Kavanaugh was described as "belligerent and aggressive" by Ludington, who said he would provide the Federal Bureau of Investigation with information "detailing violent drunken behavior by Kavanaugh in college".

"I like beer, I still like beer, ' Mr Kavanaugh testified under oath".

Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied drinking to excess, in part because a history of alcohol consumption that would severely impair his judgment or lead to memory loss is central to the allegations of Dr.

When the man noticed Ludington, Kavanaugh and the others looking at him, he objected and told them to stop it, adding an expletive, Ludington said.

When asked about Judge Kavanaugh's drinking habits during a news conference on Monday, Mr Trump said he thought his answers during the hearing were "excellent".

Ludington is a professor at North Carolina State University, The New York Times reports, and he has appeared to have made small political contributions to Democratic candidates.

In last week's hearing, Ms Blasey Ford said Mr Judge witnessed Mr Kavanaugh's alleged assault and jumped on top of them as it happened, sending all three tumbling and allowing her to escape. "This is about the integrity of the Supreme Court", she said.

In his appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday, Kavanaugh called the confirmation process "a national disgrace" and aggressively denied charges of sexual impropriety, including allegations by Ford that he laid on top of her and tried to forcibly remove her clothes during a party in high school.

NAFTA negotiations: Canada and Trump administration at impasse
Sources familiar with the talks told Reuters on September 11 that Canada was ready to give the United States limited dairy access. Canadian leaders have objected to Trump's decision to impose tariffs on Canadian steel, citing national security.

"I watched him. I was surprised at how vocal he was about the fact that he likes beer, and he's had a little bit of difficulty", Trump told a reporter. The Washington Post caught up with Ludington last night to get more of the story on the bar fight and Kavanaugh's role in it, a role that apparently didn't even interest police at the time enough to detain the future jurist. The problem is lying about it. He played drinking games. "He was sloppy drunk".

Ms Brookes was also roommates with another Kavanaugh accuser, Deborah Ramirez, but says she never saw him sexually abuse anyone nor did she feel unsafe around him.

James Roche, Kavanaugh's freshman year roommate at Yale, also spoke out.

Wrote Ludington: "In recent days I have become deeply troubled by what has been a blatant mischaracterization by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale". "And in all the years I have known him, I have never seen him to be disrespectful or inappropriate with women". When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive.

The White House did not immediately respond to requests from the Times for comment on Monday. Sams said he and other friends helped Dudley out of the bar.

Although the committee on Friday approved Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, it was conditional on a new inquiry into what it said were the "credible allegations" facing him.

Kavanaugh first cursed at the man.
