“I was falsely accused of Sexual assault” Tucker Carlson fights back tears telling emotional story

I am very concerned about the growing number of these public charges – which tarnish reputations permanently whether or not they are true. Public outcry for resignations because, of course, the accusers never lie …

What happened to due process, as guaranteed in Articles Five and Fourteen of our Constitution?

What is “due process of law”? According to Wikipedia:

Due process is the legal requirement that the state must respect all legal rights that are owed to a person. Due process balances the power of law of the land and protects the individual person from it. When a government harms a person without following the exact course of the law, this constitutes a due process violation, which offends the rule of law.

I with Betsy McCaughey’s article today in Real Clear Politics:

New York’s Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is spearheading a McCarthyite purge of sexual harassers from Congress, throwing the nation’s capital into turmoil. What counts as sexual harassment? Good question. Men accused of boorish gestures or vulgar remarks face the same disgrace as outright rapists. And never mind if the accusations lack proof and the accusers remain anonymous.

Consider the charges dredged up again this week against President Trump. You heard them last year when he was campaigning for president. One accuser, Jessica Leeds, said that more than 30 years ago Trump groped her on a plane. But reporters were not able to confirm the flight, date or even year the incident was supposed to have occurred and couldn’t track down one witness to support her story.

 The same was true with the other accusers. No facts.

No wonder the public dismissed the claims and elected Trump.

Monday, Leeds and two other accusers reiterated their old, unsubstantiated charges at a press conference. In response, six Democratic senators, including Gillibrand, are calling for Trump to step down from the presidency. It’s as if the #MeToo movement lessens the standard of proof and makes due process unnecessary.

That’s what’s happening in Congress. Take the anonymous former campaign worker who’s accusing Rep. Ruben Kihuen, D-Nev., of touching her thigh twice, making her feel uncomfortable. Kihuen denies it, but House minority leader Nancy Pelosi commends the woman for coming forward (anonymously?) and demands that he resign.

What about Kihuen’s right to a fair hearing and the presumption of innocence? Pelosi and the sex vigilantes are all too ready to toss due process in the wastebasket…

If a person believes that she/he has been sexually assaulted, or sexually harassed, then she/he should press charges against the alleged assaulter/harasser, and give that person the opportunity to defend against the allegations in a court of law.

There are times when I am sorry that we in the United States do not have stronger laws against slander and libel. Defamation should be treated as a serious crime.

    Great article–Thank You….Soon women who really have true sexual abuse in their past will not be believed. Sexual abuse in one’s past is is not a frivolous matter and can really affect a person’s life for many years, especially when it was by someone they trusted. Trust me I know(enough said there).
    What I find really strange about these political accusations, is that except for a very few of the women, they were mature strong women old enough to be able to speak up at the time not 20, 30 or 40 years later. Very few were women that had employment or even family connections to the person they are accusing, thus really had nothing to fear if they had said something at the time of the incident.
    Truly praying this stops, for it is really hurting the true victims of sexual abuse who are already battling & trying to conquer the demons of their abusive past without events like this being misused.

        The “Me Too” on FB truly confused the issue of sexual abuse.
        People I knew/thought had no sexual abuse in their past were standing up & posting “Me Too” on their page.
        When I questioned a few, they could not explain why they were saying “Me Too”.
        I questioned some of my friends, asking if they had been abused. Those that said “no”, I then asked why they were saying “Me Too”, and most responded with “Because”. (actually only one of the dozens of friends I questioned said yes. )
        Three of my granddaughters were ones that posted “Me Too”. When I talked to their mothers and expressed what I felt it looked like, I had gasps from my two daughters that others might think there could have been sexual problems in their families. H3LL yes I was shocked thinking that their families were not what I thought. (Just my rant).

    • Agreed. Rape and sexual abuse are serious crimes, and need to be treated seriously. But that’s awfully hard to do when the first thing a woman does to a man she doesn’t like these days is start screaming about sexual harassment.

    Shortly after O’Reilly left Fox News Hannity was being targeted but fought back and won

    O’Reilly made a comment he should have fought back too and that he had some very serious evidence

    A day or 2 ago O’Reilly was on the Blaze and told of this tape his lawyer listened to in which a man was trying to convince a woman to file sex charges against Trump in exchange for $200K

    O said Trump knows about the tape

    And that there are a total of 3 crimes on it

    It appears during this coming January the DemocRats are planning an all out assault on President Trump on sex charges to remove him from office

  4. * they should face the person they are accusing in a court of law, as soon as possible, not twenty or thirty freaking years later. That alone should be grounds for the case to be dismissed.

    And when these women are proven to be liars after accusing a man of sexual misconduct, they should be horsewhipped in the streets.

      That’s why I believe that the laws against defamation (libel and slander) should be stronger. If these women and men who publicly accuse another person of crimes were aware that lying most likely would land them in jail and/or cost them serious money, they might think twice about making false claims.

      These women need to face criminal charges, large fines, jail time(even if just for a month), and months of community service.

        Why just a month. False witness is worse than perjury. To accuse someone of a crime you know to be untrue demands the same penalty as would have been delivered to the accused individual if found guilty. So rape should insure a five-seven year sentence.

        Sexual harassment a minimum of a 30,000 fine and a year in jail.

    The blogger says “……that’s a price I’m willing to pay…………….” and apparently she doesn’t understand that it wouldn’t be her paying the price.

    The assumptions and the deceptions that this stuff is floating in is extensive.

    The generalizations made on all sides make my head hurt.

    Rex chimes in.

    Look – let’s clear something up. The Dems discovered a tactic that worked today. Sexual assault allegations, given oxygen by media proxies, are extremely effective.
