Trump Is In Danger Of Getting Extradited To New York, Florida Attempts To Intervene

More News For You

Donald Trump has had it pretty good down in Mar-a-Lago, his resort home in Florida where he’s been spending a great majority of his time since leaving the Oval Office. Really, his only complaint could be that he’s still nearly completely banished from all of social media, but he’s finding ways to work around that with his own blog site that gets plenty of traction throughout the online morasses of Twitter and beyond.

But now, quite suddenly, there is talk of the former President being plucked from his Palm Beach perch and sent back to the dreary, castle-like facades of New York City…perhaps even to stand trial.

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.

The Sunshine State officials may be working a bit too far ahead, however.

First of all, there’s nothing to indicate that Trump will soon be facing any sort of charges, in Manhattan or elsewhere. Secondly, Trump may very well relocate to one of his other golf clubs for the winter – most likely in Bedminster, New Jersey.
