(Gateway Pundit) – Accuser Christine Ford arrived to the Dirksen building just after 10:00 AM ET.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) began the hearing by delivering opening statements.
Ford delivered her opening statement with a shaky voice and said that Kavanaugh’s assault against her drastically altered her life.
As she concluded her opening remarks, she giggled and asked for “caffeine.”

"After reading my opening statement, I anticipate needing some caffeine." —Christine Ford
If you anticipated that, why not have coffee before sitting down? Is it possibly so your statement will be televised on its own, without any pesky questions afterward? #KavanaughHearings
