Trump Claims Cuellar Targeted by Biden Over Border Stance Amid Indictment

Former President Donald Trump has spoken out about the indictment of Democratic Representative Henry Cuellar. Mr. Trump believes that Mr. Cuellar has been targeted by the Biden administration because of his strong support for border control.

In a recent post on Truth Social, Mr. Trump accused the Biden administration of going after Mr. Cuellar because he refused to align with their open border policies. He went on to criticize President Biden, referring to him as “Crooked Joe” and warning that there will be consequences for how his administration has operated.

Mr. Cuellar and his wife were indicted on charges of conspiracy and bribery, which are related to alleged payoffs from an oil and gas firm owned by the Azerbaijani government and a bank based in Mexico City. It is alleged that the payoffs were made through a Texas-based shell company owned by Mrs. Cuellar. Despite the indictment, Mr. Cuellar has maintained his innocence and expressed his intention to continue running for reelection.

Following the indictment, Democratic Representative Dean Phillips called for Mr. Cuellar to resign. He stressed the importance of upholding trust in the government and stated that officials under indictment should step down from their positions.

Before the indictment, Mr. Cuellar had been vocal about his concerns regarding the influx of illegal drugs and migrants at the border. He co-founded the Democrats for Border Security Task Force and has emphasized the impact of the crisis on border communities and the country as a whole.

It is clear that Mr. Cuellar’s indictment has sparked controversy and drawn strong reactions from both sides of the political aisle. The situation continues to unfold, and it remains to be seen what the implications will be for Mr. Cuellar’s political future.
