Brett Kavanaugh is in a lot of trouble. He told blatant lies that can easily be debunked, and he even claimed that, although he did drink to get drunk in high school and college, he claims never once did he not remember the night before, or wake up to his friends saying, “dude, do you know what you did last night?” This would make anyone who has ever been to a kegger or a house party give some serious side eye because, duh, when you drink as a young person, you are learning limits, and in order to learn them, they have to be surpassed.
He also lied about the legal drinking age, claiming that it was legal for him to drink in high school, despite law raising the legal age to 21 before he reached high school. He can claim he simply did not remember, but if one thing is certain, a young person knows the exact date that they are allowed to go to a bar for the first time.
Now, he has an FBI investigation on his hands, and as if that wasn’t bad enough, he also has authorities in Maryland, where Christine Blasey Ford claims the assault took place in 1982, saying that they will open an investigation into the claim if the alleged victim asks for one.
According to Fox News:
“Authorities in Maryland on Friday said they were prepared to conduct a state-level criminal investigation into sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh — provided that a victim comes forward.”
The report continued:
“The disclosure by Montgomery County Police Chief J. Thomas Manger and Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy came Friday, the same day that President Trump ordered the FBI to conduct a limited “supplemental” investigation.”
“But Manger and McCarthy noted that prosecution was unlikely in Maryland because authorities would have to apply the law that existed at the time of the offense, not the law that exists now.”

McCarthy and Manger wrote:
“For example, in 1982, assault and attempted rape were both misdemeanors and subject to a one-year statute of limitations.”
“The Montgomery County Police Department and the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office stand ready to investigate any sexual assault allegation from any victim where the incident occurred in our jurisdiction.”
“To date, there have been no criminal reports filed with the Montgomery County Department of Police that would lead to the initiation of any criminal investigation related to Judge Kavanaugh.”

According to the Baltimore Sun:
“A group of state legislators from the county on Tuesday had called on police and prosecutors to investigate allegations that Kavanaugh committed one or more sexual assaults while a high school student at Georgetown Prep in the 1980s. The lawmakers asked authorities not to wait for an alleged victim to make a complaint to them before starting an investigation.”
The police responded with the following letter:
The report states that, “In their letter Tuesday, the delegates said they were writing to ‘express our concern about the need for an investigation into recent high-profile allegations of sex assault in our county…. We believe local law enforcement has the authority to investigate allegations of crimes without need for a formal complaint, and we further believe third parties have standing to bring such complaints.'”
