Interview calls out Trump double standard, said Hillary Clinton should have been prosecuted

A former U.S. assistant attorney argued that there is a double standard between how former President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been treated.

Andrew McCarthy argued that Clinton should have been prosecuted based on the same standards used in Trump's case.

The comments

“I think Hillary Clinton is the most notorious case of it, where you have a two-tiered justice system and it’s obvious that the quality of justice that people get is dependent on their partisan affiliation or whether they are connected to people in the ruling class or not," he said during a Fox Business interview.

"So, to the extent that people are on fire about that, they have every right to be. I think the Hillary Clinton precedent, if we applied it as the law, what it would mean is nobody ever again would ever be prosecuted for classified information offenses. I don’t think we can have that," he added.

Not alone

Other leaders have also sounded off after Trump's recent indictment, including Twitter CEO Elon Musk.

“There does seem to be far higher interest in pursuing Trump compared to other people in politics,” Musk wrote in a Twitter post on Thursday night, responding to a comment made by a prominent user on the platform.

“Very important that the justice system rebut what appears to be differential enforcement or they will lose public trust," he added.

President Joe Biden was also found to have classified documents in his possession at multiple locations from his time as vice president.

Some are asking why Trump was indicted but Biden was not over the same issue.

"Trump wasn’t the only one discovered with classified documents in his possession. While Trump had over 300 classified documents recovered from his Mar-a-Lago residence/resort, Biden also had documents recovered from his former office in Washington, D.C. and from his home in Delaware (for the record, Mike Pence also had documents recovered from his Indiana home)," 19FortyFive stated.

Many questions remain following Trump's latest indictment, with the case moving forward as he seeks to win the GOP presidential nomination.
