These days, there is quite a lot of talk about former President Trump potentially being indicted. The indictment comes amid allegations of Trump breaching campaign finance law to give a payoff to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney and fixer, testified that this payout took place. However, the former president denies it. On multiple occasions, Trump stated he is being set up and falsely accused. He also maintains that the alleged affair with Stormy Daniels never happened.
Though as more light is shed on this situation, Brett Tolman, a former US attorney, has added a new perspective to what is presently going on, per Breitbart News.
Shedding New Light on the Situation
According to Tolman, when Hillary Clinton ran for president, her husband Bill Clinton paid Paula Jones $850,000 and then concealed the payment as a “legal fee.” However, rather than facing indictment, the Clinton campaign was simply hit with a fine.
Meanwhile, Trump, who is in a nearly identical situation, is now staring down a potential indictment. In further remarks, Tolman pointed out that Clintion’s campaign did, in fact, have a vested interest in making sure the public never learned about the $850,000 payment to Jones.
And the Hillary Campaign was actually fined for hiding the Steele Dossier payment under “legal fees” —essentially the same legal theory on the Stormy Daniels payment the DA is running criminal investigation of Trump. https://t.co/GLur8NWGyA

At the end of the day, it remains to be seen whether or not Trump is indicted. However, sources close to the former president allege that if he is indicted, he will willingly surrender, rather than having an arrest warrant issued.
For quite some time, many Trump supporters warned that this indictment is a political hit job, rather than a serious legal measure. There have also been red flags raised that those in power who dislike Trump want to dissuade big-money donors from supporting his 2024 presidential campaign.
Now, the revelation about the payment made during Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign only further highlights these points. Neither she, nor her husband, are looking at any sort of indictment.

"We are not involved in this and won't be involved in this. I have no interested in getting involved in some type of manufactured circus by some Soros DA. He's trying to do a political spectacle.… https://t.co/3zQRmz72lH pic.twitter.com/lCeCA37vnf

Naturally, this double standard is not being covered or picked up by the media at all. To the contrary, the focus is on Trump, the potential indictment, and potential other legal problems that the former president may be hit with in the weeks to come.
In the event that Trump does get indicted, time will reveal what comes next, how the public reacts, and what serious impacts this has as he campaigns for another term in the White House.
As things currently stand, there is still a lot of room for this situation to further develop.
