DES MOINES– Gov. Kim Reynolds released the following statement in response to the politically charged indictment of President Donald J. Trump:  

“This sham indictment only serves as a reminder to Americans that there is a two-tiered justice system under Joe Biden. 

“While New York faces an open season for crime, the Manhattan DA is focused on arresting a former president. This is what an assault on democracy looks like – using government power to go after your political opponents – and it’s coming directly from those who proclaim to ‘defend’ it. 

“This isn’t normal, it isn’t ‘justice,’ and it’s certainly not what America stands for.”
