Michael Avenatti released his "very credible" witness on Wednesday alleging that SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh participated in a gang rape ring when he was just 15 years old in the early 1980's.

Avenatti's client, Julie Swetnick, claims that she attended not just one, but several parties where women were drugged with spiked drinks and then raped by scores of boys. Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were allegedly "present" at these parties; Swetnick does not claim Kavanaugh assaulted her or participated in the gang rapes, nor does she name a single person beyond Kavanaugh and Judge. Not a single corroborating witness has come forward to support these wild claims that somehow escaped six FBI background checks.

Kavanaugh has issued a forceful denial, saying they are "from The Twilight Zone" and does not know Julie Swetnick.

Be that as it may, each of these allegations will get investigated and the Senate Judiciary Committee will be investigating the claims:
