Trump convicted of 34 crimes. AP Lawmakers and Candidates Respond

Ex-president Donald Trump was found guilty of all 34 crimes in a criminal trial in New York, making him the first former US president ever to be convicted of a criminal.

Why is it crucial?: The ruling introduces unprecedented legal and political issues that will have an undeniable impact on the 2024 presidential campaign. The presumptive GOP presidential nominee will be sentenced on July 11, four days before the start of the Republican National Convention. Trump’s conviction fueled his efforts to paint himself as a victim of politically motivated prosecutors. Pennsylvania state legislators responded largely along party lines.

Candidates for federal and state positions also weighed in.
