The image was seared, of course, at the 1991 hearings in which then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas faced sexual harassment allegations from his former employee Anita Hill.
Kavanaugh is scheduled to appear before Senate Judiciary Committee to present his case.
Women across the country expressed gratitude on Thursday as they watched Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testify publicly that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her years ago.
Ford 's emotionally-charged testimony concluded with her recounting details of her alleged assault and providing lawmakers insight into why she chose to come forward.
"There will be a vote tomorrow morning", Sen.
"I'm really upset that they knew about this in August and never told anybody", Graham said.
Lawyers for Ford say they have submitted sworn affidavits to the committee from four people who say she told them that Kavanaugh had assaulted her in high school. It's unclear if Kavanaugh has the 50 votes needed to open debate on the Senate floor for the confirmation process.

Sometimes showing anger, other times fighting back tears, the conservative jurist launched a bristling attack on the "national disgrace" of his treatment by Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. But if the allegations are not investigated at all and Kavanaugh wins his seat, his stint on the Supreme Court will be forever marred by the darkest of clouds looming over his nomination. "In approximately 1982, I became the victim of one of these "gang" or "train" rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present", Swetnick alleged.
Others said they believed Kavanaugh had been assaulted, but that it had likely been by someone else and that she had simply mistaken their identity. Her courage has already changed other people's lives. "It's very compelling and emotional for her obviously, and I think anybody who's watching it's got to feel the same way", Sen.
Mr Kavanaugh said part of the reason for the allegations is anger by some about Mr Trump and the 2016 United States presidential election, and out of revenge on "behalf of the Clintons". Dianne Feinstein of California, asked how she could be sure that Kavanaugh was the attacker, Ford said, "The same way I'm sure I'm talking to you right now".
Today, Mitchell is chief of the Special Victims Division, overseeing 50 prosecutors and a staff of 70.
The allegations resonate deeply in Maryland, where Kavanaugh and Ford attended separate private prep schools.
