Due process

Due process of law means the right of all persons to receive the guarantees and safeguards of the law and the judicial process. It includes such protections under the U.S. Constitution as adequate notice, assistance of counsel, and the right to remain silent (Fifth Amendment), to a speedy and public trial, to an impartial jury, and to confront and secure witnesses.

For a listing of what due process entails, see Vitek v. Jones (1980).

Due Process Clause

The Due Process Clause is the following provision in the Fourteenth Amendment:

... nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law ....

Attitudes toward due process

The far-left and liberals are increasingly opposed to due process, as seen in their propagation of the Kavanaugh smear and their opposition to federal government actions to expand due process protections.[1]
