An eleventh hour attempt by Democrats to undermine the confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh hinges on a letter alleging sexual misconduct – but his classmate is speaking out about the claims.

“It’s just absolutely nuts”

Mark Judge spoke to the Weekly Standard about the accusations after he says he learned that he was named in the letter through an interview with Ronan Farrow.

“It’s just absolutely nuts,” Judge said. “I never saw Brett act that way.”

The allegations were made by an anonymous woman who claims that Kavanaugh held her down and “attempted to force himself on her” during a party when he was in high school at Georgetown Preparatory School, in Bethesda, Maryland.

The letter was revealed by Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who turned over the accusations to the FBI, without revealing who the accuser was.

Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegations.

“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation,” he said in a statement. “I did not do this back in high school or at any time.”

“I don’t remember any of that stuff…”

Judge said that he didn’t remember anything like the allegations made against Kavanaugh happening when they were classmates.

He added that while he remembered “rough-housing” happening with other males, it did not happen with girls, in his memory.

“I can’t. I can recall a lot of rough-housing with guys. It was an all-boys school, we would rough-house with each other,” he said to the Weekly Standard.

“I don’t remember any of that stuff going on with girls,” Judge concluded.

Here’s the Fox News report on the accusations:

65 women who have known Kavanaugh for several decades signed a letter vouching for his good character in a letter to the Judiciary Committee.

“We are women who have known Brett Kavanaugh for more than 35 years and knew him while he attended high school between 1979 and 1983. For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect,” the letter said.

“We strongly believe it is important to convey this information to the Committee at this time,” it concluded.
