Yale roommate says Kavanaugh lied under oath about drinking and yearbook

Kavanaugh nomination FBI probe underway another Yale classmate speaks out

In denying the allegations, the 53-year-old has sought to play down stories of youthful drinking, but on Monday (1Oct18) The New York Times reported that Kavanaugh was questioned by police over a fight in a New Haven, Connecticut bar in 1985 with a patron he believed was Campbell.

Within moments, another Kavanaugh friend, Yale basketball star Chris Dudley, was involved, Ludington said.

Dudley denied the accusation to the police, and Kavanaugh did not want "to say if he threw the ice or not", the Times reports that the police report said.

The blowback to Trump's scoffing at Ford came as lawmakers awaited results of a revived Federal Bureau of Investigation background check, expected imminently, on accusations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh in high school and college.

Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in a tweet that people can "decide who to believe" but everyone should stop the "personal attacks" against Ford, Kavanaugh and their families.

And now it has emerged that Mr Kavanaugh and his staff were allegedly sending text messages to silence reports of indecent exposure - before the story had even broken.

Cozzolino has not yet commented on the situation.

CNN has reached out to the White House for reaction to Roche's comments. A police report documenting the incident was first reported Monday night by the New York Times. He was accused of throwing ice on another man, according to the testimony of a man on the scene. The incident reportedly occurred at a bar called Demery's. "'I don't remember, '" Trump said at the rally Tuesday in Southaven. Throwing ice 33 years ago, or her opinion of Judge Kavanaugh in July?

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 4, 2018 in Washington, DC.

The FBI reopened Kavanaugh's background check last week after California resident Christine Blasey Ford accused him of sexually assaulting her while he was, in her words, "stumbling drunk", when both were in high school in 1982.

There was some shouting, and then the police showed up, Ludington said. Dudley stressed that while he and Kavanaugh drank together in college, he never saw Kavanaugh black out.

Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, asked on Twitter. The future Supreme Court nominee, who was later questioned about the alleged incident by police, was not arrested or charged in relation to the brief scuttle.

Ludington said he felt it was his civic duty to tell of his experience drinking with Kavanaugh, and said in his statement he is going to take his information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"I was Brett Kavanaugh's roommate at Yale University in the Fall of 1983".

"I was with Brett frequently in college, whether it be in the gym, in class or socializing".
