The lawyers representing Christine Blasey Ford clarified Thursday that they paid for the polygraph test she took regarding her allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh - after she initially testified she wasn't sure who did.
Ford, who appeared anxious and nervous throughout, gave an account of her memories from the night of the alleged attack, with her voice frequently breaking as she spoke.
One of Jacobson's close friends was sexually assaulted in high school, an experience the friend said would scar her for life. While another boy watched, she said, Kavanaugh tried to pull her clothes off and covered her mouth when she tried to scream.
NBC News reports: "The hearing will begin with opening statements from the leaders of the committee, which won't have an imposed time limit".
She said in a sworn statement released Wednesday that she holds "active clearances" -which require background investigations - for her work at the Treasury Department, the U.S. Mint and the Internal Revenue Service. The hearing was a rollercoaster of emotion, with Democrats taking every opportunity to praise Ford's courage in coming forward, while Mitchell delivered the tougher questioning, challenging her on a number of issues, including the circumstances surrounding her polygraph test and her fear of flying. There may be several breaks.
"I am innocent of this charge", Kavanaugh said, according to his written opening statement.
Women like Ford are the ones who have mostly raced to protect Brett Kavanaugh - not to mention Donald Trump - because admitting that there was something rotten in their culture would implicate them, too.
Two additional women have come forward with accusations against Kavanaugh, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick. "I am no one's pawn", she testified, before going on to detail her allegation that Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her at a gathering more than three decades ago. She looked terrified even before she said she was.

The case will be presented to a grand jury, which will decide whether to indict Guyger for manslaughter or a different charge. When she put her key in the apartment door, which was unlocked and slightly ajar, it opened, the affidavit said.
"I just wanted to let you know I'm very sorry", Mitchell said. But I am not watching because I can not bear the disappointment that I think will follow: "Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation as a Supreme Court Justice", Georgetown law student Desiree Luckey, 27, said in an email.
Durbin was forceful in his assertion that Mark Judge, whom Ford alleges was also present and participated in the accused assault, should provide testimony of his own before the committee.
This time, it could be the four Democratic committee members who were prosecutors or attorneys general who could ask Kavanaugh the toughest questions.
Christine Blasey Ford testifies to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018.
Kavanaugh called Ford's allegation "completely false".
"If you expect me to believe that Brett Kavanaugh was a serial rapist when he was sophomore, junior in high school, and he stopped and never did it again, you expect me to believe that any reasonable person would go to 10 parties where people were drugged and raped and not tell anybody it, I don't believe it".
