Letter: Kavanaugh’s statements misleading


Gulping water like a cornered rat, Brett Kavanaugh yelled that the Judiciary Committee hearing on Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault allegation against him was “a national disgrace,” “a political hit” and “revenge on behalf of the Clintons.”

Partisan, belligerent and emotionally incontinent, he interrupted the Democratic senators when they tried to question him; and if they managed to get a question out, he answered some other question.

Asked about his drinking habits by Sen. Amy Klobuchar, he asked her about hers.

Time after time, he made inaccurate and incredible statements. He claimed that Blasey Ford’s witnesses said it never happened.

What they actually said was that they didn’t remember it, and one said later that she believed Dr. Ford.

He said the lewd allusion to a girl in his high school yearbook was an expression of affection, and that he didn’t record his extensive church-going on the detailed calendar of his activities because “going to church was like brushing my teeth.”

He said he liked beer and he looked as if he had had a few.
