10 Instances: Did Brett Kavanaugh Plagiarize Parts Of His Speech From Clarence Thomas? (VIDEO)
DID KAVANAUGH PLAGIARIZE? In 1991, before becoming confirmed as an Associate Justice to the Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas was accused of sexual harassment by Anita Hill, a former colleague and friend who worked with the Thomas at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
During several days of testimony, Ms. Hill detailed the harassment and abuse she alleged to have suffered at the hands of Mr. Thomas. Thomas, meanwhile, categorically denied all the allegations of impropriety.
Cut to 2018. President Trump’s nominee for the high court, Brett Kavanaugh has ALSO been accused by several women of sexual misconduct and rape. In his opening remarks to the Senate Judiciary committee, Judge Kavanaugh said, under oath and under penalty of perjury, that he wrote his address entirely himself and that no one had seen it other than one former law clerk.
HOWEVER — there are at least 10 instances of both the exact same words being used and near exact words being used in Judge Kavanaugh’s prepared remarks compared to remarks given by Judge Clarence Thomas, 16 years earlier.
Does this rise to the level of plagiarism? You decide.
