This morning I went to Fox News’ website and watched the clips available from Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson show.
And the final clip available was a brief segment with Mark Steyn in which Tucker played a clip of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand on the Senate floor.
I couldn’t believe what I was watching.
Gillibrand sarcastically mocked those of us who believe in an American’s right to due process.
I’ll post the video clip with Mark Steyn down below, but here is what Gillibrand said in that clip:
“To those that I hear [chuckles] say over and over that ‘this isn’t fair to Judge Kavanaugh. He’s entitled to due process. What about the presumption of innocence until proven guilty?’ He’s NOT entitled to those because we’re not actually seeking to convict him!”
Dear God, what is wrong with this woman?
This is a deeply dangerous position for an attorney and a member of the United States Senate to take.
If Senate testimony has no weight, why put witnesses under oath? Why take statements that are under penalty of perjury if the statements are false?
Gillibrand seems to be oblivious to the fact that Kavanaugh and any witnesses who testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee are sworn in under oath. If anyone lies in his or her testimony – despite the fact that nobody in the Senate is seeking to convict – he or she can be charged with perjury.
That’s because the United States Senate is not — as Gillibrand seems to believe — a kangaroo court.
And a person’s right to due process do not stop at the door of a courthouse.
The presumption of innocence is sacrosanct – or at least it’s supposed to be.
And the fact that Gillibrand – a member of the “World’s most deliberative body” — doesn’t believe that is not only revealing; it’s incredibly dangerous.
Gillibrand wants to be President of the United States.
And this is what she thinks.
Listen to the clip in this segment below.
Listen to her condescension and sarcasm.
The Democrat Party revile our unalienable rights.
And for all their talk about “justice,” they have zero respect for the foundation of our justice system.
