It has now been revealed that Julie Swetnick, the third woman who has publicly accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has an ex-boyfriend who filed a restraining order against her after accusing her of domestic violence.
The restraining order was filed against Swetnick in Miami, Florida. Politico reports that “a Miami-Dade County court docket shows a petition for injunction against Swetnick was filed March 1, 2001, by her former boyfriend, Richard Vinneccy.”
Vinneccy spoke to Politico on Wednesday, stating that he had spent four years dating Swetnick. Just thirteen days after the injunction was filed, the case was dismissed. After that, an “affidavit of non-ability to advance fees.” was filed.
Swetnick’s former boyfriend states that she threatened him following the messy break-up. He claims that she continued threatening him after he married his wife and the two had a baby.
He said during the phone interview with Politico, “Right after I broke up with her, she was threatening my family, threatening my wife and threatening to do harm to my baby at that time. I know a lot about her.”
He went on, “She’s not credible at all. Not at all.”
It’s likely that the allegation against Swetnick will serve as a crushing blow to her credibility when it comes to her own accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Late on Wednesday evening, creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti, who went public with the news of Swetnick’s accusations against Kavanaugh, stated that he did not know anything about the alleged restraining order. He then stated that it was an irrelevant line of questioning.
He stated, “Complete nonsense. No truth to this at all. Her ex-boyfriend fraudulently used her resume to apply for and obtain jobs and was caught by her. Why are you all attacking a sexual assault victim? Would that be appropriate in a court of law?”
Citing the sensitive nature of the case and the explosive politics surrounding it, Vinneccy said he wanted to talk to an attorney first before further discussing the case, which has kept him occupied all day.
“My phone has not stopped since this morning. Everyone is calling,” Vinneccy said.
Vinneccy, 63, is a registered Democrat, according to Miami-Dade County voting records.
Swetnick was identified on Wednesday by Avenatti, who produced a sworn statement asserting that she met Kavanaugh in the 1980-1981 time period and subsequently attended more than 10 house parties where she said Kavanaugh and a close friend of his, Mark Judge, attended.
In her sworn statement, Julie Swetnick didn’t accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her, however she does claim that he was there when she was “gang raped” by numerous high school boys at a party.
Vinneccy was very clear that he wasn’t buying his ex-girlfriend’s story.
He said, “I have a lot of facts, evidence, that what she’s saying is not true at all. I would rather speak to my attorney first before saying more.”
Avenatti called the reports “outrageous,” even accusing the media of “digging into the past” of a woman who has matured and is willing to testify.
“I am disgusted by the fact that the press is attacking a sexual assault victim,” Avenatti said.
Avenatti stated “I don’t know one way or another,” when asked if the allegations against Swetnick were true.
Here it comes.
