Zina Bash, a White House aide who was sitting behind Judge Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing is accused of making a “White Power” symbol on Tuesday.

The claims began on Twitter then spread to other social media platforms. The People For Bernie Sanders Facebook page — which has 1.4 million fans — shared a video of the incident on Tuesday. Within 7 hours of being posted the video had received 670,000 views.

While it does look like she could be flashing a hand sign that has become a symbol for white supremacist groups over the last few years, many have argued that was just how her hand happened to be resting. Others have argued that there is nothing natural about how her hand is resting.

The accusation drew enough attention that her husband John Bash spoke out against the allegations. John is the U.S. attorney for the western district of Texas. His response came in a series of tweets from his official U.S. Attorney General Twitter account.

The attacks today on my wife are repulsive. Everyone tweeting this vicious conspiracy theory should be ashamed of themselves. We weren’t even familiar with the hateful symbol being attributed to her for the random way she rested her hand during a long hearing. 1/3

Zina is Mexican on her mother’s side and Jewish on her father’s side. She was born in Mexico. Her grandparents were Holocaust survivors. We of course have nothing to do with hate groups, which aim to terrorize and demean other people — never have and never would. 2/3

Some of the Twitter comments have even referred to our baby daughter. I know that there are good folks on both sides of the political divide. I hope that people will clearly condemn this idiotic and sickening accusation. 3/3
