Top 20 News Photos of 2018 That Will Blow Your Mind
Christine Blasey Ford is sworn in before testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill, on September 27, 2018, in Washington, D.C.
A professor at Palo Alto University and a research psychologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Ford accused the then–Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during a party in 1982 when they were high-school students in suburban Maryland.
In prepared remarks, Ford said, “I don’t have all the answers, and I don’t remember as much as I would like to. But the details about that night that bring me here today are ones I will never forget. They have been seared into my memory and have haunted me episodically as an adult.”
