Even a few of Trump’s 2024 challengers have rallied to his protection: Former Vice President Mike Pence, who solely lately acknowledged that Trump was “fallacious” to almost get him killed on January 6, described Bragg’s investigation as “politically charged,” whereas Vivek Ramaswamycondemned” the potential indictment and urged his opponents within the GOP major to do the identical. Nikki Haley, in the meantime, has tried to maintain her distance, as has DeSantis, who has but to declare his candidacy however has nonetheless confronted withering assaults from Trump for months. Such assaults have largely amounted to imply nicknames, corresponding to “Meatball Ron,” however have additionally included lurid insinuations in regards to the Florida governor and a authorized effort to get him kicked out of workplace.

DeSantis, for his half, has urged he wouldn’t be coming to Trump’s assist, telling reporters Monday that does not know “what goes into paying hush cash to a porn star.” However, he parroted most of the assaults Trump and his allies have unleashed on Bragg: “The Manhattan district lawyer is a Soros-funded prosecutor,” DeSantis stated. “And so he, like different Soros-funded prosecutors, they weaponize their workplace to impose a political agenda on society on the expense of the rule of legislation and public security.”
