Yale Colleague Says Kavanaugh Is Lying About His College Virginity Defense




Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh‘s former Yale colleague claimed on Twitter that Kavanaugh was lying when he told Fox News on Monday that he was a virgin through high school and college, reports Law&Crime.

“I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone,” Kavanaugh told Fox News when pushing back against the multiple sexual assault allegations leveled against him this month. “I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter … The girls from the schools I went to, and I, were friends.”

“Through all these years that were in question, you were a virgin?” Fox News host Martha MacCallum asked.




“That’s correct,” Kavanaugh replied, adding that he did not have sex until “many years after” college. (Neither of the two accusations regarding Kavanaugh involves sexual intercourse.)

Stephen Kantrowitz, now a history professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, tweeted the following hours after Kavanaugh’s interview aired on Fox News:

Perhaps Brett Kavanaugh was a virgin for many years after high school. But he claimed otherwise in a conversation with me during our freshman year in Lawrance Hall at Yale, in the living room of my suite.




Professor Kantrowitz emailed the following statement to Law&Crime:

I felt compelled to reveal a private conversation I had with a classmate in our freshman year at Yale because of the tremendous importance of honesty and integrity to serving as a Justice of the Supreme Court. My conversation with Brett Kavanaugh raises doubt about a statement he made on September 24 on national television. Contrary to his assertion that he remained a virgin “for many years” after high school, during our freshman year he described losing his virginity. I remember this distinctly because it was the first time I had had such a conversation with an acquaintance who was not a friend. I have no first-hand knowledge of any of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, but I thought this conversation was relevant as it goes to the question of his truthfulness.

I will not be commenting further. Thank you.
