Kavanaugh’s Former College Roommate Speaks Out on CNN: ‘I Knew He Was Lying’


Jamie Roche, a former college roommate of Brett Kavanaugh‘s, spoke to CNN’s Anderson Cooper tonight and told him he believes the Supreme Court nominee lied during his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

He told Cooper he knows Debbie Ramirez and believes there is “zero chance that she is making up this story.”

Regarding the comments Kavanaugh made, Roche said, “When Brett started saying things about his drinking and his use of certain words, sexually-oriented words, I knew he was lying because he was my roommate.”

He talked about Kavanaugh’s drinking and told Cooper, “My recollection of my experience with him was that he was drunk frequently. That it wasn’t drunk to the point of having trouble getting up every month or two. It was frequently.”

At one point Cooper asked him if he had spoken to the FBI and Roche said, “I’ve never been contacted about Brett by the FBI ever.”
