Donald Trump has been charged with 37 counts of unauthorised possession of classified documents and of obstructing efforts to reclaim them.

As the former president campaigns to win back the White House in 2024, the BBC asked Republicans for their reaction to the indictment.

The case was brought by an independent special counsel and approved by a grand jury in Florida - but conservatives on our panel see an effort to disrupt Mr Trump's presidential run.

And they ask why President Joe Biden, a Democrat, has not been charged for taking classified materials out of secure locations (there is an ongoing investigation into Mr Biden, led by Trump-appointed prosecutor Robert Hur).

Kathleen, a strong anti-abortion voter, backed Trump twice. Though she wants a new Republican nominee, she sympathises with the former president.

I'm really weary of all the politically motivated actions against Mr Trump. It just never ends.It seems like somebody's trying to get him out of the race, and they've been doing this from from the beginning.
