Politico Playbook reports:
Law enforcement officials in Palm Beach County, Fla., have actively prepared for the possibility that Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance could indict former President Donald Trump while he’s at Mar-a-Lago, according to two high-ranking county officials involved in planning sessions.
Among the topics discussed in those meetings: how to handle the thorny extradition issues that could arise if an indictment moves forward.
An obscure clause in Florida’s statute on interstate extradition gives Gov. Ron DeSantis the ability to intervene and even investigate whether an indicted “person ought to be surrendered” to law enforcement officials from another state.
Read the full article. Trump has left Mar-A-Lago and is spending the summer at his New Jersey resort. Gov. Phil Murphy has the same extradition powers as DeSantis but would likely not intervene.
NEW: Palm Beach is already thinking through what it would do in case Trump is indicted https://t.co/WsrOmGFruE
