Senator Carper’s Statement on the Indictment of Donald Trump

Today, U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del.) released the following statement on the indictment of former President Donald Trump by a Manhattan grand jury:

“No one is above the law—not even a sitting president or a former president—but our justice system provides everyone the presumption of innocence and the right to a fair trial. As we learn more about the grand jury indictment of Donald Trump next week and in the weeks to come, I urge all Americans to respect those foundational principles of our justice system, and focus on the facts of this case.”
