Inside the Booze-Soaked 1980s When Brett Kavanaugh Was in High School

Earlier this month, Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University in California, had alleged that Kavanaugh had assaulted her during a party in the 1980s when they were both in high school.

Key to Kavanaugh's defense was that he had never drank beer to the point of memory loss, but he strongly defended his beer drinking and the habit generally.

While he admitted in his congressional testimony that there were probably occasions during his time at Georgetown Prep that he had consumed "too many beers", a combative Kavanaugh denied he had ever gotten out of control or acted inappropriately toward women.

In the exchange, Klobuchar asked the Supreme Court nominee if he ever had so much to drink he blacked out.

"So drinking is one thing, but the concern is about truthfulness", Klobuchar said.

In his introductory remarks before the committee, Kavanaugh said that everything he said on the network could be entered as testimony.

Canada not making concessions needed for a NAFTA deal, says U.S.
Negotiations aimed at a new agreement have been underway for 13 months, but Canada and the US remain at loggerheads. MacNaughton says reaching a deal is very much a question of whether or not the USA wants to have a agreement.

That Medinah comeback featured five Americans that are on this 2018 team (Woods, Watson, Mickelson, Simpson, and Johnson). If not for Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas , the Americans might really be in trouble.

Jennifer Rubin, a conservative commentator for the Washington Post and a prominent critic of President Trump and the GOP, wrote a column later in the evening calling the exchange the "most telling moment" of a hearing in which a yelling, angry Kavanaugh appeared unable or unwilling to get out of attack mode.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has repeatedly said that he was legally allowed to consume beer as a prep school senior in Maryland. Sometimes others did. I like beer.

The Minnesota lawmaker went on to say, "I appreciate that he apologized, but at the same time, he didn't really answer the question".

"There is a bright line between drinking beer, which I gladly do, and which I fully embrace, and sexually assaulting someone, which is a violent crime".

"First of all, I'm not even thinking of that because I still believe that they haven't decided", she said.

Kavanaugh: You're asking about blackout. "But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out, and I never sexually assaulted anyone", Kavanaugh said. "But we have heard, not under oath, your college roommate say that you did drink frequently". "I don't know, have you?" "Klobuchar how much I respect her, and respected what she did the last hearing", Kavanaugh said. Do you like beer, senator, or not? Kavanaugh asked Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse after tacitly admitting to having vomited from too much beer drinking.
