Lynne Brookes, a Republican woman who was a classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at Yale, accused President Donald Trump’s SCOTUS pick of “blatantly lying” during his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Brrokes told CNN host Chris Cuomo that she and her fellow Yale alums were “extremely disappointed in Kavanaugh’s characterization of himself and the way he evaded his excessive drinking questions.
“There is no doubt in my mind that while at Yale he was a big partier, often drank to excess,” she said. “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.”
“There were a lot of emails and a lot of texts flying around about how he was lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee today,” she added.
Brookes said she personally drank to “excess many nights with Brett Kavanaugh” and recalled him barging into a room “where a guy and girl had gone off together and embarrassed that woman.”
“They thought it was funny. The girl was mortified,” she said, adding that Kavanaugh was “blatant lying.”
