As President Donald Trump now faces yet another indictment from an investigation spearheaded by Special Counsel Jack Smith, Republicans and conservative allies have taken a firm stance against prosecutorial abuse.

RSBN reported on Thursday that the president had announced his pending indictment via an official statement, writing, “I never thought it possible that such a thing could happen to a former President of the United States, who received far more votes than any sitting President in the History of our Country, and is currently leading, by far, all Candidates, both Democrat and Republican, in Polls of the 2024 Presidential Election. I AM AN INNOCENT MAN!”

This is Trump’s second indictment this year. In March, he was indicted and later arraigned in New York at the behest of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on an astronomical 34 felony counts related to allegedly “falsifying” business records.

The newest indictment is related to the federal probe of supposedly “classified” documents that were taken from Trump’s personal home, Mar-a-Lago, in Florida last year after the FBI conducted an unprecedented raid.

“Imagine being naïve enough to believe that the Biden Bribe evidence and Trump indictment happening the same day was a coincidence,” wrote Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., on Twitter shortly after the news broke.

He was referring to the House Oversight Committee’s review of the FBI’s FD-1023 document, which revealed shocking evidence of alleged bribery in connection with Joe Biden and Hunter Biden, per RSBN.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, reacted to news of Trump’s indictment as well, stating on social media, “DOJ indicts former President/candidate Trump SAME DAY DOJ/FBI restricts access to unnecessarily redacted Biden allegations. And they wonder why ppl think there r two standards for justice[.]”

The House Judiciary’s official account tweeted out, “WITCH HUNT.”

“It’s shameful,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., wrote on Thursday night. “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. We must win in 2024. We must beat these sick people.”

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who is also the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, wrote, “Sad day for America. God Bless President Trump.”

Sen. J.D. Vance, R-Ohio, who won his 2022 election with the help of Trump’s coveted endorsement last year, slammed the indictment news. He stated, “The former president will be indicted for ‘mishandling’ his own government’s classified info. Yet everyone agrees the president has the authority to declassify anything. This is a moral and constitutional joke. Merrick Garland has disgraced this country.”

Trump ally and former Republican gubernatorial candidate of Arizona, Kari Lake, ripped the DOJ and the Biden administration for their actions.

“By indicting their chief political opponent, Joe Biden and Merrick Garland have just committed the most blatant act of election interference in our nation’s history,” she said in an official statement.

She continued, “…We will not cave to this deliberate attempt to interfere in the 2024 election. The Republican Party must unite to save our country from this historic corruption and work to return President Donald J. Trump to the White House in 2024.”
