Reactions and consequences

However, the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party Caucus shied off making extensive comments due to what they called ‘awareness of this situation.’ On Tuesday morning, Republican Senate Minority Leader Mark Johnson issued a statement that he expects accountability from his party members. 

He stressed that legislatures must uphold high-level conduct; hence, more information will unfold. He foresees correct punishments within the judicial system and Mitchell’s legislative role.

Even as investigations are ongoing, the public expects transparency from their leaders; all eyes remain open. The matter hangs by a thread until authorities settle it, thus determining Mitchell’s future in politics and the criminal justice system.
