With trust in legal system already at stake, Trump verdict further erodes confidence

After a New York jury found Donald Trump guilty on 34 felony counts of falsifying records, the verdict sparked a host of opinions about the fairness of the trial and result, and questions about its impact on this year’s election. I can’t answer those questions. What I do know is that, at the first moment in U.S. history that a former president was charged with and then convicted of a crime, every American ought to want our legal system to be operating at the highest possible level, with strong public confidence.
