Klobuchar: "I have no drinking problem, judge". The federal judge's drinking habits were under the microscope: Ford alleges Kavanaugh was visibly intoxicated during the assault, and a wealth of evidence indicates he traveled in hard-drinking social circles in high school and college.
There was a grandfather clause in the Maryland law, but only for those who were 18, 19 or 20 on the day the increase went into effect, thereby not including Kavanaugh. "We drink beer. We liked beer", he said. The drinking age, as I noted, was 18, so the seniors were legal, senior year in high school people were legal to drink.
"For me, it is not that people don't drink in high school, it's, is he telling the truth?" she said.
While he admitted in his congressional testimony that there were probably occasions during his time at Georgetown Prep that he had consumed "too many beers", a combative Kavanaugh denied he had ever gotten out of control or acted inappropriately toward women. "But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out, and I never sexually assaulted anyone". She says he assaulted her because that is what she remembers happening to her. "You talk about a nominee getting off the floor, when all we're asking for is one week for an investigation".
Kavanaugh: Yea and I'm curious if you have.
He also told Fox News in his interview Monday: "Yes, there were parties, and yes, the drinking age was 18".
"I was going to say, I started my last colloquy by saying to Senator Klobuchar how much I respect her and respected what she did at the last hearing, and she asked me a question at the end that I responded to by asking her a question". "I disagree with her politics, but if more Senators behaved like Amy Klobuchar behaved today, we'd have a far more dignified process and Senate", Erickson tweeted on Thursday night. "I don't know if you do. I'm sorry about that".
"She was willing to come forward, not to just a jury box of strangers...for the nation", said Klobuchar.
