Democratic operatives have insisted for much of Donald Trump’s presidency that “No one is above the law.” It’s one of their more cynically hypocritical lines of attack against him, since they clearly don’t mean that the rule of law should apply to their partisans, too.
Take, for instance, Hillary Clinton and her long-running – and thus far successful – efforts to ensure that she and her entourage are not held to the same standards and statutes that apply to everybody else. To that end, the former Secretary of State is frantically trying to overturn a federal judge’s order that she must be deposed by Judicial Watch about her illegal email server and its serial compromises of national security secrets.
The question occurs: Why on earth are the Trump administration’s Justice and State Departments helping Hillary get preferential, instead of equal, treatment under the law?
