Weatherman Says Swetnick Confessed to Enjoying Group Sex

A Washington, D.C., weatherman, who claims to have been romantically involved with Julie Swetnick, said in a sworn statement provided to the Judiciary Committee this week that she confessed to enjoying group sex.

Dennis Ketterer claims to have met Swetnick in a Washington, D.C., bar in 1993 and says he spent time with her on a regular basis over the ensuing weeks before breaking things off when he learned about her admitted penchant for engaging in group sex.

“During our conversation about sexual preferences, things got derailed when Julie told me she liked to have sex with more than one guy at one time. In fact, sometimes with several at one time. She wanted to know if that would be ok in our relationship,” Ketterer wrote in his statement, submitted under penalty of perjury.

Swetnick’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, called Ketterer’s claims “garbage” and demanded that he be prosecuted for perjury.

Swetnick initially accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting girls at a series of parties in suburban Maryland when he was in high school and implied that he participated in gang rapes during those gatherings.

During an interview with Swetnick that aired on Monday night, NBC News disclosed that it was unable to confirm her allegations, as none of the witnesses she provided could attest to her presence at parties attended by Kavanaugh. NBC News also told viewers that Swetnick deviated from her initial sworn statement during the interview, backing off her claim that Kavanaugh “spiked” the punch at high-school parties with drugs or alcohol in order to take advantage of the female attendees.
