With more alleged evidence and new potential indictments, Trump’s legal troubles are piling up, and the Republicans are reportedly stepping up their game against the Department of Justice and the FBI.
The January 6 riots and alleged attempt to overturn elections
Trump’s latest indictment considers alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 elections. Before it was official, Trump’s closest advisors and lawyers were subpoenaed by the DOJ, and The New York Times wrote that some might be witnesses in this case.

Trump was previously arraignment in Florida regarding the alleged mishandling of classified documents, and that federal trial’s initial date was set for May 2024.
The party of Law and Order
Republicans were known as the party of “law and order.” The Guardian spoke to Larry Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, who stated, “I often think, what would Richard Nixon say?”
Sabato had more to say
Sabato continued, “He was the original ‘law and order’ president, with that slogan. What would he think now the party is going after the primary institutions of law and order, at least at the federal level? The law and order party has become the paranoid party.”
Defending Trump while alleging weaponization of the government
House Republicans, in the past few years, continually use the term “weaponization” while speaking about the FBI and DOJ, the Guardian noticed, adding that Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced impeachment articles against Christopher Wray, the director of the FBI.
Greene against the FBI
Greene stated that “the FBI has intimidated, harassed, and entrapped American citizens that have been deemed enemies of the Biden regime” and that he “has turned the FBI into Joe Biden and Merrick Garland’s police force” with “Soviet-style tactics.”
Following the leader
Kyle Herrig, executive director of the Congressional Integrity Project watchdog, told the outlet: “The party of MAGA is following the leader, Donald Trump, who is currently in serious legal troubles across the country.”
Herrig concluded, “The party seems willing to try to deflect from those legal problems by running interference vis-a-vis investigations that they’re doing in Congress. What they’re doing is playing 30% of their base without realizing you need another 20% to win elections.”
The division among GOP members
“There are cooler heads who appreciate that the kind of paranoia-infected Trump contagion is wrong and could be a real setback for the 2024 election,” said Larry Jacobs, director of the Center for the Study of Politics and Governance at the University of Minnesota. He talked about the swing voters and added, “You don’t see support for this unhinged view that the justice department and the FBI are somehow corrupt. There’s no support for that except in the fringe of the Republican party.”
In the meantime, Trump is sending a message
While posting on Truth Social, Trump expressed on numerous occasions how Jack Smith, the special counsel, was “deranged,” asking for “defunding” of the FBI while calling the investigations “witch hunts.” In one of his posts, Trump wrote, “The Radical Left Investigations of me now, Federal, State, and City, are a SCAM and continuation, tightly coordinated with each jurisdiction and run by the now fully exposed as being corrupt and shameless, DOJ & FBI.”

In another, he shouted, “CONGRESS, PLEASE INVESTIGATE THE POLITICAL WITCH HUNTS AGAINST ME CURRENTLY BEING BROUGHT BY THE CORRUPT DOJ AND FBI, WHO ARE TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL.”
Kurt Bardella, a former spokesperson and senior adviser for Republicans on the House oversight committee, concluded, “It seems like Republicans love the idea of law enforcement except when it comes to white-collar crime and when it comes to people of their own.”
