INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for the future of Indiana and its families, today released the following statement after U.S. Senators Mike Braun and Todd Young voted to acquit former president Donald Trump from inciting an insurrection against the United States:
“These are the facts. Former president Donald Trump incited an insurrection against the United States on January 6. What’s worse: The Indiana Republican Party refused to hold Trump accountable for attempting to overturn American democracy — even after it’s become clear the former president viewed his own Vice President’s life, and that of other elected officials, as disposable.
It is profoundly disappointing for U.S. Senators Mike Braun and Todd Young to endorse an un-American, fringe ideology over the U.S. Constitution, especially Young who once campaigned that it took a former Marine to put country before political party. History will harshly judge the INGOP, and the Democrats look forward to holding these bad actors accountable in the coming elections.” – John Zody, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party
