Donald Trump to be arraigned in 2020 US election indictment

Washington, DC, resident Michaela Platzer, 63, has lamented what she called yet “another sad day for America” as Trump pleaded not guilty.

“I remember Watergate, where the Republicans stood up and said ‘enough’,” Platzer said. “But I guess that’s not where we are any more.”

Her partner, Michael Katzmann, 63, noted that the day had been largely calm.

“The indictment said there were six co-conspirators, but in my mind, every Republican who has not stood up to Trump or made excuses for him is a co-conspirator,” Katzmann said.
