Legal Analyst On Trump Case: 'Hillary Clinton Did the Same Thing... But if Your Last Name is Trump'


As Donald Trump sits in court this week for a supposed hush money case, a Fox News legal analyst couldn't help but note that "Hillary Clinton did pretty much the same thing.”

According to Gregg Jarrett, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump is held to a “different” standard, because what he is being accused of is so similar to Hillary Clinton’s campaign’s involvement in the Steele Dossier.

On Monday, Trump’s trial began over an alleged $130,000 payout to porn star Stormy Daniels as part of a confidentiality agreement. Jarrett noted the similarities between this case and the lack of prosecution towards Clinton, whose campaign financed a dossier created by Christopher Steele that was supposed to show collusion between Trump and Russia during the 2016 election. 

That dossier has since been discredited.

But why wasn't Clinton hauled off to court?

“Hillary Clinton did pretty much the same thing,” Jarrett said on “Fox and Friends.” “She, too, used a lawyer to secretly pay for the phony Steele Dossier and booking it as legal expenses. She was fined by the FEC, but she wasn’t prosecuted and neither was Barack Obama, even though he was fined a whopping $375,000 for hiding donors and keeping illegal contributions.”

“But, if your last name is Trump, the standard of justice is completely different and turned on its head,” Jarrett added.

Earlier in the interview, Jarrett criticized Bragg for what he described as a “tangled, torturous prosecution” that was already investigated by the federal government and those results saw no charges or fines.

“[Bragg] had to attach it to a supposed election law violation, well it’s not. Federal Election Commission investigated, and they said this is perfectly legal. It is not a campaign donation,” Jarrett said of the Trump case. “The DOJ concluded there is no crime here."

Jarrett said the judge was letting Bragg get away with things that typically aren't accepted in the court.

"But, you know, enter Alvin Bragg who is charging under federal law even though he is a local prosecutor and has no jurisdiction and authority to do that, Jarrett said. "But the judge is letting him get away with it.”

So if your last name is Clinton or Obama - or Biden - you're fine.

But if it's Trump, expect a witch hunt.
