Trump can't use his presidential run to dodge criminal liability

U.S. Department of Justice

Black and white picture of Donald Trump. Text reads "We can't let Donald Trump use his presidential run to dodge criminal accountability."

Nobody is above the law – and Donald Trump’s decision to run for president again can’t change that fact. But now, there’s a serious risk he’ll use this presidential bid to dodge any accountability in the investigations into his potentially criminal activity.

He’s currently under investigation for multiple serious crimes – like his role in the deadly January 6th attack on the Capitol, and his mishandling of the classified documents he stashed at Mar-A-Lago.

Donald Trump believes that running for president will save himself from criminal liability – even telling his team that as president, it would be “tough for politically motivated prosecutors to ‘get to [him]’.”

As a nonpartisan organization, we do not endorse or oppose candidates for office – we stand with the people as the most powerful force in our democracy.

That’s why these investigations must continue – we the People deserve to know the full truth about Trump’s attacks on our democracy.

We’re still uncovering the full story about how Trump and his associates planned to overturn our 2020 election results. And if Trump is found guilty of criminal acts against our democracy, he can’t use his presidential run as a shield against legal consequences.

Sign the petition: The DOJ can’t let up now. The investigations into Trump’s potentially illegal conduct must continue to be thorough and unobstructed – regardless of his presidential bid.
