Sarah Huckabee Sanders was on fire in an interview on CNN. Host John Berman made the mistake of bringing up the ridiculous standard the Robert Mueller investigation is using to arrest people like Roger Stone, the former Trump adviser. Mueller is running around arresting people for allegedly lying to the FBI, so Sarah wanted to know when is it Hillary Clinton’s turn? But that’s not all. The press secretary blasted a slew of Democratic criminals. You’ll love this.
Before dawn on Friday morning, Robert Mueller ordered the FBI to bust into Roger Stone’s Fort Lauderdale home and arrest him like he was a felon fleeing police. It was so over-the-top and so traumatic for Stone’s wife, it makes most people sick. The double standard is ridiculous.
“At the crack of dawn, 29 FBI agents arrived at my home with 17 vehicles, with lights flashing, when they could have contacted my lawyer,” Stone explained after a court appearance Friday. “But the FBI agents were extraordinarily courteous.” Stone’s attorney added that the arrest was a “spectacle.”
“A SWAT team, searching the house, scaring his wife, scaring his dogs—it was completely unnecessary,” Stone’s attorney said. “A telephone call would have done the job, and he would have appeared. Mr. Stone has nothing to hide.”
The double standard is ridiculous. Democrats commit actual crimes and get away with it, Republicans linked to President Donald Trump who have done nothing wrong get arrested over trumped up charges just to so Mueller looks like he really has something on the president. That’s where Sarah Sanders comes in.
Poor Sarah drew the short stick among Trump’s staffers to appear on CNN Friday morning right after the Stone arrest. No one on Trump’s staff wants to do CNN. They know they will be treated like crap and bombarded with fake news that they then have to comment on. Well, Sarah was in rare form and made sure CNN’s host John Berman didn’t get away with a thing.
Of course, CNN thinks Stone is somehow connected to Russia and will be the smoking gun to bring the president down. Sarah was asked about the 24-page indictment that alleges that Stone worked to obstruct the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election by making false statements to the committee.
“This has nothing to do with the president and certainly nothing to do with the White House,” Sanders said on CNN. “This is something that has to do solely with that individual.”
Sanders wondered if the same standards the FBI is employing with Stone would apply to other players in the 2016 election who have lied to the FBI. When will they be arrested and locked up?
Sanders said, “We’ll let the courts make the decision. A bigger question is: If this is the standard, will the same standard apply to people like Hillary Clinton, James Comey and [James] Clapper?”
Hillary Clinton, former FBI director James Comey, and former CIA Director James Clapper have all allegedly made false statements or been dishonest with the authorities during moments of official testimony. Sanders continued, “Will we see the same people we know have all made false statements? Will that same standard apply? That’s a question we’ll see what happens on that front.”
When CNN’s host tried to go on about collusion with Wikileaks, even though Stone wasn’t charged with collusion with anyone, Sarah blasted Berman. “Outlets just like yours — CNN — spent significant time not only looking for information from WikiLeaks but also reporting on it,” she said. “Does that mean CNN is guilty of collusion?”
The truth is if Barack Obama was held to the same standard as what Mueller is trying to hold to President Trump, the former president would be charged with colluding with Iran. Wall Street Journal columnist Lee Smith asked that very question and concluded that Obama would be locked up by the same standards Mueller and his deep state rats are using to judge Trump.
He pointed out: “Then for 18 months in 2014-15, the Obama White House gave the Iranians $700 million a month in sanctions relief. In January 2016, Mr. Obama sent Iran another $1.7 billion in cash. The administration also had a habit of leaking news of Israeli strikes on Iranian arms convoys and depots in Syria.”
Yet, there was no investigation into Obama, was there?
“Mr. Trump’s Russia policy has been as hard-line as that of any post-Cold War administration, including Mr. Obama’s. The FBI’s motive for investigating Mr. Trump looks more like pure politics,” Lee Smith wrote.
This conclusion isn’t coming from a Trump supporter. But someone who is entrenched in the Beltway and is being just plain honest about Mueller’s investigation. Americans see the double standard. Nothing ever happens to those elites like Hillary and her buddies who have blatantly broken the law.
Americans now believe Washington D.C. is like the lawless wild west, but only for the deep state Democrats. Thank God for Sarah Sanders and those who are loyal to President Trump in his administration. They are the only light in that deep and murky swamp in Washington, D.C.
