This prosecution of Trump is persecution, says the Chairman of the Connecticut Republican Party.

Ben Proto tells the Connecticut Post that the indictment of the former president amounts to a weaponization of the justice system.

But another top Connecticut Republican -- state house minority leader Vince Candelora --says he will wait to see the charging documents before he weighs in on the merits of the porn-star payoff charges.

On the Democratic side, Senator Richard Blumenthal says the indictment of Trump demonstrates that nobody is above the law.
