Press Release

Toledo, Ohio – Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (OH-09), Dean of the Ohio Delegation, released the following statement regarding the conviction of President Donald Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort in federal court and news of the guilty plea of Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen. This comes after Trump foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos and national security advisor Michael Flynn plead guilty to charges last year.

“The road to justice is long but today we are one step closer to learning the full picture of the crimes committed during the run-up to President Trump’s election,” said Kaptur. “From bank fraud to lying to federal officials to campaign finance violations there is a clear culture of corruption and criminal activity prevalent among some of the President’s closest advisors. As the American people digest this news, it is critical we ensure that the Mueller investigation continues without interference.”

“As I have said since the beginning of this unfortunate national drama; truth will out, no matter where it leads,” Kaptur concluded.
