Christine Blasey Ford gave an emotional testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday as she participated in hours of questioning from both Democrats and career prosecutor Rachel Mitchell.

Between the lines: The 11 Republican men on the committee delegated their questions to a female prosecutor, while their Democratic counterparts used the bulk of their time to praise Ford’s courage.
