Once it was revealed that the former president would be charged with crimes on Thursday, some Texas Republicans immediately denounced the criminal indictment of Donald Trump as a politically driven disaster.
“The Democratic Party has an unrelenting loathing for Donald Trump. Sen. Ted Cruz of the United States tweeted, “The’substance’ of this political persecution is complete trash. This is a terrible increase in the weaponization of the legal system and is utterly unparalleled.
The indictment has been portrayed by Republicans, including Trump, as a political “witch hunt” to malign the former president in front of the 2024 election.
Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, who has not officially declared his candidacy, is now trailing Trump in recent surveys. Democratic President Joseph Biden is also anticipated to run once more.
Cruz anticipated that arresting Trump would only increase the former president’s appeal among followers on his podcast earlier in March.

“This is the highest level of political persecution and election meddling in recorded history. The radical left democrats “have been engaged in a Witch-Hunt to destroy the Make America Great Again movement from the minute I came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower, and even before I was sworn in as the President of the United States,” Trump said in a statement.
The New York Times reported on Thursday that a Manhattan grand jury has decided to indict Trump for his alleged participation in providing hush money to adult film star Stormy Daniels. Trump is the first former president in the history of the US to be charged with a crime.
Despite the fact that the felony indictment has not yet been made public, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has requested that Trump appear in court to answer the unnamed accusations.
