“TODAY” show host Megyn Kelly falsely claimed that women — who have allegedly been sexually assaulted — have taken away men’s “due process rights.”
Kelly, who has a long history of making false statements, falsely claimed that men lost their due process rights under the Obama administration:
What happened on college campuses is sort of a harbinger of what’s been going on in the country, where we’ve swung the pendulum so far back against men, took away their due process rights.
They don’t have the right to cross examine. They don’t have the right to an attorney. They don’t have a right to evidence.
They don’t have a right to see emails that a woman sent saying maybe this was consensual. They don’t have that right. Or they didn’t under President Obama.
The Obama administration did put into place rules for colleges to protect the rights of the accuser, but those rules were rescinded by the Trump administration in September 2017, noted The Washington Post.
However, men charged with sexual assault crimes never lost their due process rights in a court of law as a result of the Obama rules.
