Gov. Ron DeSantis said Florida “will not assist” in any extradition request by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg amid what he called “questionable circumstances,” while slamming the charges against former President Trump as “un-American” and as a “weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda.”
The former president and 2024 Republican presidential candidate was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury on Thursday after a years-long investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.
“The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head,” DeSantis tweeted Thursday. “It is un-American.”
