"He Likes Beer": Trump Says Kavanaugh Had "Bit Of Difficulty" With Liquor
Oct 02, 2018, 08:37
In a statement released Sunday, a Yale University classmate of Brett Kavanaugh'ssaid he is "deeply troubled by what has been a blatant mischaracterization by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale". Trump asked, mentioning a term he has used in the past to denigrate Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russia's role in the 2016 US presidential election. She mostly questioned the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, for Republican senators, who later took over questioning of Kavanaugh. "For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee".
Mr Kavanaugh also denies that allegation. "I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes".
Kavanaugh admitted being a heavy drinker as a student and said he still likes beer.
"I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion", the president tweetedlate Saturday.
In a remarkable moment, Trump tried to downplay Kavanaugh's high school drinking. During the rounds of questioning by senators and a hired prosecutor, Rachel Mitchell, Kavanaugh was dogged in his attempts to dismantle the image of him as an aggressive, frequent drinker who would often consume alcohol to the point of blacking out.
Kavanaugh's high school friend Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the room when a drunken Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, said he will co-operate with any law enforcement agency that will "confidentially investigate" sexual misconduct allegations against him and Kavanaugh.
"He had a little bit of difficulty, he talked about things that happened when he drank", Mr Trump said.

While the White House has denied setting limits on the Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry, Norman Eisen, who was special counsel for ethics under President Barack Obama, tweeted that it would be highly unusual if it were to do so.
"That's not the kind of investigation that all of us are expecting the FBI to conduct", she said. White House counsel Donald McGahn is reportedly the administration official most involved in shaping the inquiry.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said the investigation will be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition". Kavanaugh told the Senate panel that he had gone through six background checks, "six separate FBI background investigations over 26 years". If Kavanaugh is confirmed, that could increase the number of women and liberals who turn out to vote. Kavanaugh has denied all accusations of sexual misconduct decades ago. He accused Democrats of politicising the process and harming his family and good name. He has denied both accusations. Absolutely. I have a very open mind.
"Brett was a sloppy drunk, and I know because I drank with him", Swisher told the Post. She stood out as being exceptionally honest, with a trusting manner.
"Can you imagine if I had, what a mess I'd be?" he joked. She felt that everyone at Yale was very rich, very smart and very sophisticated and that as a Puerto Rican woman from a less privileged background she was an outsider. "But the only response we've gotten are emails saying that our emails have been 'received'".
"Based on my time with Debbie, I believe her to be unusually honest and straightforward and I can not imagine her making this up". Indeed, athletes formed the core of Brett's social circle.
