Here are a few of those amazing images:

Sound waves from NYSE trading post TVs resound in unison at higher than usual decibel levels as traders watched Christine Blasey Ford testify. Could decipher nearly every word of the hearing anywhere I walked, competing only with ringing phones at times. #KavanaughHearings pic.twitter.com/6UREse8hjW

Kavanaugh is up for a vacant seat in the U.S. Supreme Court. The judge appeared to have before the committee, with a vote in his favor likely, but news of Ford’s allegations sent the nomination process into chaos.
His future with the Supreme Court depends on whether or not Republican senators will decline to vote for him in light of the allegations against him.
