Kavanaugh Was 'Aggressive And Belligerent' When Drunk, His Yale Roommate Says

Students from Yale Law School protest in Washington D.C. Monday

Dozens of students, wearing black, staged a sit-in at the law school Monday, while others traveled to Washington, D.C.to protest the nomination on Capitol Hill, lining the halls of the Senate and demonstrating in front of several different offices.

The allegations that a Supreme Court nominee attempted to rape Christina Blasey Ford when the two of them were in high school (allegations which Kavanaugh has denied outright) have continued to ripple through the nation's discourse, uncovering all sorts of other stories along the way.

Osler, a former federal prosecutor and a professor at the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minneapolis, said in a phone interview that "corroborating evidence" is necessary to determine what occurred. Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both teenagers in the 1980s.

On Sunday, another woman, Deborah Ramirez, came forward with a second allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.

"We're talking about a jury of one: Susan Collins", said an unnamed senior Republican aide, who noted that Republican Sens.

The nomination would fail if Collins and another Republican join all of the Democrats in opposing Kavanaugh.

Former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, says he caught Kavanaugh lying a few times in testimony before the committee.

- Brett Kavanaugh's ex-freshman roommate at Yale issued a written statement on Tuesday, after a woman in a New Yorker article accused the Supreme Court nominee of pulling down his trousers 35 years ago and thrusting himself in her face.

Instagram departures hit Facebook shares
The firm believes the app will bring in only $662.1 million this year, compared to its earlier forecast of $1.03 billion. When the pair sold Instagram to the social network in 2012, Facebook gave them free rein to run it independently.

"We are in contact with the Senate Judiciary Committee to determine the best process to provide Senators with additional information", Clune wrote. Kavanaugh has denied that either incident occurred.

This is a breaking news story.

In a statement, Dean Heather Gerken said she can't take a position on the Kavanaugh nomination but she stands with her students in supporting fair process and the rule of law.

"This would be 100% contrary to the character of the man I know and a powerful punch in the gut", Rivera, an attorney in Houston and a political independent, wrote in an email, calling Kavanaugh "honorable" and "respectful". Sanders, however, said the "absolutely appalling and disgusting" behavior of Democratic lawmakers who have opposed Kavanaugh has turned the confirmation process into a "huge public circus".

Kavanaugh declined during his confirmation hearings to say if Roe was correctly decided or if he would vote to uphold it as a justice.

She also told the magazine she was inebriated as well and has admitted to holes in her memory of some details.

"It effectively encourages students to participate in the protests and penalizes those who choose not to by disrupting the class schedule".
