TOP: “Justice is finally catching up to Donald Trump”

The following statement is from Brianna Brown, Texas Organizing Project (TOP) Co-Executive Director, in response to former President Donald Trump being found guilty on all 34 felony counts in his New York hush money trial:

“Justice is finally catching up to Donald Trump.

“He can whine and gaslight the public all he wants, but the fact remains that Trump – a coup-plotting, twice-impeached racist who’s racked up four criminal indictments – has rightfully been found guilty on 34 felony counts by a jury of his peers.

“Meanwhile, here in Texas, MAGA loyalists Greg Abbott, Dan Patrick, Ken Paxton, and Ted Cruz, are taking to social media to deflect and provide political cover for a con man who attempted to overturn an election and who incited a horde of white supremacists to storm the U.S. Capitol.

“No matter what we look like or where we come from, each and every one of us deserves elected leaders who will defend our democracy and fairly govern with integrity. Any official who lies to the American people, stokes violence and division, and refuses to take responsibility for the harm they cause is unfit to represent us. 

“While Trump’s self-inflicted legal woes continue, TOP will be in Black and Latino neighborhoods across Texas this fall, engaging with voters at their doorstep and countering his white nationalist MAGA agenda with a bold, transformative #TexasForAll vision where progressive, people-powered candidates uphold our rights and freedoms.”
