DENVER: Responding to the verdict in the business records falsification case against former President Donald Trump in New York, with a jury finding Trump guilty on all 34 counts, ProgressNow Colorado, the state’s largest multi-issue progressive advocacy organization, released the following statement:

“No one–political candidate, elected official, private citizen or even Donald Trump–is above the law,” said ProgressNow Colorado executive director Sara Loflin. “Trump’s falsification of business records to conceal his ‘hush money’ payments expose Trump’s contempt for the rule of law and dishonesty with his own family, and disqualify Trump from ever holding the nation’s highest office again. In 2020, Trump lied to voters and interfered in elections to hold onto power, and throughout this criminal trial he has done the same.”

“This was a jury of ordinary Americans who evaluated the evidence, ignored threats from Trump’s dirty lawyers and dirty politicians like Lauren Boebert, and rendered a verdict based on the facts of the case,” said Loflin. “This successful criminal prosecution of Trump upholds the intention of the founding fathers that neither billionaires nor corrupt politicians are above the law. Trump’s attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election and alleged theft of classified information must be the next steps. This is just the beginning of the fight to hold Donald Trump accountable for his crimes, and our nation’s future depends on the rule of law prevailing. The safety of our country and communities depends on politicians not being above the law.”
