The Manhattan DA’s office seems to gather more and MORE information for a state grand jury to charge ex-President Donald Trump and his organization with criminal conduct….
I have thought that such a case would not be brought against a former American President, but I now believe I was wrong….
Trump’s actions , revealed extensively in past NY Times expose’s make it almost impossible NOT indict him…(It appears that a case IS being constructed thru the actions and non-actions of Barr and others that tried to cover for Trump while he was in office)
Law enforcement in Palm County Florida are actually planning on how they would handle a request from New York to extradite Trump back for arraignment ….(I’m sure NY prosecutors would make a deal with Trump’s lawyer to produce him for arraignment)
Sooner of later Trump won’t be worried about 2024….
He’ll be worried about staying out of a cell?
Oh, and there are others he’ll have to deal with in the NY Attorney General , IRS, and Wash DC and Georgia DA’s and the US Attorney in NY going after his old lawyer buddy Rudy….
Republicans lawmakers kissing the ass of a guy fighting to stay out of a cell?
Who could make this stuff up?
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.
“The statute leaves room for interpretation that the governor has the power to order a review and potentially not comply with the extradition notice,” says JOE ABRUZZO, clerk of the Circuit Court of Palm Beach County, the official who would be in charge of opening a potential fugitive-at-large case.
One wrinkle to Abruzzo’s potential role in all of this: He is a former close associate of President JOE BIDEN’S younger brother, FRANK. Abruzzo tells Playbook that despite his friendship with the Biden family, “the full extent of the law will be followed and carried out appropriately, without bias.”
If an indictment comes down while Trump is in Bedminster for the summer, this could all play out very differently. New Jersey’s extradition statute is similar to Florida’s, giving the governor the power to investigate an out-of-state warrant. But its governor is Democrat PHIL MURPHY, who is no fan of Trump’s, and would not likely intervene to stop Trump’s extradition. In the event of an indictment, Trump’s lawyers could also negotiate a condition of surrender, which could cut local law enforcement out. An attorney for Trump declined to comment….
