Senator Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., asked Ford to share her strongest memory of the incident, the one thing she cannot forget.

Ford replied: "Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter, the laugh — the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense."

Leahy asked: "You've never forgotten that laughter. You've never forgotten them laughing at you?"

Ford explained that Kavanaugh and Judge were laughing with each other.

"I was, you know, underneath one of them while the two laughed, two friend — two friends having a really good time with one another," she described.

In a separate exchange with Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., Ford again recalled the strongest details she remembers from the night:

"The stairwell, the living room, the bedroom, the bed on the right side of the room as you walk into the room. There was a bed to the right. The bathroom in close proximity, the laughter, the uproarious laughter, and the multiple attempts to escape and the final ability to do so," she said.
