Christine Blasey Ford Testifies About Brett Kavanaugh Allegations

"The uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense".

"He began running his hands over my body and grinding into me", she said, sounding on the verge of tears. "So what you're telling us is this could not be a case of mistaken identity?" said Feinstein.

Each of the men described "in some detail" their recollection of their encounter with Ms. Blasey Ford, the GOP staff said in a memo late Wednesday, less than 12 hours before Ms. Blasey Ford is slated to testify about her memories of the assault. However, Ford said she saw his name on a list of potential nominees and thought it was her civic duty to give information, so she sent a message to her Congressional representative and an encrypted message to the Washington Post's tip line. He has been accused of sexual misconduct by three other women and has also denied those allegations.

Ford delivered prepared remarks detailing the alleged sexual assault, and then answered questions from Democrats on the committee and sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who was chosen to lead questioning for Republicans during the hearing.

Meanwhile, Republicans have a greater number of senators and time on their side.

"I don't have all the answers, and I don't remember as much as I would like to", Ford said.

He also provided the committee with detailed calendar pages listing in green-and-white squares the activities that filled his summer of 1982 when he was 17 years old - exams, movies, sports and plenty of parties.

Nominated to the Supreme Court by President Donald Trump in June, Kavanaugh is expected to push the high court further to the right.

OJ Simpson Says Bill Cosby Will Be a Target in Prison
Cliff Huxtable", Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said at a news conference, referring to Cosby's best-known role. The punishment came at the end of a two-day hearing at which the judge also declared Cosby a " sexually violent predator ".

Regarding other allegations - some of which have been anonymous - that have come to the committee since Ford came forward, Kavanaugh has called some of them "ridiculous", his supporters tell CNN. She is said to have talked about the assault during a 2012 couple's therapy session, well before Kavanaugh was a nominee for the nation's highest court. I tried to convince myself that because Brett did not rape me, I should be able to move on and just pretend that it had never happened.

On Wednesday, porn star Stormy Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, unveiled the Kavanaugh "gang rape train" allegation that he had been teasing since the beginning of the week. "I don't know what they're referring to".

Ford's allegation roiled the confirmation process for Kavanaugh, who has since been publicly accused of sexual misconduct by two other women.

He also criticized the committee's top-ranking Democrat, California Sen. He has said he will be watching the hearing and has said he could be convinced to change his mind on Judge Brett Kavanaugh, though he has continued to strongly defend him. "This is what terrified me the most and had the most lasting impact on my life".

Mr Kavanaugh has "completely" denied the claim and said he has never sexually assaulted anyone. Nothing on the calendar appears to mention Ford, who has said she was a "friendly acquaintance" of Kavanaugh's at the time.

Kavanaugh defended himself this week in a TV interview.

The Iowa Republican promised a "safe, comfortable and dignified" atmosphere Thursday as his committee hears from both.
