‘Stand with Trump’ becomes a rallying cry as Republicans amplify attacks on the US justice system


AP Congressional Correspondent

WASHINGTON (AP) — Moments after Donald Trump pleaded not guilty to federal charges that he hoarded classified documents and then conspired to obstruct an investigation about it, the Republicans in Congress had his back. Trump’s mounting legal jeopardy has quickly become a political rallying cry as they rush to stand by the indicted former president. Many Republicans say they haven’t fully read the 49-page indictment against Trump. But they are adopting his grievances against the federal justice system as their own. It’s an example of how Trump has transformed the Republican Party, which was once the party of “law and order” but is now attacking the very justice system at the foundation of U.S. democracy.
