posted by Hannity Staff - 6.09.23

Members of the GOP are reacting to news that former President and 2024 candidate Donald Trump will be indicted on charges relating to the classified documents raid on his Mar-a-Lago residence.

Most Republicans are zeroing in on the hypocrisy and weaponization of the DOJ.

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

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

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy echoed a statement made by Trump, agreeing that it was a “dark day” in America.

“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,” McCarthy shared on Twitter.

“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,” conservative radio host Buck Sexton said.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) weighed in, saying “Indicting Donald Trump is the culmination of what Merrick Garland has been pushing for since he became Attorney General. The weaponization of our Department of Justice against enemies of the Biden administration will do enormous damage to the rule of law & have a lasting impact.”

“The federal government has indicted President Trump for a “crime” that no one else would have been tried for. The weaponization of our government is totally out of control and we need to do everything in our power to bring it under control!” Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) posted.

According to ABC News, Trump is being charged with willfully retaining the national defense documents, conspiring to obstruct justice, withholding the documents, corruptly concealing the records, concealing a document in a federal investigation, scheming to conceal and making false statements.
