The most memorable moments from Christine Blasey Ford's testimony

Trump says his past accusers influence thinking on Kavanaugh

Ford alleges Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his Georgetown Preparatory School classmate Mark Judge locked her in a bedroom at a party in 1982.

Attorney Avenatti tweeted a sworn testimony from the third accuser Swetnick.

"But you have replaced advice and consent with search and destroy", he continued. "There should be no vote in the Senate".

In the opening statement, Kavanaugh denied Ford's allegations and choked up when discussing his daughter telling him that they should pray for her, among several other times.

Before the Senate hearing on Thursday, Ford had never appeared on camera, and was only depicted in news media reports with a grainy photo lifted from the internet.

According to NBC, the latest complaint says the assault took place whilst Judge Kavanaugh was drunk. "I am innocent of this charge". "Apart from the assault itself, these past couple of weeks have been the hardest of my life", Ford said, before forcefully denying that she came forward for political reasons.

"I am terrified", she said, her voice often quavering.

She wrote that she was incapacitated, perhaps drugged with Quaaludes, and was "unable to fight off the boys raping me".

Wolves Continue To Seek Return For Jimmy Butler Beyond What Teams Offering
He had previously said that the Brooklyn Nets , New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers were at the top of his list. Head coach Tom Thibodeau is probably Butler's biggest fan in the world and has coached him on two different teams.

Some conservative scholars have suggested Blasey Ford's accusation was a case of mistaken identity, but Blasey Ford, 51, insisted she has a "100 percent" level of certainty that it was Kavanaugh who assaulted her. "I was pushed onto the bed and Brett got on top of me. That people are not going to believe them". "I tried to yell for help".

Ford said she later allowed Eshoo's office to forward the letter and a request for confidentiality to Sen. Trump said in a tweet. "This is a circus".

She is the third woman to have accused Kavanaugh with sexual assault.

He said his confirmation process has become "a national disgrace" and a "character assassination". A shocking new accusation has been made against the 53-year-old Supreme Court nominee about a violent sexual incident that happened in 1998. Senators were set to hear from two witnesses: Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault during a high school gathering in the early 1980s. Rachel Mitchell, a veteran sex crimes prosecutor from Arizona who asked all questions for the committee's all-male GOP senators, seemed to elicit no significant inconsistencies in her testimony. "I don't know what they told Ms. Ford, but we were willing to go to California".

"It's up to the president of the United States and his failure to ask for an FBI investigation amounts to a cover-up", he said.

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) listens to Senator Dianna Feinstein (D-CA) Speak at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC.

"I intend to vote for you and I hope everybody who is fair-minded will", he told Kavanaugh. Nancy French, a conservative Christian writer, cried as she watched Ford in a dark room in her home with her dogs.
