Palm Beach Preparing For Possible Trump Arrest
Click here to read the full article (Politico Playbook)
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.
Palm Beach Preparing For Possible Trump Arrest
Well, he’s at Bedminster Golf Club in NJ at the moment, so that should be interesting...
If they don’t explain the charges in the first 5 paragraphs, it means they believe the reader will think it is bogus.
They REALLY are pushing for an all out war.
They think January 6th got sporty? Spin the wheel on arresting Trump and see what happens.
Bet they’re not “prepared”for the consequences....
If true, then they actually WANT an active civil war.
I just wanted to know the charge!
Fake and very Gay
Man, PDJT really has them freaked out. Go ahead and arrest him, I dare them.
A fishing expedition.
Can Cyrus Vance, Jr., Nail Trump?
Insiders say that the Manhattan District Attorney’s investigation has dramatically intensified since the former President left office. “It’s like night and day,” says one. According to another, “They mean business.”
On February 22nd, in an office in White Plains, two lawyers handed over a hard drive to a Manhattan Assistant District Attorney, who, along with two investigators, had driven up from New York City in a heavy snowstorm. Although the exchange didn’t look momentous, it set in motion the next phase of one of the most significant legal showdowns in American history. Hours earlier, the Supreme Court had ordered former President Donald Trump to comply with a subpoena for nearly a decade’s worth of private financial records, including his tax returns. The subpoena had been issued by Cyrus Vance, Jr.
His subpoena required Trump’s accounting firm, Mazars U.S.A., to turn over millions of pages of personal and corporate records, dating from 2011 to 2019
If the tax records contain major revelations, the public probably won’t learn about them anytime soon: the information will likely be kept secret unless criminal charges are filed.
Such extreme precautions are not surprising, given the nature of the case: no previous President has been charged with a criminal offense. If Trump, who remains the Republican Party’s most popular potential Presidential candidate and who recently signalled interest in another run, is charged and convicted, he could end up serving a prison term instead of a second White House term.
The investigative phase of the Trump case will likely be complete before Vance’s term ends, leaving to him the crucial decision of whether to bring criminal charges. But any trial would almost surely rest in the hands of his successor. Daniel R. Alonso, Vance’s former top deputy, who is now a lawyer at Buckley, L.L.P., predicts that if Trump is indicted “it will be nuclear war.”
“Bet they’re not “prepared” for the consequences.”
I wouldn’t be so sure about that, why do you think Yorkie and Merrick Garland are out here claiming the biggest fear is from “white supremist”. They are prepared and they are going to push it, just watch.
According to their carefully developed strategy for the period after communist assumption of power:
Step #8: Indict, try, convict, and lock Trump family up in Guantanamo, Thailand, Libya, or mental institutions;
If there’s a pool, put me down for “bogus”.
Relax. No Manhattan da is gonna dare try such a stunt. He or she knows what’s at stake
You are absolutely correct!
The communists are right on schedule... According to their carefully developed strategy for the period after communist assumption of power:
Step #9: Start the most complete communist purge (based on voter records & internet posted view) in history(AOC already announced plans for the burning/ovens...);
