Republicans Show United Support for President Trump

March 31, 2023

“While NY faces an open season for crime, the Manhattan DA is focused on arresting a former president. This is what an assault on democracy looks like – using government power to go after your political opponents – & it’s coming directly from those who proclaim to ‘defend’ it.”

— Governor Kim Reynolds, Iowa


“It is beyond belief that District Attorney Alvin Bragg has indicted a former President and current presidential candidate for pure political gain. Arresting a presidential candidate on a manufactured basis should not happen in America.”

— Governor Glenn Youngkin, Virginia


“D.A. Bragg should resign for his abuse of power and targeting on Donald Trump.”

— Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Arkansas


“TRULY, what has happened to OUR America? I am so sorrowed about the lack of respect shown toward the commitment and accomplishments that President Trump has given us. I am so sorrowed at the witch hunt on President Trump and his entire family. I am so sorrowed at the lack of respect toward us - OUR America. Mr. President, Melania, and all the Trump Family (especially my huntin' buddies Don Jr. and Eric): Thank you from all of us. You shook up the world and invaded the liberal playhouse. I have always treasured our friendships and will never waiver. Pour it on CHAMP!”

— Governor Jim Justice, West Virginia


“Weaponization of our courts for political grievances is an abhorrent abuse of power. The George Soros-supported NYC DA is only furthering the radical liberal agenda to have elections determined at the jury box rather than the ballot box. America deserves better.”

— Governor Greg Abbott, Texas


“I do not see anything that is reasonable, anything that is honorable, anything that is legal, or anything that is even ethical about what this prosecutor has done.”

— Governor Henry McMaster, South Carolina


“Today is an absolute outrage and tragic day for our country. This left-wing Soros DA has decided to use the power of his office to indict Donald Trump—facts and law be damned!”

— U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, Texas


“Wonder if DA Bragg remembers Durham DA Mike Nifong who withheld exculpatory DNA tests on the Duke lacrosse players. He was subsequently forced out of office, disbarred, and convicted of contempt of court…”

 — U.S. Senator Rand Paul, Kentucky


“Radical leftists have been going after President Trump since day one - this sham of an indictment is no different. Instead of blindly attacking the 45th President, Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg should address the skyrocketing crime epidemic in his own backyard - a direct result of soft-on-crime policies. This latest witch-hunt will only make President Trump stronger.”

— U.S. Senator Markwayne Mullin, Oklahoma


“There is a reason that federal prosecutors had already declined to pursue charges against Donald Trump. It is clear that the allegations against him are politically motivated and are based almost entirely on the testimony of ex-employees who wish him harm.”

— U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, Mississippi


“Given that the DOJ and FEC declined to bring charges in this matter, the Manhattan DA’s case appears to be politically motivated.”

— U.S. Senator John Hoeven, North Dakota


“An indictment is a far cry from a conviction. Considering several prosecutors at both the federal and state levels have passed on former President Trump’s case, it seems to be a bit of a stretch to say the least. We'll let justice take its course.”

— U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer, North Dakota


“This pro-criminal New York DA has failed to uphold the law for violent criminals, yet weaponized the law against political enemies. This is a travesty and it should not be happening in the greatest country on Earth.”

— U.S. Senator Tim Scott, South Carolina


“This is not a good day for America.”

— U.S. Senator Mike Lee, Utah


“The Manhattan DA’s partisan prosecution of President Trump is a disgrace. NYC has a real problem with violent crime. Instead of spending so much time targeting his political enemies, Alvin Bragg should focus on doing his job to keep the people of NYC safe.”

— U.S. Senator Ted Budd, North Carolina


“The deranged obsession & irrational fixation of Trump haters has resulted in a marxist, soft on crime DA setting a dangerous new precedent in America As other nations have learned the hard way the road of political prosecutions is a two way street with no exit ramps”

— U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, Florida


“Today’s indictment of President Trump is political persecution masquerading as law…The American people will see this for exactly what it is: a grave miscarriage of justice."

— U.S. Senator J.D. Vance, Ohio


“Pres Trump was reportedly just indicted on an incredibly weak case after feds declined to prosecute Smells like politicization of our justice system Why isn’t DA Bragg cracking down on recent crime in NY to keep public safe??”

— U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley, Iowa


“This is politically motivated and Iowans see right through it. This far Left, soft on crime DA has been fixated on going after the former president while crime in his city runs rampant. We need to restore confidence and faith in our justice system.”

— U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, Iowa


“Tonight’s indictment of Donald Trump isn’t about the law. It’s about power. Raw power. It’s the Democrat Party telling the nation they will stop at nothing to control the outcome of the next presidential election. It is an assault on our democracy, pure and simple.”

— U.S. Senator Josh Hawley, Missouri


“Americans are exhausted with the radical Left’s never-ending obsession with President Trump. NYC is ridden with violent crime, undeterred homelessness, and record-breaking larceny. Yet, their incompetent DA relentlessly pursues a misdemeanor charge against a Floridian.”

— U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, Kansas


“The indictment of President Trump resulted from a politically motivated prosecution by a NY district attorney whose campaign was funded by George Soros. This is about interfering in a presidential election; it has nothing to do with justice. Democrats have crossed the line.”

— U.S. Senator Cynthia Hyde-Smith, Mississippi


“Once again, we see two tiers of justice at work. There is no limit to what the left will do to bring down President Trump, and today’s indictment is nothing but a cynical, Soros-backed play to take down a 2024 candidate and former President.”

— U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn, Tennessee


"The indictment of a former president and current candidate for the White House is unprecedented and will almost certainly do lasting damage to our polarized nation. Both local and federal prosecutors have previously declined to bring charges. Any criminal indictment of a former president should involve a serious crime with credible, airtight evidence. From numerous press reports, this sealed indictment fails this test. Now, a local partisan prosecutor. well known for being soft on violent crime, has moved our country into banana republic territory - a sad day for our nation. The American people will see through this abuse of the rule of law."

— U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan, Alaska


“With all the problems facing our country — many exacerbated by Radical Left governance — now a George Soros funded D.A. issues a political indictment against a former president. Leftists are destroying America.”

— U.S. Senator Ron Johnson, Wisconsin


"Never before in American history has the party in power targeted a former president with criminal charges. Such an unprecedented step should not be taken lightly. But the left-wing prosecutor in New York City reportedly has charged President Trump with a convoluted legal theory already rejected by his predecessor and the Department of Justice. I hope that the courts dismiss the indictment as a matter of law, and I urge the prosecutors pursuing President Trump to carefully consider the harm caused to our republic if flimsy charges against former presidents become a new common practice in our politics.”

— U.S. Senator Tom Cotton, Arkansas


“Our justice system is being abused as a political weapon to go after former President Trump and affect an election. This indictment is clearly a politically-motivated prosecution by a DA who ignores murders and carjackings but will contort the law to attack his political enemy.”

— U.S. Senator Mike Braun, Indiana


“This indictment doesn't pass the smell test. The Department of Justice already looked into the facts and decided there was no case to be made against President Trump. This is the same District Attorney who is notorious for letting violent criminals off the hook in Manhattan, but has been laser-focused on pursuing a politicized prosecution of a former president. Politics should never tip the scales of justice, and Congress has every right to investigate the conduct and decision-making of the Manhattan D.A.’s office.”

   — U.S. Senator Thom Tillis, North Carolina


“Indicting a former President is an unprecedented step and it’s a threat to our democracy. Stop the witch hunt now.”

 — U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville, Alabama


“First, our media was overrun by the left, then our government was weaponized by the Democrats, and now our legal system has been completely upended by a Soros-funded district attorney who is targeting a political opponent while letting violent criminals run rampant across NYC.   I fully support speaker McCarthy's efforts to investigate this.”

      — U.S. Senator Rick Scott, Florida


“This is purely a partisan case against President Trump Soros DA Bragg campaigned on prosecuting President Trump, while violent crime in NYC rages on & violent criminals walk free This is a political prosecution in search of a crime & sets a dangerous precedent going forward.”

— U.S. Senator Eric Schmitt, Missouri


“Let’s call this what it is: a political prosecution from a rogue DA who campaigned on indicting Donald Trump. The American people will see through this prosecutorial misconduct.”

— U.S. Senator Steve Daines, Montana


“Alvin Bragg has irreparably damaged our country in an attempt to interfere in our Presidential election. As he routinely frees violent criminals to terrorize the public, he weaponized our sacred system of justice against President Donald Trump. The American people will not tolerate this injustice, and the House of Representatives will hold Alvin Bragg and his unprecedented abuse of power to account.”

— Speaker Kevin McCarthy, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives


“The radical left has consistently weaponized our courts to silence conservative voices. The actions by the Soros-backed Democrat DA in NYC is the latest example of this abuse of power. I stand with President Trump!”

“Trump’s indictment is a travesty. This is a political prosecution. Period.”

— Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, West Virginia


“Like many Kentuckians, I'm appalled by the political weaponization of our justice system against President Trump. The Manhattan DA is choosing to downplay violent felonies that are occurring in his district every day in favor of a politically motivated prosecution, because it appeases the desires of the far-left. These actions are the exact opposite of how voters expect us to treat the law.”

— Attorney General Daniel Cameron, Kentucky


“Upon learning of the NY DA indictment, I am heartbroken by the damage this targeted prosecution will do to the integrity of our justice system. It is a sad day in the story of the United States.”

— Attorney General Ashley Moody, Florida


“The actions of the Manhattan DA only serve to further erode the trust our citizens have in our nation’s justice system. This is a sad day for our country and for the rule of law.”

— Attorney General Raúl Labrador, Idaho


“The political establishment using their powers to indict a former president and current political opponent sets a dangerous precedent. The last thing that should ever happen in this country is the prevention of voters to freely decide who their leaders should be by weaponizing the system. The Left's prosecutors let violent felons out of jail, refuse to prosecute violent crime, and then go after candidates like President Trump to win their political battles. We must stand strong against this type of abuse of power, or they will continue doing it to others less equipped to defend themselves.”

— Attorney General Todd Rokita, Indiana


“Politics don't belong in prosecutions. Our country deserves so much better.”

— Attorney General Brenna Bird, Iowa


“The Manhattan DA is another Soros- funded prosecutor with misplaced priorities. Instead of protecting the people of NYC from violent crime, he brings specious charges against our former President. Our legal system was never meant to be weaponized to serve a political agenda.”

— Attorney General Andrew Bailey, Missouri

“Soros-funded prosecutors make all prosecutors look bad when they weaponize the criminal justice system to achieve a political goal. This is setting a dangerous precedent.”

— Attorney General Alan Wilson, South Carolina


“Every minute Bragg spends prosecuting the former president is a minute he is not prosecuting violent criminals. This is a tragedy for violent crime victims and is one of the reasons Americans are losing trust in the government. It's time we return to upholding the law honestly, fairly, and without prejudice and focus on serving the people that need our protection.”

— Attorney General Jason Miyares, Virginia


“President Donald Trump always fought for us. He puts the American people above corrupt interests. For that reason alone, the powerful will never stop coming for him. A majority of Americans know Alvin Bragg’s witch hunt is a politically motivated prosecution. I continue to stand with President Trump as he has always stood with us.”

 — Congressman Matt Gaetz, Florida’s First Congressional District


“I’m honored to give a Lincoln’s Day Address in Gettysburg tonight. The irony of standing on the battleground when I found out President Trump has been indicted is profound. My President is innocent and the only one standing in the way of these modern day tyrants, just like our founding fathers did, to protect each of us from evil.”

— Congresswoman Majorie Taylor Greene, Georgia’s 14th Congressional District

— Congressman Steve Scalise, Louisiana’s First Congressional District


'The unprecedented election interference from corrupt Socialist District Attorney Alvin Bragg is a political witch-hunt and a dark day for America. The radical Far Left will stop at nothing to persecute Joe Biden's chief political opponent ahead of the 2024 presidential election to suppress the will and voice of the American people. Tens of millions of patriotic Americans have never been so energized to exercise their constitutional rights to peacefully organize and VOTE at the ballot box to save our great republic by electing President Donald J. Trump in 2024."

— Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, New York’s 21st Congressional District



— Congresswoman Jim Jordan, Ohio’s Fourth Congressional District

— Congresswoman Max Miller, Ohio’s Seventh Congressional District

— Congressman Byron Donalds, Florida’s 19th Congressional District

— Congressman Darrell Issa, California’s 48th Congressional District


“Alvin Bragg is pushing an agenda of the Left-wing extremist George Soros & the Democratic Party machine.

It’s always been about politics.”

— Congresswoman Kat Cammack, Florida’s Third Congressional District

— Congressman Eric Burlison, Missouri’s Seventh Congressional District

— Congressman Wesley Hunt, Texas’ 38th Congressional District


“The NY Grand jury’s decision to indict Pres Trump is again another example of Dems weaponization of justice system. The Soros backed NY DA is trying to escalate a case other courts would not even take up.

Trump and influence the upcoming 2024 elections.”

— Congresswoman Diana Harshbarger, Tennessee’s First Congressional District


“This is complete and utter bullshit. A far-left D.A. is attempting to fulfill a moronic campaign promise and following Democrats’ un-democratic playbook of weaponizing the federal government against Joe Biden’s top political opponent.”

— Congressman Brian Mast, Florida’s 21st Congressional District

— Congresswoman Scott DesJarlais, Tennessee’s Fourth Congressional District


“Soros-backed District Attorney Alvin Bragg's witch-hunt targeting President Donald Trump is a political persecution with purely malicious intent. Bragg has repeatedly allowed violent criminals to walk the streets, downgrading 52% of felony charges to misdemeanors. Yet now he has decided to spend precious taxpayer dollars and resources on this outrageous case against Donald Trump, and only after he announced he was running for president. Every American should be concerned about this gross abuse of power and the politicized two-tiered system of justice we now have in America. I once again call on Governor Kathy Hochul to act. Uphold the rule of law and remove Alvin Bragg from office for, among other things, his failure to enforce the law and his blatant politicization of the criminal justice system.”

— Congressman Paul Gosar, Arizona’s Ninth Congressional District


"The indictment of a former President is an unprecedented event in American history. In breaking this precedent, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office risks normalizing the charging of presidential candidates in order to terminate their ambitions for federal office. Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan DA, has made it his top priority to go after conservative leaders, and has used his office to indict and harass his political opponents while undercharging or failing to prosecute actual violent criminals. The prosecution of political opponents is an action that one would expect to take place in Iran, Russia, or Venezuela - not the United States. Should it come to light that Mr. Bragg has misused his authority for political purposes or taken part in any Judiciary malfeasance against the former President, Congress must hold him accountable.”

— Congressman Doug Lamborn, Colorado’s Fifth Congressional District

— Congressman Thomas Massie, Kentucky’s Fourth Congressional District

“The House GOP created a committee on weaponization of government for a reason. Time for #DeedsNotWords.”

— Congressman Warren Davidson, Ohio’s Eighth Congressional District

— Congressman Clay Higgins, Louisiana’s Third Congressional District


“The partisan Manhattan D.A. is leading a political witch- hunt to punish Joe Biden's political opponents instead of getting justice for actual crime victims in the increasingly violent New York City. Every American should be concerned about this blatant political weaponization of the justice system.”

— Congresswoman Mary Miller, Illinois’ 15th Congressional District

— Congressman Bob Good, Virginia’s Fifth Congressional District


“For a liberal DA to indict former President Trump on a flimsy charge that even Biden’s runaway DOJ had dismissed is totally outrageous. This is the same liberal DA that campaigned on his personal vendetta against President Trump. This kind of third world perversion of justice will not stand.”

“Many of us were traveling home from Congress this evening when news broke that the Soros-funded, violent crime-ignoring D.A. Alvin Bragg is proceeding with a bogus indictment of former President Donald Trump. This unprecedented weaponization of our justice system is as shameless.”

 — Congressman Mike Johnson, Louisiana’s Fourth Congressional District


“NYC DA Alvin Bragg’s case has only been about one thing from the start — targeting President Donald Trump for political gain. Bragg’s case is so questionable that any respected prosecutor would have long since walked away. The truth will be exposed in the days and months ahead.”

— Congressman Jason Smith, Missouri’s Eighth Congressional District


“The indictment of Donald Trump is purely political theater. New York DA Alvin Bragg won’t prosecute violent criminals but is eager to weaponize the justice system for attempted political gain. What an absolute disgrace. We will hold Bragg accountable!”

— Congressman Brian Babin, Texas’ 36th Congressional District


“The indictment of Trump marks a sad day for our Nation. Politically-motivated prosecutors like Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg are the latest example of the weaponization of gov’t by the radical Left. House Republicans will continue working to stop this un-American abuse of power.”

This deeply misguided decision will only further erode trust in our core civic institutions and electoral system.”

— Congressman Rudy Yakym, Indiana’s Second Congressional District

“Unprecedented. America’s justice system should never be weaponized for political grandstanding.”

— Congressman Dan Crenshaw, Texas’ Second Congressional District


"This is a dark day in American history.The indictment of President Trump demonstrates more than ever how the Democrats have weaponized the government against the American people. As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, I am committed to holding the Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney accountable by requesting to review all documents in this case and working to ensure that federal funds are not used on this political witch hunt."

— Congressman Barry Moore, Alabama’s Second Congressional District


“The Left's weaponization of the justice system against President Trump and other political enemies is an egregious violation of the very foundations upon which our nation was built.

What happened today reeks of corrupt regimes in third- world dictatorships. There must be accountability for this injustice. The end of Alvin Bragg's career will be just the beginning.”

— Congressman William Timmons, South Carolina’s Fourth Congressional District


“Today's disgusting abuse of power by the Manhattan District Attorney is the latest example of the left's complete disregard for the rule of law. This is an attempt to appease a radical liberal base who personally hates President Donald Trump and his followers. Only in a banana republic does one political party arrest a candidate of the opposing party. Make no mistake, this is a political assault on hard working families, gun owners, veterans and the people that teach their children that there are only two genders.”

— Congressman Alex Mooney, West Virginia’s Second Congressional District


“Make no mistake, this crazy move by the rogue, liberal extremist NY DA is an attack on the American People.
