Christine Blasey Ford on Thursday gave an emotional recollection during her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the "uproarious laughter" she heard during the moment her alleged attackers cornered her in a room.
Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) asked Ford to recall her "strongest memory" from the alleged assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. She has also claimed his friend, Mark Judge, stood beside them as the attack unfolded, laughing.
"What is the strongest memory you have?" Leahy asked. "Something you cannot forget?"
"Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter, the uproarious laughter between the two and they’re having fun at my expense," Ford said, her voice strained and emotional.
"You’ve never forgotten that laughter?" Leahy asked. "Never forgotten them laughing at you?"
"I was underneath one of them while the two laughed," Ford said, seemingly tearing up. "Two friends having a really good time with one another."
