Pence promises Justice Department changes if elected scaled | ltc-a

Speaking to host Chuck Todd, Pence promised sweeping reforms to the department’s leadership if elected, saying he would assemble a team « starting with an attorney general, an FBI director, other senior political appointees, Senate-approved of the United States, who are respected on both sides of the aisle, who are seen as men and women of integrity, who will apply the law fairly and evenly. »

« Lady Justice is blind, Chuck, » Pence told Todd. « And there are tens of millions of Americans who have reason to believe that the blinders have been taken off and that we haven’t seen equal treatment under the law. »

Pence argued that the allegations in the indictment against Trump are « serious » and « no one is above the law, » but said the prosecution decision « continues to fuel the notion among the American people that there are two standards of justice in this country. »
