Elise Stefanik SLAMS Trump's guilty verdict, calls for an appeal, says 'corrupt' case was 'illegally brought'

"We must work around the clock to ensure President Trump is victorious this November," she said.

New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik slammed the outcome of Donald Trump's Manhattan falsified business documents case after the jury released a verdict on Thursday, in which they found the former president guilty on all 34 charges.

Rep. Stefanik encouraged President Trump's team to appeal the verdict and insisted that the "corrupt" case was "illegally brought forward" by a justice system that has been weaponized under President Joe Biden and the Democrat Party.

"Today's verdict shows how corrupt, rigged, and unAmerican the weaponized justice system has become under Joe Biden and Democrats. I fully support President Trump appealing this decision and look forward to a higher New York Court to deliver justice and overturn this verdict," said Stefanik in a statement obtained by The Post Millennial.

"The facts are clear: this was a zombie case illegally brought forward by a corrupt prosecutor doing Joe Biden's political bidding in a desperate attempt to save Joe Biden's failing campaign. The case hinged on the testimony of a convicted felon who was disbarred for lying and perjured himself when he lied to Congress," she continued.

"This sham trial was overseen by a corrupt and highly unethical Judge who is a Biden donor and whose own family has directly profited from this case. This corrupt Democrat Judge imposed a clearly unconstitutional gag order on President Trump and his team. This corrupt Democrat Judge routinely sided with the prosecution and prevented President Trump’s defense from calling a critical witness to the stand."

Stefanik, the House Republican Conference Chair, slammed the Soros-backed prosecution team and stated that the American people must elect Trump in November to defend the country from an illegally weaponized justice system.

"The prosecution team that brought forward this case consisted of a Soros-funded Far Left Democrat District Attorney on a vendetta, Democrat political operatives, and Democrat donors. From the start, the weaponized scales of justice were stacked against President Trump. Joe Biden, Far Left Democrats, and their stenographers in the mainstream media have made it clear they will stop at nothing to prevent President Trump from returning to the White House," said Stefanik.

"We must work around the clock to ensure President Trump is victorious this November to save America from Biden’s failed Far Left Democrat agenda and the illegal weaponization of the justice system against the American people."

Stefanik's fiery remarks come moments after the jury found former President Donald Trump guilty on all 34 counts in a case brought forth by Democrat Manhattan District Attorney Alving Bragg regarding payments made to former Trump attorney Michael Cohen that were classified in bookkeeping records as legal fees.

Bragg accused Trump of 34 counts of falsifying business records, claiming that 34 bookkeeping entries—which included receipts, checks, and invoices for payments made to Cohen—were not appropriate to be listed as legal expenses. Bragg asserted that they were "hush money" payments to a porn star, with whom Trump was rumored to have had a sexual encounter, rather than legal fees.

Congresswoman Stefanik has been critical of the prosecutors in the case and New York Justice Juan Merchan, who is the judge overseeing the case, since the start of the trial.

On Tuesday, she filed a formal misconduct complaint against Judge Merchan in the New York Unified Court System. She questioned the impartiality of Merchan's selection to handle the case, claiming it was not "random."

Stefanik requested an investigation to "determine whether the random selection process was in fact followed." She claimed that Judge Merchan, a renowned Democratic Party donor, was often assigned to cases involving Trump and his friends, which may not be a coincidence.

The next phase in Trump's Manhattan case will be sentencing by Judge Merchan, with the former president facing four years of prison time for each offense.
