At the beginning of his opening remarks, Kavanaugh said that he had spent Wednesday afternoon and evening writing his statement, and that nobody else had seen it prior to Thursday's hearing.
An anonymous letter arrived at Senator Cory Gardner's office on Saturday accusing Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of yet another incident of sexual misconduct. "She could feel that this was upon her and very sensibly decided the best thing to do at point was to come at this head on and be forthright and follow through on what she started".
Ford, in her testimony, is due to make clear she has no uncertainty about the identity of her alleged attacker, referring to Kavanaugh as "the boy who sexually assaulted me". "Being pushed into the room, you say you don't know quite by whom, but that it was Brett Kavanaugh that covered your mouth to prevent you from screaming, and then you escaped", Feinstein said to Ford on Thursday.
Of the consequences of speaking out, Ford said her "greatest fears have been realised" adding "my family have been the targets of harassment and death threats".
"I don't have all the answers, and I don't remember as much as I would like to", Ford said. Thomas was accused of sexual harassment by Anita Hill, and has a lot of similarities to Kavanaugh's hearings.

In the email, the Tesla delivery manager noted that cars will be driven to buyers by a Customer Experience Professional. This stems from great demand for the Model 3, which was reported to have sold over 17,800 units in August alone.
Kavanaugh has denied Ford's allegations.
In the days leading up to the hearing, President Donald Trump stood behind his nominee, describing him on Twitter as a "fine man, with an impeccable reputation".
"To my colleagues, I say that winning at all costs is too high a cost".
A third woman, Julie Swetnick, told the Senate committee that Mr Kavauaugh was present in 1982 when she was gang-raped, though she does not say he was one of the rapists.
While Republicans can advance Kavanaugh's nomination without any Democratic support, because they only control the chamber 51-49, Kavanaugh's supporters can only lose one GOP and still advance his nomination. I understand that when he testifies, Judge Kavanaugh is going to cite his Catholic faith as a shield to claim these attacks never happened.
