Charles Krauthammer said the main issue surrounding the Department of Justice scandal is the double standard with which the administration deals with leaks.
“I think you have to distinguish between the demand for a leak investigation and doing the unprecedented of naming a reporter as a co-conspirator,” said Krauthammer on Fox News' Special Report. Looking into what could be a national security threat is one thing, he said, but “the other type of leak, the type that would pump up the president,” is handled quite a bit differently.
“The issue is, was there a double standard?...Did anyone look into the obvious place where this would originate in the White House? Was anybody looked at?" Krauthammer asked. "So I think that the double standard is the real issue here."
