Congresswoman Wilson’s Statement on Trump’s Indictment in his Effort to Overturn the 2020 Election

Today, Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson (FL-24) released the following statement regarding former President Trump’s indictment in his effort to overturn the 2020 election.

“The cornerstone of our democracy is the sacred right of every American citizen to cast their vote and have it count. We witnessed an unprecedented assault on this fundamental principle by former President Trump— the now thrice indicted, twice impeached, sued, insurrection inciter.

“No one is above the law.

“Today's indictment sends yet another resounding message that no one, no matter how powerful or influential, is above the law. Trump’s attempt to subvert the will of millions of voters cannot be ignored. I’m grateful our Justice Department is holding him responsible for trying to undermine the very bedrock of our democracy. 

“This indictment signals a strong commitment to accountability and preserving the people's trust in their government. 

“Justice will be served.”
