Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley Speaks on The Donald Trump 34 Count Conviction

Jun. 10, 2024 – 09:26 – Democratic Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley spoke exclusively to theGrio on the 34 count felony conviction of former President Donald Trump. The one of the most notable members of the Squad, who refers to Trump as “the former occupant of the White House” said the ruling is “one step in the right direction of accountability.” However, after the conviction that was handed down in a New York Court House, Trump called the verdict “disgusting” and “rigged” in multiple instances while talking to the press. Several Republican leaders have supported Donald Trump and his thoughts about the outcome of the case to include Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Mike Johnson. A former Obama administration Justice Department official who does not wish to be identified calls their words in support of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee an “attack in essence on the rule of law, dangerous!” “Donald Trump is not someone being politically persecuted. Give me a break,” Pressley adamantly offered. Sentencing for Trump is slated for July 11th just days before the Republican National Convention. In the meantime, Trump vows an appeal to the jury decision before the sentencing. As the wait for each action Trump supporters are not happy and the concern about their possible actions against the system are more than real after the January 6th insurrection. Congresswoman Pressley was on the Hill during on January 6th. Remembering then and this moment she added”i am always concerned about the rhetoric of Donald Trump, who it insights and emboldens.”
