Fox News reporter Doug McKelway shared a story on Wednesday detailing a personal interaction with Debra Katz that he says occurred in the 1990s.

According to his claim, Katz had him pulled from a story when she realized that he was going to ask substantive questions.

McKelway noted that the lawsuit involved racial discrimination and that he felt it was “weak” like a “shakedown” and had been filed on a Friday in order to push it to a settlement.

McKelway claimed that Katz, upon realizing that he intended to ask challenging questions, quickly removed her own microphone and contacted his news director, who then allegedly pulled him from the story.

Katz, who is currently representing Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford, also has connections to the “resistance” against President Donald Trump and her firm represented more recent Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick in a sexual harassment lawsuit about a decade ago.
