DNC on Trump Campaign Chairman Found Guilty of Multiple Crimes
August 21, 2018
DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement in response to Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, being found guilty of multiple crimes:
“Donald Trump brought a culture of corruption from his campaign to the White House. The special counsel’s investigation has never been a ‘witch hunt,’ and today’s verdict proves it. Paul Manafort wasn’t just Trump’s campaign chair, he was one of his most trusted advisors; the two have known each other for nearly four decades and reportedly spoke to each other nearly 20 times a day.
“As Trump escalates his attacks on the special counsel’s investigation, Republicans in Congress must join Democrats in standing up for the rule of law and ensuring that justice is served.”
