Congressman Van Orden Condemns Outcome of Trump Trial

by | May 30, 2024

On Thursday afternoon, Congressman Derrick Van Orden released the following statement after a jury in New York erroneously affirmed the political prosecution of President Donald J. Trump with a guilty verdict.

“It is a dark day for our nation. I am truly disgusted by the verdict that has affirmed the sham prosecution of the Democrats’ political opponent. This decision by Democrats to institute a two-tiered system of justice has now put the United States on the same level as the Soviet Union. I remain committed to supporting President Donald J. Trump to victory in November and ensuring our justice system is held accountable for the clear bias they have presented through this process. This will not stand.”
