Republicans have rebuffed calls for a full investigation into the alleged sexual assault. Dianne Feinstein's decision not to inform others about the allegations after Ford reached out to her confidentially earlier this year. Justice Thomas now sits on the bench while Kavanaugh's future has not been decided.

He vowed to continue his effort to join the high court, to which President Donald Trump nominated him in July. All the three allegations have been denied by the Supreme Court nominee.

Ford's testimony elicited tears from some members of the audience. "Over the course of this week - like I think a lot of American families - my family, a lot of it on email, has been discussing this and disagreeing and arguing about it", Wallace said on Fox News just minutes before the scheduled start of Thursday's hearing. This is what terrified me the most and has had the most lasting impact on my life.
