Hirono: Kavanaugh Doesn’t Get Presumption of Innocence Because of His ‘Ideological Agenda’

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii) appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday, where she appeared to insinuate that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh does not get the presumption of innocence because of his "ideological agenda," citing his views on abortion.

Christine Blasey Ford, a professor of psychology at Palo Alto University in California, has accused Kavanaugh of drunkenly pinning her to a bed, groping her, and trying to stifle her screams at a high school party in the early 1980's. Kavanaugh denied the allegations, as has his former classmate Mark Judge, who Ford claims was also in the room at the time of the alleged incident. Two other people that Ford alleges were at the party in question, have also denied any knowledge of the party or sexual assault.

Tapper said that four witnesses have denied knowledge of the sexual assault allegation waged against Kavanaugh before asking Hirono whether Kavanaugh should get the presumption of innocence as any other American.

2:37 - that doesn't apply when the accused is a Republican or conservative - or constitutionalist!

He's considered ideological by democrats because he follows the constitution and they follow their emotions whatever they might be that day.

You better start paying attention to something other than your facebook likes.
Innocent until proven guilty is the BEDROCK of our legal system, but people like him think YOUR rights are something they can measure and parcel out according to how much they like or dislike an idea.
I keep telling you (but you can't hear for all the cheering) they will not stop. The Second Amendment goes first so when they REALLY put the hammer down on "we, the people", all we can do is what the British do now --- exactly what they are told to do.
Keep cheering.

You would think he was a resident of the Republic of Maryland, where you are Guilty till you can prove your innocence. A country where only criminals get to carry firearms concealed. A country that feeds welfare scum better than working folks.

Burden of proof lies with the accuser, period.

This doesn't change.

Prove it. Give us police reports. You have none.

Go away, you are defeated.
