White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders reacted on Friday to special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of Trump associate and long-time GOP political operative Roger Stone by questioning whether former Obama administration officials were ever going to be held to the same standard as people associated with the current occupant of the Oval Office.

Earlier in an interview with CNN on Friday, Sanders noted, “This has nothing to do with the president and certainly nothing to do with the White House. This is something that has to do solely with that individual.”

Stone was indicted on seven counts in connection with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, The Hill reported. He was arrested at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida early on Friday morning; a CNN crew, oddly, was the only media on hand during the arrest.

The seven-count indictment alleges that Stone made “multiple false statements” during testimony before the House Intelligence Committee regarding his actions and relationship with “Organization 1,” which is widely believed to be WikiLeaks. He’s also been charged with obstruction.

When pressed further about Stone’s connection to POTUS Donald Trump, Sanders said he Sanders is “somebody who has been a consultant for dozens of Republican presidents and candidates and members of Congress.”

She also noted that conversations Stone and the president had during the 2016 campaign were not at all related to the charges that have been brought against Stone, who got his start in presidential politics working for the Nixon administration.

“I think a bigger question is, if this is the standard, will this same standard apply to people like Hillary Clinton, James Comey, James Clapper?” Sanders noted. “Will we see these same people who we know have also made false statements, will that same standard apply?”

Two of Clinton’s closest aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, are known to have made false statements to FBI investigators regarding their boss’ private email server. They claimed to agents in 2016 they did not know anything about it but emails from 2009 and beyond indicate otherwise.

As for Clapper, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, he knowingly lied to the Senate Intelligence Committee on March 12, 2013, in response to a question from Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), who asked whether intelligence officials collect data on Americans. Clapper said no, but in the months shortly thereafter “a series of news stories fueled by leaks from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden revealed that wasn’t the case,” Politifact reported.

Comey, meanwhile, testified before Congress in 2017 that he had never authorized the FBI to provide anonymous sources for news stories about the Russia or Clinton investigations. But subsequent sworn statements by his one-time deputy, Andrew McCabe, said otherwise.

And following Comey’s announcement that he would not be recommending criminal prosecution of Clinton in July 2016, Republican lawmakers sent the Justice Department a criminal referral a few days later over Clinton’s sworn testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, The New York Times reported. She allegedly made multiple false statements during testimony regarding her email server and what the FBI had found in its investigation of it.
