Donald Trump indicted by Manhattan grand jury on more than 30 counts related to business fraud: the first time in American history that a current or former president has faced criminal charges — source — 31 March 2023 (LINK)
— Trump released a statement in response to the indictment claiming it was "Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history."
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has vowed to launch an investigation into the matter, and congressional Republicans quickly rallied to Trump's defense, attacking district attorney Bragg on Twitter and accusing the DA of a political witch hunt.
"Outrageous," tweeted House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan of Ohio, one of the Republican committee chairmen who has demanded Bragg testify before Congress about the Trump investigation. Sen. Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican, called the indictment "completely unprecedented" and said it is "a catastrophic escalation in the weaponization of the justice system."
