Sequelae, norepinephrine, epinephrine: Christine Blasey Ford uses science to describe her assault

Enlarge this image

Republicans praised Ford's bravery in coming forward, but many of them said her account would not affect their support for Kavanaugh.

It was Ford's telling the committee she now has two front doors at her home - a decision she said she made because of the lasting trauma of the alleged assault - that convinced Kathleen Pierman, 66, who watched the testimony at home.

The outgoing senator was a friend and fan of Kavanaugh's until the sexual misconduct allegations became public. I do not recall the events described by Dr. Ford in her testimony. The American Bar Association sent a letter to committee chairman Chuck Grassley Thursday night arguing that the vote should be halted until the FBI can complete its investigation.

Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations and says he never sexually assaulted anyone.

Whether or not Kavanaugh is confirmed by the full Senate likely hinges on three Senators: West Virginia's Joe Manchin, a Democrat, and Maine's Susan Collins, and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, both of whom are Republicans.

"While some may argue that a different standard should apply regarding the Senate's advice and consent responsibilities, I believe that the constitution's provisions of fairness and due process apply here as well", Flake said. Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin asked Ford.

The hearing kicks off at 10 AM ET and Ford is first up.

Dr Ford claims Judge Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her at a party in 1982.

No matter what the committee recommends, majority leader Mitch McConnell can still call for a vote in the Senate to confirm Kavanaugh. He told Kavanaugh that he hopes the nominee ends up on the Supreme Court, saying, "that's exactly where you should be". Viewing the hearing from their desks, some aides expressed concerns that Ford appeared highly credible, though others noted there were still gaps in her decades-old story.

The bitter fight over Kavanaugh's nomination is unfolding just weeks before the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to seize majority control of Congress from the Republicans. Meanwhile Ford, testified that she was "100%" certain Kavanaugh attacked her.

He also took issue with the notion of waiting for an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh.

He accused Democrats further of trying to use the allegations against Kavanaugh to delay the confirmation process and ultimately prevent President Donald Trump from getting Kavanaugh on the court.
