Kavanaugh wrongly claims he could drink legally in Md

Washington Post  YouTube

Kavanaugh's drinking has come under intense scrutiny after California professor Christine Blasey Ford alleged that a heavily intoxicated Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were both teenagers at a Maryland house party during the summer of 1982.

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh mentioned beer and enjoying beer nearly 30 times while denying drunkenly sexually assaulting Christine Blasey Ford.

During the hearing, Klobuchar had said she understands alcohol abuse, as her father is an alcoholic, and asked Kavanaugh if he'd ever blacked out while drinking.

"Yeah, and I'm curious if you have", Kavanaugh answered.

Lionel Messi appeared as a second-half substitute and struck the post as well as going close with a free-kick. It's the first time in two years Barcelona hasn't won in three consecutive league matches.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has readily acknowledged that he often drank beer during his prep school days and made a point in his congressional testimony that seniors could buy beer legally in Maryland at the age of 18. "If every American who drinks beer or every American who drank beer in high school is suddenly presumed guilty of sexual assault, will be an ugly, new place in this country", he continued, in what became seemingly a defense of beer drinking itself. Sometimes others did. I liked beer.

"Whatever else he was saying, there's no doubt that he was a heavy drinker and he told the exact opposite statement", Brown said "So his lies, I think, are relatively well-proved and I hope the Federal Bureau of Investigation can figure that out".

After a recess, Kavanaugh offered an apology for questioning Klobuchar's drinking habits in a heated exchange. Nearly everyone did. Sometimes I had too many beers. "We drank beer, I like beer". Kavanaugh conceded that most of his social functions in high school involved beer drinking that, despite his claims to the contrary, violated state law at the time.

Klobuchar said she does not know if Kavanaugh will be confirmed.

The author of 'Normal Girl, novelist Molly Jong-Fast tweeted, "Brett Kavanaugh will not apologize for loving beer and being an angry drunk". And the drinking age was 18. "I don't know", Kavanaugh said. A good rule of thumb might be that you've drunk too many beers if find yourself vomiting or waking up with a hangover.

Klobuchar: "So you're saying there's never been a case where you drank so much that you didn't remember what happened the night before, or part of what happened?"

Kavanaugh answered: "No. I remember what happened".

Klobuchar: So you're saying there's never been a chance where you drank so much that you didn't remember what happened the night before or part of what happened? In those respects he was not at all unusual compared to his peers, who officially were not allowed to drink, did it anyway, and sometimes "had too many beers". Yeah, we drank beer, and I said sometimes, sometimes probably had too many beers, and sometimes other people had too many beers.
