Klobuchar: Kavanaugh Would Have Thrown Me Out of His Courtroom

Minnesota's Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar said Friday that if she was in Brett Kavanaugh's courtroom and acted like he did towards her in Thursday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, "he would have thrown me out".

"She was willing to come forward, not to just a jury box of strangers...for the nation", said Klobuchar.

Later in the hearing, Kavanaugh apologized, but it was a back-and-forth that seemed to encapsulate the nasty tone of the hearing and clips of the judge's remarks quickly went viral on social media.

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

Klobuchar added that Kavanaugh "didn't really answer the question" of whether he ever blacked out.

"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?"

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. Judge? To you? That's not happened. "And what I was trying to get at was that you have this incredibly convincing testimony in the morning from Dr. Ford". "That's not happened, is that your answer?"

"I liked beer. I still like beer, but I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out and I never sexually assaulted anyone", Kavanaugh said.

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

Klobuchar: "I appreciate that". She asked me a question and I responded with a question, and I am sorry I did that.

According to Paul Schiff Berman, a professor at George Washington University Law School who teaches civil procedure, the most important question in the Kavanaugh fight has become the degree to which he is "outright lying" about his past, including how much he drank in high school and college. If everyone in high school who drank beer in this country was accused of sexual assault, Kavanaugh said, the country would be in a dark place.
