Televangelist Pat Robertson defended Charlie Rose, Roy Moore and other “terrific people” who have been accused of sexual misconduct.
Robertson made his comments to a female co-host on “The 700 Club,” notes Right Wing Watch:
Now it’s looked on as shocking but, folks, it’s been happening a long time and nobody said anything about it. Now they’re finally wising up, but I just hate to see some of these men’s careers—I mean, guys like Charlie Rose, these are terrific people and I hate to see it happen.
These guys don’t have a trial, either. They don’t have the rules of evidence to force these accusers to come forward with the preponderance of evidence is what you get in a trial. You don’t have that now, so these people’s careers are being ruined and we just hope and pray that these women are telling the truth.
