Everyone's making UB40 jokes thanks to a story about Brett Kavanaugh

Kavanaugh: Yale Classmate Says Supreme Court Nominee Has ‘Not Told the Truth’ About His Drinking

Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

The father-son attack on women who come forward with charges of sexual misconduct despite the trauma and the public opprobrium it involves enraged liberals who say the remarks showed just exactly why women are reluctant to come forward - rampant mansplaining and misogyny amid misrepresentation of facts.

Kavanaugh escalated the situation, Ludington said, replying with an expletive or something similar "and then threw his drink in the guy's face". It's not known whether Dudley was ever charged with a crime.

President Trump on Tuesday cranked up the volume on his white male base's primal scream to ear-shattering decibels.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump said the White House would not restrict the new Federal Bureau of Investigation probe requested by senators before they take a final vote on Mr Kavanaugh. But there are no indications agents have questioned Julie Swetnick, who has alleged she was victimized at a party attended by Kavanaugh and his friends.

The professor also said Judge Kavanaugh "was often belligerent and aggressive" when drunk.

"I can unequivocally say that in denying the possibility that he ever blacked out from drinking, and in downplaying the degree and frequency of his drinking, Brett has not told the truth", Chad Ludington said in a statement to CNN. And that led to a biting question about the judge's intelligence. Ludington claims to be offended that Kavanaugh has "mischaracterized the extent of his drinking at Yale", as the New York Times puts it.

New York Times writer Emily Bazelon helped write a blockbuster story this week that revealed Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, once threw ice at another guy in a bar 30 odd years ago. "That's pretty much where we are and I don't see this going any further with the New Haven Police Department".

Le'Veon Bell To Report To Steelers Week 7
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that the Steelers are now actively shopping Bell , though a deal would be tricky. While running back James Conner has been solid in relief of Bell , Conner isn't the second coming of Bell .

In one message, Ms Yarasavage said Mr Kavanaugh asked her to go on the record to defend him.

Mr Dudley, a Republican nominee for governor of OR in 2010, has spoken out in defence of Mr Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination.

Swalwell said Kavanaugh lying about this could disqualify him from serving on the Supreme Court because "he has painted himself as a choir boy who never engaged in any of this behavior, and all of the evidence seems to go the other way". He was accused of throwing ice on another individual in a tussle at a bar, along with his friend Chris Dudley (above right), who later became a player for the National Basketball Association. She has accused Kavanaugh of trying to rape her during a high school party.

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".

Sanders told reporters Wednesday at a rare White House briefing that "the president was stating the facts" at a MS rally Tuesday night. The fate of Kavanaugh's nomination has meanwhile hung in the balance.

First it was three allegations of sexual assault. "But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out", he said.

He returned to the theme during a campaign rally in Tennessee, where he accused opposition Democrats of being motivated by politics.
