The school's students, however, have been notably more outspoken, with The Harvard Crimson reporting that hundreds of law school students walked out of class during Thursday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in a show of support for Kavanaugh's accusers. As of Tuesday, Kavanaugh is still listed as the lecturer for a course titled "The Supreme Court Since 2005", which is slated to be taught next semester.

The dean of the Yale Law School on Friday joined the American Bar Association in calling for an FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee votes on his confirmation. Protesters were urging the senator to vote against confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Mark Judge, the other man Christine Blasey Ford said sexually assaulted her with Kavanugh, wrote in the yearbook "Bart, have you boofed yet?"

The editorial doesn't attempt to parse whether Kavanaugh's or Ford's testimony was more credible.

Though Kavanaugh did admit at one point that he may have "had too many" beers on occasion, he denied "blacking out" and vehemently denies the sexual abuse. By the end of the day, Flake had, adding a condition to his promise to vote for Kavanaugh.

Ford testified that Kavanaugh and a friend pulled her into a bedroom at a house party when they were teenagers.

And, as previously noted by the Department of Defense's former special counsel and present New York University Law Professor Ryan Goodman, almost one dozen former classmates of Kavanaugh have described the Supreme Court nominee as a heavy drinker who was frequently "very drunk". He'd do so, Flake said, if the vote was delayed a week so the FBI could investigate "credible allegations" against the nominee.

She wrote, "Had [Kavanaugh] simply told the Judiciary Committee that he partied in high school/college, sometimes to excess - but still denied the assault - these commentaries would be net neutral".

'Brett was getting tapped in and he was incredibly drunk, in a ridiculous outfit and had to come up to me and sing a silly song, ' she said. "I can't imagine being Dr. Ford and seeing someone who sexually assaulted you screaming before the entire country".

"How'd you find me?" he asked the reporter.

"On Monday, I stood in front of your office", Archila, co-executive director of the nonprofit Center for Popular Democracy Action, told Flake.

"I've done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate", he said.

"It's not about, 'Oh, we're very leftist, '" Ghazala said.

But in his testimony on Thursday, Kavanaugh offered alternative explanations for the items on his page. "I can't pinpoint anything to say this is what caused me to come today to say let's postpone".

"Kavanaugh came straight out of the gate weird in his opening statement - not just denying all her allegations but nearly breaking down while attempting to paint a folksy image of his time in high school", Oliver said.

"Jeff's trying his best to bring the country together and vote the best way he knows how", said Graham, who was on his way to meet with Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell to discuss the arrangement.
