Adam Reiss and Rebecca Shabad reports for NBC News that after former President Donald Trump announced earlier this week that he got a letter saying he will likely be indicted for his role in the Jan. 6 insurrection he called Rep. Elise Stefanik. Trump called House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and Stefanik, who represents the 21st Congressional District in New York including Rensselaer County, and asked them to rally support from other House members. Stefanik has endorsed Trump in his re-election campaign. After the call from Trump, Stefanik said, "We have yet again another example of Joe Biden’s weaponized Department of Justice targeting his top political opponent, Donald Trump."
