Today, U.S. Representative Bennie G. Thompson (MS-02) released the following statement on the grand jury verdict of Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort:

“The Manafort verdict is more proof that Trump and his administration are corrupt,” Thompson said. “Since Trump has been elected, my office has received numerous calls asking for Congress to work to impeach him.”

“After yesterday’s verdict, constituents in the District are continuing their plea that we work to impeach Trump.  As things continue to unravel, Mississippians and all Americans are learning each and every day how corrupt this White House is.”
