Brett Kavanaugh lied about drinking - classmate


A witness to the fight said that Chris Dudley, a Yale basketball player who was friends with Mr. Kavanaugh, then hit the man in the ear with a glass, according to the police report, which was obtained by The New York Times.

New York Times writer Emily Bazelon helped write a blockbuster story this week that revealed Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, once threw ice at another guy in a bar 30 odd years ago.

Charles Ludington, a Yale classmate of SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh who spent time drinking with the judge, released a statement on Sunday night to the press, accusing Kavanaugh of lying under oath about his drinking.

Cozzolino was treated in hospital for his injuries after he was left bleeding from his ear, according to the police report.

Kavanaugh, 53, has vehemently denied Ramirez's accusations and Roche conceded he didn't know for a fact whether the alleged incident ever took place.

Ali Campbell, the lead singer of UB40, says "It wasn't me!" at a bar in New Haven, Conn. after a concert in 1985.

In addition to the sexual assault claim against him, people are zeroing in on another the reason world's angriest calendar enthusiast Brett Kavanaugh may not be fit for the Supreme Court, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah told his viewers.

She said Mr Kavanaugh was "very inebriated", and feared he was "accidentally going to kill me". Ludington said he often saw Kavanaugh "staggering from alcohol consumption", and said he often became "belligerent and aggressive" while drinking.

On Sunday, Ludington said publicly that he meant to discuss the incident with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in Raleigh, N.C., where he is an associate professor at North Carolina State University.

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

Hartman, the police spokesman, said the 33-year-old report offers no indication Kavanaugh, Dudley or anyone else questioned by police were drunk.

The first woman to come forward with allegations against Mr Kavanaugh was psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford. The man ended up swinging at Kavanaugh, and a fight ensued.

The report got swift pushback from the Trump team, with spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders describing the account in which police investigated Kavanaugh's allegedly drunken violent behavior and he refused to answer their questions as "desperate".

Democrats have seized on Kavanaugh's indignant, emotional testimony before the Judiciary Committee to question whether he has the temperament for a lifetime appointment on the nation's highest court.
