Kavanaugh questioned by police in 1985 over Yale bar fight
He rejects the charges as well as ever drinking to the point of memory loss.
Mitchell argued that that there were inconsistencies in accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s narrative and said no one has corroborated Ford’s account.
It’s important to remember Kavanaugh wasn’t arrested, and Dudley denies the accusation.
Ludington said the aggressive act by Kavanaugh touched off a brief melee.
Ludington said he felt it was his civic duty to speak up and that he had no desire to speak further to the media.
Democrats fume that the White House is interfering in the FBI probe, limiting its scope and refusing to allow the bureau to take testimony from Kavanaugh and other crucial witnesses.
Dudley said Kavanaugh consumed alcohol, but never too much.
He said he planned to tell his story to the F.B.I.at its office in Raleigh, N.C., on Monday.
The White House did not have any immediate reaction on behalf of itself or Kavanaugh, but directed CNN to comments made by Chris Dudley, a close friend of Kavanaugh’s and a former National Basketball Association player.
On Monday, Donald Trump said he believed Kavanaugh’s testimony when asked if he would pull the nomination, were it to be revealed Kavanaugh lied about his drinking.
“He had a little bit of difficulty; he talked about things that happened when he drank”. “This is not a man who said that he was ideal with respect to alcohol”.
Here’s something you might not expect to enter a conversation about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh: The band UB40.

Another of Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates, Charles Ludington, described this incident to The Washington Post, saying it occurred after a UB40 concert.
As for Kavanaugh, he confirmed to the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday that he has never blacked out or become incoherent from drinking.
The report shows that Dudley denied being involved, as did Kavanaugh.
“If I were doing the interview, I would want to get as many specifics as I could”, Stuber said.
The White House did not offer an official response to the story. It was that restlessness that prompted him to come forward, he said.
Trump initially opposed such an investigation as allegations began mounting but relented and ordered one on Friday.
She alleges that Mr Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in the early 1980s when they were both students at Yale. She claims Kavanaugh assaulted her when she was 15.
The judge is said to have thrown ice at someone who he thought resembled the English reggae band’s lead singer Ali Campbell.
She said Mr Kavanaugh was “very inebriated”, and feared he was “accidentally going to kill me”.
That tweet drew the attention of a number of critics who contended Bazelon’s opposition to Kavanaugh presented a conflict of interest for The Times.
“… I do know that nobody bumped me on the head with a block of ice in a bar”. Her response was to try hard to make friends and get along.
Seriously, Twitter can not stop making this joke. And I do believe that Brett’s actions as a 53-year-old federal judge matter.
“I do not consider myself to be a political person and I have no political agenda”.
