Hannity guest says the “true crime” in Kavanaugh allegations is the timing of the report

David Schoen: “By presenting this thing under, you know, this veil of myserty, to tantalize and that sort of thing. That's the real crime”

From the September 17 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Sean Hannity Show:

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): You're a criminal defense attorney, you have one guy that says, ‘I have no recollection of that’, and supposedly he was in the room at the time this happened, which would have been groping and fondling this woman against her will, what are we to make of it?

DAVID SCHOEN: Look, as a criminal defense matter, if a criminal defense lawyer couldn’t win this case for a Judge soon-to-be Justice Kavanaugh, he or she ought to give up their license. It wouldn’t hold up in court, no prosecutor would prosecute the case of course.


We have seen grandstanding at one level or another between Spartacus and now Senator Feinstein—that is the unfair situation that was created for this Professor Ford. Senators did by waiting until the last minute, by presenting this thing under, you know, this veil of mystery, to tantalize and that sort of thing. That’s the real crime here that happened, it seems to me.

If they are going to go forward, she has supposedly agreed to testify under oath, they should take that testimony, but it is very difficult, certainly you can’t prove that allegation to anyone’s satisfaction, it seems to me. And on the other hand, one might say they should move forward, assume that something she said is true, would they still confirm Justice Kavanaugh if this were an incident that happened in high school and even as described by Professor Ford?
