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.

JARRETT: Sessions and Rosenstein Need to Leave DOJ After Midterms
Just weeks before Americans head to the polls to decide the direction of the country, all eyes turn to the political futures of senior DOJ officials Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein; with many inside the GOP and the media calling for their resignations after the high-stakes midterm election.
Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett is leading the charge; publishing an opinion piece demanding the senior Trump aides “leave their top jobs” this fall.
“Fortunately for our country, Attorney General Jeff Sessions doesn’t have much more time left in his job. Once the Nov. 6 midterm elections are over, President Trump is widely expected to belatedly accept the letter of resignation tendered by Sessions in May 2017,” writes Jarrett.
“Hopefully, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will also leave the Justice Department when Sessions heads out the door,” he adds.
“Both Sessions and Rosenstein have done enormous damage to the Trump presidency, our nation and our system of justice. We will all be better off with them out of their jobs. As the old saying goes, ‘good riddance to bad rubbish!’” says the article.

GREGG JARRETT: Democrats' Outrageous Conduct Victimizes ALL Americans
Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett slammed Democratic lawmakers just hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee wrapped-up its high-stakes hearings to address allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh Thursday; saying their “outrageous” conduct should concern all Americans.
“If Judge Brett Kavanaugh was not telling the truth Thursday at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on his nomination to the Supreme Court, he is one of America’s greatest actors,” writes Jarrett.
“Fundamental fairness and due process demand every accused person receive a presumption of innocence. If it did not exist, America would be a police state, where the government could accuse any of us of any crime and convict us without evidence. The liberty and freedom of each and every one of us would be endangered,” he adds.
“Both Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford are the victims of the outrageous conduct by Senate Democrats. And so are the American people,” says Jarrett.
