A New York policeman on trial for corruption is now employing the “Hillary Clinton defense” by saying the charges against him should be dropped because he “didn’t intend” to break the law just like Hillary.
NYPD officer James Grant is in trouble for taking bribes, payments, favors, and special deals from several New York businessmen in exchange for essentially assigning officers to the businessmen to serve as their own private police detachment.
Grant’s lawyer, though, is claiming that, just like Hillary, he was unaware he was doing anything wrong and if Hillary was let off scot free, he should be given the same legal benefit.
“It’s similar to what the FBI said about Hillary Clinton, and why she wasn’t charged,” attorney John Meringolo said. “She was unaware she was committing a crime. Here, there is no crime whatsoever.”
Officer Grant and a handful of other officers are charged with conspiracy to commit honest-services fraud, honest-services wire fraud, conspiracy to pay and receive bribes and the payment and receipt of bribes, according to the New York Post.
In one charge, officer Grant is accused of accepting rides on a private jet and in at least one case having sex with a prostitute on the plane.
Some of the allegations came to light when the prostitute, Gabi Grecko, went public with her claims that she was passed around among several police officers.
Hooker Gabi Grecko says this is a photo of herself
taken on the very flight she alleges she had sex with officer Grant.
According to the indictment of Grant and NYPD Deputy Chief Michael Harrington, New York businessmen Jeremy Reichberg and Jona Rechnitz received “a private police force for themselves and their friends.”
In a previous interview, Grecko insisted that she didn’t think the plane ride would turn to a sexual orgy and thought she was just being hired to be a “sexy stewardess.”
“I didn’t think it would be as extreme as it was, but then because I obviously couldn’t get off the plane, I had to do what they were telling me,” Grecko told the Post last month. “More than one would try to get my attention at once. They were really creepy and very rude and offensive.”
“It was me on top the whole time. Front, behind, side. They all seemed really comfortable to take their pants off in front of each other and laugh about it. It’s like they’d done this before,” she said.
