One of the troubling things that we’ve seen over the past five years has been the uneven application of the law.

The whole foundation of our country is based upon the rule of law. But we seem to see more cases now where, if you have the magical “D” after your name, there is little consequence for your actions. But if they don’t like you politically, watch out.

The supreme example of that is Donald Trump. We’ve seen for the past five years numerous investigations in search of a crime. That isn’t supposed to be the way this works. It isn’t supposed to be about going on a fishing expedition against your political opponents. That’s the stuff of banana republics, not the greatest nation on the face of the Earth, one that has been a light of freedom to the rest of the world. People fled banana republics and oppressive governments to come here, because we weren’t that. When we become that, we are in big trouble.

We saw that through the Mueller investigation and the two impeachment efforts. It wasn’t about facts or wrong, but about finding anything to get Trump — and they still came up empty.

In the case of the prosecutors in New York going after Donald Trump and the Trump Organization, it’s been political from the start. The NY Attorney General even ran explicitly on a promise to go after Trump, again improperly not going after a particular crime, but going after the man.

The current Attorney General of NY specifically campaigned for office on a pledge to “investigate Trump businesses,” which raises the question of how it could possibly be denied that this prosecution has a “political” motivation. She’s fulfilling an explicit campaign pledge! pic.twitter.com/3AcrhFGLOp
