Following the report of a criminal investigation into former-President Trump in Georgia, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington President Noah Bookbinder, a former federal corruption prosecutor, released the following statement:

“Last month we sent a criminal complaint to the Fulton County District Attorney laying out the multiple laws Donald Trump appeared to violate by pressuring Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to overturn the results of Georgia’s presidential election, and called on prosecutors to begin a criminal investigation into Trump. They are now doing exactly that. Trump’s conduct violates not only the law, but the foundation on which our democracy is built. He may have been able to evade facing criminal charges as president, but he is no longer president. We applaud Fulton County District Attorney Willis for launching this investigation and showing that no one is above the law.”
