DeSantis Says Trump Indictment Distorted GOP Primary
Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday revealed that former President Donald Trump’s indictment is the key reason why his campaign is failing.
DeSantis made the revelation in an interview with CBN News’ David Brody, adding that the former president’s indictment distorted the GOP primary campaign.
“I would say, if I would have one thing changed, I wish Trump hadn’t been indicted on any of this stuff. I mean, honestly, I think from Alvin Bragg on, I’ve criticized the cases, I think someone like Bragg would not have brought that case if it was anyone other than Donald Trump, and so someone like that is distorting justice, which is bad. But I also think it distorted the primary, and I think those have been the main issues that have happened,” DeSantis said.
DeSantis added that the indictment sucked out a lot of oxygen. The Florida governor maintained that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and others prosecuting the former president misused their power.
Desantis says he wishes Trump was never indicted, not because it was a grave abuse of the justice system, but because it hurt him in the primary

Bragg charged Trump with 34 counts for allegedly falsifying business records to pay $130,000 hush money to adult movie actress Stormy Daniels. Daniels received the money so she can remain silent on an alleged extramarital affair between her and Trump.
DeSantis noted Bragg is a George Soros-backed district attorney before adding that all Soros-backed DAs view the law as an extension of politics.
7-in-10 Americans believe that Trump's four indictments are political and nearly 6-in-10 believe Biden is involved including 54% of blacks and 58% of Hispanics.
The witch hunt of President Trump has backfired.

The Florida governor, however, added that Trump’s multiple indictments are all part of the media and Democrats’ plan to win the 2024 elections.
“I think the Democrats have a plan on this, I think the media has a plan on this and I think if it gets to the point six months from now where Trump is the presumptive nominee, and he’s having to go through all this, they have a plan for how they’re gonna ride this out,” the Florida governor added.
