Amid Wednesday’s extensive coverage of the new target letter for former President Trump’s January 6th case on CNN This Morning, anchor Phil Mattingly asked CNN political commentator Van Jones about the delay in prosecutions for the cases. Jones claimed that there was a “two tier justice system, and Trump is benefitting from it,” providing several comical alternate examples in an attempt to prove this and explaining what he thought Trump’s true motives might be.

Mattingly asked Jones about the complaints that Democrats had had over the past few years, after the Capitol insurrection in 2020, about the slow progress in the trial process for it. Specifically, he asked how this delay, and also the recent rush of indictments and pending cases against Trump, “resonates in terms of people.”
