Klobuchar Grills Kavanaugh On Drinking At Nomination Hearing

Klobuchar Grills Kavanaugh On Drinking At Nomination Hearing

I liked beer. I still like beer... In fact, he still likes beer.

Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar asked Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during his Senate hearing if he had ever blacked out from too much alcohol.

"I have no drinking problem, judge", Klobuchar said.

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.

After tempers cooled, Kavanaugh came back and apologized.

"Yes we drank beer, my friends and I, boys and girls". I still like beer. The drinking age, as I noted, was 18, so the seniors were legal, senior year in high school people were legal to drink. "But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out, and I never sexually assaulted anyone", Kavanaugh said.

"I like beer", Kavanaugh said.




"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?" "If Judge Kavanaugh is so sure that he has this corroborating evidence, and what this calendar means, and what these things mean, then what is he afraid of if we just spend one week looking at the evidence?" She says he assaulted her because that is what she remembers happening to her.

"I was going to say, I started my last colloquy by saying to Senator Klobuchar how much I respect her and respected what she did at the last hearing, and she asked me a question at the end that I responded to by asking her a question".

A New Yorker report published Sunday detailed an allegation that Kavanaugh exposed himself to Deborah Ramirez, a Yale student, at a dorm-room party as onlookers watched during the 1983-84 school year.

He responded, "You're asking about blackout".

In his introductory remarks before the committee, Kavanaugh said that everything he said on the network could be entered as testimony. "And what I was trying to get at was that you have this incredibly convincing testimony in the morning from Dr. Ford".

"Sorry I did that, this is a tough process", he added. "I'm sorry about that".

"And I appreciated that he apologized, but at the same time, he didn't really answer the question".
