Times says it was wrong to have writer on Kavanaugh story

Liz Swisher a former Yale classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh alleges he lied under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee

The newspaper said that it stood by its story, published Monday, which said Kavanaugh was questioned by police in New Haven, Connecticut, after he was accused of throwing ice at another bar patron.

The report said that the victim, Dom Cozzolino, "was bleeding from the right ear" and was treated at a hospital. According to his Yale classmate and former drinking buddy Chad Ludington, that fight started after Kavanaugh and friends mistook a man in the bar for Ali Campbell, the frontman of the British reggae group UB40, much to the band's chagrin.

Dudley and Cozzolino didn't immediately return messages on Tuesday.

Given that Twitter remark, the White House has questioned the Times' motivation in writing the story. When approached, the man said something aggressive, and Kavanaugh escalated the situation by throwing his drink at him. We talked at night as freshman roommates do, and I would see him as he returned from nights out with his friends. Kavanaugh's drinking history, which has come up in the allegations, is not part of the probe, a source tells CNN.

That tweet drew the attention of a number of critics who contended Bazelon's opposition to Kavanaugh presented a conflict of interest for The Times. He also said he never saw Kavanaugh black out. I was with Brett frequently in college, whether it be in the gym, in class or socializing.

On Monday, the White House circulated a statement from Dudley, who went on to play in the National Basketball Association and run for governor of OR in 2010.

"The person [reporters] are trying to describe", Dudley added, "would not be able to function day to day". Mayorga reported the incident in 2009, but Las Vegas officials said they had no suspect in the case.

In New Haven, where Yale students drive the nightlife and bar fights are not uncommon, Hartman said it was unusual to have national media clamoring for a two-page police report of an incident that was unremarkable, if not for the people involved. "We're a college town, lots of bars, lots of establishments that serve liquor".
