  • A 2015 clip of Brett Kavanaugh making a joke about the elite
    Maryland high school he attended has resurfaced at an
    inconvenient time for the Supreme Court nominee. 
  • Kavanaugh faces allegations of sexually assaulting a woman
    along with the help of a friend when they were all teenagers at a
    high school party.

A 2015 clip of Judge Brett Kavanaugh making a joke about the
elite Maryland high school he attended has resurfaced at an
inconvenient time for the Supreme Court nominee. 

Kavanaugh currently faces allegations of sexually assaulting a
woman when they were both teenagers with the help of one of his
friends from school.

The woman, Christine Blasey Ford, alleges Kavanaugh attempted to
force himself onto her at a party in the early 1980s. Kavanaugh’s
friend,
Mark Judge
, is accused of being his accomplice in the alleged
act. 

Kavanaugh and Judge both attended Georgetown Prep, one of the top
high schools for boys in the DC area, and graduated in
1983. 

While delivering remarks at the Columbus School of Law in March
2015, Kavanaugh made a jocular reference to his alma mater: “We
had a good saying that we’ve held firm to to this day as the dean
was reminding me before the talk, which is what happens at
Georgetown Prep stays at Georgetown Prep. That’s been a good
thing for all of us.”

Both Kavanaugh and Judge have both vehemently denied Ford’s
allegations, which could derail Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court
nomination. 

Kavanaugh and Ford have been invited to testify on the alleged
incident before the Senate Judiciary Committee next Monday.
Kavanaugh has accepted the invitation but Republicans on Tuesday
said Ford had yet to respond. 

Judge on Tuesday issued a statement claiming he had no memory of
the alleged assault and
said he did not wish to testify
, rejecting calls from Senate
Democrats for him to do so. 

Judge is the author of two memoirs, “Wasted” and “God and Man at
Georgetown Prep.” In both,
he details the drinking and debauchery he took part in while at
Prep.
