When Clinton Donors Prosecute And Judge Trump Associates

This is what a rigged system looks like

Daniel Greenfield

In May, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson dismissed a lawsuit by the families of the victims of Benghazi against Hillary Clinton. Judge Jackson decided that the families couldnít sue Hillary either for wrongful death or for defamation. That isnít too surprising as Jackson is a former Clinton donor who had been appointed by Obama. And a Clinton donor should never have been ruling on a Clinton case.

But now Judge Jackson will be presiding over the Paul Manafort case.

Presiding over Manafortís indictment is Judge Deborah A. Robinson. Judge Robinsonís most prominent previous case was the Berger trial. Sandy Berger, Bill Clintonís former National Security Adviser, stole classified documents about the terror failures of the Clinton administration, hid documents under a construction trailer, lied about taking them and destroyed some of them.

People have gone to jail for doing a whole lot less with classified documents. But not Clinton associates.

Sandy Berger was sentenced to two years of probation, 100 hours of community service and a fine.

Judge Robinson had presided over the ďScooterĒ Libby indictment. Libby was sentenced to 30 months in jail. Robinson may have had little to do with that final outcome. And may have had limited control over the eagerness of some in the DOJ to give Sandy Berger a pass. If nothing else, Robinson did end up raising the fine that Berger had to pay. But Berger still got a slap on the wrist and Libby didnít.

FBI Director Christopher Wray had announced the slap on the wrist for Berger in his former capacity as Assistant Attorney General. And had declined to discuss the investigation while in progress. President Bush had wanted action, but the FBI had cheerfully dismissed the seriousness of the investigation.

And thatís just the way that it seems to go for Democrats and the way that it is for Republicans.

Itís not hard to see why. Take Judge Beryl Howell.

Howell is an Obama appointee and a former Leahy adviser. Beryl and her husband are both Dem donors. Sheís also a pal of Obamaís former DOJ boss, Lorretta Lynch. And of Andrew Weissmann.

Weissmann, an Obama donor, is a key member of Muellerís team.

And Judge Howell gave Mueller his grand jury and decided that Manafort wasnít entitled to attorney-client privilege. It was an extraordinary and troubling decision. And its legitimacy canít help but be questioned when it comes from a partisan Dem figure.

It was seemingly Weissman, Howellís old friend, who decided to shred Manafortís attorney-client privilege. And Weissman has been described as being very friendly with Loretta Lynch.

ďAbsent the good will of his friends Loretta Lynch and Bob Mueller, it is inconceivable that his DOJ or FBI career would be have been resuscitated," a former prosecutor was quoted as saying.

Manafort may be guilty, but itís not hard to see the problem with an opposition party, prosecuting, trying and convicting its political opponents while exonerating its own operatives.

The Mueller team already includes no shortage of Clinton and Obama donors. Jeannie Rhee is a Clinton donor who represented the Clinton Foundation. Aaron Zebley had represented Justin Cooper, a senior Clinton adviser, who helped run Hillary's email server. James Quarles, Rush Atkinson and Elizabeth Prelogar are Hillary donors. Andrew Weissmann and Brandon Van Grack are Obama donors.
