According to Swetnick's sworn declaration, tweeted by Avenatti minutes before he posted a photo of Swetnick, the accuser said she first met Kavanaugh and Judge at a Washington, DC-area house party sometime between 1980 and 1981.

The woman also made other accusations in her statement.

CNN and the Associated Press have not yet been able to corroborate Swetnick's story. On the eve of testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ford's legal team have released witness statements that would have more use serving as place mats.

Avenatti declined to expand on the allegation in an interview Wednesday on ABC's "The View", saying he would not add detail beyond what was in the statement.

Avenatti is best known as the lawyer for Stephanie Clifford, the adult film star known as Stormy Daniels who says she had an affair with Trump before he was elected president.

Ford alleged that Kavanaugh held her down and tried to remove her clothes while they were both in high school.

"I strongly believe Judge Kavanaugh should withdraw from consideration", Schumer said in a statement.

The other three declarations are from friends of Ford who say that she told them about the assault before Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court.

In his tweets, Avenatti includes emails sent to Mike Davis, Chief Counsel for Nominations, United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary, about having Swetnick (who is now the third woman to publicly accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct) testify about the accusations.

"The Senate Judiciary Committee's investigators are more than capable of investigating the claims presented by Mr. Avenatti", Davis responded in the release. He also claims to have been a virgin in high school.

"To me, these are clearly attempts, and frankly attempts by the Democrats that I think they ought to in many cases be ashamed of, to try at the 11th hour to destroy the reputation of an individual based upon, I would argue pretty flimsy evidence", Thune said. The hearing will occur days after a second woman, Deborah Ramirez, told The New Yorker that when she and Kavanaugh were in college together, he exposed himself to her at a dormitory party. Christine Blasey Ford drew on her training as a psychologist.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

In one of the declarations in support of Ford, her husband, Russell, writes that he found out about his wife's sexual assault "around the time we got married" but that he did not know the details until 2012 when she told him her alleged attacker was Kavanaugh. "These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh".

"It's possible I'll hear that and I'll say, 'Hey, I'll change my mind, '" Trump said.

The hearing, in which Kavanaugh and Ford, a Palo Alto, Calif., professor, will address the committee separately, comes as a third accuser said she was a victim of a gang rape orchestrated in part by Kavanaugh.
