DPNM Chair Jessica Velasquez Statement on Trump Indictment
Albuquerque- Democratic Party of New Mexico Chair Jessica Velasquez released the following statement on the indictment of Donald Trump:
“The Republican Party stood by Donald Trump throughout his disastrous presidency, even through the January 6th insurrection, and despite his record, they will continue to lack the courage and moral fortitude to denounce him.
This indictment is a long overdue step in holding Trump accountable for his flagrant disregard for our laws and democracy. The legal system is finally holding him accountable for past transgressions, but it’s up to the voters to hold him accountable in his current run for President. American democracy is on the line and there is too much at stake. We can’t trust Trump or any of his MAGA protégés with the Presidency, or any elected office.”
