President says Winner’s crime is ‘small potatoes’ compared to those of Hillary Clinton
President Donald Trump has called the sentencing of ex-NSA contractor Reality Winner “so unfair,” comparing the case to last year’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified material.
Trump argued that the federal government’s actions against Winner constituted a double standard in a Friday morning tweet aimed at Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“Ex-NSA contractor to spend 63 months in jail over ‘classified’ information,” the president said. “Gee, this is ‘small potatoes’ compared to what Hillary Clinton did! So unfair Jeff, Double Standard.”
