Amy Klobuchar Weighs In On Her Confrontation With Brett Kavanaugh

Amy Klobuchar Weighs In On Her Confrontation With Brett Kavanaugh

Jerry Brown suggested Friday that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's defense of his drinking habits raised doubts about his entire denial of a sexual assault allegation.

The Minnesota Democrat added that her experience comes from having an alcoholic father who, at 90, is in Alcoholics Anonymous.

Kavanaugh's drinking has come under intense scrutiny after California professor Christine Blasey Ford alleged that a heavily intoxicated Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were both teenagers at a Maryland house party during the summer of 1982.

Klobuchar: Drinking is one thing, but the concern is about truthfulness and in your written testimony you said sometimes you had too many drinks.

Later on, though, Kavanaugh continued to talk about his drinking behavior by saying the same statement over and over again: "I like beer". "I drank beer with my friends".

"Could you answer the question judge?"

"When I heard the sanctimonious talk about some kind of 'political strategy, ' well, I'll give you Exhibit A: Merrick Garland, who was delayed for almost ten months", she said.

"When it happens, you don't just put it under the rug", she said. "That's not happened, is that your answer?"

They were 2 down early until Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson collapsed by losing four straight holes, three of them with bogeys. That's what should be most worrisome to Furyk - they had no answer for Europe's bevy of strong iron players.

Kavanaugh: "I responded by asking her a question and I didn't - I'm sorry I did that".

Kavanaugh: You're asking about blackout.

"Yeah, and I'm curious if you have?" "I disagree with her politics, but if more Senators behaved like Amy Klobuchar behaved today, we'd have a far more dignified process and Senate", Erickson tweeted on Thursday night.

"I have no drinking problem, judge", Klobuchar said.

"What are you hiding?" she asked.

Kavanaugh could legally drink in nearby Washington, D.C., for the final five months of high school.

Echoing what some have argued, Berman said that Kavanaugh's surreal response revealed more about who he is than anything he might have said in response to Klobuchar's question.
