Palm Beach preparing for a possible NY Trump indictment

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis could intervene in an extradition.

SCOOP: PALM BEACH MAKES CONTINGENCY PLANS IN CASE TRUMP IS INDICTED — Law enforcement officials in Palm Beach County, Fla., have actively prepared for the possibility that Manhattan District Attorney CY VANCE could indict former President DONALD TRUMP while he’s at Mar-a-Lago, according to two high-ranking county officials involved in planning sessions.

Among the topics discussed in those meetings: how to handle the thorny extradition issues that could arise if an indictment moves forward.

An obscure clause in Florida’s statute on interstate extradition gives Gov. RON DESANTIS the ability to intervene and even investigate whether an indicted “person ought to be surrendered” to law enforcement officials from another state — which means that as Mar-a-Lago prepares to close down for the season and Trump relocates to Bedminster, N.J., it isn’t just the Florida heat he’s leaving behind: He could lose a key piece of political protection.

I hope he is indicted but on what? Tax evasion? I just feel like this man has snake-lawyered himself into a cocoon that law enforcement cannot penetrate.


But of ot jappens...Trump trapped indefinitely in Florida, in a town that hates him.

Some poetic justice there; however its unlikely that Florida would risk ticking off New York to protect Trump. The blowback from that would be fierce, probably not worth it even for DeSantis.

I would never count on DeSantis doing the right thing, regardless of the pressure. On the contrary, I see this as very easy for DeSantis to deny, for the purposes of drumming up support from conservatives for their perennial victim.

It's a shame Palm Beach has never been able to throw him out.

Wait until he goes to Bedminster.

Not that I believe any of this will happen, anyway.

I vote for this too. And I know lots of NJ residents who would love to visit Bedminster just to watch the perp walk. Not to mention a gaggle from NY.

More political theater may be ahead. DeSantis could play his role to the hilt “protecting” Trump and even when Florida folds, he would still come out way ahead. Trumpers have long since abandoned any moral or intellectual attachment to reality - all that counts now is image.
