Fredericksen Discusses Trump’s Demands to Investigate Hillary Clinton

25 July 2017 USA Today News

Partner Scott Fredericksen told USA Today in an article, “Analysis: Trump’s Demand for AG Jeff Sessions to Investigate Hillary Clinton Is An Ethical Minefield,” that President Trump’s latest attempt to force the Justice Department to investigate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email is “unprecedented.”

“The suggestion that he wants to prosecute and imprison a political rival crosses a very bold and historical line that establishes the independence of the Justice Department,” Fredericksen said. “That line is what separates our American democracy from a third-world dictatorship. A very important line may have been crossed here.”
