"I don't drink", Trump told reporters jokingly, resulting in a burst of laughter from some reporters at a White House news conference.
"I've ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh's file. Whatever that means, according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that", he said. Trump did not elaborate.In a statement to media, Chad Ludington, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, said the judge was not truthful about his drinking during his Senate testimony last week and that at Yale, Kavanaugh was "a frequent drinker and a heavy drinker" who often got belligerent and aggressive when drunk. "If we took 10 years, they'd want more time", he groused.

If you think this is a search for the truth, you probably ought to put down the bong. "It's nearly became - I - I think for me it's, like, a part of my job description to handle this crap", Trump said.
"The White House should not be allowed to micromanage an FBI investigation", she said.
He also suggested that many people whom the agents seek out for interviews will be receptive.
The Times also reported Sunday that a Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh has accused him of a "blatant mischaracterization" of his drinking, which the judge downplayed in the Senate hearing.
Asked on Fox News Sunday whether the White House had given the Federal Bureau of Investigation a list of permitted witnesses, she replied, "Not that I'm aware of".
