As Rachel Maddow said on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House:

Listen, this is unanimous on all counts. This is a final and irreversible judgment. He can appeal. I’m sure he will appeal. But this is all the prosecutor asked for, from a jury that took this case very, very seriously in every respect. We have counted the deliberation hours down here.

The test here for us as a country is not about what happens on appeal. And it’s not about what happens at sentencing. The test for us now as a count is whether or not this former president and his allies will have succeeded in undermining the rule of law so that people reject this as a legitimate function of the rule of law in our country. They have tried to delegitimize this judge. They have tried to delegitimize the court and the laws under which he is being charged. The people involved in bringing this case have been threatened, intimidated, and have everything leveled against them in a manner designed to delegitimize the American people’s lawsuit. It is now up to the American people to decide whether we will accept these efforts.

Trump will continue to try to delegitimize the process and the rule of law, but the message sent was loud and clear. There was no ambiguity. Donald Trump has broken the law dozens of times and he did it to win the 2016 election. Republicans have now elected a convicted felon as president, and even if a few voters disqualify Trump based on this verdict, the message is devastating.
