A curious thing happened on Christine Blasey Ford's way out of Congressional testimony today - when Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) handed Ford's lawyer, Michael Bromwich, a thick envelope after shaking hands.
Ford's attorneys told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday that they are representing her on a pro bono basis.
During questions from staff lawyer Rachel Mitchell as to who was paying her legal bills, Bromwich interjected "Both her counsel are doing this pro bono." Furthermore, Ford was unable to explain who paid for - or will pay for - her polygraph.
Update: According to Lee's office and reported by Houston's KHOUhttps://www.khou.com/article/news/politics/whats-in-the-envelope-rep-sheila-jackson-lee-gave-to-fords-attorney-during-kavanaugh-hearings/285-598884783, "Simply, what was passed were unopened stationery notes to counsel for Dr. Ford from women who wanted to enter the hearing room but were not allowed to enter the hearing room."
