11:28 AM update:
Grassley calls for a 15 minute break. Republican prosecutor Mitchell has asked several poignant questions, including one that led to an admission of an embellishment of the story on the part of Ford.
In Ford’s testimony, she claimed that members of the “social gathering” were laughing and talking downstairs during the alleged ordeal, but then admitted that she could not hear them. When asked how it was possibly that she knew that they were talking and laughing, Ford admitted that she “assumed” that that was the case.
11:06 AM update:
Grassley is giving Judiciary Committee members five minutes each: Five minutes for a Republican member to ask questions, then five minutes for a Democrat member. Republicans are using prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who will be interrupted every five minutes for softball questions from Democrats.
10:53: AM update:
Opening statements are finished, and prosecutor Rachel Mitchell has the floor to ask Ford questions.
10:38 AM update:
Noticeably emotional, Ford is now recounting the details of her alleged sexual encounter with Kavanaugh.
She said that either Kavanaugh or his friend Mark Judge pushed her into a bedroom at a house party, before Kavanaugh, in a drunken state, grinded on her and attempted to remove her one-piece bathing suit.
She has not given any new details that were not provided in her letter to Feinstein.
According to Ford, she wanted a “second front door” when her home was remodeled, which brought up the story about the alleged assault. She does not remember naming Kavanaugh as the assailant, but that her husband does.
10:33 AM update:
Ford is sworn by Grassley. She is now under oath, preparing to give her opening statement.
10:20 AM update:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is making her opening remarks. She welcomed Ford to the hearing, and is now addressing the prevalence of sexual assaults in America, and calling the process for addressing such allegations “wanting.”
“Our institutions have not progressed in how they treat women who come forward,” she said.
10:00 AM update:
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is making opening remarks, during which he blasted Democrats for obstructing the investigation into Ford’s allegations after her confidential letter to Sen Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was leaked to the media. Ford, looking tense, is waiting for Grassley to finish his opening remarks to speak publicly for the first time.
Big League Politics will be bringing live coverage of today’s testimony by Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Democrat Lawmaker: Send Trump to War Crimes Tribunal for Recommending Hydroxychloroquine
Trump derangement syndrome hits a new low.
A Democrat state lawmaker from the state of Ohio has suggested that she will be recommending President Donald Trump to The Hague for war crimes because he suggested hydroxychloroquine could be used to treat coronavirus.
“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow,” Ohio State Rep. Tavia Galonski wrote in a tweet on Sunday night. “Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.”

President Donald Trump has come under fire from the fake news media for trying to get medicines and treatments not approved by the FDA into the hands of individuals afflicted with coronavirus.
Trump has been a proponent of bypassing FDA regulations in certain instances to get medicine to the sick since he signed the “Right to Try Act” into law in 2018.
“People who are terminally ill should not have to go from country to country to seek a cure — I want to give them a chance right here at home,” Trump said in May 2018 before he signed the law allowing experimental medications and treatments to be used in certain instances.
A study of doctors throughout the world has found that hydroxychloroquine is the “most effective therapy” for coronavirus. The study, conducted by the health care polling firm Sermo, found that hydroxychloroquine is underprescribed in the US in comparison to other countries.
“Outside the US, hydroxychloroquine was equally used for diagnosed patients with mild to severe symptoms whereas in the US it was most commonly used for high risk diagnosed patients,” the survey found.
Trump is repeating what the doctors are saying regarding coronavirus, but the Democrats are desperate to stifle possible solutions if it means scoring political points.
“I am a fan of that [drug] and we’ll see what happens. I have seen things that are impressive. We’ll see. We’ll know soon. When you get to safety, this is prescribed for many years for people to combat malaria, which was a big problem,” Trump said about hydroxychloroquine.
“Everybody knows the level of the negatives and positives, but I will say that I am positive when it comes to particularly one of these drugs. We’ll see how it works. I am not saying it will but I think that people may be surprised. It is a game-changer. We’ll know very soon,” the president added.
Galonski has not currently followed through on her threat to report President Trump for war crimes because of his advocacy for hydroxychloroquine.
