Local reactions toe party lines
Local and state political figures reacted to the criminal indictment of former President Donald Trump in New York on Thursday:
David Arredondo, Lorain County Republican Party chairman:
Arredondo emailed the following statement to The Chronicle-Telegram on Thursday.
"Once again, Democrats sink to a new low in regards to attacking Republicans. Time and time again, Democrats look foolish when their attacks on Trump backfire on them: Two impeachments, no convictions. And nothing from the January 6 witch hunt committee either."
"This indictment is a waste of time and taxpayer money as there is no basis for this charge. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg just confirmed the adage that a 'grand jury can indict a ham sandwich.' There will be no trial or conviction any time soon."
