DeSantis Comes To Trump’s Defence, Blasts ‘Soros-Funded’ AD Amid President’s Possible Indictment

Donald Trump took to Truth Social over the weekend to urge his supporters to ‘take back our nation’ after revealing he could be indicted on Tuesday over an old claim that he paid silent money to a star movie theater before the 2016 election to cover up an alleged affair. Trump has denied any wrongdoing, insisting he never slept with his “horseface” accuser.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has broken his silence on Donald Trump’s possible impending indictment, saying he wouldn’t be surprised if the Manhattan Distract prosecutor in the case tries to arm his office in the interest of party politics.

“I’ve seen rumors swirling around, I haven’t seen any facts yet, and so I don’t know what’s going to happen,” the governor told reporters at a Monday news conference. “But I know this: the Manhattan prosecutor is a Soros-funded prosecutor, and so he, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, they are militarizing their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law. and the public. security,” DeSantis said, without referring to Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg by name.

“I have no interest in getting involved in a circus fabricated by a Soros DA,” DeSantis added.

DeSantis’ comments echo those made by Trump on Saturday in a Truth Social article in which he announced his possible indictment. Trump also referenced that Bragg was ‘funded by George Soros’ and previously criticized the Manhattan prosecutor for pursuing him in a political ‘witch hunt’ investigation instead of tackling violent crime in New York. .

Hungarian-American hedge fund manager and “philanthropist” George Soros has spent decades and billions of dollars funding political leaders, non-governmental organizations, educational institutions and judges, in the United States and around the world. world. The billionaire has perhaps rightly become the go-to boogieman for many Republicans who criticize dark liberal big money in politics.

Bragg reportedly received over $1 million from a Soros-funded group during his 2021 campaign for DA.

While defending Trump against the Manhattan DA, DeSantis, a potential challenger to the former president for the 2024 Republican nomination, declined to delve into details of the case that could land Trump indicted.

“I don’t know what goes into paying a porn star money to get silence on some type of alleged affair, I can’t speak to that,” the Florida governor said, quickly adding “This is an example of pursuing a political agenda.

DeSantis is the latest Republican to speak about Trump’s possible indictment, with GOP House of Representatives lawmakers announcing plans to seek congressional testimony from Bragg on the case.

Trump believes he faces a grand jury indictment this week over a payment his former attorney allegedly made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election to keep quiet about an alleged affair he she allegedly had with the real estate mogul in 2006. Trump has vocally denied ever having slept with ‘Horseface Daniels’ and claimed the indictment was the Democrats’ latest attempt to stop him from running in 2024 after Russiagate and two impeachments failed to get the job done.
