Two Fox News contributors engaged in a heated verbal brawl on Thursday over comparisons between the FBI’s differing treatment of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
As The Daily Caller reports:
Two Fox News contributors got into a shouting match Thursday over the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) treatment of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton compared to former President Donald Trump.
Fox News contributor Jessica Tarlov said the Republicans are “unfit” to regain control of Congress due to their lamenting over the FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on Monday. Contributor Sean Duffy made the case that Trump and Republicans have continuously been targeted, ranging from the Russian collusion investigation to the raiding of the former president’s home.
“To think that Donald Trump is being treated fair, I think Republicans have a long track record to go ‘no, the government and Democrats have not treated him fairly.’ And Jessica says this is about policy. You’re right, it is about policy,” Duffy responded. “Democrats have passed their agenda and their agenda has been horrible for the American people. Americans are getting crushed by the Democrat agenda.”
Sean Duffy: “Did they raid [Hillary Clinton’s] home?! Did they actually come with machine guns to her home?!”
Jessica Tarlov: They didn’t need to! Because she cooperated like a normal human being!”
Duffy: “She did not cooperate.”
Tarlov: “Yes she did!” pic.twitter.com/eGpfVh8KXP

Tarlov argued the former president stored highly classified information in the 15 boxes in Mar-a-Lago. The National Archives and Records Administration requested for Trump and his associates to hand over the boxes of White House documents, leading them to receive some “classified national security information,” sparking an investigation by the Department of Justice, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Many political figures, on both the left and the right, have condemned the raid and alleged that it was largely politically motivated.
