You know, for all the times CNN host Chris Cuomo has reminded us that he was a lawyer at one time, he sure does like throwing out the rule of law to administer his own form of wicked justice. Just last August, he rationalized the leftist violence of Antifa , arguing that they had “morality” on their side and were fighting an “evil” regime. During Tuesday’s PrimeTime, the raging CNN host argued that we should throw out the presumption of innocence for Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Despite conceding that the presumption of innocence was “one of the most sacred principles of our criminal justice system” and “a valued, valued construct in a court of law”, he was adamant that it should not apply to Kavanaugh.
“We were not in a court of law,” he declared. “This was a kangaroo court. You know, politicians fighting over a position on the Supreme Court.” Good to know he finally realized how much of a shame it was because he played his part in it . He then lashed out at the President for saying Kavanaugh was found innocent:
So “proven innocent,” the president said. This is a perfect time for Mark Twain’s quote, “lies, damn lies, and then you have statistics.” It is a lie to say that the presumption applied here because like I just said here, we’re not in a court. And Trump knew this would be a political measure so it’s a lie. It’s a damned lie to say he was found innocent. We certainly don’t know to any certainly that Kavanaugh was blameless on all fronts.
Cuomo’s right though, Kavanaugh wasn’t in a court of law. But, what Cuomo, the liberal media, and the left wanted was to exact a punishment on Kavanaugh. If they had their way, it would be punishment carried out using non-existent evidence and claims so shaky they could not stand in an actual court of law. And seeing as the liberal media were touting how others were coming out with their stories of sexual assault, it would be a cruel justice to punish Kavanaugh for the crimes of their attackers.
