Following yesterday’s testimony by Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh, many questions remain unanswered. One such question is why did Kavanaugh repeatedly deny getting blackout drunk, when individuals who partied with him seem to refute those claims.
Last night, yet another classmate of Kavanaugh from Yale University, Lynne Brookes, came forward and called into CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time to accuse the judge of ‘blatant lying.’ Brooke’s, who was the roommate of one of Kavanaugh’s accusers, Debbie Ramirez, told Cuomo in the past that she didn’t want to get involved, but after watching Kavanaugh’s testimony yesterday, she said that she could no longer keep quiet.
Brookes told Cuomo that “a number” of her Yale classmates, along with herself, were “extremely disappointed in Kavanaugh’s characterization of himself and the way that he evaded his excessive drinking questions,” before telling her story, live on the air.
“There is no doubt in my mind that while at Yale he was a big partier, often drank to excess,” she explained. “And there had to be a number of nights where he does not remember. In fact, I was witness to the night that he got tapped into that fraternity, and he was stumbling drunk in a ridiculous costume saying really dumb things. And I can almost guarantee that there’s no way that he remembers that night.”
Brookes said that during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, her and multiple classmates from Yale were emailing and texting their outrage to each other as Kavanaugh told lie after lie to the American people.
“I drank to excess many nights with Brett Kavanaugh,” Brookes admitted.
Now it’s up to Republicans on the committee to decide if they want to bring about a committee vote this morning, postpone a vote, or pull the nomination altogether. A vote is currently planned for this morning.
