  • Trump's allies and enemies took to Twitter en masse to weigh in on his second indictment.

  • His old enemies were nothing short of gleeful and vindicated.

  • Meanwhile, Trumpworld roiled with rage against the prosecutors pursuing Trump.

Donald Trump broke the news himself tonight on Truth Social: He is being indicted on charges related to his handling of classified documents.

Reaction across the Beltway and outside was swift. The common refrain from Democrats and Trump's opponents within the GOP was that nobody was above the law.

Michael Cohen, Trump's one-time fixer turned nemesis, had some words for his ex-boss too.

Republican Sen. Mitt Romney, a longtime critic of Trump, said the former president "brought these charges upon himself by not only taking classified documents, but by refusing to simply return them when given numerous opportunities."

For some Trump's supporters, it was an example of double standards in the justice system.

Rep. Jim Jordan called it a "sad day for America."

House Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy called it a "dark day" for the US, and said he stands with Trump in the face of these looming legal woes.

Sen. Josh Hawley worried about the state of the republic.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene seemed to have faith that Trump will "win in the end."

Rep. Matt Gaetz was also optimistic about Trump's chances of coming out on top in this second indictment.

Charlie Kirk started rallying the Trump support squad for a jaunt to Miami in support of their man.

Sen. Marco Rubio accused "these people" — presumably, Trump's political opponents — of being behind the charges.

And Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor turned Trump lawyer, popped into a livestream pronto.
