Trump says charging gun-brandishing St. Louis couple is abuse of power - White House

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump thinks the prosecutor who charged a Missouri couple with unlawful weapon use for pulling guns on protesters outside their home is abusing her power, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Tuesday.

Trump told McEnany that “it is absolutely absurd what is happening to the McCloskeys,” referring to the St. Louis couple, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, and that “this is an extreme abuse of power by the prosecutor,” she said.
