Skip to comments.We were Brett Kavanaugh’s drinking buddies. We don’t think he should be confirmed.

Charles Ludington, Lynne Brookes and Elizabeth Swisher attended Yale University from 1983 to 1987 with Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh.
We were college classmates and drinking buddies with Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh. In the past week, all three of us decided separately to respond to questions from the media regarding Bretts honesty, or lack thereof. In each of our cases, it was his public statements during a Fox News TV interview and his sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that prompted us to speak out.
We each asserted that Brett lied to the Senate by stating, under oath, that he never drank to the point of forgetting what he was doing. We said, unequivocally, that each of us, on numerous occasions, had seen Brett stumbling drunk to the point that it would be impossible for him to state with any degree of certainty that he remembered everything that he did when drunk.
Since coming forward, we each have received numerous angry messages accusing us of attempting to ruin a mans life because of his drunken antics as a college student. In fact, none of us condemned Brett for his frequent drunkenness. We drank too much in college as well. It is true that Brett acknowledged he sometimes drank too many beers. But he also stated that he never drank to the point of blacking out.
All of us went to Yale, whose motto is Lux et Veritas (Light and Truth). Brett also belonged to a Yale senior secret society called Truth and Courage. We believe that Brett neither tells the former nor embodies the latter. For this reason, we believe that Brett Kavanaugh should not sit on the nations highest court.

But they never state they saw him blackout, or engage in sexual assault. They state they just think he would never remember it if he did it.
So, he is guilty by virtue of their presuming they know what he did when he was drunk.
I’ll bet Kavanaugh never passes out at a State of the Union speech
With friends like these, who needs enemies?
But keep it up, losers .. November's comin' :-))
Liberals too, without a doubt.
Nothing says you can’t be drunk and still remember what you did. Let them prove otherwise.
I just noticed the names on the article. these people were bitching that the FBI would not interview them they are friends of Rameiz.
Does it matter what they think?
So he was frequently drunk, stumbling around, yet finished FIRST in his class in High School...First in his class in College...First in his class in Law School...
I dont believe these were his drinking buddies. Probably never met. I wonder if they got paid for their story and Fienswine was expecting their story in the FBI report?
Now that the sexual assault charge fell through, the paid ones have started on the subject of drinking. Funny, I have worked with people for YEARS who cared nothing about drinking alcohol and whether or not it had harmful effects, drinking too much alcohol or not talking constantly about drinking alcohol. Suddenly, it matters? Really?
“Qualify” them by seeing to which political party they are registered!
Yet he graduated 1st in his class. While they had worse GPAs than D-Day....
I want to see their political registration(s) and donation activities before I will even consider what they have to say.
They have broadened the definition of blackout to mean you can’t remember every little detail when your were drunk vs. the actual definition which means you can’t remember anything at all about some significant stretch of time.
I presume this character flaw would undermine his academic performance? He performance in the Executive Branch? His 12 years as a judge? His competence as a father and a husband? The past 30 years of his life? No?
