May 30, 2024

House Republican Leader Vincent Candelora and Senate Republican Leader Stephen Harding issued the following statement on the Trump verdict:

HARTFORD, CT – “As attorneys, we have the utmost respect for the American justice system and share an unequivocal belief in the rule of law. As legislators, we do all we can to support the work of our judges, juries, and prosecutors in preserving the most fundamental institutions of our republic. However, we cannot ignore the fact that the events that have transpired in New York City point to a weaponization of those very institutions to achieve a political end. These events have created a highly troubling scenario which will invariably end up on appeal and raise serious Constitutional challenges. The one thing we are sure of is that our Constitution will prevail.”
