Biden team takes aim at Trump after guilty verdict

After weeks of largely ignoring former president Donald Trump's hush money trial in New York, President Biden's campaign weighed in Thursday evening after Trump was found guilty on all 34 counts, saying the verdict showed that "no one is above the law."

But campaign officials also say privately they do not expect the verdict, striking as it is, to fundamentally alter the dynamics of the tight presidential race, given that Trump's loyal supporters are likely to rally around him, while swing voters have already factored in his tendency to break the rules.

"Donald Trump has always mistakenly believed he would never face consequences for breaking the law for his own personal gain," Michael Tyler, the campaign's communications director, said in a statement. "But today's verdict does not change the fact that the American people face a simple reality. There is still only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: at the ballot box. Convicted felon or not, Trump will be the Republican nominee for president."
