Hillary Clinton Tweets Debunked Hit Job On Brett Kavanaugh

There's only one problem - it was a lie.

"The claim that Kavanaugh called birth control “abortion-inducing” has been deemed not accurate by multiple fact-checking organizations, including PolitiFact. (RELATED: Fact Check: Did Kavanaugh Suggest That Contraceptives Are Abortion-Inducing Drugs?)

“ was citing the definition of the religious group Priests for Life” when he referred to contraceptives as “abortion-inducing,” PolitiFact explained. “He has not expressed his personal view.”

The claim originated from an edited video clip used by California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris. Harris’ clip showed Kavanaugh stating, “Filling out the form would make complicit in the provision of the abortion-inducing drugs that they were — as a religious matter, objected to.”

Kavanaugh’s full statement, however, was, “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, objecting to.”

Sen. Harris’ clip seemed to intentionally leave out the “they said,” which made clear that Kavanaugh was characterizing someone else’s argument rather than his own."
