Michael Cohen’s Guilty Plea For Hush Payments Involving Donald Trump’s Affairs

DNC on Michael Cohen’s Guilty Plea For Hush Payments Involving Donald Trump’s Affairs

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement in response to Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer and a former deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee, pleading guilty to multiple crimes:

“No one was closer to Donald Trump than Michael Cohen. As his longtime lawyer and ‘fixer,’ Cohen was at the center of Trump’s inner circle, and today he admitted to breaking the law at Trump’s direction in order to influence the 2016 presidential election. The seriousness of this development cannot be overstated. The culture of corruption that Donald Trump brings with him everywhere is a disgrace to the presidency and a threat to our democracy.”

Trump Campaign Chairman Found Guilty of Multiple Crimes

DNC on Trump Campaign Chairman Found Guilty of Multiple Crimes

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement in response to Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, being found guilty of multiple crimes:

“Donald Trump brought a culture of corruption from his campaign to the White House. The special counsel’s investigation has never been a ‘witch hunt,’ and today’s verdict proves it. Paul Manafort wasn’t just Trump’s campaign chair, he was one of his most trusted advisors; the two have known each other for nearly four decades and reportedly spoke to each other nearly 20 times a day.

“As Trump escalates his attacks on the special counsel’s investigation, Republicans in Congress must join Democrats in standing up for the rule of law and ensuring that justice is served.”

Social Security Anniversary

DNC on Social Security Anniversary

DNC Chair Tom Perez and DNC Seniors Council Chair Steve Regenstreif released the following statement celebrating the anniversary of President Franklin Roosevelt signing the Social Security Act into law:

“For more than 80 years, Social Security has provided economic security to generations of Americans. Millions of retirees, working families, and Americans with disabilities rely on the Social Security benefits they have earned so they can live and retire with the dignity they deserve.

“While Democrats are fighting to protect and expand Social Security, Donald Trump and Republicans have threatened to privatize and cut it. They’ve voted to increase the retirement age, slash Social Security benefits, and gut the program’s protections for injured and disabled workers. And they’re using the Trump tax bill, which adds nearly $2 trillion to the deficit, as an excuse to make deep cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and other vital programs.

“Democrats are proud to be the party that created Social Security, and we are proud to mobilize working, disabled, and retired Americans to vote for candidates who will be champions for Social Security this November.”
