Former President Donald Trump has been found guilty on all counts of falsifying business records in his hush money trial, making him the first former U.S. president to be convicted of a crime. Trump is likely to appeal the verdict. He will be sentenced on July 11, only four days before the Republican National Convention.

In this 35-minute episode of America Speaks, Dr. Frank Luntz asks a panel of Americans about the verdict just minutes after it was announced. The panelists discuss their surprise (or lack thereof) at the verdict, its potential impact on the upcoming election, the possibility of violence in its aftermath, and whether the case should have been brought forth at all.
