CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Rep. Harriet Hageman (R-WY) today issued the following statement regarding the federal grand jury indictment of President Donald Trump in the case involving documents from his administration:

“The criminal prosecution of political adversaries is something that Third World countries do, and it’s the sort of thing that the United States of America used to be against. In Joe Biden’s America, the federal government is mobilized against political enemies in an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial power.

“The case against President Trump is ridiculously weak, since as president he had broad authority to decide what documents remained classified. It’s doubly thin because others are also known to have kept classified documents, including President Biden, although his were from his days as vice president, when he notably did not have declassification authority. And yet, President Trump is the only one being persecuted, which is quite a coincidence since he is currently the front runner to face Biden as he seeks re-election.

“Everyone knows that if Trump were not running for president again, none of this would be happening, which proves this is a political prosecution. I hope every American can see this for what it is – the abuse of federal law enforcement powers against a political opponent. It’s un-American and it’s wrong, but like all the other attempts to trip up President Trump, it will only make him stronger.”
