"Senior year in high school, people were legal to drink".
Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC. He said Kavanaugh's testimony about drinking and the drinking age was "for context" of how Maryland high schoolers obtained beer.
He also told Fox News in his interview Monday: "Yes, there were parties, and yes, the drinking age was 18". The drinking age as I noted, was 18, so the seniors were legal. Senior year in high school, people were legal to drink. But the discussion of Kavanaugh's drinking during high school and college ranged beyond that narrow issue, and his responses were by turns defiant, evasive, implausible, and misleading. But in any event, we drank beer, and - and still do.
"There is a bright line between drinking beer, which I gladly do, and which I fully embrace, and sexually assaulting someone, which is a violent crime". Sometimes others did. I liked beer. He could have legally purchased and consumed alcohol in the capital - but only in the last four months of his senior year, after he turned 18.
Brett Kavanaugh came of age in the 1980s, a time when high school drinking was at its peak. She then asked Kavanaugh if he had ever drank so much he "didn't remember what happened the night before or part of what happened".

"I liked beer. I still like beer". "I think you've probably had beers, senator". In one of the more tense exchanges, he asked Sen.
Brett Kavanaugh gave a spirited defense of his conduct and character at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, during which he was accused of drunken sexual assault, but mentioned drinking beer almost 30 times. Klobuchar, nodding slightly, returned to the questioning: "You're saying there's never been a case when you drank so much that you didn't remember what happened the night before, or part of what happened?" "I don't know if you do".
