Take a look at this remarkable twitter exchange between investigative reporter Paul Sperry and former Attorney General/Obama wing-man (his self-description, not mine), Eric Holder. Please read the bottom tweet first:
✔@EricHolderWhy don’t you shut the hell up. Your bias is showing. I bet you’ve never been a prosecutor or have any idea how DOJ works. People like you-who want to use the justice system for political reasons-are both dangerous and ignorant. The case was-like you-an obvious loser. https://twitter.com/paulsperry_/status/1229902788009832448 …
BREAKING: Molly Gaston, the asst US Attorney who signed letter to McCabe’s lawyer informing McCabe she was closing criminal case against him, is Democrat who’s given thousands to Dems including Obama & who once worked for Dem side of House Oversight & whose mother worked for WaPo.
So Eric Holder, who had no problem whatsoever politicizing the Justice Department while Attorney General, tosses an angry personal attack at Paul Sperry…for daring to tell his readers that the Assistant U.S. Attorney who signed the letter closing mccabe’s case is a committed, money-where-her-mouth-is, Democrat who donated money to the President who would have been implicated if mccabe were prosecuted.
Could the conflict of interest possibly be clearer? Could the necessity for Gaston to recuse herself possibly have been clearer?
If the Stone sentencing and mccabe free pass tell us anything, they tell us that, currently, we have a two-tier standard of justice:
-If you’re a Trump person, it’s open season.
-If you’re a Trump detractor, you’re a protected species.
Is it asking too much for there to be one standard of justice? I would hope not.
That said, however, I have a message for the folks (and there are plenty of them) who are OK with Stone’s sentencing and mccabe’s free pass, because they are against Trump and the people around him.
I suggest you remember that old saying; “what goes around comes around”. One day, your people just might be on the Roger Stone instead of the andrew mccabe side of things.
Think about it.
