Senator Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas, stopped by Fox Business recently for an appearance on Mornings with Maria.
He needed only two words to describe former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's behavior:
When you compare Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, there's no question that Hillary Clinton has been more closely involved with illegal doings. Just the Jeffrey Epstein scandal alone and the Monica Lewinsky ordeal show that the Clintons are ten times the problem that Donald Trump is.
Yet, because liberals are in power, it's Trump being arrested.
Tom Cotton has a SERIOUS problem with that.
"Let’s talk about this two systems of justice. No comment whatsoever from the White House on the influence peddling that’s in plain sight, and yet former President Trump was indicted, arrested. He has pled not guilty to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records Tuesday in New York City," Maria Bartiromo said. "You’ve said this indictment should be dismissed immediately. Tell us more."
"Well, Maria, it’s unprecedented in American history that the party in power would target a former President with criminal charges. Such a step should not be taken lightly. But Alvin Bragg’s indictment of Donald Trump is a joke," Cotton replied. "First off, all the so-called crimes appear to be beyond the five-year statute of limitations. Second, if you look at it as a matter of law, Alvin Bragg didn’t even allege an underlying felony which is necessary. I guess everybody says it’s a federal election crime, but the Federal Election Commission didn’t even pursue it, much less Alvin Bragg’s predecessor, the Department of Justice." He went on:
Third, consider the evidence here for this so-called crime. You have a woman who has contradicted herself multiple times about these facts, and you have a man who wasn’t just convicted of a felony, he was convicted of lying under oath, not exactly strong evidence in a court of law. And while you pointed out the two systems of justice, I would note that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was fined over $100,000 for falsifying records for the Steele dossier. And where was that campaign based? It was in New York City, Maria. So, where are the criminal charges against Hillary Clinton and her campaign?
"Surprisingly, there are no charges against Hillary Clinton," Cotton concluded. "Even though she has confessed that they falsified their campaign reports, they characterized as legal expenses, what was really dirty opposition research that produced the fake Steele dossier to try to swing the 2016 election. That’s just one reason or one example of how this is a political witch hunt. Another one is that you’re going to have another hearing until December, Maria. I mean, it’s early April, and this is a relatively straightforward, factually simple case. I think this is primarily about pushing these proceedings into our nominating season, then ultimately into the general election."
