Tense exchange between Klobuchar, Kavanaugh over drinking questions

"She asked me a question me at the end, and I responded by asking her a question, and I'm sorry I did that, this is a tough process, I'm sorry about that", Kavanaugh said.

"Still, the problem for me is, he really didn't answer the question about if there have been incidences where he didn't partially remember what happened". She says he assaulted her because that is what she remembers happening to her.

"I, no, I remember what happened", Kavanaugh replied.

"When I heard the sanctimonious talk about some kind of 'political strategy, ' well, I'll give you Exhibit A: Merrick Garland, who was delayed for almost ten months", she said. "But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out, and I never sexually assaulted anyone", Kavanaugh said.

In total, Kavanaugh mentioned "beer" 29 times. "We drink beer. We liked beer", he said. Noting Kavanaugh's apology, Rubin wrote: "The damage was done".

The exchange came a few minutes before a break. "We are incredibly fortunate to have her representing us in the U.S. Senate". Klobuchar added later that she doesn't like "living in an evidence-free zone", without testimony from contemporaries of Kavanaugh and Ford.

Klobuchar's handling of the exchange and her questioning during the hearing also fueled more social media buzz for a presidential run - a long-rumored possibility for the senator - than she's ever generated.

In a Fox News interview on Monday, Kavanaugh said, "Yes, there were parties". As the Judiciary Committee met on Friday to consider advancing Kavanaugh's nomination, she was somewhat more indignant: "When I asked him about this to try to get to the facts... what did I get in response?" the senator asked. He said Kavanaugh's testimony about drinking and the drinking age was "for context" of how Maryland high schoolers obtained beer. The drinking age as I noted, was 18, so the seniors were legal.

The Senate is expected to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation within the week.

"I started my last colloquy by saying to Sen".

During his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee about sexual assault allegations levelled by Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh talked at length about his drinking habits as a teen.

Besides this, all of the top 10 Twitter trending topics in the United States on Thursday were about the same topic- the Kavanaugh- Ford hearing.
