She later revealed Kavanaugh's name when he was nominated to the court.
"As Brett's college freshman roommate, I would have expected to be interviewed if a background check was looking for evidence of poor college behaviour".
Kavanaugh penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal Thursday evening saying, "Going forward, you can count on me to be the same kind of judge and person I have been for my entire 28-year legal career: hardworking, even-keeled, open-minded, independent and dedicated to the constitution and the public good".
Roche has previously characterized Kavanaugh as a heavy drinker, first speaking out in an article published by the New Yorker last week containing allegations that Kavanaugh thrust his exposed member in a female student's face while in college. "He would come home and he was incoherent, stumbling, he would sometimes be singing, he occasionally would wear this - I think it was an old leather football helmet - and he would throw up, and then in the morning would have a lot of trouble getting out of bed".
James Roche speaks to ABC News, Oct. 4, 2018.
The Senate is set to vote to confirm Kavanaugh Saturday afternoon after a week-long FBI investigation into allegations made against him, which Ramirez implies was not thorough enough. He was appearing before senators to answer an accusation from California professor Christine Blasey Ford that he sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school in the early 1980s.
"This is not about drinking too much or even encouraging others to drink", Roche writes.
Smyth, in a letter via his attorney to the Senate Judiciary Committee, denied having any "knowledge of the party in question" or "any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh".
Melania Trump has tea with Kenya's 1st lady
First lady Melania Trump was nearly knocked down by a baby elephant on Friday while on safari in Nairobi National Park in Kenya. Later during a visit at the US embassy in Malawi, the first lady called her visit to the school an "amazing experience".
Kavanaugh also offered some information about Roche that was redacted from a transcript of the interview, after he was asked what reason Roche might have to lie about him.
"Many, many people saw what I saw". "I believe her, because it matches the same story I heard thirty-five years ago, although the two of us have never talked". "I thought Dr. Ford's testimony was very compelling but I don't know her".
Either Judge Kavanaugh's inability to acknowledge the possibility of becoming unconscious at times during excessive drinking, or his refusal to accept that he may have been intoxicated while in the room with Dr. Ford, should disqualify him from a position on the Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh told the investigators that Roche had a bitter dispute with their third roommate, Dave White, which he said he himself had tried to stay out of.
Immediately after President Trump nominated Judge Kavanaugh in July, hundreds of Yale law students, alumni and faculty signed a petition claiming the nomination presented an "emergency. for our safety".
Senate Democrats say the investigation was incomplete and may have been limited by the White House.
Pittard's letter also references a New Yorker article published Wednesday that quotes Yale classmates who were never contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
