Rep. Langworthy says indicting Trump would be ‘absurd’

House Republicans are pushing to prioritize their energy plan, the first bill introduced this Congress, for passage this week. U.S. Rep. Nick Langworthy said that the plan is an all-of-the-above proposal that focuses on increasing domestic fossil fuel production, rolling back the Biden administration’s policies, and allowing room for renewable sources.

Langworthy believes that natural gas is a clean and plentiful fuel that the U.S. can produce at home, stating that wind turbines alone cannot solve the energy problem. Meanwhile, a Manhattan grand jury is reportedly considering indicting former President Donald Trump on charges related to hush money payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.

However, Langworthy dismissed the case against Trump, calling it “absurd” and politically motivated. He stated that he has not seen any outrage from Trump supporters, only bewilderment, and has not heard any plans for major protests.

As a strong advocate for the Trump campaign in 2016 and 2020, Langworthy did not attend the former president’s first rally for the 2024 campaign. Instead, he believes that highlighting the Biden administration’s failures with multiple candidates is the better approach.

Langworthy emphasized that the American people, especially the registered Republicans, will make the decision for the 2024 election.
