During Thursday’s Washington hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Senator Richard Blumenthal somehow decided it was his place to lecture Kavanaugh about being honest and having courage.
The Gateway Pundit writes that Senator Blumenthal started his questioning of Kavanaugh by saying, “Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus,” which means “false in one thing, false in everything.”
Did he really say that? Yeah, he did.
The ironic part, which Senator Tom Cotton reminded America about on Twitter, is that Democratic Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal faked his service in the Vietnam War… and he lied, claiming that he had been the captain of Harvard’s swim team.
Senator Blumenthal really has no business saying anything about honesty or courage to Kavanaugh.
“The core of why we are here today really is credibility,” Blumenthal stated during the hearing.
The Supreme Court nominee wasn’t having it. He stated, “The core of why we’re here is an allegation for which the four witnesses present have all said that it didn’t happen.”
Republican Senator Tom Cotton exposed Blumenthal for the liar he is via Twitter.
“Senator Blumenthal lied for years about serving in Vietnam, which is all you need to know about his courage & honesty. Maybe he should reconsider before questioning Judge Kavanaugh’s credibility,” Tom Cotton wrote in the tweet.
Other users had something to say about it, too.
