Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett threw cold-water on the mainstream media’s full-fledged frenzy surrounding Michael Cohen’s guilty plea Thursday, saying his new deal with Robert Mueller does “absolutely nothing” to show any wrongdoing by the President.
“President Trump’s disgraced former personal lawyer Michael Cohen’s guilty plea to lying to Congress about a possible Trump Organization real estate project in Moscow that never materialized is not worth much – except to Cohen,” writes Jarrett.
“Before his newest guilty plea Thursday, Cohen – already a confessed liar and criminal – pleaded guilty in August to violating campaign finance laws, multiple counts of tax evasion and bank fraud dealing with his personal finances,” he adds.
“The double standard should be obvious to all. If you’re a government official without ties to Donald Trump, you can lie, make mistakes or fail to remember things correctly and face no legal consequences. But if you’re a private citizen – especially if you’re connected to Trump – you’ll be threatened with prosecution and the prospect of spending time behind bars,” writes Jarrett.
