Both President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris declined to comment on Trump’s indictment.
Biden told reporters he had no comment regarding Trump’s indictment and instead called for the release of journalist Evan Gershkovich, who is currently imprisoned in Russia.
At a joint press conference between Kamala Harris and Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema, Harris also claimed she had no comment.
Harris said to a reporter, “I am not going to comment on an ongoing criminal case as it relates to the former president.”
Reporting from Fox News:
However, Hichilema took the question and attempted to explain his feelings on the matter from the perspective of the Zambian government. "The indictment of President Trump — what does that mean to the rule of law? Let's remove names from your question," Hichilema told the reporter. "Let's put what we decided we would do to govern ourselves in an orderly manner. [We] passed our constitutions — bedrock law. Then, secondary laws, other regulations create a platform or framework around which we agreed either as Americans or as Zambians to govern ourselves and so to live within those confines." ... "And here, Vice President, we have a scenario now when we fight against corruption which has taken away resources from children and the sick — sometimes names are thrown into it and perceptions are created that are totally inappropriate," he said. "Because transgressions against the law, if you take what belongs to the public, you have offended the law and the name does not matter."
