Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., said Thursday night she is more determined than ever to ending “the corrupt political weaponization of our federal government” after former President Donald Trump announced he was indicted for his handling of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
Stefanik, who is chair of the House Republican Conference, said she was appalled the Justice Department would let Trump’s attorneys know of the indictment on the same day the FBI was forced to turn over a form to the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability that details an alleged criminal influence peddling scheme involving President Joe Biden and a foreign adversary when Biden was vice president.
“The exact same day the FBI is forced to turn over to Congress absolutely damning and credible allegations regarding Joe Biden’s illegal, egregious, and treasonous corruption, Joe Biden weaponizes his Department of Justice to indict Donald Trump,” Stefanik said in a statement posted on her Twitter account. “The American people are smart and understand this is the epitome of the illegal and unprecedented weaponization of the federal government against Joe Biden’s leading opponent, President Donald J. Trump.
“The radical Far Left will stop at nothing to interfere with the 2024 election in order to prop up the catastrophic presidency and desperate campaign of Joe Biden.”
Stefanik said she is “committed to ending the corrupt political weaponization of the federal government, cutting out the rot in these agencies and holding government officials accountable for their endless illegal witch hunt against President Trump.”
“In 2024, we will vote like this country has never seen before and we will elect President Trump back to the White House to Save America,” she wrote.
