Oklahoma lawmakers are releasing statements after a grand jury voted to indict former President Donald Trump.

Oklahoma Senator Markwayne Mullin released the following statement:

“Radical leftists have been going atfer President Trump since day one – this sham of an indictiment is no different.

“Instead of blindly attacking the 45th President, Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg should address the skyrocketing crime epidemic in his own backyard – a direct result of soft-n-crime policies. This latest witch-hunt will only make President Trump stronger.”

Oklahoma Congressman Josh Brecheen released the following statement:

“Politically motivated witch hunts against President Trump or any other former President or presidential candidate is a serious abuse of power. House Republicans are committed to investigating if any federal funds are being used by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his office to target President Trump for the purpose of interfering in our elections. I urge Democrats to join Republicans in condemning this baseless act of political persecution and commit to upholding the integrity of our elections and Republic.”

Oklahoma Representative Tom Cole has released the following statement:

“This is a sad day for America. In my opinion, the indictment of former President Trump is politically motivated, legally dubious and unlikely to prevail in court.”
