Liberal Washington Post columnist surprisingly worries Trump is the victim of double standard in NY fraud case

Liberal Washington Post columnist and associate editor Ruth Marcus wrote Tuesday that she was worried that former President Donald Trump was getting harsher treatment that “anyone else” in the New York fraud case against him.

“The rule of law means not allowing Trump to evade responsibility, criminal or civil, for his behavior. But it also entails not treating Trump more harshly than anyone else in similar circumstances, and I worry that is what is happening here,” she wrote.

Marcus said that while she believes Trump is a “fraudster,” the punishment the former president received was “unprecedented.” 

She also added that she would be “cheering if Trump is ordered to write a big check.”
