Sullivan Statement on Verdict in President Trump’s New York Trial

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) today released the following statement regarding the verdict issued in the New York jury trial of former President Donald Trump.

“This is a very sad day for America and the rule of law. The conviction of a former President—the leading candidate for the White House—just months before the election sets a dangerous precedent and pushes our great nation even further into banana republic territory. This case, brought by a far-left, partisan local prosecutor who campaigned on getting Trump, exemplifies the old Soviet adage: Show me the man, I’ll show you the crime. President Trump should be exonerated on appeal. The 2024 presidential election should be decided at the ballot box, not by this unprecedented political prosecution. I trust that the American people will see through this gross abuse of our justice system.”
