Christine Blasey Ford: I’ll Never Forget ‘Uproarious Laughter’ During Assault

Psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford told Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that there was no chance that she had mistaken Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh for another man while testifying in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday. “How are you so sure that it was (Kavanaugh)?” Feinstein asked, to which Ford responded, “The same way that I’m sure that I’m talking to you right now. Basic memory functions...” Feinstein then asked, “So what you are telling us is this could not be a case of mistaken identity?” “Absolutely not,” Ford replied. She later reinforced this during her conversation with Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT). After Leahy asked her what her “strongest memory” of the assault was, Ford said it was “the uproarious laughter between the two” and how they were “having fun at my expense.” When Leahy later asked if she was “the object of the laughter,” Ford replied, “I was underneath one of them, while the two laughed. Two friends having a really good time with one another.”
