NY War Room: Why Do Long Island Republicans Remain Silent on Trump’s Indictment?
August 4, 2023
New York, NY – The silence is deafening as vulnerable Long Island Republicans Nick LaLota, George Santos, and Anthony D’Esposito remain SILENT on Donald Trump’s third indictment. Long Island Republicans continue to display the GOP’s hypocrisy as they remain steadfastly devoted to Donald Trump with no regard for the various federal and state indictments he currently faces.
A reminder of Long Island Republicans pledging allegiance to Trump:
- MAGA Republican Nick LaLota reaffirmed his support for Donald Trump by posting a photo of him at the RNC as a Trump delegate and labeling Trump’s previous federal indictment “political retaliation.”
- In the past week, MAGA Republican and serial fraudster George Santos affirmed his loyalty to Donald Trump by saying, “when they come crawling Trump needs to shut them out permanently, it’s the only way NY will ever have a real GOP” and “Trump is in trouble with this kind of deal going around. #MAGA2024Trump.”
- MAGA Republican Anthony D’Esposito previously called attempts to hold Donald Trump accountable a “political witch hunt.”
“MAGA Extremist Long Island Republicans like Nick LaLota, George Santos, and Anthony D’Esposito are Trump’s henchmen in Congress as they undermine our democracy and guard Trump from accountability despite the multitude of federal indictments he faces,” HMP NY Press Secretary Alisha Heng said. “New Yorkers will not stand by as LaLota, Santos, and D’Esposito push election denial and conspiracy theories, and they will be voted out of office in 2024.”
