If Hillary does something wrong, is the Trump administration just supposed to give her a pass because he ran against her in the election? That seems to be the position of the folks at MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

Morning Joe: Investigating Clintons Is ‘What Joseph Stalin Would Do’
After hyperventilating about the latest Trump-Russia story and claiming that Donald Trump Jr. talking to Wikileaks and Julian Assange was yet more evidence of “collusion,” on Tuesday, the Morning Joe crew were horrified to learn of the possibility that the Justice Department might appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Bill and Hillary Clinton for engaging in pay-for-play corruption with the Russian government.
Host Joe Scarborough was especially troubled by this development. He declared that investigating the politically powerful Democrats for criminal activity was a “horrific” violation of “constitutional norms” and “the rule of law.” He even insisted that going after people for possibly breaking laws is “what Joseph Stalin would do.”…
Mike, we’re gonna have — first of all, we’re gonna get how horrific this is — what a horrific precedent this would set if Donald Trump goes after his political opponent this way – uses the Justice Department, pressures the Justice Department, pressures the Attorney General to do this. This is what happens — this is what Joseph Stalin would do. This is what tyrants have done for years, is sic their people on political opponents.

What a joke. This is MSNBC’s “Conservative” show. It’s laughable.
