Too much information, Brett Kavanaugh.
The embattled Supreme Court nominee claimed Monday he couldn’t have sexually assaulted any of his accusers because he was a virgin “many years” into college — but none of his alleged victims have made claims of rape or sexual penetration.
“I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter,” Kavanaugh said during an appearance on Fox News, sitting alongside his wife, Ashley.
“Never had sex with anyone in high school and through years in college?” host Martha MacCallum asked.
“That’s correct,” Kavanaugh responded. “Many years after, I’ll leave it at that.”
The SCOTUS-wannabe made the first-time confession while pushing back on Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that he forced himself on her while they both attended high school in Maryland in the early 1980s.
The 53-year-old conservative jurist also insinuated Ford may have confused him for someone else.
“I’m not questioning, and have not questioned, that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone in some place, but what I know is that I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone,” Kavanaugh said.
While he continued to vehemently deny the allegations against him, Kavanaugh acknowledged that there was a fair amount of drinking going on at his all-boys Maryland high school.
“The drinking age was 18, and yes, the seniors were legal and had beer there,” he said. “And yes, people might have had too many beers on occasion … I think all of us have probably done things we look back on in high school and regret or cringe a bit.”
Kavanaugh’s temperance defense may strike some as odd, since neither of his three alleged victims have accused him of rape.
Ford alleges Kavanaugh drunkenly cornered her in a room at a party, pinned her against a bed and groped her. But she says she was able to bolt out of the room after Kavanaugh’s friend, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them, sending them tumbling to the floor.
A second woman, Deborah Ramirez, came forward in a report published by The New Yorker on Sunday, in which she accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself and thrusting his penis in her face at a party at Yale University. She says she made contact with his penis as she pushed him off, but didn’t accuse him of trying to rape her.
Attorney Michael Avenetti tweeted Sunday that he represents a third woman with “credible information” that Kavanaugh engaged in sexual misconduct while in high school, but that allegation ostensibly doesn’t involve claims of rape or penetration either.
Following an unrelated hearing in a Los Angeles courthouse on Monday afternoon, Avenatti said the third accuser would be willing to take a polygraph exam if Kavanaugh agrees to do the same.
“She is 100% credible and when the American people hear from her, they will determine as I have that she is to be believed,” Avenatti told reporters.
Echoing Democratic demands, Avenatti called for an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh.
“There is no excuse for not opening an FBI investigation,” he said. "There is no rush.”
Earlier in the day, Kavanaugh issued a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) pledging to not withdraw his nomination to the Supreme Court over what he called “smears, plain and simple.”
“I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process,” Kavanaugh said. “The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out.”
Kavanaugh, 53, said he and his family have faced “vile threats of violence” but vowed to stay put and not cave to Democratic demands to rescind his nomination.
Hours earlier, President Trump told reporters at the United Nations in New York that the allegations against Kavanaugh are “totally political” and that he has his full support.
"I am with him all the way," Trump said.
Ford and Kavanaugh are expected to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
Trump questioned Ford’s allegation last week.
“I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents,” the President tweeted. “I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!”
Ford and Democrats have called for an FBI probe, but Republicans and the White House have refused.
Echoing Kavanaugh’s own denials, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) took to the Senate floor Monday afternoon and ripped the “far left” for perpetuating a “shameful smear campaign” against Trump’s Supreme Court pick.
Ford, meanwhile, issued a letter to Grassley in which she said that her and her family have been forced to move and hire private security after facing a torrent of death threats.
“While I am frightened, please know, my fear will not hold me back from testifying and you will be provided with answers to all of your questions,” Ford said. “I ask for fair and respectful treatment.”
