Brett Kavanaugh's classmate Lynne Brookes says he lied

But his yearbook tells a different story.

Schroeder was one of 65 women who signed a letter sent to the Senate attesting to Kavanaugh's honorable treatment about women.

Additionally, she said she had no idea that Kavanaugh and his fellow classmates were making a reference to her until a few days ago.

Ms Gallagher told the Associated Press she did not intend to tell Mr Flake about her assault but she "saw him, and I got really angry". "I can't begin to comprehend what goes through the minds of 17-year-old boys who write such things, but the insinuation is awful, hurtful, and simply untrue", she tells the Times. 'I find it very hard to imagine that he never blacked out or had memory problems'.

Kavanaugh's lawyer claims the yearbook refers to one occasion when Kavanaugh kissed Ms. Dolphin. The paper zooms in on one potentially "hurtful" entry, which references a woman who has publicly vouched for Kavanaugh's character.

"You ever played quarters?" asked Kavanaugh.

When Kavanaugh was nominated to be a justice on the Supreme Court in July, the school immediately expressed its delight.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has questioned Kavanaugh and one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, and other potential witnesses have submitted sworn statements.

Then they heard a fiery, tearful and defensive rebuttal from Kavanaugh, who denied the allegations but pointedly refused to explain to Sen. She should be offended. "Don't look away from me", she said.

Why this matters: if it turns out that Kavanaugh is not telling the truth about comparatively little things, that could undercut the credibility of his denials about the bigger things. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) listens to testimony from Christine Blasey Ford in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, U.S., September 27, 2018.

After he took his stance, Republican leaders had little choice but to slow their rush to confirm Kavanaugh, whom they had hoped to have in place shortly after the new court term begins on Monday.

Kavanaugh's yearbook page includes the phrase, "Judge, have you boofed yet?"

Some students who declined to be quoted by name said there is support for Kavanaugh on campus and that others were rushing to judgment too quickly on the allegations against him.

"There's no problem with drinking beer in college". Instead, its investigators are expected to pursue the same kind of background inquiry they have conducted on Kavanaugh in the past, focused on the new allegations. "He was more interested in impressing the boys than he was in impressing the girls". "If you could breathe and walk at the same time, you could hook up with someone". The law changed to a minimum age of 21 before he even turned 18, so at no point in high school was drinking legal for Kavanaugh while he was in Maryland.

Kavanaugh and Ford are expected to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

During the appearance on Fox, host Martha MacCallum pressed Kavanaugh on his drinking.

Thursday, Kavanaugh again strongly denied all sexual assault allegations against him, saying he never attending the gathering Ford described. She said she hadn't told anyone before this past week. Chris Dudley was the one who went in, under the "egging on" of Brett Kavanaugh and they thought it was amusing.
