Trump To The Rescue For Gun-Toting St. Louis Couple?

  • St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner slammed President Trump and Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R) on Tuesday for attempting to meddle in a case involving a couple who waved their guns at a crowd of peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters.
  • “Today, both the Governor and Donald Trump came after me for doing my job and investigating a case,” Gardner said in a statement.
  • On Thursday, a lawyer representing the couple told TPM that he had been in contact with the White House amid Gardner’s investigation.
  • “I’ve been in direct contact with the (White House) chief of staff,” Watkins said when asked if he had heard from the White House regarding the investigation.
