Yale classmate says Kavanaugh has 'not told the truth' about his drinking

In the report, a New Haven police officer wrote that after 1 a.m. on September 26, 1985, a man found bleeding from the ear told officers that another man - identified in the report as Kavanaugh - "threw ice at him for some unknown reason". It appears to coincide with an incident described by a former Yale classmate of Kavanaugh's who remembers Kavanaugh throwing his beer at a man.

The victim of the incident, Dom Cozzolino, was reportedly hit in the ear with glass by Chris Dudley, a Yale basketball player and Kavanaugh's friend.

Cozzolino "was bleeding from the right ear", according to the report, and he was later treated at a local hospital. The Times spoke to Charles Ludington, a onetime friend of Kavanaugh's and Dudley's, who said he was there when Kavanaugh flung his beer in a man's face at Demery's, a now-closed bar on Broadway, jumpstarting a brawl that led to Dudley's arrest.

Kavanaugh's former Yale classmate Charles "Chad" Ludington said Kavanaugh had "mischaracterized" his college drinking in his testimony before the Senate Judiciary committee last week, which is now looking into several allegations of sexual assault against the judge.

Chad Ludington, one of Kavanaugh's college friends, told the New York Times that the altercation occurred after attending a UB40 concert.

Ludington said Dudley took a pint glass or beer bottle and smashed it against the man's head.

The past of Kavanaugh, Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, is under intense scrutiny during his Senate confirmation process.


"I do not believe that the heavy drinking or even loutish behavior of an 18- or even 21-year-old should condemn a person for the rest of his life", wrote Ludington.

The FBI is expected to send Congress a report on its revived sexual harassment investigation of Brett Kavanaugh as soon as Wednesday afternoon, Republican senators said of the pivotal document that could make or break his Supreme Court nomination. "She is not a newsroom reporter", The Times reported. The New Haven Police Department questioned him and four others, but no one was arrested and no charges were filed. "The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so".

Prof Ludington, who teaches at North Carolina State University, said he had seen Judge Kavanaugh slurring his words and staggering after excessive alcohol consumption while at Yale.

The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment Monday.

In New Haven, where Yale students drive the nightlife and bar fights are not uncommon, Hartman said it was unusual to have national media clamoring for a two-page police report of an incident that was unremarkable, if not for the people involved. Brett drank and I drank. "But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out and I did not sexually assault anyone", he said.

"I can unequivocally say that in denying the possibility that he ever blacked out from drinking, and in downplaying the degree and frequency of his drinking, Brett has not told the truth".

"I bet Donald Trump never even got bullied, because if they ever took his lunch money, the bullies would instantly be in a higher tax bracket", Noah joked, channeling the bully: "I really want to give him a wedgie, but my accountant says it's not worth it".
