Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity believes that in light of the domestic violence accusations against Michael Avenatti, he should be presumed innocent and wondered whether he should hold himself to the same standard to which he applied upon then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Hannity stated, “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.”
