  4. As a result of a "claim", Democratic presidential candidates former HUD Secretary Julián Castro, former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, and U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kamala Harris of California called for Kavanaugh's impeachment. Now it has been revealed that the claim was *COMPLETELY UNFOUNDED*. Castro, Warren, O'Rourke and Harris all called for Kavanaugh's without any facts. *Understand how dangerous these people are .

  5. You know what ? I don’t care if he even did do that in high school or college 😆
    That’s right I said it

    .. I don’t even care aaahh hahahaha

  6. Choosing people of character who are above reproach to serve in our highest judicial system would defeat the purpose. Fish rots from the head down.

  7. These people are all monsters. Every single last one of them. Psychopathic monsters. Red and blue psychopathic monsters. Choose your monster.
    Hah hah hah hah! I voted for the red psychopathic monster and the red psychopathic monster won! I am so happy about things now. My life will be so much better now that the red psychopathic monsters are running things and the blue psychopathic monsters aren't.

  8. REMEMBER, the last VICTIM was a real winner: A College professor, Christine Ford, can’t remember the year her “assault” happened, but can remember that she was fifteen. Chances are she won’t be joining the Math Department any time soon at Palo Alto University. Does it get any worse than this?

  9. 1. It's gross what they did to Kavanaugh. He even gave his $600k in crowdfunding donations to 3 different charities(like Trump does with his salary) while Ford raked in over $1 million via GoFundMe. Not a word from the broken media.

    2. Meanwhile Cory Booker benefited from the story he told about when he sexually assaulted one of his classmates in high school. Not a word from the media. Meh, he's a black Democrat so it happens right?

    3. ALL OF THE WITNESSES Christine Blasey Ford named said it never happened. Since then another accuser, Munro, has admitted that she made up her story. She's under criminal investigation by the FBI and DOJ. Her attorney was Michael Avenatti, the hero of the Dems, lol. Not a word from the broken media about any of that.

    4. Maryland Police are still open to filing charges on Kavanaugh. They just need Ford to come in and make a statement. Still no word from Ford after 30+ years. Reportedly she's waiting for her donations to hit $2 million. Same crap media.

  10. Pfffft… the liberals are just worried because they believe Kavanaugh will try to overturn or modify Roe v. Wade. So what do they do… attack.

  11. He's gonna end up having his hands and pingas chopped off if he gets impeached. There needs to be solid evidence for that to happen though.

    😂🔪👐🍆

  12. Commiecrat Ruth Bader Ginsburg is teetering on the edge so the Commiecrats are desperate because their judicial despotism is coming to an end….that is all.
    NBC = Communist/globalist agenda propaganda, scouring the country daily for any Cultural Marxism agenda racially divisive story they can dig up or refabricate to fit their anti-American narrative.

  13. Washington Post fact-checker gives Harris four Pinocchios

    https://thehill.com/homenews/media/406023-wapost-fact-checker-gives-harris-four-pinocchios

    By Joe Concha – 09/11/18

    Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler awarded Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) four Pinocchios in a Tuesday column,

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/09/11/did-brett-kavanaugh-offer-dog-whistle-abortion-foes/?noredirect=on
    writing that she had selectively edited a video of Supreme Court
    nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s comments about “abortion-inducing drugs” to
    argue he is against birth control.

    Kessler wrote that in a tweet highlighting Kavanaugh’s comments, Harris did not make it clear that
    Kavanaugh was actually reiterating the plaintiff’s position in a 2013
    court case. Instead, he wrote, she made it seem that Kavanaugh was
    offering his own opinion.

    “The issue at hand is Kavanaugh’s
    reference to ‘abortion-inducing drugs,’” Kessler wrote. “A plain reading
    of his sentence, with its reference to 'they said,' suggests that he is
    merely reflecting the plaintiffs’ argument.”

    He said Harris had omitted the words “they said” in a widely circulated tweet that said
    Kavanaugh’s comments were a “dog whistle for going after birth control.”

    “Harris’s decision to snip those crucial words from her first post on the video
    is certainly troubling,” the Washington Post fact-checker wrote.

    In a second tweet sent out by Harris a day later, Harris did provide the full context of Kavanaugh’s remarks, Kessler wrote.

    “But there was no acknowledgment by Harris that the original tweet was
    misleading,” he added. “She earns Four Pinocchios — and her fellow
    Democrats should drop this talking point.”

    A four-Pinocchio rating is the most egregious one can receive from the Post fact-checker.

    In the first tweet sent out on Sept. 7 2019, Harris, a member of the Judiciary
    Committee overseeing Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, said Kavanaugh
    was nominated “for the purpose of taking away a woman’s constitutionally
    protected right to make her own health care decisions.”

    Kavanaugh chooses his words very carefully, and this is a dog whistle for going
    after birth control. He was nominated for the purpose of taking away a
    woman’s constitutionally protected right to make her own health care
    decisions. Make no mistake – this is about punishing women. pic.twitter.com/zkBjXzIvQI

    — Kamala Harris (@SenKamalaHarris) September 7, 2018

    The tweet has been “liked” more than 30,000 times and retweeted more than 15,000 times. 

    After conservatives blasted the tweet as taking Kavanaugh’s remarks out
    of context, Harris replied to her own tweet one day later by including a
    video showing the nominee's comments in full while not backing off her
    original assertion. 

    “There's no question that he uncritically
    used the term ‘abortion-inducing drugs,’ which is a dog whistle term
    used by extreme anti-choice groups to describe birth control," she wrote.

    The fact-check is the second in two days to cite Harris, with Politifact also rating her comments about Kavanaugh during last week's confirmation hearings as “false.”

  16. The victim don't remember anything happening,that mean it was made up. Leave this man alone this is not America. Democrats stop all this.

  17. Love it time to get those impeachment papers ready
    and this sticks it to the Republican GOP and Donald Trump i'm down for it
    good day to be a Democrat

  18. Christine ford's Own friend said she lied about any party…. if her own friends call her a liar. … not much more to say than that…

  19. Until the Fake News Media gets sued or a law enacted to stop knowing false information, nothing will change as far as false and defamatory information being published.

  20. They never have a police report but they always have a book to sell smh the fake news is out of control #Trump2020 investigate the news media they be lying to much

  21. Whether it can be proven or not. His display of conduct before Congress made it clear he does not have the demeanor nor the character to hold the position he has. We have lost the high standards and lowered the bar of what we should expect from the Judges we put in place.

  22. Lmfao lol 😂lol fake news making their supporters look even more
    Libtarded than they really are , can liberals say "like" attract "likes , (Dirt attracts Dirt ) unbelievable scary 😱

  23. This is all a fake accusation and Kavanaugh needs to take legal action. It's all rumour type nonsense and now the NYT's is walking it back as well. This has something to do with what Ford's lawyer said recently where it brought in to question whether Ford's accusations were politically motivated. I call for the removal of the Democrats Vote the quack Democrats out of office 2020 Give them a wake up call. Make them change their party's ways and ideas.

  24. Beer swilling Kavanaugh and trump SCOTUS justice patsy is chomping at the bit
    to get his grubby little hands on this Roe v Wade issue. This punk sexual pervert
    can’t wait to serve his master.

  25. This is total BS! Another hit job by the Democrats through media that’s complicit. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves for reporting this! Trying to take care of a good man because you’re losing power! Shame on you!

  26. I've read many of the comments listed below. I was surprised at how many have Kavanaugh guilty of a crime that there is no evidence of. These people are quick to throw the first stone.

  27. NBC is just another arm of the left wing propoganda machine. Pathetic and hateful. Divisive to the country, and that's how they like it.
