NBC Reporter: Swetnick Changed Her Story

Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has somehow changed her story from the time she penned a statement about incident, to the time she sat down with NBC's Kate Snow. 

Guy pointed out the specific narrative shifts from her statement to the interview, including how Swetnick first said that she knew Kavanaugh and Mark Judge spiked the punch at parties and gave dangerous drinks to girls, with plans to gang rape them. But in the NBC interview, she admits that she only remembers seeing the two boys near the punch, and that she never "specifically" saw either of them spike it. 

 Snow noted the discrepancies on air Monday night before the network aired the interview.

Snow said that NBC has also been reaching out to Swetnick's old acquaintances, but have so far found no one who remembers the parties she has described.

Donald Trump Jr. predicted the accuser won't face any consequences for changing her statement.

"Wasn’t her original statement sworn?" Trump Jr. asked on Twitter. "I assume because she’s liberal there will be no consequences."

Still, Swetnick's notorious client Michael Avenatti seemed confident in the story his client told NBC.
