    DeSantis Issues Response to Trump Indictment, Vows Retribution

    Published on

    In the wake of the indictment of his primary rival in the 2024 Republican presidential primary, former President Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida and Republican presidential candidate, stated that corrupting the law for political purposes corrodes democracy.

    In a Thursday evening tweet, DeSantis did not defend Trump, who faces a seven-count indictment related to his management of classified information. Instead, he focused on the issue of law-bending for partisan purposes.

    “The weaponization of federal law enforcement represents a mortal threat to a free society. We have for years witnessed an uneven application of the law depending upon political affiliation,” the governor wrote.

    “Why so zealous in pursuing Trump yet so passive about Hillary or Hunter?” he said, referring to the lack of charges against former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in her email scandal and the long-running barren probe of President Joe Biden’s son.

    DeSantis concluded his speech by stating that, as president, he would reform the Department of Justice.

    “The DeSantis administration will bring accountability to the DOJ, excise political bias and end weaponization once and for all,” he said.

    Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, a candidate for the Republican nomination, stated that politicizing the justice system degrades America.

    “One thing that makes America a city on the hill is confidence in our justice system. And today, what we see is a justice system where the scales are awaited. That seems to be the outcome of where we are today,” Scott told Fox News.

    “As president of the United States, I would purge all of the injustices and impurities in our system so that every American can have confidence that they will be seen by the lady of justice with a blindfold on. That is what we need in this nation,” he said.

    Others, including Elon Musk, the proprietor of Twitter, stated that the justice system no longer appeared to be about justice.

    Trump himself agitated against what he termed “warfare for the law.”

    In a video on his Truth Social platform, the former president stated, “They are attempting to destroy my reputation in order to win the election.”

    “I am a man without guilt. We will demonstrate this again. Seven years of proving it have led us to this point. “Extremely unfair, but that’s the way things are,” he said.

    Alan Dershowitz, a former professor of law at Harvard, told Newsmax that the case is concerning because it could pave the way for competing political prosecutions depending on who is in power.

    He expressed concern that the United States could become “Turkey, Iran, or a nation where suspicion is equivalent to conviction on one side of the political spectrum but not the other.” However, there must be one system and one standard for law enforcement.”

    “If there is a certain level of evidence of serious crime against anybody on either side — whether it’s the sitting president, the son of the sitting president, the former president, the same rule has to be applicable to all of them,” Dershowitz said. CONTINUE READING…
