Yale classmates Lynne Brookes, Liz Swisher says Kavanaugh lied about drinking in college

Deborah Ramirez‘s roommate, Liz Swisher, says she knows nothing of Ramirez’s allegations against the SCOTUS nominee, but appeared on CNN to state that her Yale classmate lied under oath about his drinking. Lynne Brookes spoke to Chris Cuomo on Thursday, attacking the “choir boy” image he was attempting to portray, stating that he’s lying about his drinking.

Brett Kavanaugh

Swisher tells Chris Cuomo that she knew Brett Kavanaugh since their freshmen year and “he was always one of the beer drinking boys,” reflecting on drinking with him, enjoying beer during college herself. “The problem is lying about it.”

Brookes told Cuomo Thursday that she is “extremely disappointed” in the judge’s “blatant lying.”

In a phone call, Lynne Brookes said: “I watched the whole hearing, and a number of my Yale colleagues and I were extremely disappointed in Brett Kavanaugh’s characterization of himself and the way that he evaded his excessive drinking questions. There is no doubt in my mind that while at Yale, he was a big partier, often drank to excess, and there had to be a number of nights where he does not remember. In fact, I would witness to the night that he got tapped into that fraternity, and he was stumbling drunk in a ridiculous costume saying really dumb things. I can almost guarantee that there’s no way that he remembers that night … There were a lot of emails and a lot of texts flying around about how he was lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee today.”

Swisher, a Democrat, also went public to the Washington Post. “Brett [Kavanaugh] was a sloppy drunk, and I know because I drank with him. I watched him drink more than a lot of people. …it’s not credible for him to say that he has had no memory lapses in the nights that he drank to excess.”

Both contend that this is not about drinking practices, but about proving whether Kavanaugh has the character to serve on the Supreme Court, she noted. “It is about the truth,” Brookes said. “I will tell my boys … as their coach, that winning isn’t everything. It should be about how you play the game.”

Kavanaugh has been attacked for wrongly stating that it was legal to drink in high school. In fact, he was never legal in high school because the state’s drinking age increased to 21 at the end of his junior year, while he was still 17.

President Trump instructed the FBI to investigate in a quick, limited examination of the allegations.
