Scarborough Goes on Epic Rant Over Treatment of Clinton Scandals Compared to Other Politicians

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough went on an epic rant over the treatment of Hillary Clinton compared to other politicians Tuesday morning. Author Peter Schweizer was on the program to discuss his new book Clinton Cash, which outlines examples of foreign donors receiving favorable treatment after they made donations to the Clinton Foundation during Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State. Mika Brzenzski asked Schweizer whether if his motivations for the book were political, since the book’s release comes so close to Clinton’s campaign announcement. “I began this investigation last year because you have an unprecedented situation that the Obama administration recognized,” Schweizer said. Scarborough then ranted about double standard applied to the Clintons. “I worked with guys in Congress that went golfing, like, one or two times in Ireland, and then six months later, put a bill on the floor of the House and they went to jail—and we’re sitting here going, wait a second, maybe he just got paid three times the amount,” Scarborough said. “Maybe Belarus or telecom companies or maybe this, come on. We’re not naive babes in the woods. I know you’re playing this game of tough journalism, and that’s awesome. But Mika, Bob McDonnell—what Bob McDonnell did pales in comparison to what’s in this book. What Bob Menendez did pales in comparison to what’s in this book. The Clintons have made $150 million over the past decade because of contacts during public service. I will now sit back and let you ask the tough questions. I’m just curious, though, why are the Clintons held to a standard that Bob McDonnell’s not held to, that Bob Menendez is not held to, that all of these congressmen that get thrown into jail for going on a—going to a Redskins game or going on a golf trip, compare to $150 million?”
