A video clip from a 2019 Joe Biden appearance on "The View" surfaced Monday, showing the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee saying that there was no need to prove any allegations against Justice Kavanaugh "beyond a reasonable doubt," since he was undergoing a "job interview" and not criminal proceedings during his confirmation process:
In the clip, published by the Washington Free Beacon, Biden is just one of a number of prominent Democrats suggesting that the presumption of innocence did not apply to Brett Kavanaugh as he faced sexual assault allegations, given the importance of the office he was pursuing.
Biden, who is now facing his own sexual assault allegations from Tara Reade, said:
"A Supreme Court hearing is not a trial. It's a job interview. It's a job interview. And, you don't have to prove a reasonable doubt anything as to why you shouldn't put so and so on the court."
