Trump Sharply Criticizes Special Counsel

Former President Donald Trump sharply criticized special counsel Jack Smith amid the two federal cases currently brought against him. Trump’s latest words come as Smith recently lost a motion in court and filed another motion related to the former president’s statements.

The former president took to social media this week to accuse Smith of helping President Joe Biden, who he called “Corrupt and Incompetent” to “destroy America through Weaponization and ELECTION INTERFERENCE!”

Trump called Smith a “Crooked Prosecutor who shouldn’t even be allowed to be in the position he is in.”

Trump called Smith’s actions “Prosecutorial Misconduct.”

The former president called for Smith, who he described as “Biden’s Flunky,” to “go to HELL.”

Trump shared an article about a recent amicus brief filed to the Supreme Court by former U.S. Attorney General Ed Meese. Messe argued that Smith’s appointment to his current position was unconstitutional.

Meese’s argument was joined by the co-chairman of the Federalist Society and a constitutional law professor.

Smith lost a recent filing against the former president. The special counsel sought for a quick review of whether or not Trump had presidential immunity during his time in office. Following the decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, the decision will be made up the chain of lower courts before likely arriving back there in the future.

Smith is seeking to limit Trump’s ability to make what he calls “political attacks” in his case regarding the aftermath of the 2020 election.

The senior assistant special counsel in the case, Molly Gaston, wrote that Trump’s legal team “has attempted to inject into this case partisan political attacks and irrelevant and prejudicial issues that have no place in a jury trial.”

Gaston wrote that the court overseeing the case could remain objective despite the statements, but that should the jury hear them, its members may not be so impartial.

“The Court should not permit the defendant to turn the courtroom into a forum in which he propagates irrelevant disinformation, and should reject his attempt to inject politics into this proceeding,” the filing reads.
