Klobuchar: Kavanaugh Would Have Thrown Me Out of His Courtroom

30 September, 2018, 21:43 | Author: Denise Dawson
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had a tense exchange about drinking during Thursday's hearing

Kavanaugh mentioned his appreciation for the yeasty beverage during his opening statement to the committee, almost an hour after Christine Blasey Ford finished telling the committee about the evening she says he attempted to rape her when they were in high school.

Earlier in the hearing, Kavanaugh said he enjoyed drinking - the legal drinking age at the time was 18-years-old - but claimed that he never went beyond social norms. Klobuchar asked. "That's not happened, is that your answer?"

Kavanaugh fired back, "Have you?" "I don't know if you do". When the hearing resumed, Kavanaugh apologized to Klobuchar for his response to her question.

Brett Kavanaugh emphatically and at times angrily defended his high school drinking before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday afternoon - referring to beer or his enjoyment of beer more than two dozen times in the first hours of his testimony. "I would like to add that when you have a parent that's alcoholic you're pretty careful about drinking". But in any event, we drank beer, and - and still do. He could have legally purchased and consumed alcohol in the capital - but only in the last four months of his senior year, after he turned 18.

"Drinking is one thing, but the concern is about truthfulness", Klobuchar said.

"Yes we drank beer, my friends and I, boys and girls. Was there ever a time when you drank so much that you couldn't remember what happened or part of what happened the night before?" Kavanaugh forcefully denied the incident ever happened.

A user wrote, "To sum up Kavanaugh today, he insinuated a female Senator was drunk, yelled at her, argued, yelled at and spoke over other female/male Senators, lied, yelled, HE LIKES BEER, cried over Calendars, blamed democrats, blamed the Clintons & was unhinged. End. So, that's not happened, is that your answer?"

"I believe that if they listen to this incredibly graceful, dignified woman yesterday, it's hard to not at least say open up the FBI investigation".

Klobuchar responded: "I appreciate that".

"I liked beer. Still like beer". The journalist Dan Rather tweeted "the Kavanaugh hearings further cemented my belief that Amy Klobuchar has a real chance at being the next president of the United States".

A New Yorker report published Sunday detailed an allegation that Kavanaugh exposed himself to Deborah Ramirez, a Yale student, at a dorm-room party as onlookers watched during the 1983-84 school year. "Have you?" Kavanaugh replied.

"What I think Sen".
