DeSantis Sounds Off Against District Attorneys With Hidden Agendas

Last week, former President Trump was indicted after days and days of speculation about whether or not an indictment would actually happen. This week, the president is set for arraignment in New York.

Already, various demonstrations have occurred from those who believe the indictment is wrong and politically motivated. Trump himself described the entire situation as a witch hunt without any merit or standing.

Leading this indictment is Alvin Bragg, the district attorney of Manhattan, who remains under a microscope, all things considered.

In fact, just earlier this month, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sounded off against the dangers of district attorneys who are backed by liberal billionaire George Soros, according to Newsmax.

DeSantis on District Attorneys Backed by Soros

Recent years have seen Soros backing various left-wing officials either holding or vying for positions of power. Many of these officials have taken heat for not upholding the law, letting criminals skate by, or otherwise falling to meet the needs of their constituents.

As for district attorneys with ties to Soros, the Florida governor said they are “meances” to both the rule of law and society itself. DeSantis also made a point of noting that Bragg himself once spoke about reducing felonies to misdemeanors and working to keep criminals on the streets.

Later, the Florida governor stressed that Bragg is doing the inverse of this with Trump, by trying to turn a misdemeanor offense into a felony. This, DeSantis explained, is a prime example of the Manhattan district attorney using the law to play politics.

A Major Problem

It goes without saying that district attorneys should not be picking and choosing when they enforce the law and when they don’t.

Likewise, it poses problems when district attorneys play games with crimes of various statures, by trying to make misdemeanors into felonies or felonies into misdemeanors.

At this point, everyone will have to stay tuned to see what happens next with the Trump indictment.
