Kavanaugh’s prep school friends say ‘Devil’s Triangle’ was a drinking game
Oct 08, 2018, 02:27
A former roommate of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court who faces numerous sexual misconduct allegations, disputed Kavanaugh's claim that he "did not drink beer to the point of blacking out" while they were in college.
'Brett Kavanaugh stood up under oath and lied about his drinking and about the meaning of words in his yearbook, ' James Roche wrote in an essay for Slate published on Wednesday.
Kavanaugh "has demonstrated a willingness to be untruthful under oath about easily verified information", said Roche.
I know this because I heard Brett and his friends using these terms on multiple occasions, ' Roche wrote, without elaborating on how he claims Kavanaugh used the phrases. "He would throw up, and then, in the morning, would have a lot of trouble getting out of bed". "I believe her, because it matches the same story I heard thirty-five years ago, although the two of us have never talked".
In this case, the lies are not trivial: His lies about sexual terms and his drinking are directly relevant to the accusations of Christine Blasey Ford and Debbie Ramirez, which both involved sexual behavior and heavy drinking.
Kavanaugh blasted the allegation and flatly disputed Roche's characterization in a phone interview with Senate investigators last week, speaking under penalty of perjury.
Roche is just one of the people who have appeared suddenly in the national narrative as the drama involving Kavanaugh had unfolded.
"An FBI supplemental background investigation that did not include an interview of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford - nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony - can not be called an investigation", the lawyers said.
"There are things that are not in the report that I'd hoped would be, but you can't find things you don't look for", said Senator Chris Coons Thursday night at a news conference in Wilmington.
The FBI interviewed several people, including three who Ford had said attended a 1982 high school gathering in suburban Maryland where she says Kavanaugh's attack occurred, plus another Kavanaugh friend.
However, Roche explained that he made a decision to speak because "Debbie needed someone to help her be heard".
In the Slate op-ed, Roche notes he was raised in a Republican family - his mother was a Republican state representative in CT and "my father owns a MAGA hat".
"I did not want to come forward", he wrote in the op-ed. Drinking too much, while "terrible" and "dangerous", was common in college, he said. "I think that contributed to some of my feelings about the fact that these guys treated women in a way that I didn't like".

The environment off the coast may become slightly more conducive for development as the system continues moving northwestward. Tropical Depression Kirk is said to be moving northwesterly at 23 miles per hour and has wind speeds of 35 miles per hour.
But after consultation with a lawyer, Ramirez told the magazine she felt confident enough in her recollection that it happened. She also accused Kavanaugh of laughing at her in the aftermath and has said the FBI should investigate the incident.
China was well placed to carry out this kind of attack, said Bloomberg , because 90% of the world's PCs are made in the country. Supermicro said it was unaware of an investigation, while U.S. investigators, including the FBI, declined to comment.

Brett Kavanaugh came out swinging against Democrats in a remarkable opening statement during Thursday's historic Senate hearing. The four-paragraph letter , addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley , R-Iowa, and ranking Democrat Sen.
Kavanaugh told Fox News in an interview broadcast Monday night that he has "always treated women with dignity and respect". Responding to Avenatti's client, Kavanaugh said in a Wednesday statement, "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".
Iran was quick to blame Israel and the U.S. for the attack, dismissing Islamic State's (IS) claim that they were behind it. Ahvaz is the capital of Iran's oil-rich Khuzestan province, which has seen attacks on oil pipelines by Arab separatists.
