Senate President Pro Tempore Kim Ward on President Trump Verdict

GREENSBURG – Senate President Pro Tempore Kim Ward (R-Westmoreland) issued the following statement regarding the verdict of President Donald Trump.

“It will be up to former President Trump to appeal to a higher court or accept the verdict and pay the penalty just as any other person facing a trial of their peers. The path forward seems obvious and the likelihood the upper court would overturn the lower court’s decision on merit is strong. The guilty verdict on all counts by the jury raises red flags, making this seem more like a persecution than a prosecution. It should be a wake-up call for Pennsylvanians that the rule of law and the permanency of our republic is at stake and no individual is immune to the consequences of a judicial system influenced by activism.”
