  • President Trump participates in a roundtable with supporters in Southaven, Miss.
  • The President hosts a Make America Great Again rally in Southaven, Miss.

Kavanaugh watch

The Kavanaugh FBI investigation continues to move forward. We learned yesterday that purported co-gang rapist Mark Judge has already spoken with the FBI, although his interviews have not been completed.

Some crackerjack who hired Michael Avenatti as her lawyer jumped on the Kavanaugh rape train once the Democrats put out the casting call, spoke with MSNBC yesterday for her 15 minutes of rape culture fame.

“Before this happened to me, at that party, I saw Brett Kavanaugh there,” Swetnick said in a prerecorded interview on MSNBC. “I saw Mark Judge there. And they were hanging about the area where I started to feel disoriented and where the room was, and where the other boys were hanging out. And laughing. I could hear them laughing and laughing.”

“I saw him giving red Solo cups to quite a few girls during that time frame, and there was grain punch at those parties, and I would not take one of those glasses from Mark Kavanaugh — Brett Kavanaugh, excuse me,” Swetnick said.

“I saw him around the punch — I won’t say bowls — or the punch containers,” she added. “I don’t know what he did. But I saw him by them, yes.”

“He was very aggressive. Very sloppy drunk. Very mean drunk,” Swetnick said. “I saw him go up to girls and paw on them, try to, you know, get a little too handsy, touching them in private parts. I saw him try to shift clothing.”

She also claims she saw Kavanaugh “push girls against walls,” adding: “He would pretend to stumble, and stumble into them and knock them into a wall. He would push his body against theirs. He would grope them.”

Here are her claims about her situation and Kavanaugh:

On Sunday, Swetnick detailed her alleged sexual assault at the hands of several boys roughly three decades ago, calling the experience “probably the most horrendous, awful thing that could happen to any human being.”

Swetnick claimed she “started not to feel very well” at one of the parties where Kavanaugh and Judge were present. She said she was “shoved into a room,” had her “clothes torn in different directions” and was “touched everywhere” on her body.

“I was physically assaulted in every way you can possibly physically assault a woman,” Swetnick said. “It was horrible. I had no way to fend them off.”

Though Swetnick could not confirm that Kavanaugh was a participant in her assault, she said she believed he was ultimately involved in what she described as coordinated attempts to gang-rape girls at parties.

“I would say yes,” Swetnick said. “It’s just too coincidental.”

Right. OK. She can’t say if Kavanaugh ever assaulted her but let’s put her on TV to tell her story! Here’s some info on Ms. Swetnick and she doesn’t seem very credible:

Apparently, Kavanaugh and/or his team were sending text messages to people who could contradict another accuser’s allegation that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her and made her touch his penis at some Yale party. I guess he’s not supposed to defend himself or mount a defense.

If you were thinking of taking a class with Judge Kavanaugh next year, think again: Harvard canceled a course he was set to teach for the 2019 school year. We don’t know why, but this message came from the university: “Today, Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered,” reads an announcement sent by the associate dean and dean for academic and faculty affairs, Catherine Claypoole.

Majority Leader McConnell said yesterday that the Senate will be voting on Kavanaugh this week, so our long national nightmare might soon be over. Just kidding. It’s not going to be over because the resistance media will just pivot back the Mueller investigation.
