Former classmate alleges Brett Kavanaugh downplayed his drinking in Thursday’s hearing

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

At Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to receive sworn testimony from both Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his first and primary accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, Senate Democrats focused in on Kavanaugh’s alleged heavy drinking in high school and college as being part and parcel with the allegations of sexual misconduct lodged against him.

Kavanaugh survived the contentious hearing and was passed out of committee on Friday on a party-line vote, with the caveat that a limited FBI investigation is opened, which raised the inevitable possibility that additional allegations of wrongdoing would be leveled against Kavanaugh during the week’s delay — and the liberal media didn’t disappoint.

As if on cue, it didn’t take long before the overtly liberal outlets of The New York Times and The Washington Post both published an account from a former classmate of Kavanaugh’s at Yale University who alleged that the nominee had lied to the committee about how extensive his drinking problem was in his younger age.

“Belligerent and aggressive” drunk

In the Times article, which focused on Democrats referring to the FBI investigation that they themselves had demanded as a “farce,” allegations were introduced by a former Yale classmate named Chad Ludington — now a professor in North Carolina — who asserted that Kavanaugh had delivered untruthful testimony by downplaying his alleged extensive consumption of alcohol during his high school and college years.

Ludington told the Times that he “frequently” saw Kavanaugh “staggering from alcohol consumption,” that the now-nominee often became “belligerent and aggressive” when he was drunk, and that he’d even thrown a beer in someone’s face once, which sparked “a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail.”

Though that sort of description runs counter to testimonials offered up by other friends and former classmates of Kavanaugh, who disputed that he frequently drank to such excesses, Ludington stated that he was prepared to speak with the FBI about his recollections of Kavanaugh’s drinking and belief that he lied about it to the committee.

Lied about his drinking to the committee

The report from the Post, which similarly focused on Democrat complaints about the limited FBI investigation — which again, they demanded — also included the allegation raised by Ludington.

Ludington, now an associate professor at North Carolina State University, again recounted that Kavanaugh was an angry drunk who got into fights and suggested that Kavanaugh had mischaracterized the extent of his drinking in testimony to the committee.

“I do not believe that the heavy drinking or even loutish behavior of an 18- or even 21-year-old should condemn a person for the rest of his life,” Ludington said.

He added: “However… 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.”

Kavanaugh has freely admitted on numerous occasions that he used to like, and still does like, to drink beer, and admitted that he sometimes drank a few more than he should, an activity that is not at all unheard of for high school and college students across the country and across generational lines.

This absurd laser-like focus by Democrats and the media on Kavanaugh’s alcohol consumption just confirms that all other avenues of attack against the nominee have failed miserably, leaving them with this rather ridiculous option of harassing a man over drinking beer at a time when most everyone else was drinking copious amounts of beer as well.
