Trevor Noah Marvels At Brett Kavanaugh’s Bar Brawling Past

Trevor Noah Marvels At Brett Kavanaugh’s Bar Brawling Past

Stephen Colbert had jokes after a former classmate alleged that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh got into a bar fight after attending a UB40 concert in 1985, while he was a student at Yale University.

Ludington claimed the bar fight occurred after Kavanaugh and his friends attended a UB40 concert on September 25.

Former Yale classmate Chad Ludington became the latest to accuse Kavanaugh of being dishonest, saying that when he watched Kavanaugh deliver his testimony under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, he "cringed" and adding that he was willing to talk to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Charles Ludington, who was a witness, said a man resembling UB40's lead singer had asked Mr Kavanaugh and his friend Chris Dudley to stop looking at him and used an expletive.

The report says 21-year-old Dom Cozzolino told police that Kavanaugh threw ice at him for "some unknown reason". (However, the report doesn't say if any arrests or charges were made.) And while Kavanaugh keeps toeing the line that he never partied that much in college, the information spewing forth seems to indicate otherwise. According to Ludington, Kavanaugh and his friends mistook a man at the bar for the band's lead singer. "I don't know what Brett was doing in the melee, but there was blood, there was glass, there was beer and there was some shouting, and the police showed up".

For their part, UB40 seems to want no part in the Kavanaugh drama, taking to their Twitter to address the renewed focus on their band. "In this climate, had he simply said "I don't remember" or even 'If I did these things in my youth I am sorry, ' he might have sailed through the confirmation process". But Kavanaugh's willingness to lie under oath "should have effect", he said.

Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, both of whom claim he sexually assaulted them under the influence.

Ludington said in the statement that Kavanaugh was a belligerent, aggressive drunk who hung out with jocks, drank other alcohol products in addition to beer, and he once saw Kavanaugh throw a drink in a man's face as a response to a semi-hostile remark.

During an angry and emotional statement to a nomination hearing in Washington last week, Mr Kavanaugh said he "drank beer with my friends".

On Monday, Van Gelder said her client had been questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation but the interview was "not completed". Soon the man and Kavanaugh "were connected in some head lock or wrestling form", Ludington said. Kavanaugh has denied every allegation, calling Swetnick's claims a "farce".

Democrats have seized on Kavanaugh's indignant, emotional testimony before the Judiciary Committee to question whether he has the temperament for a lifetime appointment on the nation's highest court.
