Speaking on ‘America Now’ Monday night, host Buck Sexton weighed-in on the ongoing controversy surrounding GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore, saying the case will never be tried in the court of law, but was centered on the simple question of, “Who do you believe?”
“We should note as we get into this, it’s all about ‘Who do you believe?’ These allegations against Roy Moore will never make it into court. They are all passed any statute of limitations. He will have no legal, even if he wanted to, he has no legal recourse to defend himself,” said Buck.
“This is all being fought in the court of public opinion right now. There will never be a court hearing for all of this. We should also understand what the stakes are,” he added. “It’s very, very troubling.”
“The big issue is, do you believe this is what happened? Do you believe this is an accurate accounting of events 40 years ago or not? I don’t think the question is so much about should the act that Roy Moore is accused of disqualify him from being a Senator, but rather do you believe it?” Sexton said.
“On the one hand, if you do not believe it, think about what a terrible circumstance this is? If he steps down then he’s definitely going to be -in the eyes of many- viewed as admitting guilt. Even if he steps down for the good of the party,” said Buck.
“If he is guilty, what a mess the Republican Party finds itself in here. There’s obviously a real possibility, and the possibility seemed to increase today based on the fact that there’s another allegation,” he added.
