Fox News Legal Analyst Greg Jarrett: Trump Held To Different Standard, ‘Hillary Clinton Did The Same Thing’


Donald Trump’s alleged ‘hush money’ case began this week carried out by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, but Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett is calling BS.

Jarrett says the former president is being held to a completely different standard due to the fact that Hillary Clinton did ‘pretty much the same thing” but was not dragged into court over it.

Clinton was never put on trial for her campaign paying for the now discredited Steele Dossier, that supposedly showed Trump colluding with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

‘But if Your Last Name is Trump’

On Monday Trump sat in court for allegedly paying porn actress Stormy Daniels $130,000. The payment was allegedly part of a confidentiality agreement during the 2016 election.

But Hillary Clinton never went to court.

“Hillary Clinton did pretty much the same thing,” Jarrett told 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.

Double Standards and Hypocrisy Across the Board

Jarrett also said the judge in Trump’s case was guilty of their own double standards, overseeing a “tangled, torturous prosecution.”

“[Bragg] had to attach it to a supposed election law violation, well it’s not,” Jarrett said of Trump’s case. “Federal Election Commission investigated, and they said this is perfectly legal. It is not a campaign donation.”

“The DOJ concluded there is no crime here,” he added. “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. But the judge is letting him get away with it.”

Maybe it’s not too late for Donald Trump to change his last name to Clinton or Biden.
