*As of this posting, the Senate Judiciary Committee – which is taking testimony from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford about being sexually assaulted by SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh – is in recess for lunch.
One take away that stands out is Dr. Ford speaking on remembering being laughed at by Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge during the attack.
Here’s more from People:
As Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused President Donald Trump‘s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, she said that Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge‘s laughter stands out in her recollections of the alleged attack.
When Sen. Patrick Leahy asked for her strongest memory of the incident, Ford, 51, replied, “Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter. The uproarious laughter between the two and their having fun at my expense.”
“They were laughing with each other,” she continued. “I was underneath one of them [Kavanaugh] while the two [Kavanaugh and Judge] laughed. Two friends having a really good time with one another.”
Ford, a research psychologist and professor at Palo Alto University, claims that Kavanaugh, 53, sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the 1980s, where he allegedly pinned her down to a bed, groped her and tried to remove her clothes while Judge was in the room. Both Kavanaugh and Judge have denied the allegations.
