‘Judas Ron’: DeSantis Sparked A Wave Of Republican Infighting After Condemning The DOJ For Indicting Trump

Despite accusing the Department of Justice of being “weaponized” following the news that Donald Trump has been indicted on federal charges for mishandling classified documents, Ron DeSantis is once again being torn apart by his own party.

The Florida governor fired off a statement blasting the DOJ for unfairly targeting the former president and vowed that, if elected president, he would remove “political bias” from the country’s top law enforcement apparatus.

“The weaponization of federal law enforcement represents a mortal threat to a free society,” DeSantis tweeted. “We have for years witnessed an uneven application of the law depending upon political affiliation. Why so zealous in pursuing Trump yet so passive about Hillary or Hunter? The DeSantis administration will bring accountability to the DOJ, excise political bias and end weaponization once and for all.”

If the statement to DeSantis was meant to be an olive branch to Trump voters, it didn’t work. The governor’s replies begin filling up with GOP infighting as MAGA voters accused DeSantis of capitalizing on the indictment to overtake Trump in the Republican primaries.

This is the second time this week that DeSantis has been called out by his own party. His campaign used AI images of Trump hugging Dr. Fauci in a recent ad, and it did not go over well with a Republican base that’s still intensely loyal to the former president.

“Smearing Donald Trump with fake AI images is completely unacceptable,” Senator J.D. Vance tweeted. “I’m not sharing them, but we’re in a new era. Be even more skeptical of what you see on the internet.”
