The protest was strategically timed to take place on the same day that Professor Blasey-Ford - who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, and Kavanaugh himself testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Judge jumped on the bed, and the second time they toppled over, so that Kavanaugh was no longer on top of her, she said. Ford mostly stuck to her prepared remarks, while Kavanaugh's statement was markedly different than prepared written testimony submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Thursday's hearing comes as two other named individuals have levied allegations against Kavanaugh. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) asked her Thursday.

"What is the strongest memory you have, the strongest memory of the incident, something you can not forget?"

"Indelible in the hippocampus of the nation is the power of Christine Blasey Ford's testimony", Philip Gourevitch tweeted as it was happening. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., Ford said that what stands out about the incident is "the uproarious laughter" between Kavanaugh and Judge during the assault. She looked down again.

"You've never forgotten that laughter?"

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.

"And you were the object of the laughter?"

For weeks, Kavanaugh testified, some Democrats were "lying in wait" with Ford's allegation, ready to use it "only if you couldn't take me out on the merits".

Quotes, reaction to Cosby's sentence of 3-10 years in prison
Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby was sentenced to time behind bars on September 25, 2018, and his reaction to the news was shocking. The state prison system has geriatric inmates, and most of their prisons are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

"I remember being hooked up to a machine, being placed onto my body, and being asked a lot of questions, and crying a lot", she said. "We're still talking through those issues and I'm optimistic we'll get to confirmation", said Cornyn. He told at least one senator that it may have been a case of mistaken identity.

The Democrats questioned Ford on their own, while Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and other Republicans gave their questioning time of Ford to sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell of Maricopa County, Arizona.

Her account, delivered in a soft and sometimes-halting voice, came as the Judiciary panel began an extraordinary session that Republicans hope will let them salvage Kavanaugh's chances of joining the high court.

In her first questions, Mitchell repeatedly used the word "correction" when going through a series of minor clarifications in Ford's letters and comments.

Ford was seated at a table in the packed hearing room flanked by her lawyers, facing a bank of senators.
