After telling Ford that she seemed to have given a clear picture of the alleged assault, Mitchell shifted her focus to the last two months, since Ford first told her representative in the House about her claim.

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.

"The women who have come forward should have the freedom to pursue legal remedy, and our leaders have the obligation to do everything they can to end this epidemic of sexual violence", he said in a statement. He has denied the accusations.

Ford was probed for more than four hours by senators and prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, an expert in investigating sex crimes who was selected by Republicans.

Mark Judge was Kavanaugh's classmate at the all-male Catholic private school, Georgetown Preparatory.

She said it was her attackers' laughs. "Two friends having a really good time with one another", she replied.

She can never get very far down those lines of questioning however. The network reports that Senate Judiciary Committee investigators placed a call to Kavanaugh about the accusations on September 25 and he denied the encounter.

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.

The Hawaii senator also sent a fundraising email while the hearing was in session, prompting criticism that she was trying to use Ford's testimony to help her re-election campaign.
