While much of the last three weeks have focused on numerous sexual assault allegations towards Judge Brett Kavanaugh, this most recent week Democrats and the media have been focusing on what appears to be inaccurate statements made on the part of Kavanaugh during his Senate testimony last Thursday.
In a letter just published by the New York Times from 1983, new evidence showing that Kavanaugh considered himself a ‘loud obnoxious drunk’ has emerged. This would appear to counter his own testimony before the Senate where he claims he never blacked out and portrayed himself as ‘liking beer’ but not an out-of-control drunk.
The letter, which Kavanaugh wrote, shortly before an overseas trip with seven fellow Georgetown Preparatory School classmates, closes with the following passage:
“P.S. It would probably be a good idea on Sat. the 18th to warn the neighbors that we’re loud, obnoxious drunks with prolific pukers among us.”
Another interesting piece of information is that Kavanaugh signs the letter ‘FFFFF Bart’. If you recall from the hearing, Kavanaugh refused to directly answer Senator Leahy when asked if he went by this name, simply stating that “You’d have to ask him” — referring to his friend Mark Judge, who wrote that Kavanaugh went by this name in his book.
The usage of “FFFFF” before his name is also interesting because of the fact that Kavanaugh testified that the 5-F’s were used to poke fun at his friend Squee’s stuttering problem while saying the F-word. But if that were the case, then why the usage in this letter before his own name?
Note that Michael Avenatti, one of Kavanaugh’s accuser’s attorneys suggested that “FFFFF” meant “Find them, French them, Feel them, Finger them, F*ck them, Forget them”.
While these letters may not be direct evidence that Kavanaugh lied to the Judiciary Committee last week, it certainly suggests that he portrayed himself in a different manner than his past actions suggest.
