NYT's Latest Hit Piece: Kavanaugh Allegedly Threw Ice on Someone in College

Friday, 05 Oct, 2018

According to the Times pieces, Kavanaugh tossed ice at a man during an altercation at a New Haven, Connecticut bar after a UB40 concert in 1985.

Police questioned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after he got into a bar fight in 1985, during his time at Yale.

A classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has accused the judge of lying under oath about "heavy" alcoholic drinking.

Mr Ludington, who teaches at North Carolina State University, said in a statement: "On many occasions I heard Brett slur his words and saw him staggering from alcohol consumption, not all of which was beer". Mayorga reported the incident in 2009, but Las Vegas officials said they had no suspect in the case.

Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at someone in the bar, but was not charged with an offense or arrested, police spokesman David Hartman said.

"The argument between the two started when Mr. Cozzolino stated that Brett Kavanaugh threw ice at him for some unknown reason and he then got hit in the ear with a glass", the report says.

Bazelon is an instructor at the Yale Law School and a writer for the Times' magazine.

The FBI is spending a week looking into allegations of sexual misconduct against Mr Kavanaugh after President Trump ordered an investigation. Sams said he and other friends helped Dudley out of the bar.

Ludington is not the first of Kavanaugh's former classmates to come forward and tell the story of a young man who drank to excess in college.

"However, I am in receipt of text messages from a mutual friend of both Debbie and mine that raise questions related to the allegations", Berchem said.

"He claimed that he occasionally drank too much but never enough to forget details of the night before, never enough to 'black out, '" Roche wrote in an essay published by Slate, referring to Kavanaugh's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. But when it comes to the frequency and severity of his drinking there, some former classmates are raising questions about how truthful Kavanaugh was in his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee and offering to tell FBI investigators what they know. But Kavanaugh's willingness to lie under oath "should have outcome", he said. "I never saw him be sexually aggressive but he definitely was sloppy drunk", Swisher added.

The matter forms part of an Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry into the judge, as do allegations of sexual assault, which he also denies.

Walsh has said his client doesn't know Kavanaugh and has no recollection of ever being at a party with him.

In response to her testimony, Judge Kavanaugh said he had never assaulted her or anyone else.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that senators will begin voting on Kavanaugh's nomination this week, and criticized what he called "endless delay and obstruction".
