Now that former President Donald Trump has been indicted for racketeering and other alleged crimes related to attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election in Georgia, conservative voices are arguing the criminal case brought by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is unfair and partisan because Stacey Abrams, a Democrat, essentially did the same thing with no consequence.


Svante Myrick, president and CEO of the progressive advocacy group People For the American Way, also slammed comparisons between Trump and Abrams, as well as mentions of former Democratic presidential nominee Clinton.

“Hillary Clinton conceded the next day. Trump didn’t,” Myrick said during a Tuesday press call reacting to Trump’s indictment.

He continued: “Hillary Clinton never called a secretary of state … She didn’t text them. She didn’t convene dozens of hundreds of meetings and phone calls with co-conspirators in an attempt to pressure election officials.”

“She did not do a single thing that is listed in this indictment,” Myrick added, “and neither did Stacey Abrams. And neither did anybody else in power in the Democratic Party.”
