Trump Indictment Shows He Violated the Law and Endangered Our National Security and Must Be Prevented From Holding Office Again

WASHINGTON, D.C.In response to the unsealing of a federal indictment of Donald Trump earlier today, MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting issued the following statement:

“Donald Trump has regularly flouted and violated the law for much of his time as a political candidate and elected official. The criminal evidence unsealed in the indictment shows in painstaking detail that he acted as if he is above the law, while willfully and recklessly endangering our national security.

“Now is the time for Donald Trump to be held accountable. And MoveOn members will rightfully make those who enable Trump and refuse to call him out answer for their inaction. That’s why more than 150,000 MoveOn members have signed petitions calling for Trump to be disqualified from running for office again for his role in inciting insurrection. 

“No matter his front-runner status, Donald Trump does not belong on anyone’s ballot. He belongs in a courtroom.”
