Sarah Sanders on Stone Arrest: Does the Same Standard Apply to Clinton?
Friday morning, Roger Stone, a longtime ally of President Donald J. Trump, was arrested at his Fort Lauderdale, Florida home for “making false statements” to authorities during the investigation into so far non-existent “Russian collusion.”
Press Secretary Sarah Sanders had a swift response to the arrest, which is one of many arrests made, not for any wrongdoing by the Trump campaign, but for process crimes allegedly committed during the investigation into the Trump campaign.
“A bigger question is if this is the standard, will the same standard apply to people like Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Clapper? Will we see the same people we know also made false statements, will that same standard apply?” Sander reportedly said.
If the same standard did apply, the deep staters and D.C. establishment types would be in panic mode.
Twice-failed presidential Clinton lied under oath during House testimony regarding her private email server, during which she claimed that she never sent or received any classified information via that server. We know now that that was a lie. The video of that incident is here, and publicly available to any interested parties, including law enforcement.
Former FBI Director James Comey has long been suspected of lying under oath during Congressional testimony, claiming that he never leaked information about the Mueller investigation to the press. Multiple FBI agents have received improper gifts from reporters, raising questions of bribery.
James Clapper, former director of national intelligence, lied to Congress about the National Security Agency’s illicit spying on millions of Americans, which was revealed later by whistleblower Edward Snowden.
In a just nation, everyone is equal under the law. America, sadly, is no longer a just nation.
