Martha on Avenatti Allegations: Each Misconduct Case 'Is Individual,' 'Accuser & Accused Deserve' to Be Heard
Martha MacCallum addressed the recent domestic misconduct allegations against celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti, and the case of a Tennessee college student expelled after being accused of rape.
MacCallum played tape of Avenatti -- who represents pornographic actress Stormy Daniels in her case against President Trump -- saying it "sounds righteous" that he is pursuing the president in court.
"I don't think there's anything wrong with calling out people like me for not doing enough to defend women and minorities," Avenatti said at a previous press availability. He repeatedly called for stopping the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh.
MacCallum said that since Avenatti is now accused of domestic violence himself, "he is a big fan of due process for both sides" after his defenders by default showed they sometimes don't "hashtag: believe survivors."
"This is the problem of blanket statements. Each of these cases is individual, each circumstance unique and each needs to be treated as such," MacCallum said.
"Each accuser and accused deserves to have the opportunity to tell their side of the story," she said.
MacCallum spoke with C.D. Mock, the father of former University of Tennessee-Chattanooga student Corey Mock, who was expelled in the aftermath of rape allegations by a fellow student.
She and Mock discussed how Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is rolling back Obama-era regulations that the father said were "pushing schools to find these young men guilty."
