NFRW PRESIDENT issues statement on former President Trump's Indictment

"It is unprecedented that a former U.S. president has been indicted. We are a nation of laws. No one is above the law, and no one should be targeted by our legal system. American people need to have confidence in their legal systems. Speaking on behalf of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), I am concerned that this indictment appears to be politically motivated. The NFRW will be watching as this proceeds.”
