Harlem Rep. Espaillat Reacts: Supreme Court Puts A Dent In Trump’s Immunity Armor

July 1, 2024

Representative Adriano Espaillat issued a powerful statement today in response to the Supreme Court’s controversial decision granting former President Donald Trump immunity:

“Today’s ruling is dangerous and unprecedented. The Supreme Court’s partisan decision to grant Donald Trump any form of immunity threatens the rule of law in our country. However, it does not change the facts: Donald Trump tried to overthrow the government, denied the results of a free and fair election, and he must be held accountable for his actions. No one is above the law.”

“Espaillat’s words echo his commitment to justice and accountability …”
