Due process promise is not the actions of a dictator

Andrew McCarthy:
Trump’s Special-Prosecutor Promise Is Not a Criminalization of Politics

The Obama Justice Department’s ‘investigation’ of Hillary Clinton was the real banana-republic event.
This looks like another attempt by the left to twist and distort the meaning of what Trump was saying.  A special prosecutor would have to comply with the due process requirements of the constitution.  I would give his critics a failing grade on this charge.
...
... Trump was not threatening to go after Clinton because she has the temerity to oppose him politically. He was committing to have a special prosecutor investigate Clinton for mishandling classified information, destroying government files, and obstruction of justice — criminal misconduct that has nothing to do with being a political adversary of Trump’s, and for which others who commit similar felonies go to jail.
...
This is just Democrats practicing the politics of fraud against their opponents.
