Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday laughed at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s claim that the allegations against him are a form of “revenge on behalf of the Clintons,” saying it “deserves a lot of laughter,” according to CBS News.

"This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit, fueled with apparent pent up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election. Fear that has been unfairly stoked about my political record. Revenge on behalf of the Clintons," Kavanaugh said before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, while denying the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford, who testified the same day that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the 1980s.

Clinton was asked about the judge’s claim at The Atlantic Festival in Washington.

“It deserves a lot of laughter,” she said. “I thought it was just part of the whole of his very defensive and unconvincing presentation. I told someone later, 'Boy, I tell you, they give us a lot of credit.' Thirty-six years ago we started this against Kavanaugh."

She added, "It would've had to have happened starting 36 years ago and that seems a stretch even for the vast right-wing conspiracy stories about me.”

Clinton said she found Ford “very credible,” and that "you have to ask yourself why would anybody put themselves through this if they did not believe that they had important information to convey to the senate.

"I found her presentation, I found her willingness to say I don't remember that but I remember this to be very convincing and I felt a great swell of pride that she would be willing to put herself out there under these circumstances."
