A grand jury in Atlanta, Georgia, charged former President Donald Trump and 18 others for alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election, and arrested them last week.
Coming just ahead of the 2024 election, Trump’s fourth arrest could be damaging to his second presidential candidacy hopes.
Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted her disgust with the charges earlier this month.
“Corrupt Fulton County DA Fani Willis' “investigation” (WITCH HUNT) of President Trump dragged on for over two and a half years, just in time to interfere with the 2024 Presidential Election,” Greene wrote.
The Georgia jury described calls and emails among other efforts from Trump’s party alleging a large conspiracy undermining the 2020 election. District Attorney Fani Willis charged Trump with thirteen felonies, similar to his federal case in Washington but with more detail about the crimes committed in Georgia.
The congresswoman believes the timing for the indictment came with malicious intent.
Greene added, “That’s not a coincidence. That’s election interference.”
Representative Lauren Boebert tweeted her indignation as well. In a post listing the downfalls of “Joe Biden’s America”, the Colorado Republican added, “A former president is persecuted for political reasons.”
Boebert also shared her frustrations with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
“In a sane country, Fanni Willis wouldn’t have a job after the indictment she just released,” Boebert wrote. “But, we are not living in a fair country. We’re living in a banana republic.”
