Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee released a statement Tuesday that details the sexual preferences of Julie Swetnick, one of the women who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, the Washington Post reported.
The statement came from Dennis Ketterer, a former Democratic congressional candidate and television meteorologist, who said he and Swetnick briefly dated in 1993. It was sent to the hundreds of journalists on the Judiciary Committee’s press list.
Swetnick claimed that Kavanaugh was at the party in high school where she was a victim of gang rape. He denied the allegations.

In a revealing statement, Ketterer said he does not believe Swetnick’s allegations against Kavanaugh “based on my direct experience with Julie,” according to The Daily Beast.
He wrote that Swetnick once told him that she liked group sex with multiple men, which she first tried back in high school, the Post reported. That led to the end of their relationship, which lasted for a “couple of weeks” and didn’t include intercourse.
Ketterer insists that she never mentioned being sexually assaulted in anyway, and Kavanaugh’s name never came up.
Michael Avenatti, Swetnick’s attorney, told The Daily Beast that the letter was “complete garbage,” “bogus” and “highly inappropriate.” He is calling on the FBI to investigate.
