Trump Ramps Up Controversy with Senate Republicans

Former President Donald Trump is ramping up controversy with Senate Republicans, calling for primary challengers for those who do not support investigating the Biden family's business deals.

Trump's words came just before he received his own new charges over his role in the events of Jan. 6, 2021.

"Senate GOP aides and strategists argue they can’t do much regarding the Biden family’s business dealings because they don’t have the power to issue subpoenas as the Senate’s minority party," the Hill reported.

"But GOP senators aren’t giving Trump much rhetorical support either — in sharp contrast from prominent House Republicans such as Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)," it added.

Trump's words follow his latest charges that include a Thursday court appearance in Washington, D.C.

"Trump was indicted on four federal charges out of the probe, including conspiracy to defraud the United States; conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding; obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding; and conspiracy against rights," Fox News reported.

"Trump has been ordered to appear in federal court in Washington D.C. for his arraignment on Thursday, Aug. 3, at 4:00 p.m.," it added.

The push to primary Republican senators who refuse to investigate Biden might be a tough stance that appeals to Trump's supporters but could be the least of his concerns as he faces his own legal battles.

In addition to the new charges in Washington, the former president faces dozens of charges related to classified documents found in his Florida home and a potential case involving Georgia election interference allegations.

The GOP's senators will be cautious in any response to Trump given his current situation even when it comes to dealing with an investigation of the Biden family.
