Warren quickly Kavanaugh comments were revealed, which is collected in the course of the allegations of sexual misconduct by Christine Blasey Ford jumped in to denounce, in the form of claims, the high court nominee drunk and forced themselves on her during a house party almost four decades.
“I can’t imagine that any of the parents tweeted the adoption of this view,” Warren. “Is this really what America wants in its next Supreme Court Justice?”
But the clip is shared by Warren, although initially unearthed by MSNBC, cuts Kavanaugh, the previous comments, indicating that he is talking about his three friends.
“I, by chance, three classmates of mine at Georgetown Prep were graduates of this law school in 1990, and are really good friends of mine,” Kavanaugh said in a recording of the entire speech, naming his friends.
“And you were good friends then and are still good friends of mine this weekend, as we he added all E-Mail,”. Then he made the “what happens at Georgetown Prep, remains in the Georgetown Prep” joke.

– Judge Brett Kavanaugh
Mark Hemingway, a writer for the conservative Weekly Standard, suggested Warren is trying to suggest Kavanaugh was admitting abusive behavior in the video, rather than a joke.
“This has zero impact on whether Kavanaugh sexually assaulted Ford, and the party of the minors, abortion, and contraception on demand is suddenly neopuritans a bit pathetic,” he tweeted.
“Like MSNBC, Sen. Warren passing to a shorter version of Kavanaugh’s video in which he makes a joke about the three” really, really good friends of mine, ” to smear him,” Oklahoma attorney Gabriel Malor tweeted.
“As we know, Warren is misleading is very comfortable leading people. Your constituents deserve better,” he added, comparing Warren Clips to a video posted by U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., the recently came under fire for the depiction of Kavanaugh as anti-women.
KAMALA HARRIS “EDITED KAVANAUGH VIDEO” MADE-FOR-TV ” QUESTIONS DRAW CONTROL
Harris, a member of the Senate judiciary Committee — which will decide whether Kavanaugh gets to the highest court in control of a life-long appointment to the nation — tweeted out the clip at the beginning of this month, the shows, Kavanaugh mention the term “abortion-inducing drugs,” a term that struck Harris as a “dog-whistle for the go after the birth.”
But the fact-checkers do not find Harris’ comment or the edited video, even from the distance. The Washington Post gave the senator out of four Pinocchios, its most striking assessment, namely, the post omitted crucial facts, such as that Kavanaugh was, in fact, to quote the terminology of the plaintiff in a 2013 court rather than stating his personal views.
Even more partisan fact-checkers like PolitiFact also found Harris’ attack was not based on the truth.
“In Harris’ tweet, Kavanaugh seems to define, to induce contraception as abortion. But the video could not zierer include a crucial qualifier: ‘she said.’ In fact, he was relying on the definition of the religious group priests for life. He has not expressed his personal view,” PolitiFact said check.
