  • New questions emerge over FBI investigation of Kavanaugh

A classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has accused him of lying under oath about his "heavy" drinking.

Kavanaugh testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he has never been blackout drunk.

"The guy swung at Brett", Ludington said.

Kavanaugh's drinking habits figure prominently in the sexual-assault allegations levied against him by Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez. It's not known whether Dudley was ever charged with a crime.

Noah recounted how, according to the Times, "Donald Trump - the president, by the way, remember? - stole half a billion dollars from the American government" through tax dodges, "needed his father to repeatedly bail out his failing businesses", and "will definitely not go to prison" thanks to the statutes of limitations.

The new inquiry has delayed a final vote on Judge Kavanaugh, who if confirmed is likely to tip America's highest court in favour of conservatives.

While Bazelon and Ben Protess wrote Kavanaugh was "not arrested", she speculated on Twitter Monday night that there was "no report of an arrest" and it "could have been expunged".

Ludington says that a brawl then broke out, with Kavanaugh later questioned by police about his involvement (he was neither arrested nor charged). Ludington said he believed Kavanaugh "mischaracterized the extent" of his drinking during the hearing.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) slammed the New York Times in a tweet, saying it wasn't even "trying to hide anymore its membership in media wing of Democratic Party".

Police reportedly questioned Kavanaugh after bar fight in 1985
When the man told the group to leave him alone, Kavanaugh allegedly cursed and "threw his beer at the guy, " which led to a fight. If his Supreme Court nomination fight is like a barroom brawl, then Brett Kavanaugh is well-prepared.

One such person, according to a report in the Washington Post, is Chris Ludington, a former varsity basketball player and University of North Carolina associate professor who knew Kavanaugh at Yale. Kavanaugh, police wrote, was unwilling "to say if he threw the ice or not". "That's pretty much where we are and I don't see this going any further with the New Haven Police Department".

However, it doesn't prove anything at all, except that Kavanaugh might have contributed to a bar fight.

Activists hold signs at a rally calling on Sen. Then, on Sunday, media were alerted to an altercation at a CT bar involving Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

What is the FBI investigating?

In Roche's appearance on "Anderson Cooper 360", he said he was "shocked" when he heard Kavanaugh say "boofing" meant flatulence and "Devil's Triangle" was a drinking game, "because those words were commonly used and they were references to sexual activities". He was accused of throwing ice on another man, according to the testimony of a man on the scene.

After Democrats claimed the FBI's probe would be limited on time and in scope, Trump said he actually wants the Federal Bureau of Investigation "to interview whoever [sic] they deem appropriate, at their discretion".

Following the release of the Times report, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called the story "ridiculous". "But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out", he said. He has denied both accusations.

With the Federal Bureau of Investigation delving into Judge Kavanaugh's background - including receiving a statement from a Yale classmate who says he misrepresented the extent of his alcohol use - there's the chance more details will emerge about Judge Kavanaugh's past actions. I never ever saw Brett black out. We shared a two-bedroom unit in the basement of Lawrence Hall on the Old Campus.
