Army of Lawmakers Accompany Donald Trump in New York City to Court

‘The Cavalry Has Arrived’


Almost a dozen Republican lawmakers trekked up to New York City on Thursday to support former President Donald Trump as he faces charges of falsifying business records years ago, brought by a Democrat district attorney in the midst of the 2024 presidential election.

The lawmakers included Reps. Andy Biggs (AZ), Lauren Boebert (CO), Michael Cloud (TX), Eli Crane (AZ), Matt Gaetz (FL), Bob Good (VA), Diana Harshbarger (TN), Anna Paulina Luna (FL), Ralph Norman (SC), Andy Ogles (TN), and Mike Waltz (FL).

“The cavalry has arrived to the courthouse,” a Gaetz aide posted on X.


The dozen formed the largest contingent of lawmakers accompanying Trump to court to date. Earlier this week, Sens. Rick Scott (FL), Tommy Tuberville (AL), JD Vance (OH), Rep. Byron Donalds (FL), House Speaker Mike Johnson (LA), Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, and Rep. Cory Mills (FL), North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, and Vivek Ramaswamy showed up to support Trump.

They have acted as his surrogate on the airwaves, commenting and answering reporters’ questions that Trump cannot.

Trump is under a strict gag order and unable to comment on witnesses, the prosecution team other than District Attorney Alvin Bragg, other court staff, their families, jurors, and Judge Juan Merchan’s family — which includes a daughter who raises money for Democrats. Merchan has fined Trump for violating the gag order nine times and threatened jail time if he violates the order.

But this week, as the prosecution’s “star witness” Michael Cohen — who has been attacking Trump in recent days — has taken the stand, Trump’s backers have torn into him, highlighting his checkered past and his criminal record.

Shortly after arriving at the courtroom, Luna posted on X a transcript of Cohen admitting that he lied to Congress in 2019, adding: “Why is a serial, self-admitted perjurer like Michael Cohen still being taken seriously?”
