Ludington claims to be offended that Kavanaugh has "mischaracterized the extent of his drinking at Yale", as the New York Times puts it.

"At some point we looked over at this fellow who looked very similar to the lead singer of UB40, a guy named Ali Campbell, and we kind of give him the eye, looking at this guy", said Ludington. Ludington played basketball at Yale (and later, professionally in Europe) and said that athletes comprised much of Kavanaugh's social circle.

Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied drinking to excess, in part because a history of alcohol consumption that would severely impair his judgment or lead to memory loss is central to the allegations of Dr.

Charles Ludington said that he was "deeply troubled" by the judge's "blatant mischaracterisation".

Ludington is a professor at North Carolina State University, The New York Times reports, and he has appeared to have made small political contributions to Democratic candidates.


"If he lied about his past actions on national television, and more especially while speaking under oath in front of the United States Senate, I believe those lies should have consequences", Prof Ludington said. He told the Times he would go to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC. Sams said he and other friends helped Dudley out of the bar. "But I guess I'll have to let others decide that". "He was sloppy drunk". He was more interested in impressing the boys than he was in impressing the girls.

"But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out and I never sexually assaulted anyone".

Brookes, who also attended Yale, told CNN Thursday that Kavanaugh was "lying" to the Senate Judiciary Committee about his drinking. I was with Brett frequently in college, whether it be in the gym, in class or socializing.

In a follow-up tweet, the Yale Law Schooler lecturer wrote: "Those are fundamental values we try to instill in our students". The White House had no immediate comment when asked about Ludington's account, instead referring a reporter to statements issued earlier by Dudley and another classmate attesting to Kavanaugh's character. 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. The spokesperson, however, said the reporting should have been assigned to another person.


British reggae band UB40 received a burst of unexpected publicity on Monday after reports surfaced that Judge Brett Kavanaugh allegedly got into an altercation at a CT bar in 1985. The women say Kavanaugh was drunk during the alleged incidents.

"If I were doing the interview, I would want to get as many specifics as I could", Stuber said.

"When he would drink, he would get obnoxious", she said.

Lynne Brookes says Judge Brett Kavanaugh was not telling the whole truth during his testimony this week about allegations of sexual assault.
