Kavanaugh Open Thread: Swetnick’s Ex-Boyfriend Claims She Threatened His Family, Never Spoke of Kavanaugh

Kavanaugh Open Thread: Swetnick’s Ex-Boyfriend Claims She Threatened His Family, Never Spoke of Kavanaugh

“She always wanted to be the center of attention. . .. She was exaggerating everything. Everything that came out of her mouth was just exaggerations.”

Richard Vinneccy, the ex-boyfriend of Julie Swetnick, a woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, told Laura Ingraham last night that she threatened his family and never spoke of any incidents involving Kavanaugh. He also said:

He added that while he was not aware of Swetnick’s political tendencies, “She always wanted to be the center of attention. . .. She was exaggerating everything. Everything that came out of her mouth was just exaggerations.”

If you missed Professor Jacobsen’s write-up of Swetnick’s awful NBC interview, you need to read it.

New Avenatti Witness

This woman claims she has known Ford and Swetnick for years.

Man Releases Letter on Swetnick

A man named Dennis Ketterer spoke with Sen. Orrin Hatch’s office and wrote a letter about Julie Swetnick. Hatch pointed out some of the details of the letter on Twitter:

Ford’s Exit Door Account Falling Apart

When Dr. Ford testified, she said that revealed the details of the alleged attack from Kavanaugh in 2012 while in couples therapy after her husband couldn’t understand why she wanted a “second front door.” She claimed claustrophobia and panic attacks from a previous attack.

Ford did not say when the renovation on the house took place. RealClearInvestigations reported that documents show it took place before the couples therapy:

But documents reveal the door was installed years before as part of an addition, and has been used by renters and even a marriage counseling business.

“The door was not an escape route but an entrance route,” said an attorney familiar with the ongoing congressional investigation. “It appears the real plan for the second front door was to rent out a separate room.”

Palo Alto city records show that a building permit for an additional room and exterior door was issued to Ford and her husband on Feb. 4, 2008 — more than four years before the May 2012 therapy session where, she says, she first identified Kavanaugh as her attacker.

All the remodeling, including a new bathroom, was completed by February 2010. The only additional permits issued to Ford at her Palo Alto address are for “solar panels” on the roof, a “solar hot water system” in the garage, and an “electric vehicle charge station” for the driveway — all of which were issued after 2012.

Other documents, including health care-provider registration records, reveal that a marriage counselor listed Ford’s home address as her place of employment, ostensibly using the extra room and door for her clinical practice. That marriage therapist, Sylvia Adkins Randall, sold the home to the Fords in 2007, but continued to maintain the address for her business.

Ford and her husband bought a beach home in 2007 and in July, “applied for permits to build a front porch and new decks at the home, located on Seaside Street in Santa Cruz. There is no application for a second front door, however, and the recent permits are the only ones applied for since 2007.”

Ford’s lawyers have not given the therapist notes or the name of the therapist to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley. They have given that information to the Democrats, who have not shared it with the Republicans.

Harvard Students File Title IX Complaints Against Kavanaugh

Harvard student Jacqueline Kellogg came up with the idea to file a Title IX complaint against Kavanaugh to make him stop teaching at the law school. Kellogg, along with student Julia Wiener, “argued the nominee’s presence on campus would create a ‘hostile environment’ as defined in Harvard guidelines related to sexual harassment.”

However, TWO law professors at Harvard disagree with this step:

Jeannie Suk Gersen, a professor at the Law School and a Title IX expert who has written extensively about Kavanaugh’s confirmation, said that — while she supports the students’ freedom to protest the nominee’s former teaching role at Harvard — the notion of filing Title IX complaints is “misplaced.”

“Such an abuse of process would undermine the legitimacy and credibility of complaints that the Title IX process is intended to deal with, as well as of the Title IX office to focus on its duties,” Suk Gersen wrote in an email. “It might be effective in drawing further attention to some students’ objection to Kavanaugh’s teaching appointment, but I don’t expect him to be found to have violated Harvard University’s Sexual & Gender-Based Harassment Policy based on the currently known public allegations against him.”

Janet Halley, another Law School professor with a background in Title IX law, also called the students’ strategy of filing formal complaints unlikely to succeed.

“I urge the students to divert their energy from this implausible claim that he’s going to create a sexually hostile environment by teaching at the Law School to the really grand issue of whether he’s fit to be in his current judgeship or promoted to the Supreme Court,” Halley said.

Flashback: Sen. Mazie Hirono Accepted Money From Senate Democrat Who Admitted Hitting His Wife

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) has shone in the spotlight since Kavanaugh’s nomination and has become one of the Democrats with the loudest voice on the Judiciary Committee against him. She has stated that American men have perpetuated sexual assault and they should “just shut up.”

Earlier today, Hirono told CNN she has concerns about Kavanaugh’s drinking and testimony that claims he has an aggressive personality after consuming too much alcohol.

So as Hirono has shown herself to supposedly be a supporter of women abused by men, she seems to have forgotten something she did in the past. From The Washington Free Beacon:

Hirono’s Democratic colleague in the Senate, Tom Carper (Del.), who has admitted to punching his wife hard enough to give her a black eye, appears to be getting a pass from Hirono, who, even since his admission was revealed last January, has taken campaign money from him.

Neither Hirono nor any of her Democratic colleagues have commented on the record since the Free Beacon uncovered a 1998 interview, in which Carper said, “Did I slap my wife 20 years ago? Yes.”

Not only have Democrats such as Hirono failed to address Carper’s spousal abuse committed during his first marriage when he was in his 30s, but they have also continued to take money from him for their reelections.

Hirono’s campaign took $1,000 from Carper’s First State PAC in June of this year, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Other Democrats on the committee have taken money from Carper: Feinstein, Whitehouse, and Klobuchar.

NBC Promoting Kavanaugh Perjury Piece

NBC News probably realized its reputation is done, especially after that Swetnick interview last night, so why not go all in? The publication published an article that Kavanaugh perjured himself when he told the Senate he had not “discussed or heard discussion about the incident matching the description given by Ms. Ramirez to the New Yorker” before the magazine published her claims.

As Charles Cooke points out, there is nothing that contradicts his testimony:

[Redacted Questioner]: All right. My last question on this subject is since you graduated from college, but before the New Yorker article publication on September 23rd, have you ever discussed or heard discussion about the incident matching the description given by Ms. Ramirez to the New Yorker?

Judge Kavanaugh: No.

If this were his only answer, it could at a stretch be cast as misleading — although it would be a big stretch, given that he was asked whether he’d heard about an “incident matching the description.” But — surprise! — this wasn’t his only answer. Indeed, just one page on in the transcript, Kavanaugh takes a break from protesting his innocence to tell the committee that he had heard that Ramirez was calling around before the specific accusation was made public:

[Redacted Questioner]: Well, actually, are you aware that the New York Times passed up on this story before the New Yorker ran the story? Judge Kavanaugh. That’s what I read in the New York Times. What’s your reaction to that?

Judge Kavanaugh: They couldn’t — the New York Times couldn’t corroborate this story and found that she was calling around to classmates trying to see if they remembered it. And I, at least — and I, myself, heard about that, that she was doing that. And you know, that just strikes me as, you know, what is going on here? When someone is calling around to try to refresh other people, is that what’s going on? What’s going on with that? That doesn’t sound — that doesn’t sound good to me. It doesn’t sound fair. It doesn’t sound proper. It sounds like an orchestrated hit to take me out. That’s what it sounds like.

“And I, at least — and I, myself, heard about that, that she was doing that.”

Now NBC News has updated its piece, and never made a note of that, with a reference to his testimony that contradicts the piece’s claim.

Collins Wants FBI to Investigate Swetnick’s Claims

Even though no one believes Swetnick and she has a long history of suing people and making up accusations, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) wants the FBI to investigate her claims.

From The Press Herald:

Collins and Republican Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska “advocated for the additional background investigation because she believed that it could help the senators evaluate the claims that have been brought to the Judiciary Committee,” Collins’ spokeswoman Annie Clark said in a statement to the Press Herald on Monday. “That would include the allegations that were brought by Julie Swetnick.”

Clark said FBI investigators “can determine whom they need to speak with and should follow appropriate leads. Senator Collins was encouraged by the President’s statements that he would give the FBI agents the latitude they need to do their work. It makes sense to start with the four named witnesses from the hearing and then the FBI can follow any leads that it believes need to be pursued, as Senators Flake, Murkowski, and Collins indicated at the time this agreement was made.”

Vinneccy: “You will never, ever see your unborn child alive.”

From Fox News (emphasis mine):

“Right after I broke up with her, she basically called me many times and at one point she basically said, ‘You will never, ever see your unborn child alive,'” Richard Vinneccy said on “The Ingraham Angle.”

According to Vinneccy, Swetnick told him at the time, ‘I’m just going to go over there and kill you guys.'”

Swetnick is represented by anti-Trump lawyer Michael Avenatti. He did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on Vinneccy’s allegation, but in an interview on CNN Monday night, he cast doubt on Vinneccy’s credibility and characterized him as an estranged ex-boyfriend.

Vinneccy, who said he dated Swetnick off-and-on for seven years, maintained that Swetnick never once mentioned to him her extraordinary claims, apparently made for the first time last month, that Kavanaugh had engaged in systemic gang rapes decades ago. He said the relationship spanned from 1994 to 2001.

Never, never once [did] she mention that to me,” he told host Laura Ingraham. “We used to talk about everything. She never once mentioned that at all. … If you ask me personally if I believe her, I don’t believe her. I really don’t believe her. Nobody knows Julie Swetnick better than me.”

He added that while he was not aware of Swetnick’s political tendencies, “She always wanted to be the center of attention. . .. She was exaggerating everything. Everything that came out of her mouth was just exaggerations.”

Lock her up!!

So, wait. Is Collins saying that if the FBI says they saw no reason to investigate obvious false claims, she’ll vote no? I mean, that’s what this sounds like here.

See how she’s sucking up the headlines? Very few words about Ford or Ramirez.

    redc1c4 in reply to Andy. | October 2, 2018 at 11:53 am

    Ford imploded, and she was their best shot.

    Ramirez’s story fell apart before she even got out of the gate.

    Swetnick is obviously just bat5hit crazy, right from Jump St.

    in a sane world, Kavanaugh would be @ w*rk with SCOTUS today, instead of playing silly buggers with RINOs, Demonrats & the MFM.

Well, well, well.

    Doesn’t sound like much of a bar fight. If anything sound like Kavanaugh does not back down, which is a good thing.

      alaskabob in reply to MarkSmith. | October 2, 2018 at 3:42 pm

      Alpha males are kryptonite to beta/omega males. The “civic duty” prof at NCSU (boy has my alma mater decayed) felt a Resolution 101 kumbaya approach would have been best. This just reinforces Kavanaugh doesn’t avoid the heat of battle. Maybe not the smartest move back then but shows his metal as Trump’s nominee. Remember how Hollywood used to see such guys as manly?

“…dated Swetnick off-and-on for seven years…”

IOW, in between normal girlfriends, when he wanted to get some, thus violating the precept of avoiding intimate interaction with crazy.

why hasn’t this got more attention…well, not more really how about ANY attention? Has this been debunked?

    She is in the “et al” portion of authorship but some have raised point that she or her therapist used hypnosis to “retrieve” lost memories as reason for her problems. Her full therapists’ notes are needed and she has refused to release all of reports.

      Eight hypnosis group participants …

      Is she really in the “‘et al’ portion” or the 8 participants ?

        alaskabob in reply to Neo. | October 2, 2018 at 5:18 pm

        Authors listed in the article need to have actively participated in creating the manuscript. This would include research and writing. It would not necessarily mean they were a participant in the study. Knowing about such researchers might want to “try it out” or use their personal experience to shape the study suggests she tried it… not certain… but the psychiatrist attending I had during med school clerkship had experimented with the “good stuff” such as Sandoz research grade LSD plus peyote and Ritalin. The study guide was “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” as Hunter really described well how it feels to be on these drugs. By the time I finished the rotation, I had a pretty good feel for the street drug scene in Seattle. So… yes… I bet she did use hypnosis and yes.. that blew her woke memories to bits.

          alaskabob in reply to alaskabob. | October 2, 2018 at 5:20 pm

          Only 8 participants? Duh… that is a paper worth publishing? Good grief.

          Edward in reply to alaskabob. | October 2, 2018 at 5:39 pm

          Remember that extra “front door” so she would feel safe in her house? Added in 2008, not close to the marriage therapy of 2012. Seems a Sylvia A. Randall sold the house to the Fords in 2007 and the door and a room were added to the house in 2008. The plot thickens:

          Other documents, including health care-provider registration records, reveal that a marriage counselor listed Ford’s home address as her place of employment, ostensibly using the extra room and door for her clinical practice. That marriage therapist, Sylvia Adkins Randall, sold the home to the Fords in 2007, but continued to maintain the address for her business.

          Contacted by phone, Dr. Randall expressed concern about her real estate transaction and prior relationship with Ford being reported.

          “I don’t want it to be mentioned,” she said. “It’s personal.”

          Randall is a licensed therapist who specializes in treating “disturbing memories from the past.” She supports Ford and described her allegation against Kavanaugh as “credible.”

          Sorry, forgot attribution of that info: https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2018/10/02/building_documents_undermine_fords_exit_door_account.html

          She also rented out the room to students and a “Google intern”, which she stated in her testimony, still more income production from her “safety addition” to the home.

          Also another home, purchased later did not have another door added, so I guess she no longer had need for the comfort, or at least extra income, of the second door.

NBC selectively editing/omitting details? I am shocked!!! George Zimmerman’s 911 call comes to mind.

It has been obvious for over a week that Flake, Collins and Murkowski do not want to vote for Kavanaugh. They will keep extending the FBI investigation until they find something, anything, that will give them that excuse.

Delay and delay and delay. That is the name of the game, and given these RINOs who think they have friends across the aisle, they will do the dirty work of the Democrats.

It amazes me that the left keep everyone marching in lock step, how very fascist of them, while the Republicans always have those members who will stab the party in the back.

But, yeah, zero credibility, but we must investigate any claims now, no matter how stupid.

Rush is now quoting Flake as saying that Kavanaugh is too partisan to sit on the court. It doesn’t matter what Flake promised last Friday. I am telling you that there is no way he will vote to confirm.

Hold the fucking vote and hold them all accountable who vote no! It will be the end of each one of them politically that votes against Kavsnaugh.

The more this is investigated, the more ridiculous the “transgression” committed by Kavanaugh. Threw ice cubes in a bar? What’s next, gave a wedgie to someone in the 4th grade? Conversely, the more the accusers are investigated, the crazier they sound and the “evidence” is destroyed.

This seems relevant:

    MarkSmith in reply to windbag. | October 2, 2018 at 1:57 pm

    It can be explained that as couple issues came up later, the topic of the need for the extra door came out in the therapy session. The therapy session could have happened many years after the door project because it is one of those issues that her husband brought up as a problem. I don’t think it is a smoking gun.

      Edward in reply to MarkSmith. | October 2, 2018 at 5:52 pm

      But it was a source of income. And since the door was obviously for the added rental room, did the room even connect to the home? If I added a room and entrance to that room to my home, with the intent to rent the room (at least initially) to a therapist running her practice out of the room, I would not want it to connect directly to my home. Would you?

      Edward in reply to MarkSmith. | October 2, 2018 at 5:55 pm

      Also a subsequent home had no added extra door (or room for rentals for that matter). Yet she testified that she still to last Thursday was “claustrophobic”, etc. because of the sexual assault.

There is democrat friend of Ms. Ramirez, Kerry Berchem who is the head of Akin Gump’s corporate practice claiming that Kavanaugh lied because of text messages. It just shows how far they are willing to go to make something out of nothing.

She was running for a Democrat office according to her husbands FB page. I captured a few shots of it. Her husband is Craig Goos.

Where where these people when John Edwards was having a Love Child.

Ford is a drugged-out, Leftist partisan kook, stuck in an unhappy marriage. She’s age fifty-something — going on seventy-something, due to her transparently copious prescription drug and/or alcohol intake over her lifetime. She looks like a dried-out prune after it’s been lying on a concrete sidewalk in 100-degree California sunshine for three days.

Beyond her transparent malignant narcissism and desperation for attention, it’s been postulated that there’s a big political rift between Ford and her family, dating back decades, and, that this contrived slander allegation is her way of socking it to her conservative-leaning parents and family. Sociopaths have done stranger things.

New argument is that every Republican nominated Supreme Court justice is illegitimate:

http://prospect.org/article/very-tarnished-court

Not sure what comes after this, but it will not be pretty.

“She always wanted to be the center of attention. . .. She was exaggerating everything. Everything that came out of her mouth was just exaggerations.”

This doesn’t sound terribly unusual.

The bizarre fantasies about the judge are another kettle of fish entirely. They don’t follow simply because she’s a rather pedestrian attention-whore and borderline hysteric.

Another thought on this epic saga. I’m not presenting it as profound or revelatory, inasmuch as other essayists and pundits have echoed similar thoughts. But, beyond confirming Leftists’ intrinsic, ugly, unabashed and vicious totalitarianism and jackbooted vindictiveness in the pursuit of power, the Dumb-o-crats’ odious antics throughout this Stalinist show trial have plainly demonstrated the fact that SCOTUS has acquired / been conferred far too much importance and power by the Left. Part of this is due to to the fact that the Dumb-o-crats have been happy to look to the federal judiciary as a super-legislature to help advance Leftist policy goals that cannot be advanced at the legislative level, for whatever reason.

But, this is also the result of some of the Court’s more egotistical and self-congratulatory Justices being happy to oblige their Leftist brethren with poorly-reasoned, thoroughly immodest and obnoxiously legislative-usurping rulings on a wide swath of issues that were more appropriately and more judiciously left to Congress and to state legislatures to debate and resolve, including Leftist chestnuts Griswold, Roe, Casey, Lawrence v. Texas and Obergefell.

These SCOTUS-contrived edicts, delivered from on high, deprived the citizenry of their just power and have predictably resulted in unnecessarily bitter societal strife and in ginning up the Leftist mobs, results that could have been ameliorated had state nd national legislators been empowered to act, as opposed to nine un-elected, life-tenured and capricious judges.

CaliforniaJimbo | October 2, 2018 at 3:03 pm

So now The NY Times reported on Judge Kavanaugh throwing ice in 85. That explains why the Dems want ICE abolished. They knew it would affect Kavenaugh LOL.
Maybe they hope his nomination is on the rocks.

Humor break over.

    Ice is made from water. Water is a critical natural resource. No one that waste a critical natural resource should sit on the Supreme Court.

These disgusting perpetrators of fanatical Social Justice are so out of it. They never figgered that most woemen have Grandfathers, Fathers, Brothers, Sons, Friends, that are really good White Men who love them. White Men who are good to them. These woemen will not throw them in to the den of Leftist Hyena Lesbions and Communists to be torn to bits.

Leftism is the religion of self-congratulation, and this is a religious war. Anything that enhances the power of the left is holy and righteous. BAMN is not an exaggeration.

Obama is a dope-head, born in Kenya, has fake college credentials, was disbarred (so was his fake wife, Maxine Obama), was backed by Saudi’s who financed 9/11, sat at the feet of a racist pastor for 20 years, faked writing 2 books that Bill Ayers wrote for him…

Bill Clinton is a rapist and serial wife cheater.

Hillary Clinton is a traitor and extortionist.

Diane Feinstein is in the pocket of the Chi Comms.

Who knows what the hell is really in the background of Kagan and Sotomayor (in Sotomayor’s case, she was reversed in 60% of her cases.)

Then there is the great Brett Kavanaugh. SUPREME COURT JUSTICE Brett Kavanaugh. May he serve for 50 years.

Creepy Por.n Lawyer sure knows how to pick them.

nothing?

Swetnick’s boyfriend is an adulterer. He has a family when he was seeing her. This does not speak well of him. Swetnick herself is homewrecker devoid of conscience.

Bu the way, I do not welcome the brassy announcer’s voice cutting in when I am trying to read.
