Yale classmate accuses Kavanaugh of ‘blatant mischaracterization’ of his drinking at college

Posted October 02, 2018

In response to a statement from Kavanaugh in which he insisted that he was focused on sports and academics in school and never drank to excess, Liz Swisher, another former classmate at Yale who now works as a doctor in Seattle, said that his statements were "not credible".

United States reports also say former classmates of the judge's who have stressed his heavy college drinking are not on the witness list. He described Kavanaugh as becoming "belligerent and aggressive" when he drank to excess. The Senate hearings became a national moment, especially for women and for victims of sexual assault, many of whom related personally to Ford's story and rallied behind her.

A lawyer for Mr Judge - a childhood friend of Mr Kavanaugh - said on Monday that his client's interview "has not been completed".

Mr Kavanaugh denies the allegations against him. "It has been from the beginning, and we're letting the Senate continue to dictate what the terms look like", Sanders said.

Trump is pushing back on reports that the White House has tried to limit the scope of the investigation, telling reporters at the White House Monday that "the FBI should do what they have to do to get to the answer" and "interview anybody that they want within reason".

In 1982, she angered the city's large gay community by vetoing a domestic partnership ordinance, calling it vague and unclear. Members of Ford's family, who have been silent so far, should be interviewed. "It is what is right and fair for Dr.

Ramirez 's attorney, John Clune, said Saturday that she has agreed to cooperate with the FBI investigation.

Despite this, NBC news quoted a White House official as saying restrictions remained in place, adding that as the FBI is carrying out a background - not a criminal - investigation, the White House decides the parameters of the probe. The FBI thus far apparently has failed to approach a third accuser, Julie Swetnick, whose allegations are the most extreme.

"Dr. Ford's account of the alleged assault has not been corroborated by anyone she identified as having attended-including her lifelong friend", Mitchell writes in the memo, concluding that "Dr. Ford has not offered a consistent account of the alleged assault".

Mr Trump said he wanted the FBI to conduct a comprehensive investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against his Supreme Court nominee, but said he did not want to see a "witch hunt".

In a separate report, NBC quoted a senior USA official and a second source as saying the limits imposed by the White House on the inquiry remained in place, despite Trump's tweet.

Bills' Twitter shows team traveling to Wisconsin for game vs. Vikings
Three plays later the defense did its part too, sacking Kirk Cousins - who had a frightful game on Sunday - and forcing a fumble. Bank Stadium, where the Vikings had won 10 of their last 11 games including the playoffs, began booing with increased intensity.

"Then I think we'll have evidence and information we can use", he said. Flake on Friday joined Democrats in calling for an FBI investigation, forcing a delay of the full Senate vote. Then, after powering the nomination through the panel on Friday, Republicans agreed to put off a floor vote while the FBI investigated. The committee has said the probe should be limited to "current credible allegations" against Kavanaugh and be finished by Friday. Judge has said he "categorically" denies the allegations.

Flake's comments come as the White House insisted it's not "micromanaging" the new one-week review of decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Independent voters, who supported Kavanaugh by 45 percent to 39 percent in the September 10 poll, now oppose his confirmation by 49 percent to 39 percent.

US President Donald Trump defended embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Monday, but said that the appeals court judge has had a "bit of difficulty" with alcohol. Agents also should talk to other participants in Mr. Kavanaugh's social circle in high school and college, starting with those who appear regularly in his calendars, to determine the truthfulness of his statements, under oath, to the Senate Judiciary Committee - about his drinking, for example.

The lawyer for Deborah Ramirez, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct when they were students at Yale, has agreed to cooperate with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
