swetnick said she would be willing to appear before the committee.

Mr. Avenatti also said he was waiting to hear back from the committee before making Ms. Swetnick available for interviews. Asked why Ms. Swetnick would be attending parties with high schoolers during her college years, Mr. Avenatti said that the parties in question included people of both high school and college ages.

Color us surprised.  Not.
