GOP Lawmakers Refuse to Say Trump Should Be Held Accountable If Convicted

HeadlineSep 29, 2023

During the House Oversight hearing, Republican lawmakers refused to say if former President Donald Trump should be held accountable if convicted. They were asked that question by Texas Democratic Congressmember Greg Casar.

Rep. Greg Casar: “Will members of the Oversight Committee please raise your hand if you believe both Hunter and Trump should be held accountable for any of the indictments against them, if convicted by a jury of their peers? … Raise your hands if you think that equal justice under the law applies and if Trump should be held accountable. I think it is worse than embarrassing that Republicans won’t raise their hands. They refuse to say that equal justice under the law should apply to everyone.”
