The sworn declaration from Julie Swetnick, who has worked in the Department of Treasury, for the U.S. Mint, and the IRS, is out. Not only is Swetnick making this declaration "under penalty of perjury and under the laws of the United States" but it appears that she's ready to produce other witnesses that will corroborate her story. Page 3 of Swetnick's statement is below.


One thing's clear. If the United States Senate goes forward with the confirmation process without looking into these allegations, or asking for the FBI to investigate, it's clear this process was never about finding the most qualified person to fill a vacant seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. The GOP's rushed push for confirmation will be revealed for being all about getting someone who's going to help pursue and solidify the GOP's corporatist and financial sector friendly policies.

Worse, a rushed confirmation will demonstrate that the Republicans want someone (that would be Kavanaugh) to be the swing (5-4) vote on issues relating to the criminal charges that will surely follow if (when?) the Democrats gain control of either the U.S. Senate or the House.

What a mess.
