Former President Donald Trump claims that his arrest is imminent following the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's investigation into his alleged involvement in hush-money payments to an adult film star.
Though the DA has not confirmed that an arrest will take place, Trump supporters like Rep. Mike Waltz, R-Fla., on Twitter called it a "political hit job."
Sen. Rick Scott R-Fla., tweeted that he 'fully' supports Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's call for an investigation into the DA.
Top House Republicans are calling for documents and testimony from Bragg, who is looking into alleged hush-money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels as Trump was running for president.
The former lawyer of President Trump, Michael Cohen, was sent to prison for his part in setting up a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels, who alleged to have had a sexual encounter with the President, which Trump denied.
Rep. Mike Waltz, a Republican from Florida, says the potential indictment is nothing short of political "interference at its worst."
Another key Florida Republican, Gov. Ron DeSantis, who may challenge Trump for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination,"I don't know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star to secure silence over some type of alleged affair. I just can't speak to that," DeSantis said.
DeSantis reprimanded Bragg for concentrating on a long-standing case and not on the "crimes taking place daily in his jurisdiction," adding that he thinks it is "fundamentally wrong."
While DeSantis has largely resisted going directly after Trump, Florida Gulf Coast University political science professor Sandra Pavelka says if Trump is arrested, dynamics may change.
"If Trump is arrested tomorrow. We're going to see, I think... some of the dynamics change, and obviously, with that court case, that may change a good amount of the dynamics of the presidential campaign moving forward," she told Spectrum News.
DeSantis says he's not and will not be getting involved in the case in any way.
