Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, said Sunday she feels "re-victimized" for the way lawmakers and media have dismissed her claims.

"As a sexual assault victim, I am disgusted and appalled by the way that I have been re-victimized over the last 2 weeks after I had the courage to come forward," Swetnick said in a statement circulated by her attorney, Michael Avenatti, Sunday morning.

"These attacks have included certain media 'pundits' (i.e. Chuck Todd) and politicians (i.e. Senators Coons and Kennedy) claiming I should have 'shut up' and continued to say silent about what happened to me," she wrote, referring to NBC News anchor Chuck Todd and Sens. Chris Coons, D-Del., and John Kennedy, R-La. "This is outrageous and shows a complete lack of empathy for survivors. I had every right to come forward and I literally placed my life in jeopardy to do so."

Swetnick, in a sworn declaration, accused Kavanaugh of behaving inappropriately toward women as a teenager and facilitated gang rape at parties. Swetnick says she was a victim of rape at one of these parties, but did not assert Kavanaugh was involved even though he was allegedly present.

Kavanaugh called her accusations "ridiculous" and said they made him feel like he was in "The Twilight Zone."

Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court by the Senate on Saturday in a close 50-48 vote. He was sworn in by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts that evening.
