Klobuchar: Kavanaugh Would Have Thrown Me Out of His Courtroom

Kavanaugh wrongly claims he could drink legally in Md Kavanaugh Apologizes for Turning Sen. Klobuchar’s Question About His Drinking Back on Her
| 01 October, 2018, 10:31

During his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee about sexual assault allegations levelled by Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh talked at length about his drinking habits as a teen.

The issue took on steam after Kavanaugh's high school friend Mark Judge - who Ford alleges was in the room when Kavanaugh allegedly attacked her - came into focus.

In a Fox News interview on Monday, Kavanaugh said, "Yes, there were parties".

And searing accusations from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh assaulted her in high school.

Brett Kavanaugh gave a spirited defense of his conduct and character at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, during which he was accused of drunken sexual assault, but mentioned drinking beer almost 30 times.

Kavanaugh: "Yeah, and I'm curious if you have". How much Kavanaugh drank at the elite Jesuit school Georgetown Prep is now the subject of fierce debate.

The 18-year-old limit "allowed friends to legally purchase beer, and for him to drink at high school parties", Shah added. I liked beer. I still like beer...

"Yes, we drank beer, my friends and I, boys and girls", Kavanaugh told the committee.

Klobuchar: "Could you answer the question, judge?"


"I liked beer. I still like beer. But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out, and I never sexually assaulted anyone".

Kavanaugh refused to say how many beers he drank.

Klobuchar said she does not know if Kavanaugh will be confirmed.

But bizarrely, a refrain of Kavanaugh's defense became repeated iterations of some version of "I like beer".

Under Maryland law, a person under the age of 21 can not consume or possess alcohol except in certain circumstances, including in a private home with the consent and under the supervision of an adult over the age of 21. "I believe that if they listen to this incredibly graceful, dignified woman yesterday, it's hard to not at least say open up the FBI investigation". Do you like beer, senator, or not?

"So you're saying there's never been a case where you drank so much that you didn't remember what happened the night before or part of what happened".

How often Kavanaugh drank to excess in high school and college, and exactly how drunk he was on those occasions, is a matter of some dispute among people who knew him then.

Kavanaugh also said that he never woke up without his clothes or forgot what happened the night before. "In your written testimony, you said sometimes you had too many drinks". Kavanaugh's bio in the senior yearbook notes that he was a member of the "Keg City Club (treasurer) - 100 Kegs or Bust". "We drink beer. We liked beer", he said.
