Kavanaugh's memory of himself in school is very different than yearbook portrayal

The New York State Bar Association says the FBI should investigate allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh. Harvard Law spokespeople twice declined to comment and once did not respond to the Crimson's multiple requests for clarity on whether Harvard will allow Kavanaugh to continue serving as a Lecturer on Law.

The school's students, however, have been notably more outspoken, with The Harvard Crimson reporting that hundreds of law school students walked out of class during Thursday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in a show of support for Kavanaugh's accusers.

The dean of Yale Law School is calling for further investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct made against Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh even as a Senate committee advanced his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Mark Judge, the other man Christine Blasey Ford said sexually assaulted her with Kavanugh, wrote in the yearbook "Bart, have you boofed yet?" She likened Thursday's hearing to the proceedings years ago involving Justice Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill.

Kavanaugh later testified after Ford, and in his opening statement, called the hearings a "national disgrace" before denying the allegations.

"They were very disrespectful, at least verbally, with Renate", Sean Hagan, a Georgetown Prep student at the time, said of Kavanaugh and his teammates, in an interview with the Times.

The most recent of these calls came from Yale, Kavanaugh's alma mater for both undergraduate studies and law school. He'd do so, Flake said, if the vote was delayed a week so the FBI could investigate "credible allegations" against the nominee. Jeff Flake balked at voting for confirmation without it - a sudden turn that left Senate approval newly uncertain amid allegations of sexual assault. "I think Brett must have me confused with someone else", she said through her lawyer.

Almost 50 Yale Law School faculty have signed a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee demanding a full investigation into the accusations against Kavanaugh. "She was like smiling, pretty happy", said Quinnipiac Student Scott Pitz.

Two other key Republicans, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, said they backed the plan after they and other GOP senators met for an hour in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office in the Capitol.

When Whitehouse asked Kavanaugh to define the term, Kavanaugh asked the senator, "You ever played quarters?"

He told reporters in a Capitol hallway, "Just watching the hearing yesterday, the questions and then the reporting on it afterwards".

"If we want to talk about flatulence at age 16 on a yearbook page, I'm game", he told Sen. "I didn't tell anyone, and you're telling all women that they don't matter, that they should just stay quiet because if they tell you what happened to them you are going to ignore them", Gallagher said. "We have to be sure we do due diligence", he said. "Don't look away from me", she said.

Kavanaugh also asserts during the interview that he was a virgin in and after high school, though it's unclear how that would nullify the claims made by Ford that he attempted to rape her, but didn't. "He was always one of the beer drinking boys and I drank beer with him", Swisher said.
