Rep. Grijalva Statement on Former President Trump’s Federal Indictment

WASHINGTON – Today, Representative Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) issued the following statement:

“Our country is setting important history with this indictment: the unprecedented announcement of federal criminal charges against former president Donald Trump demonstrates that our democracy and independent judicial system are strong and will not waiver in the face of corruption and abuses of power. As the evidence reflects, Donald Trump purposefully misled federal agents and his own lawyers, ignored a federal subpoena, and tried to hide the location of highly sensitive and classified national security materials.”

“These charges are serious and include obstructing justice and violating the Espionage Act. These allegations stand in stark contrast to the classified documents discovered in the Biden and Pence residences’ who cooperated fully with federal authorities. The former president will receive the same constitutional rights as everyone else to have his case heard by a judge and jury of his peers.”
