"Backfired | The Briefing"

Voiceover, Dialog, Spoken Text, Script, or Lyrics

There's all kinds of folks watching this at home are being told, "well, lots of other cases were prosecuted and she wasn't." I want them to know that's not true.  
Was there a double standard? 
No. In fact, I think, my entire goal was to avoid a double standard. To avoid what sometimes prosecutors call "celebrity hunting," and doing something for a famous person that you would never do for an ordinary Joe or Jane.  
I know from 30 years, there's no way anybody at the Department of Justice is bringing a case against John Doe or Hillary Clinton for the second time in a hundred years, based on those facts.  
As a non-lawyer, as a non-investigator, it would appear to me you have got a hell of a case.  
And I'm telling you we don't, and I hope people will take the time to understand why.

Written Text

Four moments that show how the GOP's email hearing backfired: 
1. On their conspiracy theory that Clinton got "special treatment." 
All kind of folks watching this at home are being told, "Well, lots of other cases were prosecuted and she wasn't. I want them to know that's not true.  
2. On whether Clinton benefitted from a "double standard." 
Was there a double standard? 
No. In fact, I think, my entire goal was to avoid a double standard.  
To avoid what sometimes prosecutors call "celebrity hunting," and doing something for a famous person that you would never do for an ordinary Joe or Jane. 
3. On whether there's a case here. 
I know from 30 years, there's no way anybody at the Department of Justice is bringing a case against John Doe or Hillary Clinton for the second time in a hundred years, based on those facts.  
4. On whether there's a case here...again. 
As a non-lawyer, as a non-investigator, it would appear to me you have got a hell of a case. 
I'm telling you we don't and I hope people will take the time to understand why.  
Well, you can't say they didn't try.
