Avenatti, who for days has vowed to release damaging information about Kavanaugh, released the document a day prior to the Kavanaugh and California professor Christine Blasey Ford are set to testify before the Senate judiciary Committee about an alleged sexual assault while the two were in high school.
He also sent the instruction to the Committee on Wednesday, calling for the confirmation process to be postponed again.
Swetnick is the third woman forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh, stemming from his time at Georgetown Prep high school in Maryland and at Yale University.
Taylor Foy, a spokesman for Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, told Fox News that lawyers for the Committee to examine Swetnick in the Declaration.

Grassley later told reporters his lawyers to contact the individual. “Our lawyers are on it now, our staff investigators. … I can say nothing until you are ready,” he said.
Fox News said on Thursday, the hearing is still planned.
But the details instantly heats the face of Democratic calls to stop the process. “The Republicans need to immediately Judge Kavanaugh to stay the proceedings in the context of’ s nomination, and the President must open to the FBI, the background check investigation,” Senate democratic leader Chuck Schumer in a statement, while urging him, “to withdraw from consideration.”
Kavanaugh has, so far, these allegations were revealed after Avenatti for the first time some of the details, the beginning of this week. refused If you are Assembly will be asked in a Fox News interview about the claim, he and high school friend Mark judge had plied women with drugs and alcohol at parties, so that other men could rape, Kavanaugh called the charges “completely false and outrageous” and said he had never thing “such.”
Swetnick not explicitly accuse Kavanaugh, has attacked, but claims he was involved in rapes in this “gang”.
You claimed in your statement that Kavanugh was “verbally abusive to girls,” was a “mean drunk,” and would “spike”, the “punch” in the high school house parties, so that he and his friends the benefit of the girls. Swetnick adds that she remembers to see Kavanaugh and the other boys lined up outside a room in a party and waiting for their “turn” with a drunk girl.
“In about 1982, I became a rape victim of one of these ‘gang’ or ‘train’, where Mark judges and Brett Kavanaugh were in attendance,” Swetnick said in the statement. “In the incident, I was motionless to rape without my consent and defense of the guys, me. I think I was drugged with Quaaludes, or something similar, which I had been drinking.”
Avenatti, porn star Stormy Daniels in her case against President Trump is flirting with a Democratic presidential candidate running, was under increasing pressure to publicly the name of his client in the midst of the allegations against Kavanaugh. Earlier in the week, an anonymous post by a user on the troll-cave-site of 4Chan claimed that the woman really exists, but it was a joke, the lawyer moved. Avenatti rejected the demand and, on Wednesday, it came on with the explanation.
Avenatti said that Swetnick has multiple security clearances from the U.S. government, including the Ministry of foreign Affairs and the Ministry of justice.
He added that there are many, many “voting agreement to confirm the end of the witnesses are true,” the woman’s account and that of his client submit to a polygraph test, if Kavanaugh, to do the same. He also called for an FBI investigation of the woman’s allegations.
“We demand an immediate FBI investigation of the allegations,” he tweeted. “Under no circumstances will a Brett Kavanaugh should not be confirmed, lacks a complete and comprehensive investigation.”
Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied ever sexually attacked someone.
The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday released Kavanaugh’s prepared testimony before the Thursday hearing. In it, Kavanaugh, he says, “never sexually molesting anyone – not in school, not in College, not always.”
“Sexual violence is appalling,” he says. “It is morally wrong. It is illegal. It is contrary to my religious beliefs.”
Kavanaugh told Fox News in an interview aired Monday night that he “always treated women with dignity and respect.”
Kavanaugh added that he made the unusual decision to do a television interview to defend in front of a Senate Committee vote on his nomination, because he wants to clear his name and said he was “looking for a fair process, a process where I can, my integrity and my name. And all I want is justice and that I be heard.”
