Ben Stein: "Fitzgerald a thug"

Tucker transcript

CARLSON: But it looks bad, though. I mean, it looks bad. Here you have a prosecutor who apparently...

STEIN: Of course it looks bad.

CARLSON: ... is holding out for hard time. You have him claiming he‘s caught Scooter Libby in seven separate documentable lies.

STEIN: You know something? You know something? If you—I hope I‘m not excessively criminal person, but if you—if you were giving me 30, 40, 50 phone calls a day, conversations with people, then called me in before a grand jury and said to recount what happened in each of those conversations two years later, I‘m sure you would catch me in 700 inconsistencies.

That is just standard business as usual. It is standard business as usual to pass out leaks to reporters in Washington. This prosecuting business as usual in Washington is just a way to break the political process down, and make it into an illegal, criminal process. It doesn‘t have any role in the Constitution. This guy is a thug. This Fitzgerald is a thug.

Outing a CIA agent, not to mention smearing a man's wife is standard business? So what does that make Nixon, Ben? (hat tip KF)
