Kavanaugh wrongly claims he could drink legally in Md

"Most people have done some drinking in high school and college, and many people even struggle with alcoholism and binge drinking", Klobuchar said to Kavanaugh". The legal age in that state was raised to 21 on July 1, 1982; Kavanaugh did not turn 18 until February 12, 1983.

A New Yorker report published Sunday detailed an allegation that Kavanaugh exposed himself to Deborah Ramirez, a Yale student, at a dorm-room party as onlookers watched during the 1983-84 school year. "The drinking age was 18 in Maryland for most of my time in high school and was 18 in D.C. for all of my time in high school". Senior year in high school, people were legal to drink.

The White House argued Friday that Kavanaugh's testimony about drinking was not meant to be misleading, but provided "context" about how Maryland high schoolers obtained beer.

The author of 'Normal Girl, novelist Molly Jong-Fast tweeted, "Brett Kavanaugh will not apologize for loving beer and being an angry drunk".

"There is a bright line between drinking beer, which I gladly do, and which I fully embrace, and sexually assaulting someone, which is a violent crime". In fact, he still likes beer. Anyone who turned 18 after that date, including Kavanaugh's classmates, also would have been unable to drink legally in the state.

The reason the subject came up was pretty clear: Christine Blasey Ford, the California research psychologist who says he tried to rape her when they were both in high school, described him as very drunk at the time, and one possible explanation for his seeming sincerity in denying her charge (in addition to the possibility that he is innocent) is that he honestly does not recall the episode because alcohol clouded his memory. She then asked Kavanaugh if he had ever drank so much he "didn't remember what happened the night before or part of what happened". "I still like beer. And I think you've probably had beers, senator".

But the biggest concern in the White House is that with more time , more women, more accusations and more stories could emerge. Now it's time for the committee to ensure that every reasonable step is taken and impose a firm and fair process.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, the Minnesota Democrat who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, is known for taking a sober, detail-oriented approach in questioning those who appear before the committee.

"So you're saying there's never been a case where you drank so much that you didn't remember what happened the night before or part of what happened". "I don't know if you do".

"My friends and I sometimes got together and had parties on weekends", he said in his opening statement.

"Yeah, and I'm curious if you have", Kavanaugh said.

Earlier in the hearing, Kavanaugh said he enjoyed drinking - the legal drinking age at the time was 18-years-old - but claimed that he never went beyond social norms.

Under Maryland law, a person under the age of 21 can not consume or possess alcohol except in certain circumstances, including in a private home with the consent and under the supervision of an adult over the age of 21.
