‘What a joke!’ Kavanaugh classmate gives bizarre double-speak account of ‘aggressive’ Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh’s college roommate gave a confusing account of the Supreme Court nominee’s “belligerent and aggressive” behavior when drunk over three decades ago.

Jamie Roche told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he never saw Kavanaugh “behave aggressively toward women,” but also said he completely believes Deborah Ramirez, the woman accusing Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her at a party when they were in college.

“You say also that he, and I’m quoting you, ‘became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk.’ Do you have any specific examples? I’m not asking for dates but just anything you remember, how do you mean belligerent and aggressive?” Cooper asked Wednesday on “Anderson Cooper 360.”

“I want to provide a specific example and I really can’t and I should be honest about that,” Roche replied.

“When I say belligerent, I mean belligerent in demeanor. Yelling loudly. People tell him to be quiet, tell him to shut up,” he added.  “I didn’t see him personally ever hit anybody or ever behave aggressively toward women. When I say aggressive, I’m speaking more in courage than in expression.”

“When I first heard about this, I did call friends that I knew that knew both of us and spent time with Brett, both freshman year and then after, and I did hear stories about times when he was physically violent,” Roche continued. “Destructive. Those are not on the record. They’re not my stories to tell, but they made me feel like my memories of Brett were accurate.”

Roche also told Cooper that he felt Kavanaugh lied during his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“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,” Roche said.

He backed the claims made by Ramirez and believes there is “zero chance that she is making up this story.”

Roche had a hard time sitting still and looking at the camera during the awkward interview.

And while the FBI reportedly reached out to Ramirez during their investigation, Roche claimed no one has attempted to speak with him.

“I’ve never been contacted about Brett by the FBI ever,” he told Cooper.

Roche’s not-so-earth-shattering insights, more proof of the left’s smear campaign against Kavanaugh, were shredded on Twitter where he was called out as just someone with an axe to grind.
