Maddow jokingly said that she did not expect to be talking with Clinton under such circumstances, to which Clinton agreed. Though the former Secretary of State appeared quite joyous in the moment, she went on to say that it was a moment of "profound sadness that we have a former president who has been indicted for so many charges that went right to the heart of whether or not our democracy would survive."
Clinton went on to say that Trump "set out to defraud the United States of America and the citizens of our nation."
She claimed she would wait to comment further until after she knew what the indictment specifically said, adding that "this is a terrible moment for our country to have a former president accused of these terribly important crimes."
"The only satisfaction may be that the system is working," she said.
The Trump campaign released a statement on Monday evening about the indictments in Georgia, which said:
"Like Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, Deranged Jack Smith, and New York AG Letitia James, Fulton County, GA's radical Democrat District Attorney Fani Willis is a rabid partisan who is campaigning and fundraising on a platform of prosecuting President Trump through these bogus indictments. Ripping a page from Crooked Joe Biden's playbook, Willis has strategically stalled her investigation to try and maximally interfere with the 2024 presidential race and damage the dominant Trump campaign. All of these corrupt Democrat attempts will fail.
"Combined with the intentionally slow-walked investigations by the Biden-Smith goon squads and the false charges in New York, the timing of this latest coordinated strike by a biased prosecutor in an overwhelmingly Democrat jurisdiction not only betrays the trust of the American people, but also exposes true motivation driving their fabricated accusations.
"They could have brought this two and half years ago, yet they chose to do this for election interference reasons in the middle of President Trump's successful campaign. He is not only leading all Republicans by a lot but he is leading against Joe Biden in almost every poll. President Trump represents the greatest threat to these Democrats' political futures (and the greatest hope for America).
"The legal double-standard set against President Trump must end. Under the Crooked Biden Cartel, there are no rules for Democrats, while Republicans face criminal charges for exercising their First Amendment rights.
"These activities by Democrat leaders constitute a grave threat to American democracy and are direct attempts to deprive the American people of their rightful choice to cast their vote for President. Call it election interference or election manipulation-it is a dangerous effort by the ruling class to suppress the choice of the people. It is un-American and wrong.
"They are taking away President Trump's First Amendment right to free speech, and the right to challenge a rigged and stolen election that the Democrats do all the time. The ones who should be prosecuted are the ones who created the corruption.
"President Trump will never give up and will never stop fighting for you, as we all work to Make America Great Again in 2024."
However, Trump is not the only one named in the indictment. It includes the following names: Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, Mark Meadows, Kenneth Chesebro, Jeff Clark, Jenna Ellis, Ray Smith III, Robert Sheeley, Michael Roman, David Shafer, Shawn Still, Stephen Lee, Harrison Floyd, Trevian Kutti, Sidney Powerll, Cathleen Latham, Scott Hall, and Misty Hampton.
