Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was questioned by police when he was a student at Yale over an off-campus bar fight in 1985.
She said she and her other Yale classmates were messaging back and forth during Mr Kavanaugh's testimony and were "extremely disappointed" that he "evaded" questions about his excessive drinking. Kavanaugh, a junior at Yale at the time, was not arrested but police noted in their report that he had been accused of throwing ice at another patron for "some unknown reason". Ludington said Kavanaugh cursed at the man, and that Kavanaugh's friend, basketball player Chris Dudley, threw a glass in the face of the guy they thought was Campbell. "She is not a news reporter", the Times' statement reads.
It's important to remember Kavanaugh wasn't arrested, and Dudley denies the accusation. They spotted someone who they believed resembled Ali Campbell, then the band's lead singer. However, I have direct and repeated knowledge about his drinking and his disposition while drunk.
"I was surprised at how vocal he was about the fact that he likes beer and he's had a little bit of difficulty, I mean, he talked about things that happened when he drank", Trump during a Rose Garden press conference Monday.

Over the weekend, Chad Ludington, a college professor, said that he would deliver a statement to the Federal Bureau of Investigation field office in Raleigh, North Carolina, claiming that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh lied when he testified before Congress that he was not a heavy drinker.
James Roche, Kavanaugh's freshman year roommate at Yale, also spoke out.
Alcohol became the focus of the hearing on Thursday after Christine Blasey Ford gave wrenching testimony Thursday about allegedly being attacked by Kavanaugh when they were both teenagers. Agents soon contacted him, he said Monday night. Sams said he and other friends helped Dudley out of the bar.
"I then tried to pull Chris back, and a bunch of other guys tried to pull the other guy back", he continued.
One would presume that police would have detained Kavanaugh had that been the case, at least until he sobered up enough to be able to responsibly take care of himself.
