DeSantis calls prosecution ‘un-American’ and won’t cooperate with extradition
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is Donald Trump’s current arch-enemy for the 2024 Republican nomination, called the indictment “un-American” and twice accused Manhattan DA’s Alvin Bragg of ” It is backed by Soros,” he said.
Weaponizing the legal system to advance the political agenda upends the rule of law.
The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and pardon criminal activity. But now he has expanded the law to target his political opponents.
Florida will not support an extradition request given the questionable circumstances of this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda issues.
Trump is expected to cooperate and turn himself in early next week, and an extradition is not believed to be possible or necessary.
