Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis reportedly broke his silence Monday about former President Donald Trump’s possible indictment.
Trump announced Saturday that he expects to be arrested Tuesday by the Manhattan District Attorneys Office, which is led by far-left district attorney Alvin Bragg.
The potential indictment relates to a years-long investigation into whether Trump paid hush money to former porn star actress Stormy Daniels.
Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, sent $130,000 to Daniels so she would not disclose her alleged affair.
Cohen claims Trump then reimbursed him for the payments, with authorities investigating whether Trump forged business records to hide the alleged payout.
DeSantis broke his silence on the issue Monday.

“The Manhattan District Attorney is a Soros-funded prosecutor and so he like, other Soros funded prosecutors, they weaponize their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety,” DeSantis said.
“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 added.
DeSantis continued, stating that Soros backed prosecutors like Bragg are a ‘menace to society’ and that he won’t get involved in the political spectacle that a potential Trump indictment is, in his opinion, designed to be.
