An attorney for Deborah Ramirez, a Boulder woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct while they attended Yale more than three decades ago, says the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not allow its agents to fully investigate her claims. Speaking to the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 27 following Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault allegations, Kavanaugh repeatedly asserted he "liked beer" but that his drinking was under control. Kavanaugh strongly denies the allegation.
Roche also wrote an op-ed for Slate. The letter includes statements from several people who learned of the alleged incident around the time it occurred at Yale University, including a declaration from a new potential witness.
Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee he never blacked out while drinking. The entry included references to drinking and parties as well as two terms that most likely have never before been spoken aloud inside a Senate hearing room: "boofed" and "Devil's Triangle".
Kavanaugh's college roommate, James Roche, has also come forward to dispute Kavanaugh's claims that he rarely drank to excess in high school and college.
"Now the FBI is investigating this incident". I wasn't called. I assume college behaviour was not a topic of interest.

"I have some memories of him", he says. On Wednesday, Jamie Roche, Kavanaugh's freshman year roommate at Yale told CNN that he heard Kavanaugh use the term to refer to sexual activity.
Roche told Anderson that Kavanaugh lied under oath about his drinking. "We were in a room together, our beds were 10 feet apart for a couple of months".
'Not only did I know that he wasn't telling the truth I knew that he knew that he wasn't telling the truth, ' he continued.
"I know Debbie, and I know from my experience with her that there is zero chance that she is making up this story", he said.
Roche later issued a lengthier statement describing Kavanaugh as a heavy drinker in college. "With this additional information, the White House is fully confident the Senate will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court", deputy press secretary Raj Shah said on Twitter.

Amid complaints that some lawmakers were being confronted outside their homes, McConnell claimed on the Senate floor that the protesters were "part of the organized effort" to derail Kavanaugh's nomination. But they said they were compelled to speak out to maintain the integrity of the court.
The incident allegedly took place in a common area of the dorm where Scheuerman and Kavanaugh lived.
But Maine's Susan Collins says she wants to read the report for herself.
