Is failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her political attack dog, David Brock, behind a shadow war attempting to stop Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation?
Tuesday, in the middle of the confirmation fight over Gorsuch, the liberal media released two attack pieces that accused the Supreme Court nominee of plagiarism. The articles, written by Buzzfeed and Politico, contain serious accusations that could seriously damage Gorsuch’s reputation at the worst possible time.
The only problem?
They’re total political hit pieces, and the misinformation the articles contain is being spoon-fed to liberal journalists by President Donald Trump’s political opponents. These two reports are nothing more than trash that lacks any sort of independent research.
In other words, the articles are shameful, politically motivated misdirection… which is something straight out of the Clinton playbook.
And the rumor likely connects straight back to Hillary’s most loyal political hitman, Brock, according to The National Review and other conservative political analysts.
“It’s a hatchet job, and if you take a whiff, you can likely smell David Brock nearby,” RedState reporter Jay Carusco wrote Tuesday. “The stories attempt to accuse Neil Gorsuch of plagiarism, and do so sloppily. Both the Buzzfeed piece and Politico piece are garbage, using information spoon-fed to them, to make their case instead of relying on a full examination of Gorsuch’s work.”

In fact, Carusco writes, the Politico piece even admits the truth in their article:
POLITICO did not conduct a full examination of the federal judge’s writings.
The articles bring up multiple accusations against Gorsuch — all of which multiple plagiarism experts quickly dismissed as mis-truth or flat out lies.
In fact, one of the original authors, Abigail Lawlis Kuzma, has rushed to Gorsuch’s defense. Kuzma said she does “not see an issue here.”
“These passages are factual, not analytical in nature,” Kuzma, currently a deputy attorney general in Indiana, wrote in a statement. “It would have been awkward and difficult for Judge Gorsuch to have used different language.”
The Trump administration hasn’t taken this alleged slander against Gorsuch sitting down, either.
“This false attack has been strongly refuted by highly-regarded academic experts, including those who reviewed, professionally examined, and edited Judge Gorsuch’s scholarly writings, and even the author of the main piece cited in the false attack,” said Steven Cheung, spokesman for the White House. “There is only one explanation for this baseless, last-second smear of Judge Gorsuch: those desperate to justify the unprecedented filibuster of a well-qualified and mainstream nominee to the Supreme Court.”
Translation: This attack against Gorsuch is total B.S. — and it serves as further proof the mainstream media spins everything to favor liberals.
Mistruth, deception, and media spin? That’s the favorite kind of Clinton political strategy… that is, critics say, besides simply whacking their opponents.
