Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) shouted in support of Donald Trump outside of a Manhattan court, as the former president was arraigned on 34 charges of falsifying business documents.

Other Trump-aligned politicians briefly joined Greene. Embattled Rep. George Santos (R-New York) also visited the courthouse briefly before the scheduled protest. He called the event a “media firestorm.” He stayed for only 30 minutes.
