Majority Leader Schumer Floor Remarks On Former President Donald Trump’s Felony Conviction

Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today spoke on the Senate floor on the felony conviction of former President Donald Trump. Below are Senator Schumer’s remarks, which can also be viewed here:

Last Thursday, a jury found former President Donald Trump guilty of thirty-four counts of falsifying business records as part of a hush money scheme. Former President Donald Trump is now a convicted felon.

The most important takeaway from this case is that nobody is above the law, including Donald Trump. The former president went through the same legal process that all Americans go through, he was tried according to the facts and the law, and was found guilty by a jury of his peers.

As Donald Trump considers his next steps, there should continue to be no outside political influence, intimidation, or interference in the case. I encourage Mr. Trump’s supporters and critics alike to let the process move forward according to the law.
