Letter: Is presumption of innocence exclusively for Republicans?

To the Editor:

Following Judge Brett Kavanaugh's bizarre performance during his confirmation hearing, President Donald Trump and Republicans are whining that Democrats are not affording Judge Kavanaugh the presumption of innocence.

Talk about gall. For well over a year Trump has referred to Hillary Clinton as "crooked" Hillary.

Unless I missed the trial, Clinton has not been charged or convicted of any criminal behavior. Apparently, the presumption of innocence should only be given to Republicans.
