Klobuchar Grills Kavanaugh On Drinking At Nomination Hearing

Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Thursday appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee featured a display of emotions, with the judge alternating between crying and shouting.

According to Paul Schiff Berman, a professor at George Washington University Law School who teaches civil procedure, the most important question in the Kavanaugh fight has become the degree to which he is "outright lying" about his past, including how much he drank in high school and college. Yes, we drank beer. There, until 1986, 18-year-olds could legally buy and consume beer. "I liked beer. I still like beer", he said.

- In an emotional day of testimony, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford described the alleged sexual assault involving Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying she was "100 percent certain" he assaulted her. Kavanaugh in his testimony later in the day said he was "100 percent certain" the assault never happened. "It's a tough process, I am sorry about that", Kavanaugh said. And the drinking age was 18. The drinking age as I noted, was 18, so the seniors were legal. He said Kavanaugh's testimony about drinking and the drinking age was "for context" of how Maryland high schoolers obtained beer. "And yes, the seniors were legal".

"Nor do I", Kavanaugh said.

He also told Fox News in his interview Monday: "Yes, there were parties, and yes, the drinking age was 18. And yes, the seniors were legal".

In his testimony, Kavanaugh, who has denied all of Ford's accusations, stated correctly that the drinking age had been 18 in Maryland for "most" of his time in high school. In one of the more tense exchanges, he asked Sen. In fact, he still likes beer.

After tempers cooled, Kavanaugh came back and apologized. "If Judge Kavanaugh is so sure that he has this corroborating evidence, and what this calendar means, and what these things mean, then what is he afraid of if we just spend one week looking at the evidence?"
