White House slams 'ridiculous' NYT report on Kavanaugh's college ice-throwing incident

Brett Kavanaugh's classmate Lynne Brookes says he lied

Brett Kavanaugh's classmate Lynne Brookes says he lied

Trump said Monday that he called on the FBI to do a "comprehensive" investigation into sexual assault allegations invovling Kavanaugh.

According to a New York Times report, Brett Kavanaugh, coming from a UB40 concert, got into an altercation after mistaking a man for the lead singer of the band.

According to the police report, Chris Dudley, one of Kavanaugh's friends, threw a glass at a man, hitting him in the ear, which caused his right ear to bleed. The report says Dudley denied throwing a glass at Cozzolino, while Kavanaugh did not want to say whether or not he threw the ice. The White House noted that Kavanaugh wasn't arrested or charged and questioned the incident's relevance.

On Monday, the New York Times obtained the police report detailing the incident, which occurred in September 1985, when Kavanaugh was a junior at Yale. She has accused Kavanaugh of trying to rape her during a high school party. Parts of the incident are corroborated by a police report. Soon the man and Kavanaugh "were connected in some head lock or wrestling form", Ludington said.

Sanders tweeted that Democrats are desperate to attack Kavanaugh and used a July tweet from one of the article's co-authors in an apparent attempt to show biased reporting.

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was reportedly involved in a bar fight after a UB40 concert in 1985.

At the Masters in April, McIlroy partnered Patrick Reed and struggled to a another 74 as the American made his major breakthrough. Monday was as much a time to reflect on Woods as it was to rest up for a busy week at Le Golf National .

Ludington said in his statement he witnessed Kavanaugh throw a beer in a man's face once for making a semi-hostile remark, "starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail".

"As a @YaleLawSch grad & lecturer, I strongly disassociate myself from tonight's praise of Brett Kavanaugh", Emily Bazelon, a Times reporter, tweeted at the time. "It is from this experience that I concluded that although Brett was normally reserved, he was a notably heavy drinker, even by the standards of the time, and that he became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk", Roche said in a statement.

Mr Trump said he wanted the FBI to conduct a comprehensive investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against his Supreme Court nominee, but said he did not want to see a "witch hunt".

While a student at Yale, Kavanaugh got into a bar fight with a patron he mistakenly believed to be UB40 singer Ali Campbell. The man then swung at Kavanaugh and Dudley struck him with a bottle, Ludington said.

A number of Kavanaugh's former classmates have said Kavanaugh's testimony before the Senate was misleading and omitted the true nature of his drinking habits.

The president's son, Donald Trump Jr, has said the #MeToo movement makes him more anxious about his sons' future than his daughters'. Swetnick claims she saw Kavanaugh drink excessively at these parties, "press girls against him without their consent" and attempt to remove or shift their clothing.
