Letter: No consequences for the Clintons

There is a double standard for prosecution of Republicans and Democrats.

Dinesh D’Souza wrote a book and produced a movie, “Obama’s America: Unmaking the American dream,” which was critical of President Barack Obama.

D’Souza was sent to a community confinement center for eight months because he gave two friends $10,000 to give to a college friend’s political campaign.

Hillary and Bill Clinton can raise millions of dollars from foreign friends for their foundation and nothing is prosecuted. And Hillary Clinton is exonerated for using her private phone line for secret, confidential government business.

It is a disappointment, but predictable, that Hillary Clinton can violate the law with no consequences.
