Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton slammed President Donald Trump on Tuesday after he lashed out at a federal judge on Twitter over longtime ally Roger Stone’s criminal sentencing.
“Is this the Judge that put Paul Manafort in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT, something that not even mobster Al Capone had to endure? How did she treat Crooked Hillary Clinton?” Trump tweeted on Tuesday night.
“Just asking!” he added.
US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is presiding over Stone’s case, has also presided over the criminal case that Special Counsel Robert Mueller brought against the former chairman of Trump’s 2016 campaign, Paul Manafort, and his associate, Rick Gates, as part of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Shortly after Trump dragged Clinton into his angry late-night tweetstorm, Clinton responded by comparing him to a “fascist.”
“Do you realize intimidating judges is the behavior of failed-state fascists?” she asked.
“Just asking!” Clinton added.
