Top Republicans Respond After Federal Trump Indictment Handed Down

The news that former President Donald Trump had been indicted on Thursday reportedly infuriated leading Republicans and conservatives across the nation.

In the criminal investigation into the former president’s handling of sensitive data after leaving office, a federal grand jury in Florida allegedly charged him on seven counts.

Although no one has seen the accusations, sources claimed that they include making false statements, conspiring to obstruct justice, and willfully holding onto material that may be used in national security.

“The weaponization of federal law enforcement represents a mortal threat to a free society. We have for years witnessed an uneven application of the law depending upon political affiliation.” DeSantis said in a statement in response to the events.

“Why so zealous in pursuing Trump yet so passive about Hillary or Hunter? The DeSantis administration will bring accountability to the DOJ, excise political bias and end weaponization once and for all.” DeSantis continued.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) described the event as a ‘dark day for America.’

Conservative radio host Buck Sexton made an ominious prediction about what the indictment may portend:

“This isn’t even the last of the criminal indictments Trump will face. They’re going to try to bury him in prosecutions. They see no point in holding back now. Declaration of all out lawfare.” He said.

For his part, Texas Senator Ted Cruz described the situation as ‘shameful & disgraceful.’
