Brett Kavanaugh 'involved in bar brawl after UB40 gig'

NY Times Uses Opinion Writer Who Blasted Kavanaugh For Hit Piece on Him Police Questioned Brett Kavanaugh About Bar Fight While At Yale In 1985

Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at someone in the bar, but was not charged with an offense or arrested, police spokesman David Hartman said. However, what is also alleged is that someone else threw a glass at that same person, and that glass hit that victim in the ear and that person was taken to the hospital.

New York Times writer Emily Bazelon helped write a blockbuster story this week that revealed Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, once threw ice at another guy in a bar 30 odd years ago.

This, despite heavy evidence to the contrary, as the Times dug up the presumably drunken altercation that occurred on September 25, 1985, outside of a club called Demery's. Liberals have backed charges from women who have disparaged Kavanaugh as a privileged, preppy, binge-drinking, belligerent who assaulted women and men in his school and college years and is therefore temperamentally unfit for the Supreme Court.

"If he lied about his past actions on national television, and more especially while speaking under oath in front of the United States Senate, I believe those lies should have consequences", Prof Ludington said.

Although the inquiry will focus on Ford's allegation against Kavanaugh, investigators are also examining claims made by another accuser, Deborah Ramirez, that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a dormitory party while the two attended Yale in the 1980s.

Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied drinking to excess, in part because a history of alcohol consumption that would severely impair his judgment or lead to memory loss is central to the allegations of Dr.

Kavanaugh has categorically denied any and all accusations, saying last week this was a targeted attack against him motivated Democrats' resentments. Back in college, Trump's nom went to a UB40 show, then tried to pick a fight with someone he thought was the lead singer.

According to a 1985 police report obtained by the Times, Mr Kavanaugh was involved in an altercation at a bar when he was an undergraduate student at Yale University.

Chad Ludington told NBC News that he was going to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday to give them information about Kavanaugh's drunken behavior when they were classmates at Yale University.

The White House did not immediately respond to requests from the Times for comment on Monday.

"I was Brett Kavanaugh's roommate at Yale University in the Fall of 1983. But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out", he said during his testimony. Despite our living conditions, Brett and I did not socialize beyond the first few days of freshman year.

And speaking at an event hosted by The Atlantic magazine, Trump ally Senator Lindsey Graham of SC said he "didn't particularly like" the president's remarks, adding, "I would tell him, knock it off". "I mean, he talked about things that happened when he drank".
