Greg Jarrett: Trump Had different standards, ‘Hillary Clinton did the same thing’

Gregg Jarrett, a legal analyst for Fox News, refutes Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's claim that Donald Trump accepted "hush money" earlier this week.

Jarrett argues that the former president is being judged against an entirely different standard than the current president, Hillary Clinton, who essentially committed the same offense but was not brought into court for I, as The Political Insider reported.

Clinton was never prosecuted for funding the Steele Dossier, which has since been discredited, which purportedly demonstrated Trump's collusion with Russia in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

‘But if Your Last Name is Trump’

Trump appeared in court on Monday on suspicion that he paid pornographic actress Stormy Daniels $130,000. During the 2016 election, the payment was allegedly made in accordance with a confidentiality agreement.

But Hillary Clinton never went to court, as the commentator pointed out: “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. "The judge in Trump's case, according to Jarrett, was also culpable of their own double standards for presiding over 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.”

Donald Trump could potentially petition the court to have Clinton or Biden as an alternative surname before it is too late?
