Alan Dershowitz: Look, the myth out there is that this is a job interview. Nonsense! First of all, if it was ever a job interview, you don’t start your job interview with half of your potential employers saying we’re not going to hire you under any circumstances. Second, once a person is accused publicly of specific, focused crimes that are career destroying, that job interview metaphor disappears. You have to now prove those allegations by clear and convincing evidence with due process. Imagine if the situation were different. Imagine if a liberal Democrat president had appointed the first Muslim American to the Supreme Court and somebody said, “Oh year, I remember when he was a terrorist when he was 17.” The ACLU would be all over this case. No, can’t presume guilt of terrorism. Everybody would be saying the burden of proof is so heavily – but when the shoe is on the other foot, when it is a white man being accused by the left of sexual offenses all the rules are called off. The rules of presumption of innocence, the rules of due process. We know he’s guilty because he’s a white man, she’s a woman, she’s a survivor. That’s the end of the inquiry.
