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

Yale classmate says Kavanaugh has

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was reportedly involved in a bar fight after a UB40 concert in 1985.

Kavanaugh was an undergrad at Yale at the time of the incident and was questioned, along with four others, by the New Haven (Connecticut) Police Department, but not arrested.

Dwayne Oxley, who lived on same floor as Kavanaugh in Ezra Stiles College, said he would typically not talk to reporters, but that he wanted to lend his voice in support of the nominee.

With the Federal Bureau of Investigation delving into Judge Kavanaugh's background - including receiving a statement from a Yale classmate who says he misrepresented the extent of his alcohol use - there's the chance more details will emerge about Judge Kavanaugh's past actions. Ludington remembers the incident as being started after Kavanaugh threw a beer at the man, but regardless of what was thrown, the fight culminated with the man, then 21-year-old Dom Cozzolino, going to the hospital after former National Basketball Association player Chris Dudley threw a glass at Cozzolino's ear, causing it to bleed. For his part, speaking to the officers, Kavanaugh did not want "to say if he threw the ice or not", the police report said.

Ludington is a professor at North Carolina State University, The New York Times reports, and he has appeared to have made small political contributions to Democratic candidates.

Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by three different women, denied in his testimony that there was any possibility he ever drank so much alcohol that he may have lapses in his memory. Throwing ice 33 years ago, or her opinion of Judge Kavanaugh in July?

"I saw him quite drunk".

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

In response to her testimony, Judge Kavanaugh said he had never assaulted her or anyone else.




Chad Ludington, another Yale classmate, told The New York Times the altercation happened while they were drinking at a bar after a concert.

Drinking as a college student is hardly unique and Ludington said he had no thought of making his story public when Kavanaugh was first nominated to the nation's highest court.

Deborah Ramirez attended Yale at the same time as Judge Kavanaugh.

Wrote Ludington: "In recent days I have become deeply troubled by what has been a blatant mischaracterization by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale".

While saying that youthful drinking should not condemn a person for life, Dr Ludington said he was concerned about Mr Kavanaugh's statements under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee. "But to lie under oath, to lie about that".

RNZ obtained a statement from James Roche who said he will not be granting any more interviews or answering any more questions at this time.

On Tuesday morning, the Fox & Friends crew was likewise angry that Kavanaugh was being questioned about the incident.

"They've been trying to destroy him", Trump said.
