Statement on the Indictment of Ex-President Donald J. Trump

“While Donald Trump and Republicans run from accountability, dedicated, serious public officials like Manhattan District Attorney Bragg follow the facts and the law wherever it may lead,” said County Leader Keith L.T. Wright.

“As we have now seen, that process has resulted in a grand jury of Trump’s peers moving forward with a formal indictment — the first for a former President of the United States. While it’s unfortunate for the Office of the Presidency that Trump ever sat in the Oval Office, this indictment is a positive sign that even the most powerful among us are not above the rule of law.”
