Sen. Chris Coons: Burden of proof lies with Brett Kavanaugh to prove his innocence

Conservatives condemn 'Democratic kangaroo court'

By Valerie Richardson
The Washington Times
Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Sen. Chris Coons, Delaware Democrat, drew double-takes on the right Monday after insisting that the burden of proof lies with Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to prove his innocence.

Ms. Coons said that Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez “have nothing to gain” and have put themselves “at legal risk” by accusing Mr. Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in his teen years.

“It is Judge Kavanaugh who is seeking a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court and who I think now bears the burden of disproving these allegations,” said Mr. Coons in a Monday interview on MSNBC, “rather than Dr. Ford and Deborah Ramirez who should be dismissed with slanderous accusations.”

Townhall.com’s Guy Benson called the argument “just wild,” while the Media Research Center blasted it as the “Dem idea of justice.”

Poster comment: this is typical of socalist democrat thugs to demand that the accused prove his innocence, reversing several millenia of precedent.

ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat (“the burden of proof is on the one who declares, not on one who denies”).


In addition to criminal law and millenia of legal precedent, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 11, provides:

1. Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for is defence.

2. No one shall be held guilty of any penal offence on account of any act or omission which did not constitute a penal offence, under national or international law, at the time when it was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than the one that was aplicable at the time the penal offence was committed.

I see where Sen. Chris Coons has been credibly accused of ass raping a child. It is now his burden to prove his innocence. That's the way the system works in his world.

And to think these are United States senators without the basic 4th grade civics lessons under their belt. The accused must prove innocence! LOL what morons. Here's more from Tucker's page:

Did you see or hear Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn) said to regards a 'constitutional duty?'

“We have a constitutional duty to get to the bottom of these allegations," he said. "They are serious, and credible. And now, the person with the most knowledge about them, namely, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, has a responsibility to come forward with evidence to rebut them.”​

He apparently graduated from Yale Law as well. Might have skipped the Constitutional Law course though.

Other quotes by another US Senator Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Ha:

“I just want to say to the men in this country, 'Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change,'" "Not only do women, like Dr. Ford, who bravely comes forward, need to be heard, but they need to be believed.”

Therefore, men are automatically guilty until proven by themselves innocent. Men are inherently guilty and every woman must be believed.

On Kavanaugh's denial of the allegations against him Sen Hirono continues:

"I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his case,"

These are elected Senators folks.

The senator is not that stupid. He knows his statement was false. He depends on his listener to be unaware and to believe him. He is just feeding the masses with propaganda. He is not the only senator to make the same false claim.
