Crime Politics

Hillary Clinton’s Crimes are Worse than Bob Menendez’s but He’s the Only One Facing Prison Time

Kudos to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough for being willing to talk about the many crimes and scandals of Hillary Clinton, even on a network as liberal as MSNBC. He did so again on Wednesday when he threw a little bit of a hissy fit over what he perceives as a tremendous double standard among Democrat pundits.

But I worked with guys in Congress that went golfing like one or two times in Ireland, and then six months later put a bill on the floor of the House, and they went to jail, and we’re sitting here going, wait a second, wait, now maybe he just got paid three times the amount. Maybe Belarus or telecom companies or maybe this — come on. We’re not naive babes in the woods. 

And I know you’re playing this game. You’re ‘I’m going to be a tough professional journalist,’ and that’s really awesome. But Mika — Bob McDonnell. Let’s look at what Bob McDonnell. What Bob McDonnell did pales in comparison to what’s in this book. What Bob Menendez did pales in comparison to this book. The Clintons have made $150 million over the past decade because of contacts they made during public service. I will sit back and let you ask the tough questions. I’m just curious, though, why aren’t the Clintons held to a standard that Bob McDonnell’s not held to. That Bob Menendez is not held to. That all of these congressmen that get thrown into jail for going on a — going to a Redskins game or going on a golf trip, compared to $150 million. 

 

The fact of the matter is that the allegations against the Clinton’s are well-founded, and there is a tremendous amount of evidence against them… yet the Justice Department has done nothing.

In the past (and even now) the DOJ has moved against politicians for much lesser crimes and with much less evidence… but as far as we know, the DOJ hasn’t even begun to investigate any of the allegations against them.

Watch as Joe wonders why it is that the Clinton’s continue to get preferential treatment from everyone.

 

 

Joe Scarborough: I haven’t said anything. I’m going to jump in here. I don’t get this. I’ll be really honest. I’m looking around here and I don’t get this.

I’m certainly — I mean if Peter’s been reckless, go ahead and say he’s been reckless.

Mika Brzezinski: The golfing trips your friends in Congress who were called out — who called them out on that and held them accountable? What do you mean?

Joe Scarborough: The Justice Department did. 

Mika Brzezinski: It wasn’t Peter Schweizer, it was the Justice Department. 

Joe Scarborough: Oh, no no, no, no. No, no, no. Wait, are you saying that news — that newspapers and reporters shouldn’t — shouldn’t go out and report on this? Because I’ll tell you, when Peter Schweizer was talking about Congress insider trading we had him on the set, ‘great job, way to go, you’re great, you’ve called this out.’

60 Minutes had him on there, ‘great job.’

But it’s the Clintons and suddenly, oh my god, let’s bow down before Bill and Hillary, because if we ask the same questions of them, that we ask of every other politician, then oh my god, we have crossed a line. It’s like that part in Indiana Jones where you cross the line and the rock comes after you because you dared crossed the Clintons, who made $150 million while dudes get thrown in jail for going on a golf trip in Ireland and the weather probably even sucked. So I don’t really understand the shock and awe here.
