Just days after Donald Trump authorized the FBI to expand its investigation of Brett Kavanaugh, the White House sent the FBI's report to the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday with the belief that the Senate would vote to confirm the Supreme Court nominee. But I can say that he lied under oath.
Kavanaugh has denied those allegations and others that have been lodged against him.
At one point Cooper asked him if he had spoken to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Roche said, "I've never been contacted about Brett by the Federal Bureau of Investigation ever".
Several former Yale classmates and friend of both Kavanaugh and Ramirez were outraged that they had not been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation despite claiming to have evidence for the probe.
"As Brett's roommate, I'm in a singular position, at least of the people who are willing to talk, to say, 'Listen, I saw him do this stuff that he said under oath that he didn't do", Roche said.
"An FBI supplemental background investigation that did not include an interview of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford - nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony - can not be called an investigation", the lawyers said. "He would come home and he was incoherent, stumbling, he would sometimes be singing, he occasionally would wear this - I think it was an old leather football helmet - and he would throw up, and then in the morning would have a lot of trouble getting out of bed".
Meanwhile late on Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell set a crucial threshold vote on Kavanaugh's nomination for Friday.
According to The New York Times, the Federal Bureau of Investigation reached out to 10 people and interviewed nine as part of its probe into Kavanaugh's past.
Roche told CNN his memory of Kavanaugh is that "he was on the far edge of this - he was notably heavier in his drinking than other people".
On September 21, two days before The New Yorker went live with the allegations made by accuser Deborah Ramirez, that same acquaintance texted Charlton in all-caps about the admission.
Roche said he believes that Kavanaugh lied outright when he testified at last Thursday's Senate Judiciary Committe hearing to investigate the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford, who accuses the judicial nominee of attempting to rape her in 1982, when they were both in high school. Roche also specifically contests parts of Kavanaugh's testimony where he feels he was untruthful, like his description of the terms "boofing" and "Devil's Triangle".
Kavanaugh said it was a drinking game with "three glasses in a triangle". I know this because I heard Brett and his friends using these terms on multiple occasions. I am grateful for each and every one of you.
"You can't lie your way onto the Supreme Court". "If I were looking to understand the facts, then I would look for people who had firsthand information about it and I'd try and determine what they know and didn't know, and that hasn't happened".
Roche wrote that he does not know if Kavanaugh attacked Ford in high school or exposed himself to Ramirez in college, "But I can say that he lied under oath". "I thought Dr. Ford's testimony was very compelling but I don't know her".
