Washington, D.C.–Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today spoke on the Senate floor regarding the indictment of Donald Trump. Below are Senator Schumer’s remarks, which can also be viewed here:
Last Friday, the Department of Justice announced Donald Trump had been indicted on 37 counts related to his mishandling of classified documents.
One only has to listen to the statements from former Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton and Trump’s former Attorney General to know just how serious this indictment is.
As I’ve said before, no one is above the law, including Donald Trump.
This case must be allowed to play out through the legal process, without outside political or ideological interference. I encourage both supporters and critics of Donald Trump to maintain the peace and let the justice system do its work.
