"That’s not to say we can’t be simultaneously committed to a fair process and celebrate the indictment. The simple fact that the former president was investigated and charged by a grand jury like anyone else is an enormous victory for the rule of law. Today we celebrate twin American principles: no one is above the rule of law, and everyone is entitled to its protections." -- Joyce Vance, Civil Discourse newsletter, March 30, 2023
Dan Pfeiffer suggests how to talk about the indictment in his Substack newsletter. He was Senior Advisor to the President Obama for strategy and communications.
