Handwritten note on Kavanaugh, Ford hearing room table: 'Good luck, Dr. Ford'

Handwritten note on Kavanaugh, Ford hearing room table: 'Good luck, Dr. Ford'

On Thursday morning, that same committee heard from Ford who she said was "100%" certain Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers in the 1980s.

Blasey Ford also described receiving an outpouring of public support from people "in every state of this country" - as well as death threats and online tormenting that have forced her and her family to move out of their house. After being repeatedly asked about the circumstances of the polygraph test - when she took it, where she took it, who had recommended the tester - Ford's lawyers interjected to say that they had paid for the test, "as is routine". NBC adds that "The writer of the letter provided no names but said the alleged victim was still traumatized and had chose to remain anonymous herself".

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley defended Kavanaugh and blamed Democrats for not disclosing the accusations earlier.

Kavanaugh is a darling of the conservative right in America but his path to the supreme court has been hit by a series of sexual assault allegations from three different women. Kavanaugh did not agree to request an FBI investigation despite repeated calls for one from Democratic senators during the hearing.

During his hearing, lawmakers asked Kavanaugh multiple times whether he believed an FBI investigation into the allegations would be prudent.

A GoFundMe page to support Ford and pay for her security and legal expenses quickly doubled its fundraising total after it was mentioned during the hearing.

The first vote of Brett Kavanaugh comes Friday morning.

While Republican senators depicted her testimony as part of a partisan attack orchestrated by Democrats, they - and Kavanaugh - were careful not to attack Ford personally.

The nearly nine hours of intensely emotional testimony came against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and assault and had millions of Americans riveted to their TV screens and smartphones.

Kavanaugh testified Thursday to the Senate Judiciary Committee over an allegation of sexual assault when he was in high school.

If Kavanaugh's nomination is favorably advanced to the full Senate, this will be followed by an expected procedural vote on the Senate floor on Saturday.

Durbin was forceful in his assertion that Mark Judge, whom Ford alleges was also present and participated in the accused assault, should provide testimony of his own before the committee. She said Trump thought Kavanaugh's testimony was "powerful, it was riveting and it was honest". He told Kavanaugh that he hopes the nominee ends up on the Supreme Court, saying, "that's exactly where you should be". Kavanaugh sidestepped the question and deferred the decision to the committee.

President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

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.
