Kavanaugh's Freshman Roommate James Roche Says Kavanaugh Lied

I would tell them this: Brett Kavanaugh stood up under oath and lied about his drinking and about the meaning of words in his yearbook.

On Sept. 27, Kavanaugh testified to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, after California professor Christine Blasey Ford said that he sexually assaulted her at a party when they were teenagers in the early 1980s.

Roche added that Kavanaugh was also a "heavy drinker" and "became aggressive and belligerent when he was drunk".

"Or who contacted us because they were alarmed that it seemed to them Judge Kavanaugh was being unjustly accused and they wanted an opportunity for these accusations to be further investigated and resolved or cleared", said Coons.

Though he said he has no personal knowledge of the alleged incident and never heard Ramirez speak of it, he told the New Yorker that he could not "imagine her making this up" and that Kavanaugh was "frequently, incoherently drunk" in college. Her allegation came a week after Dr. Christine Blasey Ford claimed that Kavanaugh pinned her down and covered her mouth to hide her screams as he grinded on her and attempted to remove her one-piece bathing suit.

The White House announced in the middle of the night on Thursday that it had sent the results of the FBI's supplemental background investigation of Kavanaugh to the Senate.

It appears he will not be given the opportunity, however.

The comments came days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation opened a Senate-requested probe into allegations by three women that a drunken Kavanaugh sexually abused them, or engaged in sexual misconduct, while they were students in the 1980s.

Either Judge Kavanaugh's inability to acknowledge the possibility of becoming unconscious at times during excessive drinking, or his refusal to accept that he may have been intoxicated while in the room with Dr. Ford, should disqualify him from a position on the Supreme Court.

"We each asserted that Brett lied to the Senate by stating, under oath, that he never drank to the point of forgetting what he was doing", Charles Ludington, Lynne Brookes and Elizabeth Swisher wrote in an editorial for the Washington Post. "It is inconceivable they could close a real investigation without re-interviewing Kavanaugh", says Susan Hennessey of the Brookings Institution. "And I believe Senator Durbin, with whom I just spoke, responded, 'that's not true.' We're now into something that is confidential, and this is a back-and-forth between the majority and minority about something both sides know was in the background investigation that doesn't clear the standard of 'not a whiff'". "I feel like I'm being silenced".

"I did not want to come forward", he wrote in the op-ed. My mother, who has since passed away, was a Republican state representative in CT. This is not about drinking too much or even encouraging others to drink. "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". "If the quarter landed in one of the glasses, the person at the table sitting nearest that glass had to drink the beer".

'There is no chance in the world that they're going to scare us out of doing our duty, ' he said.
