Kavanaugh’s Former Classmate Refuses To Testify

The Hill reports:

The former classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was said to have been in the room when Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted a woman decades ago, has told senators he will not testify at next week’s hearing.

Mark Judge wrote in a brief letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) that he “did not ask to be involved in this matter nor did anyone ask me to be involved.”

Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) on Tuesday called on the Judiciary Committee to subpoena Judge, which would force him to appear in front of the committee. “You can count on the fact that that letter, his response, is going to be entered into the record by someone, and that needs to be tested as well,” Jones said on CNN’s “Situation Room.”
