Swetnick says Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, drugged her and other women at high school parties where they were raped by several men.
"Avenatti is a third-rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh", Trump tweeted from a United Nations luncheon event Wednesday.
Judge's name has come up so often in the various allegations against Kavanaugh and in Thursday's hearing that it beggars belief he still hasn't been called to testify. "I don't know who this is, and this never happened", he said in a statement Wednesday.
The fresh allegations include a claim by a woman that Brett Kavanaugh "assaulted a woman he was dating in 1998 while working for independent counsel Ken Starr", according to the complaint. If what Swetnick alleges is true-that there were "many" parties at which "boys lined up" outside of rooms to commit "gang rape"-then there must exist many victims, many perpetrators, and many witnesses".
Swetnick, a resident of Washington, D.C., said she was a graduate of Gaithersburg High School in Maryland.

The offensive line looked shaky at best against San Francisco and Green Bay, but the wheels downright fell off against Buffalo. I was ready to roast Sean McDermott for making us believe he was the real deal. "It looked like he played with a clear mind".
Despite that, Feinstein pushed him on those accusations and discussed the lack of an FBI investigation, and Kavanaugh pushed back.
Trump Jr. wrote, citing Swetnick's statement that she witnessed assaults and misconduct at approximately 10 house parties.
"This morning Michael Avenatti provided a declaration to the Judiciary Committee", spokesman Taylor Foy said.
Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer has called for Judge Kavanaugh to withdraw his candidacy in light of the allegations against him.
"Now, there is a clear pattern of behavior that has arisen and frankly, the latest allegations from Julie Swetnick are particularly disturbing", Clark said.
New Accuser Says Kavanaugh Was Present at Sexual Attacks in High School
Now we have the most shocking allegation yet, courtesy of Michael Avenatti, known to the world as Stormy Daniels's lawyer. The latest allegation comes from a woman named Julie Swetnick , who attended Gaithersburg High School in Maryland.
The most recent allegation was brought forward by adult film star Stormy Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti.
This is consistent with the account of Kavanaugh's freshman roommate at Yale, who said in a statement, "although Brett was normally reserved, he was a notably heavy drinker, even by the standards of the time, and that he became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk".
Swetnick told Heilemann, "Brett Kavanaugh is going for a seat where he's going to have that seat on the Supreme Court for the rest of his life".
"My client deserves the right to be placed under oath and testify", he urged, including an email sent to Judiciary Committee chief counsel Mike Davis.
Trump has repeatedly questioned why Professor Ford had not reported the crimes earlier and branded the whole situation a "big fat con". "I don't know what his reputation as a lawyer is. According to Swetnick, the only way for this process to be "just" is to investigate her claim and those put forth by multiple other women". "The standard of character and fitness for a position on the nation's highest court must be higher than this".

Kavanaugh, who along with Ford is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, denies the allegations. Despite the forceful rhetoric by Kavanaugh and his GOP supporters, it remained unclear how three moderate Republicans _ Sens.
