Blackburn Statement On Trump Arraignment

April 4, 2023

U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after the arraignment of President Donald Trump in New York. 

“The American people see this for what it is — political prosecution,” said Senator Blackburn. “Soros-backed DA Alvin Bragg is allowing violent criminals to run free in his city while weaponizing the legal system in an attempt to take down a former President. Make no mistake: if the former President’s name were anything but ‘Trump,’ he would not be facing these charges. After Hillary Clinton violated federal election law when she covered up how her campaign spent thousands of dollars to secretly spy on President Trump, she was handed a slap on the wrist. Today’s arraignment is proof that there are two tiers of justice. If they can do this to Trump, they can do it to you. This is fundamentally un-American.”
