Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ-05) filed a bill to defund the district attorney that indicted former President Donald Trump.
Biggs introduced the bill, HR5267, on Friday; it would prevent any federal funds from going to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office. As of press time, the text of the bill — dubbed the “Withholding Investments from Lawless Litigators in States Act,” or “WILLIS Act,” named after the district attorney — wasn’t available on the Congress bill site.
In a statement, Biggs called the indictments “some of the weakest and most ridiculous” he’d ever seen. He accused the federal government of wasting taxpayer dollars for a witch hunt amid a historically poor economy.”
“President Trump and the 18 others mentioned were indicted for mundane activities like sending a text message, making a phone call, reserving a conference room, and tweeting,” said Biggs. “This is a blatant attack on American freedoms. Our national debt is at an all-time high. We cannot afford to have our federal government funding corrupt DA Offices’ quests for national fame through political witch hunts.”
