Kavanaugh accused of throwing ice at man in 1985

Kavanaugh accused of throwing ice at man in 1985

Ludington said Kavanaugh cursed at the man, and that Kavanaugh's friend, basketball player Chris Dudley, threw a glass in the face of the guy they thought was Campbell.

It's unclear if anyone was arrested, and in the report obtained by the Times, Kavanaugh refused to confirm or deny whether he threw the ice that started the "assault". Kavanaugh was cited in the police report as having been supposedly involved in the altercation, along with three other friends during his undergraduate years at Yale.

According to former Yale student and alleged Kavanaugh drinking buddy Chad Ludington, he and Kavanaugh were among a group of people who attended a concert by reggae band UB40 in 1985, and headed to a local tavern after the concert. "The problem is lying about it", Liz Swisher, a former classmate of Kavanaugh's, said on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" last week.

With the Federal Bureau of Investigation delving into Judge Kavanaugh's background - including receiving a statement from a Yale classmate who says he misrepresented the extent of his alcohol use - there's the chance more details will emerge about Judge Kavanaugh's past actions.

Even President Donald Trump, who nominated Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and who is desperate to see him confirmed, appeared to contradict Kavanaugh's drinking denials in a speech on Monday, characterizing him as "a man saying that he did have difficulty as a young man with drink".

The report is the latest indication that Kavanaugh drank to excess in his youth and, apparently, became belligerent.

A spokesperson for The Times said in a statement Tuesday afternoon that the story Bazelon contributed to was "straightforward, fact-based and we fully stand behind it".

"Brett and I did not socialize beyond the first few days of freshman year".

Democrats fume that the White House is interfering in the FBI probe, limiting its scope and refusing to allow the bureau to take testimony from Kavanaugh and other crucial witnesses. "She is not a newsroom reporter", the spokesperson for The Times said. I never ever saw Brett blackout. Amy Klobuchar asked Kavanaugh if he had ever woken up and not been able to remember what happened - or part of what happened - the night before after drinking too much. She has spoken to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but Ford had reportedly not been contacted by the agency as of Monday.

Rachel Mitchell, the Arizona prosecutor hired by Republicans to question one of the judge's accusers, Prof Christine Blasey Ford, during hearings last week, gave her memo to senators on Sunday.
