Michael Avenatti was promising that he would do in Judge Brett Kavanaugh with his client, Julie Swetnick. But as time as progressed, more and more has been coming out on her.

Swetnick does not claim that she was assaulted by Kavanaugh in any way. She claims she attended at least ten parties where girls were ‘gang-raped’ by boys and that she saw Kavanaugh and Mark Judge at those parties. She claims she was gang-raped at one of the parties but kept going to the parties.

Not only was her claim of ‘gang rape’ parties ridiculous and refuted by 60 of Kavanaugh’s fellow high school students from both Georgetown Prep and sister schools who said no such thing ever occurred and they’d never heard of her, but her questionable actions in the past are now starting to roll out.

Turns out that she had a lawsuit filed against her by a former employer for alleged sexual harassment of fellow co-workers. And the employer alleged that she also lied about her work experience.

From Oregon Live:

In the suit, Webtrends alleged Swetnick claimed to have graduated from Johns Hopkins University but the company said it subsequently learned the school had no record of her attendance. Webtrends said she also “falsely described her work experience” at a prior employer.

The suit also alleges Swetnick “engaged in unwelcome, sexually offensive conduct” while at Webtrends and “made false and retaliatory allegations that other co-workers had engaged in inappropriate conduct toward her.”

The suit alleges Swetnick “engaged in unwelcome sexual innuendo and inappropriate conduct” directed at two male employees during a business lunch, with Webtrends customers present. Swetnick claimed two other employees had sexually harassed her, according to the suit.

The company said in the suit that they had determined that she “engaged in misconduct” but could not confirm her claims against the co-workers.

The company also claimed that she took medical leave from them while also getting unemployment in Washington, D.C.

She ultimately walked back the allegations against her colleagues.

From Daily Caller:

In July, one month after the alleged incident, Swetnick took a leave of absence from the company for sinus issues, according to the complaint. WebTrends said it made short-term disability payments to her until mid-August that year. One week after the payments stopped, WebTrends received a note from Swetnick’s doctor claiming she needed a leave of absence for a “nervous breakdown.”

The company said it continued to provide health insurance coverage for Swetnick, despite her refusal provide any additional information about her alleged medical condition.

In November, the company’s human resources director received a notice from the Washington, D.C. Department of Unemployment that Swetnick had applied for unemployment benefits after claiming she left WebTrends voluntarily in late September.

“In short, Swetnick continued to claim the benefits of a full-time employee of WebTrends, sought disability payments from WebTrends’ insurance carrier and falsely claimed unemployment insurance payments from the District of Columbia,” the complaint states.

Webtrends voluntarily dismissed their complaint after a month, why is unclear. They have not commented on the matter to media.

Michael Avenatti, Swetnick’s lawyer, told the DCNF, that it was dismissed because it was “completely bogus.” He claimed their suit was filed after she pursued claims against the company.

This follows prior reports that Swetnick had sued another employer for sexual harassment and was represented by Debra Katz in that suit.

Katz is now the lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford, recommended reportedly by Sen. Dianne Feinstein. What a coincidence.

And Swetnick’s former boyfriend, Richard Vinnecy, filed for a restraining order in 2001 against Swetnick claiming that Swetnick threatened him, his wife and his baby. The filing was dismissed for “non-ability to advance fees.” He told Politico, “She’s not credible at all. Not at all.”
