President Trump said that the treatment of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has been “very unfair,” in comparison to how the FBI treated rival Hillary Clinton.
“I feel badly for Gen. Flynn. I feel very badly. He’s led a very strong life,” Mr. Trump said to reporters outside the White House. “I will say this, Hillary Clinton lied many times to the FBI and nothing happened to her. Flynn lied, and they destroyed his life. I think it’s a shame.”
Mr. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in a deal to give full cooperation to special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Hillary Clinton on the 4th of July weekend, went to the FBI, not under oath, it was the most incredible thing anyone anyone in Washington has ever seen.
She lied many times, nothing happened to her.
Some lies are apparently good; others, not so much.
