Tom Perez on the Indictments Of Trump Campaign Chair Paul Manafort and His Deputy Rick Gates For Conspiracy Against United States

In response to the indictments of former Trump campaign Chairman Paul Manafort and Deputy Campaign Manager Rick Gates, DNC Chair Tom Perez issued the following statement:

“The Chairman of Donald Trump’s campaign and his deputy have been charged with conspiracy against the United States, money laundering, and making false statements – all related to their work to promote a pro-Putin regime. Paul Manafort and Rick Gates ran Trump’s campaign and continued to be a part of his inner circle after Election Day. This underscores the seriousness of the investigation into Donald Trump’s ties to Russia. It’s time for Republicans to commit to protecting this investigation and preserving the rule of law.”
