Kavanaugh Questioned After 1985 Bar Fight, No Charges Filed

Liz Swisher a former Yale classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh alleges he lied under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee

When questioned by police, Kavanaugh wouldn't say whether he had actually thrown the ice.

Charles Ludington said he was "deeply troubled" by Judge Kavanaugh's "blatant mischaracterisation". For his part, Kavanaugh never admitted to having a problem with his drinking. While the two men, he said, haven't stayed in close touch, he said he knew Kavanaugh well in college.

The episode occurred on a September evening in 1985 after Kavanaugh, Ludington and Dudley, attended the UB40 concert. He also said he never saw Kavanaugh black out.

"The guy swung at Brett", Mr. Ludington continued. The future Supreme Court nominee, who was later questioned about the alleged incident by police, was not arrested or charged in relation to the brief scuttle.

"It is truth that is at stake, and I believe that the ability to speak the truth, even when it does not reflect well upon oneself, is a paramount quality we seek in our nation's most powerful judges,"he said".

The professor plans to speak to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday, according to the New York Times.

Police questioned Kavanaugh and four other men, and Kavanaugh "did not want to say" whether he threw the beer.

Mr Judge's interview started but "has not been completed", his attorney said in a statement quoted by Fox News. "This is not a man who said that he was ideal with respect to alcohol".

"They've been trying to destroy him", Trump said.

"I've got boys. I've got girls", Mr Trump Jr told Daily Mail TV.

He added that sexual assault victims should feel "able to come out and be believed" with the caveat: "There has to be some credibility behind it".

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied all allegations against him.

In comments on Monday, the president did little to clear things up.

However, it doesn't prove anything at all, except that Kavanaugh might have contributed to a bar fight. Julie Swetnick wrote in a sworn declaration that Kavanaugh was present at high school parties where boys engaged in raping girls. He was a classmate of Brett Kavanaugh's at Yale University and said he often drank with him.

There is also an "O", indicating "other", next to Kavanaugh's name in the report.

What is the FBI investigating?

According to the police report, Kavanaugh was reluctant to say whether "he threw the ice or not".

The White House refused to comment on the new, shocking - horrifying - allegations.

A White House spokesman did not respond to emails about Ludington's account. The fate of Kavanaugh's nomination has meanwhile hung in the balance.

The FBI is investigating the allegations and will present its findings to the Senate by Friday. "Democrats desperately attack Judge Kavanaugh for throwing ice during college". Kavanaugh was never arrested. Ramirez said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her while drinking at a dorm party at Yale.
