As a teen, Kavanaugh was never a legal drinker in Maryland

Senate Judiciary Committee

Klobuchar, a Minnesota Democrat, criticized the Republicans who control the committee for moving too quickly amid allegations against sexual assault against Kavanaugh buy Christine Blasey Ford and other women.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has readily acknowledged that he often drank beer during his prep school days and made a point in his congressional testimony that seniors could buy beer legally...

"I was going to say, I started my last colloquy by saying to Senator Klobuchar how much I respect her and respected what she did at the last hearing, and she asked me a question at the end that I responded to by asking her a question".

"You're asking about blackout, I don't know, have you?"

Earlier this month, Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University in California, had alleged that Kavanaugh had assaulted her during a party in the 1980s when they were both in high school.

Klobuchar added that Kavanaugh "didn't really answer the question" of whether he ever blacked out. "That's not happened, is that your answer?"

There was a grandfather clause in the Maryland law, but only for those who were 18, 19 or 20 on the day the increase went into effect, thereby not including Kavanaugh.

He also told Fox News in his interview Monday: "Yes, there were parties, and yes, the drinking age was 18".

China urges U.S. to stop slander after Trump's election meddling claim
On Tuesday, Trump had extended "special thanks" to Xi for support of US efforts to get North Korea to commit to denuclearization. The US distributor of China Daily is registered as a foreign agent in the United States under the US Foreign Registration Act.

Klobuchar asked Kavanaugh about his drinking.

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

Klobuchar's handling of the exchange and her questioning during the hearing also fueled more social media buzz for a presidential run - a long-rumored possibility for the senator - than she's ever generated.

She said she also thinks the Federal Bureau of Investigation should question Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the room when Kavanaugh had attacked her.

After a brief recess, Kavanaugh apologized to Klobuchar for his remarks. I'm sorry I did that.

"What I think Sen". Yes, we drank beer, I like beer, I still like beer, we drank beer.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is slated to vote on Kavanaugh at 9:30 a.m. Friday.
