Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., questioned embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's attitude toward his behavior in high school on Tuesday after a clip of him addressing his time at Georgetown Preparatory School circulated on social media.

"I can't imagine any parent accepting this view," Warren tweeted. "Is this really what America wants in its next Supreme Court Justice?"

During a 2015 speech at Columbus Law School at the Catholic University of America, Kavanaugh joked about his high school experience, saying, “What happens at Georgetown Prep, stays at Georgetown Prep.” In the snippet, first unearthed by MSNBC, Kavanaugh was referring to three of his longtime friends from Georgetown Prep who also graduated from Columbus Law School.

His time at the elite Maryland school has been called into question after Christine Blasey Ford accused him of drunkenly forcing himself on her during a house party in the 1980s when she was 15 and he was 17. Kavanaugh has "categorically and unequivocally" denied the claim.

Kavanaugh will answer questions about the alleged sexual misconduct in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee next Monday during a public session. Ford is yet to accept the panel's invitation to also appear.
