Kavanaugh Responds To NYT Report On 'Hurtful' High School Yearbook Comment

In all, Renate is mentioned 14 times throughout the yearbook, and not just by Kavanaugh.

One of the listed items is "Renate Alumnus", a phrase reporters at the New York Times found is referenced multiple times in the yearbook by boys. It is a reference to Renate Schroeder, then a student at a nearby Catholic girls' school.

CNN has since covered the story, making sure to cast it as Kavanaugh being "hurtful" to a woman: "New York Times: Woman who signed letter supporting Kavanaugh calls yearbook revelation "hurtful".

"I learned about these yearbook pages only a few days ago", she told the Times.

Kavanaugh's page listed him as "treasurer of the Keg City Club" and a "Renate Alumnus".

"I don't know what "Renate Alumnus" actually means", Dolphin told the Times, adding: "I can't begin to comprehend what goes through the minds of 17-year-old boys who write such things, but the insinuation is awful, hurtful and simply untrue". "But what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone in high school or at any time in my life". "I don't know if they changed things or not", Kavanaugh replied, adding that he wasn't going to sit and contest the decades-old comments. Ford says Judge watched Kavanaugh attack her at a high school party in the early 1980s and that he leaped on top of her and Kavanaugh, allowing her to escape.

"They were very disrespectful, at least verbally, with Renate", said former Georgetown Prep student Sean Hagan, the Times reports.

Kavanaugh and his friends used Dolphin's first name, Renate, as code to describe what two of Kavanaugh's classmates said was an inside joke that referenced their claims of sexual encounters with Dolphin.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took to Fox News on Monday night to defend himself from allegations of sexual assault when he was in high school, claiming that he was a virgin "for many years" after leaving Yale University.

"I think Brett must have me confused with someone else, because I never kissed him", Dolphin said.

Jennifer Earl is an SEO editor for Fox News. Both incidents allegedly happened while he was drunk.

In Wasted, Judge refers to a "Bart O'Kavanaugh" who was passed out from drinking too much and threw up in a vehicle. But he told the Senate Judiciary Committee that they do not reveal evidence of his own misconduct.

BuzzFeed News reports that Dolphin explained she got the information about the September 14 letter "from a friend of ours from high school years", then she quickly hung up.
