California Governor Gavin Newsom is clearly positioning himself as the “top” candidate for the Democrat Party in 2024 in the increasingly likely event that current President Joe Biden does not run.
Either that, or he is just seething mad over the impressive success of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, whose natural competence all the more clearly reveals the incoherence of the Newsom regime.
After all, DeSantis recently won the gubernatorial race by one of the largest margins ever … whereas Newsom faced one of the few gubernatorial recall elections that has occurred in California’s history, given his rather draconian handling of the pandemic.
On top of that, multiple Californians are fleeing for the far saner locale of Florida, alongside hordes of New Yorkers.
Little wonder then, that Newsom has urged the federal government to go after DeSantis for his migrant transportation methods, openly asking for the DOJ “to open federal criminal and civil investigations into these incidents.”
While acknowledging that varied transportation schemes are acceptable under the law, Newsom insisted, “this scheme is different.”
“It is unconscionable to use people as political props by persuading them to travel to another state based on false or deceptive representations. We urge USDOJ to investigate potential violations of federal law by those involved in this scheme,” Newsom declared indignantly.
Translation: DOJ, please eliminate DeSantis as a potential presidential contender.
California Attorney General Rob Bonta also laid on the melodrama, declaring that DeSantis was engaging in “state-sanctioned kidnapping.”
Please. In that case, California engages in “state-sanctioned” human trafficking, especially as Democrat lawmakers just handed child traffickers another win in a California court.
As detailed by Fox News Digital, however, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody is not impressed by Gruesome Newsom’s schemes, which was made very apparent in a searing letter directly to the DOJ.
“While I would urge you not to bail out California or engage in another political investigation or litigation, if you make the unconscionable and unfounded determination to do so, Florida stands ready to fight against DOJ’s overreach … They hope that DOJ can be improperly utilized, yet again, against a Republican presidential candidate during an election. This seems to seek from DOJ exactly what you pledged DOJ would not do,” Moody intoned ominously.
Well, with respect, Biden also pledged “unity,” and look where that got everyone.
“Our voluntary immigration relocation program is lawful, and California’s request fails to identify any violation of federal law … As an Attorney General who leads hundreds of highly qualified lawyers and has led dozens of legal challenges against this administration, it is jarring that California is not competent enough to articulate even a minimal legal basis for its request,” Moody added pointedly, before dismissing Newsom’s deranged efforts as a “ridiculous political stunt.”
Love it. Newsom can’t even come up with a “minimum” legal basis. Just imagine him as president.
DeSantis himself is also not amused, as evidenced by remarks last month.
“They attacked the previous administration’s efforts to try to have border security. And so that’s the policies they’re staking out. And then what? When they have to deal with some of the fruits of that, they all of a sudden become very, very upset about that?” the Florida governor remarked incredulously.
Way to defend Trump while simultaneously blasting Newsom.
