Ex-WH Lawyer: Clarence Thomas Movie Is Left's Effort to 'Rewrite History'

The HBO movie premiering this weekend on the Clarence Thomas hearings 25 years ago is an attempt by the left "to rewrite history," former White House attorney Mark Paoletta told Newsmax TV on Thursday.

"When the curtain came down on those hearings, the left went about trying to rewrite history," Paoletta told "The Hard Line" host Ed Berliner. "This is what this movie is about: It's the left's continuing efforts to rewrite history."

Paoletta served in the White House Counsel's Office under President George H.W. Bush during the Thomas confirmation hearings in 1991.

The movie — "Confirmation" — will be shown Saturday on HBO. It features actors Wendell Pierce as Thomas and Kerry Washington as Anita Hill.

"It's unfortunate that we're still arguing, because at the end of those hearings, and the American people got to watch them, they believed Clarence Thomas 2-1," Paoletta told Berliner. "When those hearings happened, everyone was riveted to their TV sets and watched those hearings.

"They watched Justice Thomas testify, they watched Anita Hill testify, they watched all those other witnesses over the weekend testify — and it was very clear that Anita Hill's story never added up.

"That's why Thomas was confirmed," Paoletta said, noting the 52-48 vote by the Democratic-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee. "Clarence Thomas has been a threat to the left since he's gotten on the court and before that."
