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.
