Wyden comments on indictments of 3 Trump campaign officials


Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., issued the following statement on indictments filed Monday against three Trump campaign officials:

“Today’s indictments against Mr. Manafort, Mr. Gates and Mr. Papadopoulos are stark reminders of how the special counsel’s investigation is critical to the rule of law and our national security. The allegations against Mr. Papadopolous come after previously confirmed ties between the Trump campaign and the Russians, and raise more questions about which campaign officials may have encouraged the expansion of these connections. The indictment against Mr. Manafort and Mr. Gates confirm the importance of following illicit money trails wherever they may lead, including to pro-Russian Ukranian interests.

“Each of these allegations should be the subject of thorough investigation by Congress as well as the special counsel. Finally, the tax evasion and money laundering charges against Mr. Manafort are a reminder that Donald Trump, in contravention of decades of bipartisan practice, still has not released his own taxes.”
