Yale roommate: Kavanaugh lied under oath about drinking

  • James Roche Brett Kavanaugh's Yale freshman roommate talks to Anderson Cooper on 10/3

His admission would have also brought healing to our country even if he is not confirmed to the Supreme Court.

"As Brett's college freshman roommate, I would have expected to be interviewed if a background check was looking for evidence of poor college behaviour".

Later, it reported: "In addition to Kavanaugh, Ford and Swetnick, the list of people who have not been interviewed swells to dozens when counting the more than 20 names Ramirez gave and countless other Yale classmates who have reportedly taken it upon themselves to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation with their accounts on what Kavanaugh was like when they knew him".

"It was unpleasant to be around", Roche told ABC News.

"Brett's testimony about the meaning is entirely correct and consistent with my independent understanding", he wrote. "It wasn't drunk to the point of having trouble getting up every month or two, it was frequently".

James Roche speaks to ABC News, Oct. 4, 2018. The FBI has been conducting a supplemental background investigation into the nominee after Kavanaugh and Ford testified before the Judiciary Committee.

On Sept. 27, Kavanaugh testified to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, after California professor Christine Blasey Ford said that he sexually assaulted her at a party when they were teenagers in the early 1980s.

'He did, regularly, ' Roche wrote.

Kavanaugh would be "incoherent, stumbling" when he came back to their shared room, Roche said.

"I think the most important thing is when people say a thorough investigation was done, people need to know that is not the case", he says.

USA job growth slows but unemployment rate falls to 3.7%
The trade gap increased 6.4 per cent to a six-month high of $53.2 billion in August, the Commerce Department reported on Friday. The US unemployment rate fell to a 48-year low in September even after Hurricane Florence kept many Americans away from work.

"I am very alarmed, first, that I was denied an FBI investigation for five days, and then, when one was granted, that it was given on a short timeline and that the people who were key to corroborating my story have not been contacted", she said.

"Or who contacted us because they were alarmed that it seemed to them Judge Kavanaugh was being unjustly accused and they wanted an opportunity for these accusations to be further investigated and resolved or cleared", said Coons.

Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who pushed to delay the vote on Kavanaugh so the FBI could investigate, said the judge would not be confirmed if the probe revealed he had lied to senators. "We believe and stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, Julie Swetnick and Anita Hill".

But the individuals say investigators did not respond to their outreach - a silence that has prompted questions about just how "limited" in scope the inquiry really was.

Ramirez claims Kavanaugh put his penis in her face at a Yale party 35 years ago. "The White House quickly moved to limit the scope of the inquiry, excluding form the list of potential witnesses former classmates who could corroborate or debunk some of Kavanaugh's most obvious lies, especially those related to his drinking habits".

India is expected to receive the first S-400 regiment two years after the signing date of the contract. India reportedly plans to deploy the missiles to its borders with China and Pakistan.

In Roche's appearance on "Anderson Cooper 360", he said he was "shocked" when he heard Kavanaugh say "boofing" meant flatulence and "Devil's Triangle" was a drinking game, "because those words were commonly used and they were references to sexual activities".
