On Sunday, Ron Fournier, a former Washington bureau chief for the Associated Press, issued a tweet in which he said that breaking the law to help Democrat Hillary Clinton “is the right thing to do.” Fournier was referring to Donald Trump’s tax forms published by the New York Times without his permission.

Naturally, it didn’t sit too well with many.
@ron_fournier Right thing? What about Hillary and her breaking Federal Law with the emails? Don't here you demanding prosecution?
— PatrickPu (@PatrickPulatie) October 2, 2016
Apparently that doesn’t matter. Nor does it matter that Hillary Clinton used the same loophole in her taxes.
@ron_fournier wow, really? So breaking the law is justifies as long as it gets the result we desire? Wow.

That’s pretty much the argument Fournier appears to be making.

The answer to that is simple. According to operatives of the Democrat-media complex (formerly known as “reporters”), anything is justified as long as it hurts GOP nominee Donald Trump.

Essentially, the United States is no longer a nation of laws, but of people — with some seemingly more equal than others.
In another tweet, he said:
We can agree:
1 Law forbids release of tax docs
2 DJT's were released
3 They show he failed in biz, dodged taxes in way he condemned
— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) October 3, 2016
Actually, they didn’t show that he “failed” as Fournier suggests, but that he perhaps had a bad year. It happens to a lot of business owners and he didn’t “dodge” paying taxes, he used a legal loophole — the same thing Hillary Clinton did.
And, by the way, it turns out that George Soros also used a loophole to avoid paying billions in taxes.
But don’t expect Fournier to get upset about that…
Exit question: If breaking the law to help Hillary is now the right thing to do, would Fournier be okay with voter fraud? Or worse?
