Media personality Megyn Kelly called out the political “double standard” of former President Donald Trump’s arraignment while top Democrat criminals face no accountability.
On SiriusXM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show,” the former Fox News anchor compared the lack of accountability for Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden, which evidence shows committed serious crimes, with Trump becoming the first former president to face criminal charges.
“Why don’t we know what Joe Biden did with Hunter Biden? Why don’t we know how he’s been compromised financially with respect to the doings of his son? Why isn’t Hunter Biden under arrest?” Kelly asked.
“In the case of Joe Biden, it’s because they won’t investigate. They have refused, refused to look into him in this relationship. And in the case of Hunter Biden, we have no answers. We don’t know why.”
Kelly argued the FBI’s raid of Mar-a-Lago and investigation of Trump’s possession of classified documents may be warranted but she finds it “aggravating” because Clinton never faced justice for more egregious offenses.
“I can’t get past — it’s Trump, that’s why. I’m not defending. If he got a subpoena and he had documents, that’s not OK. As a lawyer, you don’t have to persuade me. You’re supposed to treat subpoenas very respectfully,” Kelly said. “It’s just so aggravating because [Clinton’s] gotten away with so much.”
“It’s hard to get worked up about the Donald Trump subpoena. That’s where I am on it. It’s really hard to get worked up because it’s a double standard,” she added.
Kelly said Trump’s indictment was politically helpful to Trump but “horrible” for America.
“I think it’s horrible,” Kelly said. “It’s horrible for the country. And it’s gonna be horrible for him to go through. And it’s going to be horrible for us to go through.”
“[Clinton’s] been using lawyers to do her dirty work forever, and we just generally haven’t had a practice of criminalizing the behavior of somebody in her position. Yes, we’ve sniffed around the lawyers from time to time, but this is, everything with [Trump] is different.”
