Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) reacted on "Outnumbered Overtime" to the third sexual misconduct accusation against Brett Kavanaugh.

Attorney Michael Avenatti identified Julie Swetnick on Wednesday, who claimed that Kavanaugh took part in "gang" rapes during 1980s high school parties.

Swetnick also said in her "sworn declaration" that she had also been a victim of one of the incidents, during which Kavanaugh was allegedly present.

Cassidy criticized Avenatti for using his platform for attention, noting rumors of a potential 2020 presidential run by the Stormy Daniels lawyer.

"Clearly, he is a guy all about publicity," Cassidy said. "But this is the weaponization of the MeToo movement."

Wednesday's accusation was announced on the eve of the Supreme Court nominee's hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee with Christine Blasey Ford.

Cassidy questioned Avenatti's credibility and called the accusation part of a "tactic" created by the left.

"At some point, you have to see a tactic as part of a larger strategy," he said. "I think we should go ahead with the vote."

Kavanaugh denied Wednesday's accusation, calling it "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone" and adding that he doesn't know who Swetnick is.
