Moments after former President Donald Trump was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury, Gov. Ron DeSantis has denounced the prosecution and indictment, calling it "un-American."
"The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head. It is un-American. The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent. Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda," stated Gov. Ron DeSantis
Gov. DeSantis recently said that he would not get involved in the case, but appears to have changed his position with this statement.
"The NY Grand jury’s decision to indict Fmr Pres Trump is yet again another example of the Dems weaponization of our Justice system. The Soros backed NY DA Alvin Bragg is trying to escalate a case other courts would not even take up. The accused misdemeanor was also increased to felony charge by the DA and first time in history a Fmr U.S. President has ever been indicted.
This is clearly an attempt to intimidate Pres. Trump and influence the upcoming 2024 elections. The accusation regarding “hush money” should have been cut dry when Stormy Daniels herself signed a letter admitting no such transaction took place.
This is a clear witch hunt to distract and help a failing Biden in his attempt to remain in the Oval Office," stated Rep. Cory Mills.
