Texas Republicans Blast Trump Indictment

Trump’s indictment: Texas Republicans quickly came to Donald Trump’s defense following news of the former president’s criminal indictment over alleged hush money payments to an adult film star. 

Texas Republicans have lambasted the indictment as politically motivated. 

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz called the criminal charges “utter garbage,” while Gov. Greg Abbott attempted to link the indictment to liberals working to keep Trump from the presidency. 

“Weaponization of our courts for political grievances is an abhorrent abuse of power,” Gov. Abbott wrote on Twitter.  

As of Thursday evening, the precise charges of the criminal charges against Trump were not yet known, according to The New York Times.

Question for Discussion: Do you think President Donald Trump will be convicted of these charges?
