As Donald Trump continues to stew down at Mar-a-Lago, plotting what is sure to be a profound future in American politics over the next several years, there are now renewed concerns that his goals could be stunted by prosecutors from the Southern District of New York.
The SDNY has been trying to nail Trump for years…maybe even longer. It was only after he became President that they were able to gain the necessary traction to gather his tax returns and whatever other “evidence” they’ve been salivating over all the while.
Now, in a sign that the investigation may be getting serious, Palm Beach officials are starting to wonder what sort of role they may have in the possible extradition of Trump from The Sunshine State back to The Big Apple.
Law enforcement officials in Palm Beach County, Florida are reportedly developing a contingency plan in case Donald Trump is indicted by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.
As the former president continues to wage war with political foes from Mar-a-Lago, Trump and his businesses are still under a grand jury investigation into allegations of banking and tax fraud. This raises the possibility of Trump being extradited to New York if he’s charged with wrongdoing on these matters. Politico reported Thursday that Florida officials are holding discussions about what they would do in that scenario.
According to the report, Florida has an interstate extradition statute that would allow Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) “to intervene and even investigate whether an indicted ‘person ought to be surrendered’ to law enforcement officials from another state.” Trump and DeSantis are known to be allies, and the former has suggested that he would consider the governor as his running mate if he runs for president again — though DeSantis and Trump could also be formidable rivals in 2024.
