The Hillary defense; what hath it wrought?

‘Hillary Defense’ invoked by cop accused of trading favors for sex  
"Grant will probably not succeed in court.  But the fact that the plea is made, that it is heard, and that it reinforces the public’s skepticism that the legal and political systems are fair to ordinary people is what matters.  Faith in our political institutions is plummeting, and that is a dangerous situation."
"This is how the fish rots from the head down.  Standards crumble at all levels of society when the powerful and prominent are seen to get away with flouting the law.  Kaja Whitehouse writes in the New York Post:
A lawyer for one of the NYPD cops accused of doing favors for bribes – including mile-high sex with this hooker on a free trip to Las Vegas  said his client’s behavior was no worse than Hillary Clinton’s.
“It’s similar to what the FBI said about Hillary Clinton, and why she wasn’t charged,” said John Meringolo, a lawyer for James Grant, who pleaded not guilty in Manhattan federal court Wednesday. . . .

Hillary Clinton and the erosion of legitimacy  . . . "But are today's Americans ready to rise up and do what is necessary to prevent servitude?  Do Americans still consider themselves free citizens who are the sovereign?  Or do they consider themselves subjects of an all-powerful government that determines social justice through rules, regulations, and laws?  Are the people now willing for the political elite to have special privileges?  Or are they as strong, as God-fearing, and as courageous as the Americans of the 18th century?" . . .

Maybe the Democrats should start a Never Clinton movement . . . "Second, Mrs. Clinton, the FBI, Attorney General Lynch, and President Clinton's grandchildren chat are not passing the smell test for many voters, especially those independents who decide elections.  It's fair to say a lot of Americans have concluded that Mrs. Clinton got special treatment, or the kind of treatment that the average person working in the federal government would never get. " . . .
