If you read about Julie Swetnick, he whole life sounds like a scam. She was accused by two male co-workers of making unwanted sexual advances in front of their customers. They filed a complaint against her. When she found out they had complained, she immediately filed sexual harassment charges against them.
Her employer, Portland-based Webtrends, then filed a lawsuit against her for fraud and assorted other misdeeds including filing false charges against the two male employees. On her resume, she claimed to have a degree from John Hopkins University. JHU notified WebTrends that she never was enrolled there, let alone earn a degree.
Swetnick, 55, became the third woman in recent weeks to raise allegations against Kavanaugh. She issued a statement Wednesday in which she claimed she’d observed Kavanaugh at alcohol-fueled parties where women were mistreated. Her attorney is Michael Avenatti, a fierce critic of President Donald Trump who is reportedly considering a presidential run in 2020. Avenatti also represents Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress who claims to have had an affair with Trump before he took office.
The lawsuit was dismissed shortly after it was filed late in 2000, court documents show. In emails to The Oregonian/OregonLive, Avenatti called the allegations against his client, “Completely bogus.”
“This lawsuit never had any merit as evidenced by how quickly it was dismissed,” Avenatti wrote. “It was originally filed in retaliation for my client making claims against the company.”
Avenatti lied. The company filed the charges and then Swetnick followed, not the other way around. The Swetnick collected unemployment illegally when she told them she quit voluntarily and not fired for cause. She then attempted to say she was injured while on the job, but that claim was denied.
