PANAMA CITY, FLORIDA — Governor DeSantis will not get involved in the possible indictment of former President Trump by a Manhattan prosecutor, he stated at a press conference on Monday.
“We have no interest in getting involved in what is a political spectacle created by a Soros-funded prosecutor,” the governor said.
“I don’t know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star to secure silence over some type of alleged affair,” DeSantis said, taking a stab at the former president.
Instead, the governor chose to point out the problem with Soros-funded prosecutors, of which one he took credit for removing – former Florida State Attorney Andrew Warren.
The focus of the press conference was the governor’s support for legislation to ban the use of central bank digital currency (CBDC) in the state in order to keep the government from surveilling and controlling the finances of Floridians.
According to his own posts on social media, Donald Trump claims that he will be arrested on Tuesday by order of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is reportedly investigating the former commander-in-chief for felony falsification of business records.
Trump’s call to his followers to protest if he is arrested was met with skepticism among some popular conservative commentators on social media – likely impacted by Tucker Carlson’s recent exposé questioning the official January 6 narrative, suggesting that it could have been a setup to discredit Trump supporters.
“Many people that I have spoken to suspect this is one giant setup and Trump is in on it, too. They say our corrupt government wants to incite chaos, and influence patriots to make poor decisions. This is one way to do it, and Trump has agreed to help accelerate the loss of freedom,” wrote the user Suburban Black Man on Twitter – adding that he believes in the former president’s innocence.
