“Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer argued that the Clintons’ behavior would not be tolerated from any other political figure on Saturday’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on the Fox News Channel.
Asked about the unwillingness of prosecutors to look at the allegations in the book, Schweizer said that this was due to the fact that the book just came out and “people kind of expect from the Clintons that you’re going to get scandal. What I’ve encouraged people to do is look at these cases, take the name Clinton out of it and ask yourself, would you tolerate this from any other political figure? And I think the answer is no.”
He added, “I think the evidence, the fact pattern here is far more compelling than it was in the Governor of Virginia’s case, Senator Menendez in New Jersey, or Kitzhaber out in Oregon, who resigned. I think the fact pattern is far more compelling. … I think a prosecutor needs to look at this, I think the FBI needs to look at this, and I think we need to have Congressional committees that have subpoena powers to look at this.”
