Fox News host Chris Wallace on Thursday said Christine Blasey
Ford’s emotional testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee
on allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee
Brett Kavanaugh amounted to a “disaster for Republicans.”

“This was extremely emotional, extremely raw, and extremely
credible. … This is a disaster for the Republicans,” Wallace
said.

“She obviously was traumatized by an event,” Wallace added.

His colleague, Bret Baier, said it was “a totally different
thing” to hear Ford’s testimony compared with reading about her
allegations. 

Ford alleges Kavanaugh assaulted her at a high school party when
they were teenagers, attempting to force himself on her with the
help of a friend, Mark Judge. She claims Kavanaugh covered her
mouth when she attempted to scream, and said at times that she
worried he’d accidentally kill her. 

During her opening remarks on Thursday, Ford said she was
“terrified” to be there but felt it was her “civic duty.”

Ford’s testimony elicited tears from some members of the
audience. 

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegations and was also set
to testify on Thursday.
