Schumer Statement On Supreme Court Rulings That President Trump Is Not Above The Law

July 9, 2020

Washington, D.C.— Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today released following statement after the Supreme Court ruled in Trump v. Vance and Trump v. Mazars USA, LLP that no one, not even the president, is above the law:

“No matter how much he wishes it to be true, President Trump is not king. In a devastating blow to President Trump and his enablers in the Republican party, the Supreme Court today upheld a fundamental tenet of our democracy that no one is above the law.

"Sadly, today’s rulings are a stark reminder that while President Trump is actively undermining our democracy, Senate Republicans and Attorney General Barr are not lifting a finger to stop him—something that is not lost on the American people.”
