Hillary Gets Ripped To Pieces For Spreading Debunked Smear Against Kavanaugh In Nasty Tweetstorm

Hillary Clinton got ripped to pieces on Wednesday for spreading a debunked smear against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in a nasty tweetstorm.

Proving once again how detached she is from facts and reality, Clinton launched into a diatribe on Twitter and falsely implied that Kavanaugh believes birth control causes abortions.

Here are the tweets from Clinton:

As reported by The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti, the false claim that Kavanaugh believes birth control pills are “abortion-inducing drugs” was first peddled last week by Sen. Kamala Harris.

Harris, likely eying a 2020 presidential run, rudely attacked Kavanaugh last week during his confirmation before the Senate Judiciary Committee over the Department of Health and Human Services birth control mandate.

Kavanaugh explained that in the brief filed in the case filed against the Obamacare rule — which required employers to provide birth control free of cost to their employees —  the plaintiffs argued that they were forced to provide “abortion-inducing” drugs that went against their religious faith.

Here’s Kavanaugh’s full quote:

“That was a group that was being forced to provide a certain kind of health coverage over their religious objection to their employees, and under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the question was first, was this a substantial burden on the religious exercise? And it seemed to me quite clearly it was,” Kavanaugh said. “It was a technical matter of filling out a form, in that case with — that — 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.”

While Kavanaugh was clearly stating what the plaintiff’s in the case argued in their brief, Harris used the quote to advance scare tactics and claim that the Supreme Court nominee wanted to ban women from being able to receive birth control.

Despite efforts for Clinton to spread Harris’ lie, even the left-leaning Washington Post’s PolitiFact published a report saying Kavanaugh never said he wanted to ban women from taking birth control. The fact-checker gave Harris four Pinocchio’s, meaning her claim was utterly false and she lied.

Here’s PolitiFact’s conclusion on Harris’ claim:

Harris tweeted a clip in which Kavanaugh 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.”

In Harris’ tweet, Kavanaugh appears to define contraception as abortion-inducing. But the video failed to include a crucial qualifier: “They said.” In fact, he was citing the definition of the religious group Priests for Life. He has not expressed his personal view.

We rate this statement False.

While Harris has been under fire for spreading fake news about Kavanaugh, Clinton’s bizarre decision to spread the debunked theory also drew scorn from a few notable Never-Trumpers:

Still upset over her embarrassing loss in the 2016 presidential election, Clinton has been publicly weighing in more and more on political issues.

Unfortunately for Clinton, she waited several days to weigh in on the issue, as Harris’ lie has been thoroughly debunked.
