Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was answering questions from reporters during a media briefing at Consensus yesterday as the verdict in the Trump hush money case rolled in.

  • A reporter asked for comment as the news broke.

What Kennedy said: At first, nothing.

  • "I've been disciplined about not commenting on court cases and talking about issues that I think are of concern to Americans and not issues that you know, are being used to divide us... so I'm not going to comment on it," he said.

At the end of the briefing, reporters were told a statement would be out shortly:

  • "The Democratic Party's strategy is to beat President Trump in the courtroom rather than the ballot box. This will backfire in November. Even worse, it is profoundly undemocratic," Kennedy's social media account said.
