Brett Kavanaugh's Yale Roommate: SCOTUS Nominee Lied Under Oath About His Drinking - WATCH

Roche told CNN his memory of Kavanaugh is that "he was on the far edge of this - he was notably heavier in his drinking than other people".

"I can corroborate Debbie's account", Kenneth G. Appold told the New Yorker in an interview. "But Brett's drinking was unusual".

Kavanaugh blasted the allegation and flatly disputed Roche's characterization in a phone interview with Senate investigators last week, speaking under penalty of perjury.

Dr Ford gave a moving testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee that she feared for her life when Kavanaugh drunkenly assaulted her at a high school party when she was 15. Roche also specifically contests parts of Kavanaugh's testimony where he feels he was untruthful, like his description of the terms "boofing" and "Devil's Triangle".

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the misconduct allegations against him.

The FBI report on Brett Kavanaugh will be revealed to Senators this morning.

Roche, who says he knew both Kavanaugh and his accuser Deborah Ramirez well in college, says that he has previously supported Ramirez and believes her accusations that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a party in their dorm.

"Many, many people saw what I saw. I heard them talk about it regularly". "There were times when I did the exact same thing".

I know this because I heard Brett and his friends using these terms on multiple occasions, ' Roche wrote, without elaborating on how he claims Kavanaugh used the phrases. "And so it felt to me like somebody had to get up and speak for her".

Supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Sept. 27, 2018.

Kavanaugh would be "incoherent, stumbling" when he came back to their shared room, Roche said.

Immediately after President Trump nominated Judge Kavanaugh in July, hundreds of Yale law students, alumni and faculty signed a petition claiming the nomination presented an "emergency. for our safety".

Senate Democrats say the investigation was incomplete and may have been limited by the White House.

According to the three - Charles Ludington, Lynne Brookes and Elizabeth Swisher - Kavanaugh perjured himself when he said under oath that he never drank to the point to forgetting what he was doing.

The word "boof" has also been closely examined by detractors of Kavanaugh, who say it refers to another sexual act.

"As a general matter, if the FBI is conducting an investigation. they decide who they need to talk to", said Carrie Cordero, a former counsel to the USA assistant attorney general for national security. "We are profoundly disappointed that after the tremendous sacrifice she made in coming forward, those directing the FBI investigation were not interested in seeking the truth".

Meanwhile late on Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell set a crucial threshold vote on Kavanaugh's nomination for Friday.
