There’s brutal and then there’s BRUTAL and this is the latter.

During a Missouri Senate debate, Democrat incumbent Claire McCaskill was busted in a bald-faced lie.

The issue of Project Veritas’ undercover videos arose during the debate. McCaskill accused Hawley of being involved in the videos and then all but demanded Hawley (the state’s AG) investigate Project Veritas.

Again, Hawley denied being involved in the videos and said, “and to accuse me of fraud, which is what Senator McCaskill did. She said that I committed fraud. That I participated in a fraud. She said that on television.

McCaskill interrupted him and said, “I didn’t say that on television.”

SPOILER: She said that on television.

“Well, it is startling that Josh Hawley would be part of fraudulently embedding somebody in my campaign. He’s the Attorney General of the state of Missouri. He’s supposed to be going after fraud, not participating in it,” she said. On television.

Watch:

And that’s what busted looks like.
