( – On Monday, March 20, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis broke his silence on the hush money case involving former President Donald Trump. This comes after he was criticized by a Trump advisor for not speaking out on the matter.

While speaking at a news conference, DeSantis commented on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is responsible for deciding whether or not Trump will face charges. According to reports, DeSantis said he didn’t want to get mixed up in a “manufactured circus by some Soros-DA.” He added that he wasn’t sure what would happen, but that Bragg is a “Soros-funded prosecutor” and he believes the attorney is just attempting to make a “political spectacle.”

Jason Miller, an advisor to Trump, criticized DeSantis the previous day for not commenting on the New York grand jury investigation into Trump connected to his role in the alleged hush money scheme, The Hill reported.

On March 18, Trump alleged that he was going to be arrested on Tuesday as Bragg appears to be nearing the end of the investigation which will lead to him soon making a decision on whether or not to charge Trump in connection to the alleged hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence over their alleged affair.

Many of Trump’s allies have come to his defense over the and have even accused Bragg of being politically motivated in his investigation. Former Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday disclosed that Trump being arrested would feel “like a politically charged prosecution.” He further alleged that the prosecutor belonged to the “radical left.”

In his tweet, Miller thanked both Pence and GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy for their criticisms of Bragg’s investigation, however, he also pointed out that a large number of high-profile GOP figures had not said anything about the probe. Specifically, he called out not only DeSantis but also Nikki Haley, a former U.N. ambassador and South Carolina governor, and the only other major Republican figure to have officially announced her bid for the White House. DeSantis is also widely expected to run in the 2024 presidential election.
