Pollster and Democratic strategist Caddell told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Matt Boyle on Tuesday that he’s “not sure it’s a good idea” for President-elect Donald Trump to forgo appointing a special prosecutor to pursue possible charges against Hillary Clinton after he assumes office in January.

“I think we’ve got a division here,” said Caddell, “on the one hand not looking like a banana republic, throwing our opponents in jail. … But on the other hand, the rule of law here has been terribly abused.”

“But I do think when you’ve got three-quarters of the American people who believe that there are two standards of justice, one for the rich and powerful like the Clintons and one for the rest of us, that that’s a problem,” he said.

Caddell called the investigation under the Obama administration “one of the worst-handled investigations of all time.”

Breitbart News Daily airs on SiriusXM Patriot 125 weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Eastern.
