Mollie Hemingway appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Thursday evening to discuss what we have seen happen to the rule of law and presumption of innocence during the Kavanuagh hearings.
“[Lindsey Graham] really spoke to a lot of people who really feel like the sane part of the country has been taken hostage by the insane part of the country,” she said. “What we have witnessed in these last couple of weeks is just a travesty.”
Hemingway reiterated that in America, there are standards for what we demand before we declare someone guilty.
“This is about the Republic and whether we will do things this way, whether we will let our political and legal institutions crumble, or whether we have a higher standard that we’re known for, that’s built into our Constitution.”
“We did not have any additional supporting evidence today. Any at all,” she said. “It’s not an issue of whether you find one person compelling or another person compelling. It’s an issue of whether we have evidence to convict someone in this court of public opinion or otherwise.”
