CONTACT | Ansley Lacitis

Washington State Democratic Party Chair Tina Podlodowski released the following statement in response to Michael Cohen pleading guilty, and to Paul Manafort being found guilty, of multiple crimes:

"The culture of corruption surrounding Donald Trump has reached a new high. It is a disgrace, and it is a threat to our democracy.

Enough.

It's time we reject Republican rubber stamps like Dino Rossi, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and Jaime Herrera Beutler, and elect Democrats. Because -- let's be clear -- Dino Rossi, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and Jaime Herrera Beutler will never hold Donald Trump accountable. They are on Team Trump no matter what."
