A woman and friend who knew Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a high school student says allegations of sexual misconduct from a third accuser are “false.”
“This claim is absolutely false and absurd,” Meghan McCaleb, a friend of Kavanaugh’s since high school, told The Daily Signal of allegations from Julie Swetnick, which were made public Wednesday.
Swetnick, who says she is a graduate of Gaithersburg High School in Gaithersburg, Maryland, claims she saw Kavanaugh “drink excessively at many of these parties and engage in abusive and physically aggressive behavior towards girls, including pressing girls against him without their consent, ‘grinding’ against girls, and attempting to remove or shift girls’ clothing to expose private body parts.”
Gaithersburg High is a public school in Montgomery County, Maryland, about 10 miles north of Georgetown Prep, the private school Kavanaugh attended.
“We never hung out with anyone from Gaithersburg High School, there was never any drug use at our parties, and the fact that she is coming out and saying that is such an insult to Brett and to all of us,” McCaleb said.
“It makes our community look bad and our reputation, and Brett was just not like that ever. No one was.”
Swetnick is represented by lawyer Michael Avenatti, who also represented porn star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump.
