Brett Kavanaugh's Yale Classmates Dispute Heavy Drinking Claims

WASHINGTON DC- SEPTEMBER 27 Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill

The Yale-attending Kavanaugh was questioned by police after the bar fight in 1985, as reported by The New York Times. Kavanaugh's basketball teammate friend Chris Dudley, who went on to play in the NBA, allegedly threw a glass at the man, cutting his ear. In the police report, Kavanaugh was questioned about apparently "throwing ice" at a man, an action that he denied at the time.

Another of Kavanaugh's Yale classmates, Charles Ludington, described this incident to The Washington Post, saying it occurred after a UB40 concert.

Ludington said he felt it was his civic duty to tell of his experience drinking with Kavanaugh, and said in his statement he is going to take his information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Honesty is one of the things you most want in a Supreme Court justice, Noah explained, and there are "more and more signs Kavanaugh might not have enough of it, especially when it comes to his history with drinking".

On the flipside, Roche said he has several reasons to distrust Kavanaugh. Judge is one of multiple people the FBI has already interviewed as part of its reopened background investigation into Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh has not yet responded to this report, but has previously insisted that any accusations of sexual misconduct or aggressive behavior while drinking are entirely unfounded.




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

"On many occasions I heard Brett slur his words and saw him staggering from alcohol consumption", Ludington wrote.

"There's no problem with drinking beer in college". But when it comes to the frequency and severity of his drinking there, some former classmates are raising questions about how truthful Kavanaugh was in his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee and offering to tell FBI investigators what they know. "The problem is lying about it", Swisher said on "Cuomo Prime Time".

Christine Blasey Ford testified last week Kavanaugh was drunk when he sexually assaulted her at a house party in the early 1980s, although some of her details about the event itself have varied over time and she has no corroborating witnesses.

Between the repeated lies to the Senate, the accusations of sexual assault, and the history of excessive drinking, Brett Kavanaugh's act as a flawless gentleman has worn thin as more information about his past continues to trickle out.

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.
