Democrats are determined to destroy Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Liberals are terrified at the prospect of DeSantis running for president in 2024.
Now Ron DeSantis is going on trial for this jaw-dropping reason.
Ever since Donald Trump began running for president in 2015 Democrats adopted a strategy of waging lawfare against their political opponents.
What this means is Democrats weaponized law enforcement and the courts to take down their political opponents.
Democrats are now giving Ron DeSantis the Trump treatment.
An elected Democrat sheriff in Texas opened up a phony criminal investigation into DeSantis based on sham charges surrounding DeSantis flying 50 illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard.
High-profile Democrats like California Governor Gavin Newsom demanded Attorney General Merrick Garland prosecute DeSantis on kidnapping and RICO charges.
And now Ron DeSantis must head to court to defend his decision to suspend State Attorney Andrew Warren after Warren pledged to refuse to enforce the state’s new ban on abortions after 15 weeks.
Warren also declined to fully enforce Florida’s anti-rioting law which the legislature passed in 2021 after the Black Lives Matter insurrection.
“The governor is entrusted by the people of Florida to utilize his constitutional powers and may suspend elected officials in Florida who refuse to enforce the law,” a statement from DeSantis’ office read at the time.
DeSantis – when announcing Warren’s replacement – added that it was not up to public officials to pick and choose which laws they enforce.
“State Attorneys have a duty to prosecute crimes as defined in Florida law, not to pick and choose which laws to enforce based on his personal agenda,” DeSantis continued. “It is my duty to hold Florida’s elected officials to the highest standards for the people of Florida. I have the utmost trust that Judge Susan Lopez will lead the office through this transition and faithfully uphold the rule of law.”
Warren then sued in federal court to win reinstatement.
A federal judge denied DeSantis’ motion and now Warren will get his day in court.
“The governor now has to answer it to a court of law where facts matter and where you have to tell the truth,” Warren crowed.
“It’s a victory for the truth. A federal judge has ruled that the governor has to come into court to explain the reasons behind my suspension, to show that it wasn’t political, to show that it wasn’t in violation of my free speech rights, to show that it wasn’t in violation of the voters’ rights to have the state attorney of their choice,” Warren added.
Warren even threatened to put DeSantis on the stand in an obvious bid to create a perjury trap.
“Ultimately, he may be called to testify in court. The court was pretty clear that it wants to hear from the governor in terms of the explanations about the suspension to make sure that the reasons why I was suspended are consistent with Florida law, and with federal law,” Warren added.
However, Warren’s joy looks to be short-lived.
The Florida Constitution rests the veto power solely with the governor and gives DeSantis wide latitude to suspend or remove officials from office.
