Former Yale classmate of Brett Kavanaugh says that he was “a sloppy drunk” and that he “lied under oath.”

Courtesy of Raw Story:

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.

Courtesy of The Cut:

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.

Courtesy of the AP:

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?

    Kavanaugh said FFFF referred to a whistling sound his friend made.
    Kavanaugh said Devil’s Triangle referred to a drinking game.
    Kavanaugh said boofing referred to flatulence.
    Kavanaugh said Renate Alumnius referred to being a great friend.

    FFFF is slang for Find ’em, Feel ’em, Fuck ’em and Forget ’em.
    The Devil’s Triangle is slang for a threesome with a woman and two men.
    Boofing is slang for inserting drugs through anus.
    Alumnius is innuendo implying you are in a group that all had sex with the same girl.

    Kavanaugh said he partied on weekends, then acknowledged he had been drinking on July 1st, 1982. That was a Thursday.

    Kavanaugh said he was over the legal drinking age. It was 18 in Maryland, but on the 1st of July 1982 it was increased to 21. Kavanaugh was 17 years old.

      I have not looked up those terms yet. Thanks for enlightening us. Kavanaugh believed he could lie his way out of this. I wonder how many tips or brainstorming went on in the White House to spin so much with Kavanaugh willing to lie? He was not the pure alter boy he sought to portray. He made a choice to lie his way into the Supreme Court which demonstrated he is not fit to be there. I sensed Kavanaugh made a choice to not demand a FBI investigation to clear his name giving me the impression he sold his soul to the devil, Trump, to do his bidding. Kavanaugh looked like he was in agony and panic when confronted with reason by Dick Durbin.

      Kavanaugh’s line that this was revenge for Hillary Clinton sounded like Trump. I wanted to slap Kavanaugh when he asked Senators about their drinking sounding like an obnoxious teenager.

    Brett has a problem with his temper, his drinking, the truth and with women, not doormat republican women, but strong women !!!

    All women are going to be in big trouble if this creep gets on the court because he is going to take his anger out on all of us.

    His problems become more evident as clips are show and his anger towards women was evident even in the first hearing.

    ==================
    Is this the account of the roommate that brett said in the “redacted part of his statement” the guy is lying because they didn’t get along, how convenient 🙂

    I hope the FBI interviews Liz Swisher !!!!!

    OMG, no wonder trump loves brett, they both lie, they both hate women and they both have assaulted women, so much in common !!!! Why isn’t little donnie disturbed by brett’s drinking problem?

    Also the ACLU came out, which they never do, and said his should not be confirmed.

    And have the ABA, the Catholic group, Yale law school, a bunch of women who signed a letter, all that previously supported him and NOW don’t .

      Path’etic – You’re absolutely right!

      Almost all of the Ivy League schools ask applicants if any member of their family received a degree from their institution along with the relative’s name(s) and year(s) of graduation. You can bet Kavanaugh would have added his grandfather’s name to his application. Check out any Ivy League school website and search “Legacy” because legacy is always a published statistic.

    Here we go..more obstruction of justice, I thought trump couldn’t tell the FBI what they could investigate.
    ==============

    Trump told FBI it can’t seek records of when Mark Judge worked at grocery store that would confirm Blasey Ford account: report

    President Donald Trump appears to have severely restricted the FBI investigation into Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s account of a violent sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, NBC News reports.

    According to NBC’s reporting, sourced to a White House official, Trump has banned the FBI from investigating the gang rape allegations brought forward by Julie Swetnick.

    Investigators will meet with Mark Judge, the accused accomplice of Kavanaugh. The recovering alcoholic has written extensively about his prep school exploits.

    “But as of now, the FBI cannot ask the supermarket that employed Judge for records verifying when he was employed there,” a source said.

    This is a big deal because while Blasey Ford cannot recall the exact date of the attack, she did testify that she remembers seeing Judge afterwards at the Potomac Village Safeway, where he worked.

    In Judge’s memoir, he wrote about a short stint working as “a bag boy.”

    The details could help fill-in missing information Blasey Ford’s testimony and show whether the assault happened in July 1, 1982, a night Kavanaugh documented attending a get-together than matches Blasey Ford’s description on his calendar.

    “Instead of investigating Swetnick’s claims, the White House counsel’s office has given the FBI a list of witnesses they are permitted to interview, according to several people who discussed the parameters on the condition of anonymity.” “Like the committee process, this investigation is shaping up to be a sham” “The White House and its Republican allies in Congress never wanted this investigation to begin with. They didn’t want the truth to come out. Now that it’s been thrust upon them, they are doing everything in their power to make it as ineffective as possible.”

    Breaking: White House To Limit Scope of FBI Investigation

    WASHINGTON — The White House is limiting the scope of the FBI’s investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, multiple people briefed on the matter told NBC News.

    While the FBI will examine the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, the bureau has not been permitted to investigate the claims of Julie Swetnick, who has accused Kavanaugh of engaging in sexual misconduct at parties while he was a student at Georgetown Preparatory School in the 1980s, those people familiar with the investigation told NBC News. A White House official confirmed that Swetnick’s claims will not be pursued as part of the reopened background investigation into Kavanaugh.

    Instead of investigating Swetnick’s claims, the White House counsel’s office has given the FBI a list of witnesses they are permitted to interview, according to several people who discussed the parameters on the condition of anonymity. They characterized the White House instructions as a significant constraint on the FBI investigation and caution that such a limited scope, while not unusual in normal circumstances, may make it difficult to pursue additional leads in a case in which a Supreme Court nominee has been accused of sexual assault.

    White House counsel Don McGahn, who has shepherded Kavanaugh’s nomination since president Trump chose him for the high court on July 9, is taking the lead for the White House in dealing with the FBI on the investigation, those involved in the process told NBC News.

    But as of now, the FBI cannot ask the supermarket that employed Judge for records verifying when he was employed there, one of the sources was told.

    Two sources familiar with the investigation said the FBI will also not be able to examine why Kavanaugh’s account of his drinking at Yale University differs from those of some former classmates, who have said he was known as a heavy drinker.

      I am so angry, I would write my senators and tell them what a farce this investigation and the republicans are, but they are both democrats and already wrote me they are voting against this sleaze bag.

      They only way I can see to save the democracy is to VOTE the republicans out !!!

    Pelosi said Kavanaugh is unfit to be on the Supreme Court.

    “I couldn’t help but think that if a woman had ever performed that way, they would say ‘hysterical,’”

    “The judge called the allegations a “gross character assassination” conceived by Democratic lawmakers and fueled by “revenge on behalf of” Bill and Hillary Clinton.

    “I think that he disqualifies himself with those statements and the manner in which he went after the Clintons and the Democrats,” Pelosi told interviewer Alex Wagner. She added that “if he is not telling the truth to Congress or to the FBI, then he’s not fit not only to be on the Supreme Court, but to be on the court he’s on right now.” “

    Ex-sex crimes prosecutor reveals the one belligerent Kavanaugh testimony response she would use to convict him

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh showed he is “disproportionately predisposed” to impose himself on women, a former sex crimes prosecutor explained on MSNBC.

    Anchor Alex Witt played the instantly-infamous clip of Judge Kavanaugh avoiding a question by Sen. Amy Klobucher (D-MN) and instead trying to interrogate her.

    “I gotta say, I was cringing at that one,” Witt noted. “Why was I cringing? Why was this such a significant part of the hearing for you?”

    “Yeah, I mean, it took me a long time to recover from this,” noted Wendy Murphy, a professor at New England Law School. “It was extraordinary, it was rude, it was sexist, it was disrespectful, it was — the list goes on.”

    “The reason, in my opinion, this was corroborative of Dr. Ford, is simply because that level of arrogance and entitlement — the idea that he was in a position to ask questions of the Senate Judiciary Committee — that level of entitlement is correlated with high incidence rates of sexual assault,” she explained.

    “In other words, what the research tells us, is men who view themselves and act in these ways that are arrogant and entitled are the men disproportionately predisposed to impose themselves on women,” Murphy continued. “To me it was like, as behavioral evidence goes, that’s Exhibit A.”

    “This is the type of man who could sexually assault multiple women,” she concluded. “That’s the kind of guy he is. It was ringing so true for me.”

    She said Judge Kavanaugh’s entitlement would have resulted in a guilty verdict in a jury trial.

    “It wasn’t just his manner and tone and demeanor — which, I prosecuted a lot of sex crimes cases — this would be a guilty verdict based solely on his disrespect for the forum. But then he lied repeatedly about those signals,” she noted. “In those two facts alone, I would find him guilty in a criminal court beyond a reasonable doubt.”

    “I don’t think there’s a chance he makes it past this FBI investigation, not a chance,” she predicted.

    She also noted the growing number of women coming forward with allegations against the conservative jurist.

    “Look, all I want to say is, a single sexual assault against one woman should be enough. We have three here, this is not a ‘he said, she said,’ it’s a ‘he said, three said,’” she noted, holding up three fingers.

    “We have to remember this is about violence against women, because a single sexual assault against one woman is an assault against every woman in this country,” she concluded. “That’s what’s at stake here, that is the issue.”

    “I gotta say, I was cringing at that one,” Witt noted. “Why was I cringing? Why was this such a significant part of the hearing for you?”

    “Yeah, I mean, it took me a long time to recover from this,” noted Wendy Murphy, a professor at New England Law School. “It was extraordinary, it was rude, it was sexist, it was disrespectful, it was — the list goes on.”

    LIAR in chief, lying about the FBI investigation, exactly how stupid to they think we are?
    ============================================

    Watch: Trump says the FBI is ‘doing a really great job’ doing ‘whatever it is they do’ on Brett Kavanaugh

    …………..Trump praised the FBI, an agency he has sparred with on numerous occasions.

    “The FBI, I believe, is doing a really great job,” he said. “They have been all over already. They have free reign. Whatever it is they do, they will be doing things we haven’t even thought of.”

    Trump said he thought the investigation will clear Kavanaugh, who has been under fire by friends who say he was lying about his youthful binge drinking during testimony.

    “Actually I think this could be a blessing in disguise,” Trump said. “Having them do a thorough investigation, I think, will be a blessing in disguise. This is a good thing.”……..

    Trump won’t allow the FBI to investigate any of this. He has tightly restricted the scope of the investigation. In other words, OBSTRUCTION!

    If I was the FBI, I’d spend 24/7 double quick with every agent I could investigating everything I possibly could. I wouldn’t let any whanker that claimed he was going to clean the stench from the FBI OBSTRUCT me from doing my job properly.

    It doesn’t make any sense to ok an investigation, and then tell the FBI they can’t investigate the only thing (as I remember) the accuser said would help to answer some of the questions/lost memory of the event. Plus how can the president tell the FBI what they can/cannot investigate. I can see limiting it to current cases, but not the limits on those.
