  • Christine Blasey Ford testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill on Sept. 27 2018

Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies during the second day of his US Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing to be an Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, September 5, 2018. He choked back tears while saying that his 10-year-old daughter, in saying her evening prayers recently, told Kavanaugh's wife Ashley, "we should pray for the woman".

He called the process "a circus", and said he would "not be intimidated into withdrawing" his Supreme Court bid.

Ford said she was sure that Kavanaugh was the person who attacked her."With what degree of certainty do you believe Brett Kavanaugh assaulted you?"

"This has destroyed my family and my good name", he said, describing a conspiracy on the left that he said included anger toward President Donald Trump and "revenge on behalf of the Clintons".

"We believe her, we support her, and we thank her for her vast bravery and patriotism", NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue said in a statement. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh.

In his opening remarks, Kavanaugh shouted at the Senate Judiciary Committee-particularly at Democrats, who he implied stoked negative reactions after his nomination hearings several weeks ago.

Lisa Murkowski. An occasional party renegade, she has not said how she will vote.

The tactic appeared to backfire as Mitchell, who had to break up her questioning into five-minute increments, did not trip up Ford over any significant details and got bogged down in peripheral issues. ABC News reports the author might be Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).

Trump said that if lawmakers had moved faster, "you wouldn't be talking about it right now, which is frankly what I would have preferred".

Ford said that though they went to different high schools, she had been friendly with a classmate of Kavanaugh's and attended a number of parties that the future judge also attended. So, we wondered, could her blue suit - though a thoroughly modern, dark navy version - be at least a subtle nod to Hill, who paved the way for Ford and so many other victims of harassment and assault?

"No", Ford responded. She said she didn't have her driver's license at the time.

Even Mr Trump, who fiercely defends his nominee, said he would be watching and was "open to changing my mind".

"God helps us all as Republicans", he told reporters.

Ramirez claims that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her and shoved his penis in her face while they played a drinking game in a dorm room along with other classmates at Yale University. She began by expressing sympathy for Ford, who'd said she was "terrified" to testify. John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, said the proceedings reminded him of the McCarthy hearings into Communist sympathisers.

According to his prepared testimony, Kavanaugh plans to tell senators that he "said and did things in high school that make me cringe now" - but that he "never did anything remotely resembling what Dr. Ford describes".
