On Monday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis broke his silence over the potential indictment of former President Donald Trump. This past Saturday, Trump said he expects to be arrested by Alvin Bragg’s Manhattan District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday. The probable indictment stems from a multi-year inquiry into whether Trump paid Stormy Daniels money to be silent. Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney, transferred $130,000 to Daniels so she would not reveal the alleged affair. Cohen asserts that Trump repaid him for the payments, and investigators are examining whether Trump falsified company documents to conceal the claimed reimbursement.
If Trump is arrested, he will become the first former president to be prosecuted in the United States. According to Trump, he committed no crime and was the victim of extortion. The Manhattan district attorney’s office, run by Democrat Alvin Bragg, has not commented, and no charges have been filed. A Trump indictment, however, would be a significant moment in the country’s history despite a legal framework that appears far from clear.
In response to the news of the potential historic arrest of a former president, DeSantis stated he has no idea what goes into any hush money to keep a porn star silent about an alleged affair. He said that he could not comment on the matter. DeSantis had a lot to say about Manhattan’s District attorney, who has failed to pursue major crimes in Manhattan, and the fact that he is suddenly targeting Trump for political purposes.
DeSantis stated the Manhattan District Attorney is a Soros-funded prosecutor, and he, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, uses his office to enforce a political agenda at the expense of law enforcement and crime prevention.
DeSantis stated that Bragg had downgraded over 50% of the felonies to misdemeanors. Bragg has said he doesn’t want jail time for most crimes. DeSantis added that he doesn’t know how hush money can be paid to a porn star to secure silence, but that when a prosecutor ignores crimes happening daily in his jurisdiction and decides to pursue an alleged crime from many years ago, then it is politically motivated.
DeSantis expressed his belief that the potential indictment of Trump is wrong before turning his focus back to Soros’ role in electing liberal prosecutors.
DeSantis said that these Soros district attorneys are a threat to civilization. DeSantis stated that Florida would not participate in this, and he has no desire to participate in any sort of Soros-funded circus. DeSantis said Bragg is attempting a political show and virtue signaling for his followers. DeSantis said he has to look after Florida, where he is currently handling significant problems. DeSantis stated that he must devote his time to problems that truly matter to people.
In response to Governor DeSantis’ comments, the former president took to social media. Trump wrote: Ron DeSanctimonious will probably learn about “FALSE ACCUSATIONS & FAKE STORIES” as he gets older, wiser, and better known when a woman unfairly and illegally attacks him, even a classmate who is under the age of 18 (or maybe a man). According to Trump, DeSantis will probably want to fight these misfits as he does.
DeSantis replied that he deals with defamatory stuff every single day and that instead of smearing other Republicans, he focuses on delivering results for the people of Florida and fighting against Joe Biden.
Meanwhile, three Republican chairmen of House committees have demanded records from the New York prosecutor investigating former President Trump’s payments to the adult actress.
Accusing Bragg of potentially committing an unprecedented misuse of prosecutorial authority: indicting a former President who is now running again for the position of president. This indictment comes after Bragg’s office spent years seeking a basis—any basis—on which to file charges, finally deciding on a unique legal theory that has never been tried anywhere in the country and that federal authorities declined to pursue, the congress members wrote.
Several Republican lawmakers and presidential contenders have backed Trump against the potential prosecution, citing George Soros’s contributions to Bragg. Republicans have observed that the Manhattan district attorney has failed to charge multiple crimes while investigating Trump for allegedly fabricating company documents, a misdemeanor.
