He said the USA is a “banana republic” – really?

In the wake of the FBI's search of Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence for classified documents, MAGA extremists have pushed their attacks on law enforcement into overdrive.

Ron DeSantis, the MAGA Republican governor of Florida, called the United States a "banana republic" because the Department of Justice is trying to ensure that some of our nation's most sensitive secrets aren't compromised.

MAGA Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is demanding that Congress "defund the FBI".

These antics would be laughable if they weren't so dangerous. Our Democratic majority in Congress is the first and best line of defense against Donald Trump's cult of sycophants. Donate $7 today to get in the fight to expand our majorities in Congress and hold Trump accountable.

Donald Trump's entire career is marred with scandal, graft, and greed. And the presidency just made it worse.

Donald Trump spent four years smashing through democratic norms (and breaking the law along the way), while so many Republican politicians actively helped Trump get away with it or pretended they didn't see what Trump was doing.

Equal justice under law. Those are the words carved in stone above the doors to the Supreme Court.

The Republican Party has abandoned this ideal. They have chosen to give Trump impunity from the rule of law. They oppose holding the rich accountable for paying the taxes they owe under the law. And they attack the FBI for launching investigations to uphold the law.

If we lose accountability for the rich and powerful, then we truly lose government by and for the people. We must stand together and stop this evil assault on our nation.

Should MAGA Republicans take over Congress this November, they'll do everything in their power to protect Trump from the various investigations into his potential crimes.

Chip in $7 today, and let's keep the fight to hold Donald Trump accountable alive.
