Christine Blasey Ford says she remembers

"And meanwhile, the Democrats are landing haymakers", Wallace added, noting that Blasey Ford had recalled the "laughter" of Kavanaugh when he allegedly sexually assaulted her.

Ford's attorneys have repeatedly noted Ford's medical records as a way to corroborate her story.

The hotline is operated by RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) in partnership with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country. Ford said she felt Kavanaugh might accidentally kill her.

Another senator, Patrick Leahy, asked her what her most vivid memory of the assault was.

"They go into the back room and talk to each other and laugh at what they're getting away with", Trump said.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, a member of both the committee and Republican leadership, has said Ford should be treated "the same way my daughters would be treated in the event they were making an accusation, or my mother, or my wife".

Ford told the committee that she chose to testify because she felt it was her civic duty to do so.

On Wednesday, a third woman came forward with explosive allegations, saying she witnessed sexually abusive behaviour by Kavanaugh when he was a teenager.

Ford recounted how an inebriated Kavanaugh groped her and put his hands over her mouth when she tried to yell for help at a party when the two were in high school.

"I want to apologize to both of you for the treatment you've received", he said.

He said Ford was "perhaps in the process" of ruining Kavanaugh's career and undermining the integrity of the Supreme Court.

In advance of Thursday's hearing, Trump emphatically defended Kavanaugh but signaled there was potential yet for to change his mind about his own nominee.

One goal is to emphasize inconsistencies in his statements so far and make him appear nervous, said a Democratic aide who described the plan on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to discuss it publicly.

California psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford finished her testimony Thursday afternoon, about four hours after the hearing began.

Then Kavanaugh strode into the committee room, arranged his nameplate, and with anger on his face started to testify with a statement he said he had shown only one other person.

During the free-wheeling news conference, Mr Trump continued to lash out at Democrats and label the allegations against Mr Kavanaugh politically motivated. Democrats have meanwhile said Kavanaugh should withdraw his nomination and called for an FBI investigation into the allegations. "Senate Republican leaders are aiming to hold a full Senate floor vote on the nomination by early next week, with the hopes that he would be confirmed and sworn in as a justice soon after the high court's new term opens on Monday". "I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes (a sedative) or something similar placed in what I was drinking", she said.

"I don't think we can disregard Christine Blasey Ford and the seriousness of this", he said.

While Republicans want to move forward, they are mindful of the fallout if they do not take the accusations seriously.

"Brett's assault on me drastically altered my life", Ford told the panel.

"We have lit a match", he said from the Senate floor.
