Klobuchar Grills Kavanaugh On Drinking At Nomination Hearing

Kavanaugh Apologizes for Turning Sen. Klobuchar’s Question About His Drinking Back on Her

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.

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 one of the more tense exchanges, he asked Sen.

"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. I don't know, have you?"

He also told the committee, "If every American who drinks beer or every American who drank beer in high school is suddenly presumed guilty of sexual assault, it will be an ugly new place in this country". Klobuchar, nodding slightly, returned to the questioning: "You're saying there's never been a case when you drank so much that you didn't remember what happened the night before, or part of what happened?"

Klobuchar: "Could you answer the question, judge?".

Mr Park said tighter border controls between North Korea and China and higher rates charged by people smugglers were key factors. Sanctions were directly referenced by Ri as a barrier to bilateral progress and as an example of USA efforts to coerce the DPRK.

Klobuchar said she appreciates hearing that, adding again that people with parents who are alcoholics are careful about drinking. That, however, did not apply to Kavanaugh: He didn't turn 18 until the following February. "You talk about a nominee getting off the floor, when all we're asking for is one week for an investigation".

In his introductory remarks before the committee, Kavanaugh said that everything he said on the network could be entered as testimony.

"This is in the hands of really two of my colleagues, Senator Collins and Senator Murkowski", she said. In his apology, Kavanaugh said, "This has been a tough process". "I was truly just trying to get to the bottom of the facts and the evidence", Kavanaugh said. Klobuchar noted that Kavanaugh's college roommate James Roche claimed Kavanaugh became "belligerent" when he drank, but the Republicans who control the Senate Judiciary Committee haven't called on such witnesses to testify. "I drank beer with my friends".

The Senate Judiciary Committee is slated to vote on Kavanaugh at 9:30 a.m. Friday.
