Conservative leaders throw support behind former president after indictment

WASHINGTON, DC – In the moments following Donald Trump’s indictment, Kevin McCarthy and his far-right House GOP majority threw their support behind the former president. Government watchdog Accountable.US released the following statement:

It is striking to watch the MAGA House GOP ignore all evidence and bend over backwards to support the former president. At the end of the day, Trump’s fate will be determined in a court of law, not by his House GOP cronies — but in one of the most important moments in history, Americans won’t forget where Kevin McCarthy and his majority stood.”
