Trump tweeted about the very clear double standard.
“So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie,” Trump tweeted.
“A double standard like never seen before in the history of our Country?” he wrote, referring to Hillary Clinton, former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and special counsel Robert Mueller, among others.
Made Men in the DC Mafia play by a different set a rules than the mere citizens they intimidate and extort.
This is what installing all the liberal judges has been working up to. Protecting those of the deep state and convicting political enemies.
This is what happens when you’ve got a campaign organization and presidential administration filled with crooks.
The United States Senate confirmed the nomination of U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson by a vote of 97 to 0 on March 17, 2011—certainly not a one-sided partisan endorsement.
Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress, obstruction, and witness tampering.
He was found guilty on all counts by a jury, not pronounced guilty by a judge.
@Greg: Hillary lied on video to Congress. Why is she not in jail? Simple… because the FBI under Comey, at the behest of Obama and Lynch, gave her a pass.
The Democrats weaponizing the legal system renders considering such convictions as valid moot.
Stone has been charged with, tried, and found guilty of crimes by a jury. That’s how the American legal system works.
Stone’s lawyer couldn’t even come up with any defense witnesses. Trump hasn’t denied the charges—instead he’s calling into question the integrity of the legal system because his political enemies haven’t been convicted. There hasn’t been enough evidence against them to file charges—in Clinton’s case, after endless investigation of every politically useful allegation.
What’s the current count now of high-placed Trump associates who have been convicted or have pleaded guilty? What does this tell us?
What goes around…
@Greg: Yeah, we can assume Stone is REALLY guilty because trials run by liberal, activist, ideological judges don’t exist.
Does everything Democrats are involved in HAVE to be corrupt or is that just their choice?
Good luck with that…
High level? Zero
How many Dem families were making money in Ukraine?
More than zero.
@Nathan Blue: Imagine what that balance sheet would look like if Pelosi would actually ATTEND to ethics in her House. Omar? Tlaib? Hastings? Hill? Cummings? (of course, he dropped dead and saved her the trouble). It’s difficult to hold Democrats accountable, for things like extortion of foreign governments, if you get impeached each time you do it.
