On Monday morning, Paul Manafort and Rick Gates turned themselves into the FBI. The two have been indicted on a slew of charges, including conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading US Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) statements. If convicted the two are looking at years in prison, but the right doesn’t care about that, instead they want to know why Hillary isn’t being indicted for the fake crimes they have made up. As news continues to break on the arrests, Twitter is full of screaming right-wingers:
Interesting, Paul Manafort & Rick Gates indicted, yet Hillary Clinton (did far worse), still walks free. Injustice. #ManafortMonday

Apparently, Trump-bro here doesn’t realize who runs the Justice Department. Hint: it ain’t Democrats.

They are OUTRAGED, y’all!

How much did Hillary kill to continue walking free?

Hillary killed ALL the people!
There are more, but my absolute favorite is from “President” Trump, himself:
Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren’t Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????

Yeah, the indictment completely blows that out of the water. Manafort and Gates are being charged with crimes from 2006 through 2017, but facts are hard.
