Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine Remains Silent on Donald Trump’s Felony Convictions

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has continued to maintain his silence on the recent felony convictions of former President Donald Trump. Despite the convictions, which include 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, DeWine has refused to comment on the matter.

In contrast, several other Ohio Republican lawmakers and leaders have spoken out against the verdict, with some calling it “election interference” and others predicting that the verdict will be overturned. Ohio Senator J.D. Vance, for example, stated that “this isn’t justice, it’s election interference,” while Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost predicted that the verdict will be overturned.

When asked about the comments made by his fellow Republicans, DeWine refused to comment, saying only that he may have some thoughts on the matter in the future. The lack of response from DeWine stands in stark contrast to his fellow Republicans, who have been vocal in their criticism of the verdict.

The convictions are related to a $130,000 “hush money” payment made by Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen to adult film star Stormy Daniels in the days leading up to the 2016 election. Trump will be sentenced on July 11, just days before the Republican National Convention takes place.
