A document has been unearthed proving John Harwood, the left-wing moderator of Wednesday night’s CNBC debate, lied when he attacked Senator Marco Rubio over his tax plan — and that document is Harwood’s own tweet from just two weeks ago.

Here’s the false gotcha Harwood launched at Rubio:

The Tax Foundation, which was alluded to earlier, scored your tax plan and concluded that you give nearly twice as much of a gain in after-tax income to the top one-percent as to people in the middle of the income scale. Since you’re a champion of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, don’t you have that backward?

Rubio immediately hit Harwood back: “No, you wrote a story on it, you had to go back and correct it.”

Harwood laughed and lied again, “No, I didn’t.”

Except Harwood did. Here’s Harwood’s own tweet from just two weeks ago:

Harwood also lied about The Tax Foundation findings. According to their study, under Rubio’s plan, the bottom ten percent do twice as well as the top ten percent.
