Kavanaugh wrongly claims he could drink legally in Md

Fending off the accusation that he drunkenly assaulted a 15-year-old when he was a teen, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday that it was legal to drink alcohol at age 18 for "most of the time" he was in high school. Earlier in the exchange, she told the judge that she understood alcoholism because her father was an alcoholic. The federal judge's drinking habits were under the microscope: Ford alleges Kavanaugh was visibly intoxicated during the assault, and a wealth of evidence indicates he traveled in hard-drinking social circles in high school and college.

"She asked me a question me at the end, and I responded by asking her a question, and I'm sorry I did that, this is a tough process, I'm sorry about that", Kavanaugh said.

"Drinking is one thing, but the concern is about truthfulness", Klobuchar said.

Shah insisted that Kavanaugh had said the legal drinking age was 18 because it "allowed friends to legally purchase beer, and for him to drink at high school parties", the AP reported.

"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?"

"When it happens, you don't just put it under the rug", she said. "And what I was trying to get at was that you have this incredibly convincing testimony in the morning from Dr. Ford".

Klobuchar: Could you answer the question?

Kavanaugh: Yea and nor do I.

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

"Whatever else he was saying, there's no doubt that he was a heavy drinker and he told the exact opposite statement", Brown said "So his lies, I think, are relatively well-proved and I hope the Federal Bureau of Investigation can figure that out".

"This is in the hands of really two of my colleagues, Senator Collins and Senator Murkowski", she said.

Klobuchar said she does not know if Kavanaugh will be confirmed.
