Kavanaugh Apologizes To Klobuchar For Asking Her If She's Ever Blacked Out

In other words, it was illegal for Kavanaugh to drink as a freshman and the first semester or so of his sophomore year, a period when he, like most of his peers, nevertheless drank.

The exchange even seemed to rally hard-core Kavanaugh supporters to Klobuchar, like the blogger Erick Erickson, who has spent the last few weeks excoriating Democrats over their handling of the harassment allegations.

In a Fox News interview on Monday, Kavanaugh said, "Yes, there were parties".

Binge-drinking - which was at a 40-year high in the early 1980s - is fast becoming a central focus of the high-profile, he said/she said testimony of Kavanaugh and accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Klobuchar noted that Kavanaugh's college roommate James Roche claimed Kavanaugh became "belligerent" when he drank, but the Republicans who control the Senate Judiciary Committee haven't called on such witnesses to testify.

"Still, the problem for me is, he really didn't answer the question about if there have been incidences where he didn't partially remember what happened". In last year's Monitoring the Future Study, 56 percent of high school seniors reported drinking, down from 87 percent when Kavanaugh was in his last year at Georgetown Prep. In fact, he still likes beer.

"I liked beer. I still like beer".

"There is a bright line between drinking beer, which I gladly do, and which I fully embrace, and sexually assaulting someone, which is a violent crime". "And in my conversations with them, I believe them when they say they haven't decided. just because we're having a committee vote today, committees have advanced nominees to the floors who later get pulled back or investigations occur".

Shah insisted that Kavanaugh had said the legal drinking age was 18 because it "allowed friends to legally purchase beer, and for him to drink at high school parties", the AP reported.

"Nor do I", Kavanaugh concluded.

"Nor do I", Kavanaugh said. And the drinking age was 18.

Kavanaugh could legally drink in nearby Washington, D.C., for the final five months of high school. Kavanaugh forcefully denied the incident ever happened.

Whatever did or did not happen between Kavanaugh and Ford, this much we know: As a teenager and young man, Kavanaugh drank illegally, and sometimes he drank too much.

"Sometimes, probably had too many beers", Kavanaugh said.

"We drank beer and still do, so whatever", he said.
