WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Russ Fulcher (ID-01) released the following statement on the indictment of President Donald J. Trump:

"From day one, the Manhattan District Attorney has been driven not by genuine evidence of wrongdoing, but by political motivations. That has tainted his case against President Trump and shaken the trust of Americans in our justice system.

Seven years after the election of President Trump, Democrats are still out looking to exact political revenge after previous attempts have failed. When this inevitably fails, what will be the next pretext?

Today’s actions have caused irreversible harm to the rule of law, and will further inflame the divisions in our country. To the far-left progressives driving this effort: this will backfire. Americans have figured you out."
