As the Republican Party decried the “travesty” of former President Donald Trump’s arraignment, Democrats responded with a message of justice for all.
ABC News reported that Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration “believes in the rule of law and that justice benefits all of us” when asked about the indictment of the former president. However, Vice President Kamala Harris, who is often vocal on political matters, ignored a question about the indictment when asked by a reporter.
Meanwhile, the Republican Party blasted the New York Grand Jury’s decision, with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy calling the indictment a “travesty of justice” and said that the Department of Justice had “abused their power” by charging the former president. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell echoed McCarthy’s sentiment, saying that the indictment was a “political move” and that “the Justice Department has no business criminalizing a former president.”
Amid the controversy, DBUNK performed a fact-checking analysis and found that the article is Partially Factual. The article accurately reports the opinions of various politicians from both sides of the aisle. However, the article misleads readers by implying that President Joe Biden has remained silent on the indictment of former President Donald Trump when in fact, the White House explicitly expressed that it would refuse to comment on any matters surrounding the indictment.
