Fox News’ Jesse Watters reacted to the big Trump campaign indictment news today by arguing that whatever they did, Hillary Clinton was much worse.

Watters was on The Five today to discuss the criminal allegations against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, as well as George Papadopoulos‘ guilty plea for lying to the FBI. The Watters World host argued that none of today’s charges are a “slam dunk” against the White House, and investigators might be trying to squeeze Papadopoulos for more information.

“It predates him joining the Trump campaign,” Watters said. “Trump was not mentioned in the indictment. There was no collusion, nothing about hacking the election. I think the real issue is Papadopoulos… What he did, Hillary did ten times worse.”

Watters continued to remind everyone that the Clinton campaign and the DNC helped fund Fusion GPS’ infamous dossier on Trump, while Papadopoulos was “some 30-year-old overly ambitious guy who tried to dig up dirt and failed.”
