  • California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, the top Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee and a vocal opponent to Trump when he was in office, reacted to the Trump indictment with glee on Twitter.
  • “SO Trump finally got indicted! I predicted he would and I predicted that Stormy Daniels would get him! Sometimes justice works!” Waters wrote.
  • Meanwhile, Rep. Jamaal Bowman of New York called criticism of Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg “racist,” then said the quiet part out loud: “It’s time that we ensure Trump is banned from running for any public office again and from there, finally take action to fix our democracy.”
