Lawmakers in D.C. had swift reactions Thursday evening to news of a Trump indictment. Many of them vented their displeasure via Twitter.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy:
"Today is indeed a dark day for the United States of America. It is unconscionable for a President to indict the leading candidate opposing him. Joe Biden kept classified documents for decades. I, and every American who believes in the rule of law, stand with President Trump against this grave injustice. House Republicans will hold this brazen weaponization of power accountable."
Sen. Josh Hawley:
"If the people in power can jail their political opponents at will, we don’t have a republic."
Rep. Anna Paulina Luna:
"The SAME DAY @GOPoversight is shown a document by the FBI showing evidence that Biden and his son were each paid $5 million dollars by a foreign national the DOJ indicts Trump. Coincidental? I think not."
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene:
"Democrats must literally shake with sweats when they see amazing packed out Trump rallies and overwhelming winning poll numbers week after week.
"They must awake in the night with panic at the thoughts of us winning in 2024."
"Their heads must ache painfully from never ending think tank sessions in white walled rooms trying to figure out how to cover up everyone’s crimes because their web of crimes and corruption are so intricately weaved together while they contort their minds to come up with never ending fake crimes from fake accusations as they harass innocent people any where in or near the Trump orbit."
"Just today, I read the FD-1023 form from the FBI’s most trusted credible informant.
"A detailed description of then Vice President Joe Biden getting paid $5 million to get Ukrainian Prosecutor Viktor Shokin fired for investigating Burisma.
"Hunter got paid too.
"Joe Biden has classified documents everywhere. Literally on the garage floor next to the garage door that opens and closes, but the corrupt and complicit FBI and DOJ do nothing.
"It’s shameful. Pathetic really. Ultimately the biggest hypocrisy in modern day history. A complete and total failure to the American people. A stain on our nation that the FBI and DOJ are so corrupt and they don’t even hide it anymore."
"Rep. Matt Gaetz:
"The phony Boxes Hoax indictment is an attempt to distract the American public from the millions of dollars in bribes that the Biden Crime Family received from foreign nationals. This scheme won't succeed. President Donald Trump will be back in the White House and Joe Biden will be Hunter’s cellmate."
