Hillary Clinton disgraced herself once again.
The former Presidential candidate jumped back into the political arena.
And she instantly regretted telling this big lie.
Democrats Smear Brett Kavanaugh
Senator Kamala Harris smeared Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
She tweeted out a video of him speaking during the hearing.
But Harris edited the video to change what he said.
Harris claimed Kavanaugh called birth control “abortion-inducing drugs.”
Kavanaugh was talking about how one party in a case had defined birth control.
In this case, Kavanaugh was citing Priests for Life’s views.
Harris told such a big lie that even left-wing outlets such as Politifact and the Washington Post called her out.
Hillary Clinton did not care.
She picked up on Harris’s lie and ran with it.
Hillary Clinton Repeats A Lie
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.
Kavanaugh didn’t use that term because he misunderstands the basic science of birth control—the fact that birth control prevents fertilization of eggs in the first place. He used that term because it’s a dog whistle to the extreme right.
When Kavanaugh called birth control “abortion-inducing drugs,” he made it clear that safe and legal abortion isn’t the only fundamental reproductive right at grave risk if he is confirmed. Access to birth control is, too.

Hillary Clinton’s Real Goal
Hillary Clinton knew her tweet was a lie.
She did not care.
Fox News Brit Hume tweeted:
It seems she waited until this claim about Kavanaugh had been thoroughly fact-checked and shown to be false before repeating it.

Clinton was rallying the base.
Democrats need women to turn out in massive numbers in November.
Every poll shows Democrats are leading with women.
Democrats are counting on women voters to flock to the polls.
Why Abortion Matters To Democrats
Abortion motivates their base.
Hillary is helping to bring back the “war on women” lie that Barack Obama pushed in 2012.
Liberals treat Roe v. Wade as their Holy Grail.
If Democrats convince their voters that abortion is on the line in November, it could power a Democrat sweep.
If Democrats seize power, then Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer run Congress.
That is bad news for Donald Trump.
A recent poll found 78 percent of Democrat voters want to see Trump impeached.
Pelosi and Schumer are keeping quiet about impeachment for now.
They know if they talk about it, Republicans will turn out in force to protect Trump.
But if Democrats win the election, Pelosi and Schumer will act to satisfy their base.
And that means impeaching the President.
That’s why Hillary lied in her tweet.
She wanted to stoke the base ahead of the midterms.
