Liz Swisher, the Yale roommate of Brett Kavanaugh accuser Debbie Ramirez, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that the Supreme Court nominee lied to the Senate about his college drinking.
“I’ve known Brett since the very beginning of freshman year,” Swisher said, “and he was always one of the beer-drinking boys.”
The Kavanaugh acquaintance went on to say that although she never saw the nominee be “sexually aggressive,” she recalls him being a “sloppy drunk.”
Later in the interview, Cuomo asked Swisher if she found it “disqualifying” that Kavanaugh appeared to be lying about his drinking habits.
“Absolutely,” she responded. “That’s perjury. He was under oath.”
It is notable that Swisher’s account goes hand in hand with the one provided by Kavanaugh’s college roommate.

Especially disgusting was the shared bathroom, which was always covered in vomit. Kavanaugh and his crowd, whom Winter characterizes as “loud, obnoxious frat boy-like drunks” were the hardest drinkers on campus even back then, when hard-drinking did not hold the stigma it does today. In a statement earlier this week, Roche recalled Kavanaugh “frequently drinking excessively and becoming incoherently drunk,” and Winter corroborates that recollection. “There was a lot of vomit in the bathroom. No one ever cleaned it up. It was disgusting. It wasn’t incidental. It wasn’t, ‘Oh, this weekend someone puked in the bathroom.’ People were constantly puking in the bathroom. Constantly.” Lori Adams, a retired psychiatrist in Underhill, Vermont, was a friend of Winter’s at Yale. “I remember,” she says, “that you couldn’t use the bathroom because his roommates vomited all over the floor and didn’t clean it up.”
Now it is important to keep in mind that none of these people are saying that they witnessed any of the alleged sexual misconduct, but they are saying that Kavanaugh perjured himself.
Which of course should be disqualifying.
Kavanaugh even, somewhat inexplicably lied about the drinking age in his hometown.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has readily acknowledged that he often drank beer during his prep school days and made a point in his congressional testimony that seniors could buy beer legally in Maryland at the age of 18.
But Kavanaugh was never a legal drinker in that state when he was a high schooler — he was still 17 when that state’s drinking age was increased to 21 on July 1, 1982. Anyone who turned 18 after that date, including Kavanaugh’s classmates, also would have been unable to drink legally in the state.
The law was different in the District of Columbia. There, until 1986, 18-year-olds could legally buy and consume beer. That means Kavanaugh was legal there for only the final four months of his senior year at Georgetown Prep, following his Feb. 12, 1983 birthday.
Keep in mind that this man is currently a federal judge, who is now trying to earn a spot on the Supreme Court.
If he cannot even answer a few questions about drinking during his years in high school and college without lying, why would we trust that he is telling the truth about sexual assault?
