Fox News' Judge Jeanine Goes on Unhinged Rant About Kavanaugh — And Spews Lies That Were Already Debunked by Her Own Network

Pirro is brazenly lying.


The Republican controlled Senate Judiciary Committee is continuing on its bullheaded mission to rush through the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court. Their callous approach to the charges of Kavanaugh's alleged sexual assault on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford could not even be slowed down by the resignation of the committee's spokesperson due to charges of sexual harassment. Seriously, you can't make this stuff up.

However, Fox News can make up phony allegations against Dr. Ford to malign her character and introduce demonstrably false speculation as to her motives for coming forward.

Ford's parents – follow me – Ford's parents had a foreclosure claim against them and their home in 1996, in Maryland. Ford's parents lost their home. The judge ruled against them. The judge was a woman. The judge was Brett Kavanaugh's mother.”

There is no other way to put this than that Pirro is brazenly lying. The only part of those remarks that is true is that Kavanaugh's mother was a judge. Follow me: Ford's parents did not lose their home. And Kavanaugh's mother did not rule against them. In fact, the foreclosure was dismissed by Kavanaugh's mother after Ford's parents and the bank agreed …read more
