Hannity: Avenatti 'Deserves Presumption of Innocence,' I Wonder if He'll Want Treatment He Gave to Kavanaugh
Thu, 15 Nov 2018 04:44:31 +0000
On Wednesday, Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity stated that Michael Avenatti should receive due process and the presumption of innocence and wondered if Avenatti would apply the same standard to himself that he applied to then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh or prefer due process and the presumption of innocence. Hannity said, “I will be consistent on the issues of due process and the presumption of innocence. But one can only wonder if now maybe Michael Avenatti would apply the same standard to himself that he applied to Justice Kavanaugh, or maybe tonight he would prefer that the country give him due process and the presumption of innocence. Or will you lock yourself up and just throw away the key? I believe he deserves presumption of innocence, due process. Let the legal system do their job, and hope and pray that the right justice and answer comes through.” (h/t Mediaite) Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) seemed to dismiss a threat from Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) to block President Donald Trump’s judicial appointees unless an up-or-down vote was held on a measure by he and Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) that would protect Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired. Graham told host Sean Hannity that he did not think Trump would order acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker to fire Mueller. Partial transcript as follows: HANNITY: Yes. Senator, we have a lot of important judicial appointments. We have the threat by Jeff Flake tonight about protecting Mueller. And I know you said that is fine, but the president said he has no intention of firing Mueller. It looks like some agreement has been made by the reports I read, between the president’s lawyers and the special counsel, written answers.
