Maryland Rep. Andy Harris: Trump indictment shows US is ‘banana republic where the justice system is weaponized’

April 3, 2023

Rep. Andy Harris, a supporter of former President Donald Trump and the only Republican in Maryland’s congressional delegation, said Friday that Trump’s indictment shows “we live in a third world banana republic where the justice system is weaponized against political opponents.” Harris, who represents the 1st Congressional District of Harford County, the Eastern Shore and part of Baltimore County, was among a number of Trump loyalists in the U.S. House rallying to the former president’s defense by alleging the indictment was politically motivated.
