Hillary Clinton has joined the chorus of Democrats complaining about Judge Kavanaugh but she doesn’t even have her facts straight. In fact, she is spreading falsehoods which have even been called out by the liberal media.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Clinton Spreads ‘Four Pinocchio,’ ‘False’ Claim About Kavanaugh
Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton repeated a claim about Brett Kavanaugh that multiple fact-checkers have ruled is false.
A ThinkProgress writer first claimed on Twitter that during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing, Kavanaugh “seems to refer to birth control as ‘abortion-inducing drugs.'” That claim was picked up by Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.), who shared an edited video of the interaction on Twitter and claimed that “this is a dog whistle for going after birth control.”
But that claim was ruled “False” by PolitiFact, who pointed out that in context, Kavanauagh was clearly just summarizing the position of a litigant who appeared before him in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.
“It was a technical matter of filing out a form in that case. But they said filling out the form would make them complicit in the provision of the abortion-inducing drugs that they were, as a religious matter, objected to,” Kavanaugh said at the Senate hearing.
Here’s her tweet:
I want to be sure we're all clear about something that Brett Kavanaugh said in his confirmation hearings last week. He referred to birth-control pills as "abortion-inducing drugs." That set off a lot of alarm bells for me, and it should for you, too.
