Questions arose after Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee was spotted handing notes to the lawyer of Christine Blasey Ford amid Senate testimony Thursday.

Footage of Jackson Lee handing a number of documents to Ford’s attorney Michael Bromwich prompted speculation as to what she could possibly be giving him.

Jackson Lee’s press office later released a statement responding to the matter.

“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,” the congresswoman’s press office noted, according to NBC affiliate
