UPDATE below: Kavanaugh responds to gang rape allegations
This is a developing story. Return to this post for updates.
UPDATE 2Below is my correspondence to Mr. Davis of moments ago, together with a sworn declaration from my client. We demand an immediate FBI investigation into the allegations. Under no circumstances should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed absent a full and complete investigation. pic.twitter.com/QHbHBbbfbE— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) September 26, 2018
Here is a picture of my client Julie Swetnick. She is courageous, brave and honest. We ask that her privacy and that of her family be respected. pic.twitter.com/auuSeHm5s0— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) September 26, 2018
The full declaration.
UPDATE 5I have no idea if Julie Swetnick is telling the truth. I can say this: submitting a sworn affidavit carries with it criminal liability if she perjured herself.— Bradley P. Moss (@BradMossEsq) September 26, 2018
Also, as a clearance holder, giving perjured statements would be a career-ender. Take that for what it's worth.

Schumer: “Republicans need to immediately suspend the proceedings related to Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination, and the president must order the FBI to reopen the background check investigation.”
Kavanaugh responds to gang rape allegations:
"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don’t know who this is and this never happened."
