White House aide Kellyanne Conway asserted on Sunday that President Donald Trump is being mistreated by a “two-tier justice system.”
During an interview on FOX News Sunday, host Chris Wallace asked Conway for the president’s reaction to a Justice Department decision not to prosecute former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who was forced to correct misstatements to the inspector general.
“The president recognizes, as many people do, it feels like there’s a two-tiered criminal justice system,” Conway opined. “If you’re President Trump or people associated with him, those prosecutions have gone one way.”
Conway went on to say that McCabe is a “serial liar whether he’s prosecuted or not.”

‘Like George W. Bush after 9/11’: Kayleigh McEnany declares Trump Bible photo op a historic moment
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday defended the use of force against protesters in order to clear way for President Donald Trump's photo op at St. John's Episcopal Church.
At her daily press briefing, McEnany was asked why it was necessary for Trump to walk to the church, where held up a Bible.
McEnany suggested that Trump's photo op had been a historic moment.
"This was a very important moment," she explained. "I would note that through all of time, we've seen presidents and leaders across the world who have had leadership moments and very powerful symbols that were important for a nation to see at any given time, to show a message of resilience and determination."
When police killed Breonna Taylor in her own bed it wasn’t caught on video
Whatever you think about the unrest gripping this country–whether you’re outraged by cops’ across America brutally repressing peaceful protesters or the people breaking windows and looting businesses–the proximate cause was officer Derek Chauvin, who was still on the job despite being named in 18 previous complaints, slowly murdering George Floyd on the street–compressing his throat for 8 minutes and 46 seconds–as other officers looked on and a small crowd screamed that Chauvin was killing him. That video quickly went viral and here we are.
US suspends flights by Chinese airlines in spat with Beijing
Washington on Wednesday ordered the suspension of all flights by Chinese airlines into and out of the United States after Beijing failed to allow American carriers to resume services to China.
The move adds to a growing set of tension points between the world's two biggest economies in the aftermath of the coronavirus crisis.
The US action, which takes effect June 16, but could be implemented sooner if President Donald Trump orders it, affects four Chinese civilian carriers, including Air China and China Eastern Airlines, the Department of Transportation said.
"US carriers have asked to resume passenger service, beginning June 1st. The Chinese government's failure to approve their requests is a violation of our Air Transport Agreement," the department said in a statement.
