Klobuchar said she does not know if Kavanaugh will be confirmed.

"I was going to say, I started my last colloquy by saying to Senator Klobuchar how much I respect her and respected what she did at the last hearing, and she asked me a question at the end that I responded to by asking her a question". Nearly everyone did. Sometimes I had too many beers.

"She was willing to come forward, not to just a jury box of strangers...for the nation", said Klobuchar.

Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, had a stand-off during the contentious public hearing surrounding the allegations from Christine Blasey Ford, a professor who claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers in the 1980s. "And in your written testimony, you said sometimes you had too many drinks".

Kavanaugh answered: "No. I remember what happened". I'm sorry I did that. "We are incredibly fortunate to have her representing us in the U.S. Senate". When the hearing resumed, Kavanaugh apologized to Klobuchar for his response to her question.

In appearances on Friday, Klobuchar stopped short of spiking the football: on CBS "This Morning", she said that she would have gotten thrown out of Kavanaugh's courtroom in a trial if she behaved like he had. "Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes". "A question of if I black out".

Key to Kavanaugh's defense was that he had never drank beer to the point of memory loss, but he strongly defended his beer drinking and the habit generally.

After a brief recess, Kavanaugh apologized to Klobuchar for his remarks. Now, her line of inquiry will likely be picked up by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which the Judiciary Committee asked to investigate Ford's claims in a surprising move on Friday. So I entered college an underage drinker, became legal in September 1984, and a year later became illegal again, a status that lasted for a year.

"Most people have done some drinking in high school and college, and many people even struggle with alcoholism and binge drinking", Klobuchar said to Kavanaugh". Klobuchar said, looking somewhat surprised by the response. "It was probably the most telling moment of the whole proceeding", he said, "because in that moment, you saw the belligerence and the nastiness of a person who one could then easily imagine having participated in some of the incidents he's accused of having committed". After that, Kavanaugh's nomination would head to the Senate floor for a series of votes.

Kavanaugh also grew visibly frustrated under questioning by Sen.
