South Dakota leaders react to former President Trump convicted on all 34 counts

SOUTH DAKOTA(HubCityRadio)- On Thursday, a jury in New York City found former President Trump guilty of all 34 felony counts of falsefying business records.

Leadership representing South Dakota offered their reactions to it.

Governor Kristi Noem tweeted the following:

“Massively conflicted, Biden donor and Liberal judge + stacked jury with unconstitutional jury instructions + radical leftist prosecutor = wrongful conviction. President Trump did nothing wrong, and even the liberal media knows it. The judge violated Trump’s constitutional rights and did everything in his power to get this outcome despite the clear evidence Trump was innocent. No doubt Trump will be easily vindicated soon as the case will obviously be overturned on appeal.”

Senator John Thune tweeted the following:

“I’ve been on a flight, but just landed and saw the news. This case was politically motivated from the beginning, and today’s verdict does nothing to absolve the partisan nature of this prosecution. Regardless of outcome, more and more Americans are realizing that we cannot survive four more years of Joe Biden. With President Trump in the White House and a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate, we can finally end the disastrous Biden-Schumer agenda that’s crushing American families and businesses.”

Senator Mike Rounds reacted by saying this was politically motivated.(audio from KELO)

Congressman Dusty Johnson released the following statement:

“I’ve had concerns about this prosecution for a while, and it’s not just me. Numerous legal experts from across the political spectrum are suggesting the convictions will likely be overturned on appeal.  The courts owe the American people swift resolution of the former president’s appeal. Regardless of the outcome, Americans will decide our next president when they head to the polls in November.”
