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

"For me, it is not that people don't drink in high school, it's, is he telling the truth?" she said. "Was there ever a time when you drank so much that you couldn't remember what happened or part of what happened the night before?"

"I like beer", Kavanaugh said.

"So you're saying there's never been a case where you drank so much that you didn't remember what happened the night before or part of what happened".

You're asking about blackout. "And what I was trying to get at was that you have this incredibly convincing testimony in the morning from Dr. Ford". A moment of stunned silence.

Klobuchar: "Could you answer the question, judge?" Klobuchar asked. "That's not happened, is that your answer?"

"The point, he is, he did apologize later, publicly, to me, which I appreciate", the Minnesota Democrat told NBC's "Today." "Nor do I", he said.

She said she also thinks the Federal Bureau of Investigation should question Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the room when Kavanaugh had attacked her. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), the self-described child of an alcoholic. Noting Kavanaugh's apology, Rubin wrote: "The damage was done". This is a tough process. First District Rep. Tim Walz, the DFL candidate for governor, tweeted on Friday that Klobuchar has "been a beacon of truth, justice, and rationality".

Klobuchar, asked about the possibility of impeaching Kavanaugh if he's confirmed, said she's not even thinking about that yet, because some Republicans are still undecided on how they'll vote.

In a Fox News interview on Monday, Kavanaugh said, "Yes, there were parties". "Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes". "A question of if I black out".

Kavanaugh also grew visibly frustrated under questioning by Sen.

Earlier in the hearing, Kavanaugh said he enjoyed drinking - the legal drinking age at the time was 18-years-old - but claimed that he never went beyond social norms.

"I started my last colloquy by saying to Sen". He said Kavanaugh's testimony about drinking and the drinking age was "for context" of how Maryland high schoolers obtained beer.

Many Twitter users mocked Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh asked Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse after tacitly admitting to having vomited from too much beer drinking.

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.
