“We had a good saying that we’ve held firm to to this day as the dean was reminding me before the talk,” Kavanaugh said.
“What happens at Georgetown Prep stays at Georgetown Prep.”
“That’s been a good thing for all of us, I think,” the judge joked.
Kavanaugh has been accused of the attempted rape of a classmate at a high school house party in the 1980s. At the time, Kavanaugh was 17 and attended Georgetown Prep, a prestigious private school for boys in Bethesda, Maryland. His accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a research psychologist, was 15 and attended Holton Arms School, a private all-girls academy also located in Bethesda.
Since Ford’s account was made public last month, two more women – Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick – have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct during his time at Yale.
The Senate has delayed a vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation pending an FBI investigation, which the Bureau has until Friday to complete.
