Three Kavanaugh drinking buddies publish an op-ed saying he lied under oath, should not be confirmed
Charles Ludington, Lynne Brookes and Elizabeth Swisher, Kavanaugh’s classmates at Yale University, have taken the unusual step of publishing an op-ed in the Washington Post to urge the United States Senate to reject the Brett Kavanaugh nomination because he lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee under oath, on national television.
All three say they’ve faced frightening consequences for coming forward, one had his/her computer server hacked at work. All three have faced threats. Nevertheless, they feel compelled to come forward with the the truth because the integrity of the Supreme Court itself is at stake.
We were college classmates and drinking buddies with Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh. In the past week, all three of us decided separately to respond to questions from the media regarding Brett’s honesty, or lack thereof. In each of our cases, it was his public statements during a Fox News TV interview and his sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that prompted us to speak out.
We each asserted that Brett lied to the Senate by stating, under oath, that he never drank to the point of forgetting what he was doing. 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.
