Whether Kavanaugh will continue teaching, Manning wouldn't say.

Kavanaugh had testified on Thursday following an appearance of Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed he had sexually assaulted her when they were both teenagers. Those accusations featured in the hearing, and Kavanaugh refuted them as pure fantasy during his opening statement. "A woman who was present, another woman who was present who was Dr. Ford's lifelong friend has said she doesn't know me and never remembers being at a party with me at any time in her life".

Some of Brett's favorite drinking games include Devils Triangle and Quarters. I did some stupid things, but I never sexually assaulted anybody.

Kavanaugh's lawyer claims the yearbook refers to one occasion when Kavanaugh kissed Ms. Dolphin. I guess a lot of people are figuring out Kavanaugh wasn't almost as "respectful" towards women as they were led to believe.

"I learned about these yearbook pages only a few days ago", Dolphin said in a statement to the Times.

Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse told Kavanaugh at Thursday's hearing the yearbook pages were relevant because it was from the time numerous alleged incidents took place. She said she could not take a position on the nomination but she was proud of the work students and faculty have done to engage with the issues. Dolphin signed the letter sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee before she knew about the yearbook reference. She said she didn't tell anyone before this week.

Kavanaugh said that he was a virgin for "many years thereafter" his time spent at Georgetown Prep.

Kavanaugh also denied that the "Devil's Triangle" entry referred to group sex with women, telling staffers it concerns a drinking game involving three glasses of beer arranged in a triangle.

"The beauty of seventh grade is that they're starting to think for themselves, but I also try to be really careful so as not to get emails from parents saying I'm trying to 'push an agenda, '" she wrote in an email.

Brooks says she is a Republican and that she admires Kavanaugh's judicial record. She reportedly told the football players that she found it offensive and asked them to stop.

"There had to be a number of nights where he does not remember", she said. Asked why his ex-roommate would say that he could see Kavanaugh treating a woman this way, the nominee said: "I'm not going to speculate about motives". His freshman roommate at Yale University, James Roche, told the New Yorker that he never witnessed Kavanaugh engage in any sexual misconduct, but that he does recall him being "frequently, incoherently drunk".

After hearing about Flake's request, she said the sequence of events suggested their conversation helped move him. Ford alleges Kavanaugh pinned her down, groped her, and tried to remove her clothes.

Samantha Peltz, a 26-year-old law student from Chicago, said many students have been calling for a fair hearing of the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh. "This is particularly so for an appointment that will yield a deciding vote on women's rights and myriad other questions of huge outcome in American lives".
