(National Sentinel) Injustice: Former 2016 Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski underscored the fact that there are still two justice systems in America during an interview with Fox Business Wednesday, noting that only “Trump supporters” have been going to jail while “Hillary Clinton people” are given immunity.
In an interview with Trish Regan, Lewandowski discussed special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe and in particular, his filing earlier this week regarding POTUS Trump’s first national security adviser Michael Flynn, much of which was redacted.
Lewandowski pointed out that initially, according to what the country was told, Mueller was to look at “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
“We now know is that there was none of that,” he said, adding that “the only campaign that took money out of their campaign coffers and paid it to a foreign entity was the Clinton campaign.”
He noted that the Mueller investigation needs to come to an end “quickly” and that the American ought to be able to see the unredacted material the special counsel filed in court on Tuesday, which hinted that Flynn had provided “substantial assistance” with additional investigations beyond the Russia probe.
The special counsel “has spent two years and millions of dollars investigating something that never occurred,” Lewandowski said.
“Corey, you were there, you ran that campaign back in 2016,” Regan said. “Did you for two seconds — I know I asked you this before — did you for two seconds think there was any kind of collusion or conspiracy, if you would, between people you were working with on that campaign, your staff, and even outside the staff whoever it may be, and the Russians?”
“It never happened,” he responded. “That’s the most interesting part of this. Now we see people like George Papadopoulos, and Carter Page, people who had no role in the campaign decision making. They were literally volunteers… George Papadopoulos went to jail for lying to the FBI.”
That’s completely unfair, Lewandowski added.
“But that’s not the same criteria when its a Clinton person or Andy McCabe,” who was found to have lied to federal investigators at least three times, according to the Justice Department inspector general.
McCabe was also referred for criminal prosecution, but that hasn’t happened either.
“There are two separate sets of rules and I am not a conspiracy theorist but if you are a Trump supporter the FBI and the Department of Justice comes after you and if you are a Clinton supporter you get immunity,” he said.
Fair-minded Americans will find Lewandowski’s statements hard to argue, considering how many people were granted immunity by the FBI during its sort of investigation into Clinton’s criminal mishandling of classified emails. The end result was there was no one to charge except Clinton, and we know now that James Comey and Loretta Lynch (and Barack Obama) were never going to let that happen.
