Florida will not extradite Trump – DeSantis

Florida news

The former US leader is a Florida resident, and is expected to be arraigned next week.

Donald Trump’s potential top rival for the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nomination, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, has ripped the New York City prosecutor behind the criminal indictment of the former president.

“Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda,” DeSantis said in a tweet on Thursday.

So far there has been no reports of any potential extradition requests, as a spokesman for the Manhattan district attorney’s office told AP that prosecutors had reached out to Trump’s legal team to “arrange a surrender” and a court appearance, expected sometime next week.

DeSantis previously said he wouldn’t get involved in the case “in any way,” indicating that he wouldn’t try to help block the Florida resident’s extradition to New York, but has now echoed Trump’s belief that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg “is stretching the law to target a political opponent.”

“The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head. It is un-American,” DeSantis added.

Trump did not reveal his next steps, but warned in a post on Truth Social that this “witch-hunt will backfire massively on Joe Biden,” while his lawyer Joe Tacopina vowed to “vigorously fight this political prosecution in court.”

  1. What a massive slimy scumbag this Bush acolyte is.

    “I will not get involved” is NOT the same as saying “I will block this clearly unjustified arrest and prevent extradition to New York (something a governor CAN legally do)”.

    This is typical RINO grandstanding, the kind his bosses in the Bush family pulled for decades. Fake outrage, feigned solidarity for popularity points.

    Very disappointed in this dude.

    But it’s all political theatre anyway. The trump arrest is just more distraction from the violent LGBT’s and collapsing banks. They were always just going to rig the ever living piss out of the 2024 election. The machines are probably already programmed.

  2. Meanwhile the NZ MSM masterbates itself into a frenzy over Trump being arrested while the rest of the population isn’t bothered. Still not being able to let go that their paymaster general, Jacinda, isn’t in the limelight who would of lamented over it they push it in a sycophantic way.

    Pathetic!
