Debra Katz, the attorney representing Christine Blasey Ford, contradicted a claim Ford made in her initial letter accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape.

In her letter to Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Ford said that there were four other people besides herself present at the party where she claims Kavanaugh held her down and attempted to force himself on her.

“The assault occurred in a suburban Maryland area home at a gathering that included me and four others,” Ford wrote to Feinstein, according to a copy of the letter obtained by CNN.

Ford also said in her account to The Washington Post that “there were four boys at the party” and “two in the room” where she was allegedly assaulted.

On CNN Monday morning, Ford’s lawyer provided a different account of how many people were present at the party.


Katz told anchor Alisyn Camerota that in addition to the four boys, there was also another girl who attended the party.

“She says that there were four guys there, these are high school students, as was she. There were four guys there. Were there any girls there that day?” Camerota asked.

“Yes, there was another girl at this party, yes,” Katz replied.

Katz said her client has not tried to reach out to any of the other partygoers to see if they will corroborate her account.
