Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has finally weighed in on the impending impeachment and possible arrest of former President Donald Trump.
DeSantis’ comments are quite interesting and worth reading in full.
“So I’ve seen swirls of rumors,” DeSantis said. “I haven’t seen any facts yet, so I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I do know, the Manhattan district attorney is a Soros-funded prosecutor. And so he, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, is arming his charge to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety.”
“He has downgraded over 50% of felonies to misdemeanors,” DeSantis continued. “He says he doesn’t even want to do jail time for the 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.”
“And so you’re talking about this situation with, and look, I don’t know what’s going on with paying hush money to a porn star to ensure silence about some sort of alleged affair,” he added. “I can’t speak to that, but what I can speak to is that if you have a prosecutor who ignores the crimes that happen every day in his jurisdiction and decides to go back many, many years to try and use something about the shush money payments from porn stars, you know, that’s an example of pursuing a political agenda and weaponizing the office.’
“And I think that’s fundamentally wrong,” he remarked. “I also think it’s important to point out when you talk about these Soros-funded prosecutors, yes, they can make a high-profile politicized prosecution and that’s bad. But the real victims are ordinary New Yorkers, ordinary Americans, and all these different jurisdictions who are victimized every day because of the reckless political agenda these Soros DAs bring to their jobs. They ignore crime and empower criminals. And that hurts people, a lot of people every day.”
“Soros’ district attorneys are a menace to society, and I’m happy to be the only governor in the country to actually remove one from office during my tenure,” he noted.
DeSantis also said his office will not be involved in a “manufacturing crisis” by Soros’ DA.
“We will not participate in this,” he added. “I have no interest in getting involved in some kind of circus manufactured by some Soros DA… He’s trying to put on a political show. He’s trying to do some virtue signaling for his base. I have real issues to deal with here in FL.”
Trump supporters have been roasting DeSantis online for keeping quiet about former President Donald Trump’s possible arrest. It will be worth seeing if they think DeSantis spoke out enough against the political charge in case they think he fired a veiled shot at the former president.
