"I am terrified. I am here because I believe it is my civic duty", she said.
On the Fox Business Network, Stuart Varney appeared frustrated by Rachel Mitchell, the sex crimes prosecutor brought in by the all-male GOP members of the Senate panel to question Ford. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Senate Democrats, and offered that the FBI already investigated Kavanaugh and found nothing.
He lashed out at the committee over the time it has taken to convene the hearing after Christine Blasey Ford's allegation first emerged.
When Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., pressed him to request an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, Kavanaugh said he'd do whatever the committee wished and repeatedly refused to change that position.
Mr Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge who has always been eyed for the Supreme Court, has repeatedly denied all the allegations, saying he had never heard of the latest accuser and calling her accusations "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".
On Tuesday morning, a false allegation of rape launched against Judge Brett Kavanaugh was phoned into the office of Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), which passed it on to the Judiciary Committee.
She said she saw efforts by "Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be "gang raped" in a side room or bedroom by a "train" of numerous boys".
On the eve of her testimony, an examination taken by Ford on August 7 was released, showing that she passed a polygraph test over the sexual assault allegations. The memory - and Kavanaugh's laughter during the act - was "locked" in her brain, she said.
France's President Took On President Trump's Policies In His UN Speech
Wednesday's meeting highlighted a rift between the United States and its European allies over the Iran nuclear deal . The US president is in the Security Council chair on Wednesday because America now holds the rotating presidency.
That left senators to decide whether the long day tipped their confirmation votes for or against Trump's nominee in a deeply partisan fight with the future of the high court and possibly control of Congress in the balance.
On Wednesday, Republicans said in the statement, they received a "more in-depth written statement from the man interviewed twice previously who believes he, not Judge Kavanuagh, had the encounter in question with Dr. Ford". Kavanaugh claims neither happened, telling MacCallum on air that he was a virgin in high school and for "many years" after that.
She says that she sent a letter detailing the allegations to Sen.
The other, Julie Swetnick, has accused Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women, among other things.
Earlier, Ford said she "agonized daily" over the decision on whether to come forward to speak about sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh. "They have haunted me [and] been seared into my memory and have been hard to beat episodically as an adult", she said through tears'. I recall saying that the boy who assaulted me could someday be on the U.S. Supreme Court and spoke a bit about his background. "We sometimes seem intent on stripping people of their humanity so that we might more easily disregard or defame them and put them through the grinder that our politics requires". They're hoping for a final Senate roll call next week, seating Kavanaugh on the court for the October start of its new term.
Kavanaugh defended himself this week in a TV interview.
"We have lit a match", said retiring Sen. Yet, in the end, he won confirmation, by a vote of 52-48, the closest Supreme Court vote in more than a century.
