For Immediate Release
NEW YORK, NY – Today, former President Donald Trump was indicted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and the grand jury. This comes following the completion of a grand jury hearing from final witnesses.
Congressman Jamaal Bowman Ed.D. (NY-16) released the following statement:
“No one in this country is above the law – including former President Trump. Being indicted for falsifying business records with hush money is only the beginning of being held accountable for his crimes. Trump attempted to illegally overturn election results in Georgia and worked to incite the insurrection at the Capitol, both in an effort to overthrow our government to advance his fascist cause. His continued calls for protests following his arrest are just another dog whistle for his followers: destroy our democracy. Republicans will continue to claim this was a political arrest, but they can’t continue to hide behind their lies, misinformation, and racist attacks towards Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. It’s time that we ensure Trump is banned from running for any public office again and from there, finally take action to fix our democracy.”
