Senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has once again been caught in a rather significant lie.
Warren is airing a TV commercial, touting the fact that she fought against all of Donald Trump’s ambassadors, but the fact is, she did not.
The lies from Warren are slowly but surely starting to catch up with her.
She has lied about her race, she has lied about how she was treated when she was a teacher and became pregnant, and now she is lying about her Senate votes.
Listen to what Warren has to say about passing through Trump’s ambassadors…

Now, before we get into her vote, it is important to note the ambassador at the center of this interview is Gordon Sondland.
While Warren makes it sound as though Sondland came to this post with no experience, he does have extensive political background dating as far back as 2002, while also serving as a liaison during the Bush administration.
Whether or not you agree that Sondland was the right choice is another matter completely, but he is not the babe in the woods Warren made him out to be.
In terms of what Warren said about objecting to Sondland’s appointment, a Fox News report has proven that claim to be completely false.
Sondland’s appointment reportedly was approved by a voice vote, which was taken on June 28, 2018.
This was taken when Senator Mitch McConnell was the only Senator in the chamber.
Any Democrat could have shown up to object to his appointment, but nobody did.
The Fox News report further stated that according to the record, Warren did not object to any of the 11 ambassadorships awarded by Trump.
Perhaps Warren was too busy on the campaign trail or perhaps her memory is going, but either way, the statements she made in that clip are bald-faced lies.
