According to Yahoo! and The Independent:

Ford testified that:

I did not want to tell my parents that I, at age 15, was in a house without any parents present, drinking beer with boys.

but the article also says:

Ms Ford was asked if she had been drinking that night.

“Not at all,” she said.

Is it true that she testified that she was drinking beer with boys and that she was not drinking?

  • @DavePhD: Note that document is not really a "transcript"; it is written testimony that Ford (apparently) submitted in advance of the Sep. 27 hearing. (You'll observe it is dated Sep. 26.) I don't know whether she read that statement verbatim at the hearing. Sep 27, 2018 at 20:38

No, when she said "Not at all" she was answering the question:

Do you recall prior to getting there — so I’m — I’m only talking about up to the gathering — had you had anything to drink?
