DeSantis Criticizes Manhattan DA’s Investigation into Trump’s Possible Indictment (Video)

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis spoke out on Monday about the possibility of former President Donald Trump being indicted by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, The Daily Caller reports.

Trump has stated that he expects to be arrested on Tuesday in relation to a years-long investigation into hush money payments made to former porn star actress Stormy Daniels.

DeSantis criticized Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, calling him a “Soros-funded prosecutor” and alleging that he, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, uses his office to push a political agenda 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 even want to have jail time for the vast majorities of crimes,” DeSantis said. “These Soros district attorneys are a menace to society.”

DeSantis also questioned why Bragg was focusing on the hush money payments, stating 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, that’s an example of pursuing a political agenda and weaponizing the office.”

The potential indictment against Trump stems from allegations that his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, sent $130,000 to Daniels to keep her from disclosing her alleged affair with Trump.

Cohen claims that Trump reimbursed him for the payments and that Trump forged business records to hide the payout.

DeSantis stated that he will not be “getting involved” in the “political spectacle” and will instead focus on governing his own state.

“I think that’s fundamentally wrong,” he said of Bragg’s potential indictment of Trump.
