House Republicans Defend Trump After Latest Indictment, Confirm Their Anti-Democracy Agenda
MAGA Extremists Continue Anti-Democracy Crusade Ranging from Feigned Awareness of the Indictment to Outright Defense
Washington, D.C. — As former President Trump faces his unprecedented fourth indictment, MAGA Republicans, when not completely silent, continue to breathlessly defend the Big Lie and the former president’s illegal attempts to overturn the 2020 election results, confirming their commitment to an anti-democracy agenda.
“The continued defense of Donald Trump by House Republicans is appalling but, at this point, not surprising. Whether praising Trump’s criminal role trying to overturn the 2020 election he knew he’d lost or pushing voter suppression bills like the ACE Act, House Republicans have shown their top priority: pushing an anti-democracy agenda that is weakening the fabric of our republic,” said Zac Petkanas, spokesperson for the House Accountability War Room. “It’s time we see them for what they are: extremists who will chip away at our democracy when they don’t like the results of an election – either through a criminal scheme to overturn the will of the voters, or legislation making it harder for their opponents to vote.”
