One of Judge Kavanugh’s college friends has given a statement to the FBI. He confirmed that Brett was a heavy drinker in college and was a mean drunk. His friend said:
“On one of the last occasions I purposely socialized with Brett, I witnessed him respond to a semi-hostile remark, not by defusing the situation, but by throwing his beer in the man’s face and starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail,” the statement said. In conclusion, Kavanaugh’s college friend, now a college professor, reported that Kavanaugh was a “belligerent and aggressive” drunk.
During his Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Kavanaugh was repeatedly asked about his drinking habits in high school and college and denied having a problem.
In his statement, Kavanaugh’s college friend wrote that “if he lied about his past actions on national television, and more especially while speaking under oath in front of the United States Senate, I believe those lies should have consequences.”
Even though the college friend did not have personal knowledge of the conduct of Kavanaugh in High School, the college friend’s statement lends credibility to Dr. Ford’s account of Kavanaugh’s behavior while intoxicated when he sexually assaulted her.
