DeSantis Responds to Looming Trump Indictment – ‘Fundamentally Wrong’
On Monday, Gov. Ron DeSantis blasted the looming indictment of former President Donald Trump, accusing Soros-funded district attorney Alvin Bragg of “weaponizing” his office to suit a “political agenda.”
“So I’ve seen rumors swirl, I have not seen any facts yet, and so I don’t know what’s going to happen.” the Florida governor told reporters. “But I do know this: the Manhattan district attorney is a Soros-funded prosecutor.”
“And so he, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, they weaponize their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety. He has downgraded over 50% of the felonies to misdemeanors. He says he doesn’t want to even have jail time for the vast, vast majority of crimes, and what we’ve seen in Manhattan is we’ve seen the crime rate go up and we’ve seen citizens become less safe.”

DeSantis continued, calling the potential charges against the former president “fundamentally wrong,”
“I don’t know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star to secure silence over some type of alleged affair. I just – I can’t speak to that. But what I can speak to, is that if you have a prosecutor who is ignoring crimes happening every single day in his jurisdiction, and he chooses to go back many, many years ago, to try to use something about porn star hush money payments. You know that’s an example of pursuing a political agenda and weaponizing the office… I think that that’s fundamentally wrong.”

DeSantis also slammed the efforts of liberal billionaire George Soros to fund leftist district attorney campaigns across the country and referenced his encounter with former Hillsborough state attorney Andrew Warren.
“The Soros district attorneys are a menace to society and I’m just glad that I’m the only governor in the country that’s actually removed one from office during my tenure.”
The Florida governor then told reporters that he had “no interest” getting involved in what he called a “manufactured circus” by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. “[Bragg] is trying to do a political spectacle. He’s trying to virtue signal for his base.”
“I’ve got real issues I got to deal with here in the state of Florida… We’ve got so many things pending in front of the legislature. I’ve got to spend my time on issues that actually matter to people. I can’t spend my time worrying about things of that nature. So we’re not going to be involved in it in any way. I’m fighting for Floridians, and I’m fighting back against Biden.”
