Trump defends indicted congressman

Former United States President Donald Trump issued a statement in support of Representative Jeff Fortenberry after the Republican was indicted by a federal grand jury.

"Isn't it terrible that a Republican Congressman from Nebraska just got indicted for possibly telling some lies to investigators about campaign contributions, when half of the United States Congress lied about made-up scams?” Trump said.

Fortenberry was charged with two counts of making false statements to investigators and one count of scheming to conceal material facts.
