Hillary Clinton Peddled a Debunked Claim About Kavanaugh on Twitter. The Response Was Brutal.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tweeted out a ‘fake news’ story Wednesday regarding President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh that had already been debunked by fact checkers earlier in the week.

“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,” Clinton tweeted first in a six-tweet series.

Clinton’s claim that Kavanaugh had referred to birth-control pills as “abortion-inducing drugs” during his confirmation hearing stems from a highly edited video that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) tweeted earlier in the week.

The fact-checkers at both the Washington Post and PolitiFact have already deemed Harris’ claim to be a flat-out lie.

“There was no acknowledgment by Harris that the original tweet was misleading. She earns Four Pinocchios — and her fellow Democrats should drop this talking point,” the Washington Post wrote.

PolitiFact wrote that Kavanaugh “has not expressed his personal view” and rated Harris’ statement as “False.”

After Clinton’s smear job, a flood of tweets poured in from fact checkers and reporters quickly trying to correct the record:

This isn’t the first time since her stunning election defeat that Clinton has attempted to spread fake news.

In her book “What Happened,” Clinton blamed her Wisconsin loss on a voter ID law that she alleged helped “reduce turnout by 200,000 votes” in the state.

The study that Clinton cited was blasted by independent fact-checkers as false.

For someone who blames ‘fake news’ as the reason why she lost the 2016 presidential election, Clinton sure does have a habit of spreading it.
