Kavanaugh's college roommate: He was lying

In an op-ed for Slate, James Roche wrote that Kavanaugh drank boldly, without hesitation or reservation, reports CNN.

Dr Ford gave a moving testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee that she feared for her life when Kavanaugh drunkenly assaulted her at a high school party when she was 15. Kavanaugh strongly denies the allegation.

"We said, unequivocally, that each of us, on numerous occasions, had seen Brett stumbling drunk to the point that it would be impossible for him to state with any degree of certainty that he remembered everything that he did when drunk", they wrote. That it wasn't drunk to the point of having trouble getting up every month or two.

Roche also said he believes Deborah Ramirez, who has accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her at a party when they were students at Yale University.

Kavanaugh has denied Ramirez's allegation.

It appears he will not be given the opportunity, however.

Kavanaugh blasted the allegation and flatly disputed Roche's characterization in a phone interview with Senate investigators last week, speaking under penalty of perjury.

According to a Reuters report, days after being ordered to look into sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has talked with his high school friend Mark Judge, but the interview is incomplete, his attorney said on Monday.

Meanwhile, a one-time classmate of the Supreme Court nominee said Monday that Kavanaugh was a habitual heavy drinker-challenging the judge's Senate testimony.

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".

"As Brett's roommate, I'm in a singular position, at least of the people who are willing to talk, to say, 'Listen, I saw him do this stuff that he said under oath that he didn't do", Roche said.

One of the most important former classmates of Kavanaugh is Kenneth Appold who is now a professor at Princeton's Theological Seminary.

In the Slate op-ed, Roche notes he was raised in a Republican family - his mother was a Republican state representative in CT and "my father owns a MAGA hat". "I feel like I'm being silenced".

"As a general matter, if the FBI is conducting an investigation. they decide who they need to talk to", said Carrie Cordero, a former counsel to the USA assistant attorney general for national security. But I can say that he lied under oath.

Kavanaugh's comments about his drinking habits in high school and college have become a linchpin in the debate over his honesty. In his 12 years on the federal bench, Judge Kavanaugh has produced ample evidence of his judicial temperament. "I think that contributed to some of my feelings about the fact that these guys treated women in a way that I didn't like".
