Former Federal Prosecutor Sounds Off On Jack Smith
(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – The left’s efforts to “get Trump” at all costs are far more corrupt and criminal than anything the former president has done. The indictments are bogus and anyone who has a clue recognizes that it all amounts to blatant political persecution.
Now the former chief of the DOJ’s organized crime unit is accusing the Justice Department of committing “extortion” along with other “shenanigans” in regards to the DOJ’s effort to influence Trump’s co-defendant’s attorney.
During a Sunday appearance on Fox News, James Trusty discussed Trump’s legal issues with “Life, Liberty & Levin” host Mark Levin who prompted him into revealing “anything else weird” he had seen aside from denying Trump privileges.
First, Trusty noted that Assistant United States Attorney Lesley Wolf violated the law when she informed Hunter Biden’s lawyers where investigators planned to search, saying, “in my book, that’s basically obstruction of justice.”
He used that point to emphasize the parallels that “speak volumes” on Attorney General Merrick Garland’s integrity. Based on court filings, Trusty explained how federal prosecutor Jay Bratt, once in charge of the counterintelligence and export-control section for the Justice Department’s National Security Division, had weaponized an application filed by the attorney of Walt Nauta in the Trump classified documents case.
“You had the high-level DOJ official — according to a statement submitted as an officer-to-the-court, to a federal judge — told Stanley Woodward, a defense attorney representing Walt Nauta that it would be a shame, essentially, if he endangered his pending judgeship by not flipping Nauta against President Trump,” the former prosecutor explained. “Again, it’s extortion.”
“So the people that we are entrusting in our criminal justice system to fairly and impartially and transparently pursue justice are actually obstructionists because they’re so hellbent on going after one target: President Trump,” Trusty asserted.
As previously reported, in addition to tipping off investigators, Wolf had also threatened IRS whistleblowers against interviewing President Joe Biden’s grandchildren, warning they’d be in “hot water” if they tried.
Trusty went on to comment, “There’s evidence from both of those cases that suggests this Department of Justice, if those accusations are right, has no compunction about breaking the rules, about destroying the rule of law because of their political interest in being the ones that got President Trump.”
These details were merely a small part of the “shenanigans” to the indictments brought against Trump by partisan special counsel Jack Smith. As Levin put it, “He pierces attorney-client privilege by hook-or-by-crook, gets it in front of the grand jury. It’s used in front of the grand jury. And now, in this case, he’s moved it to another grand jury. And so the grand jury in Florida and the judge in Florida don’t know anything about it unless Trump’s lawyers are good enough to raise it with them.”
On Monday, Judge Aileen Cannon in presiding over the documents case challenged Smith on the out-of-state grand jury matter and wrote in a filing, “The Special Counsel states in conclusory terms that the supplement should be sealed from public view ‘to comport with grand jury secrecy,’ but the motion for leave and the supplement plainly fail to satisfy the burden of establishing a sufficient legal or factual basis to warrant sealing the motion and supplement.”
Furthermore, after striking two sealed entries from the docket, she permitted Smith until Aug. 22 to address his use of a Washington, D.C. grand jury for a Florida indictment, “The response shall address the legal propriety of using an out-of-district grand jury proceeding to continue to investigate and/or to seek post-indictment hearings on matters pertinent to the instant indicted matter in this district.”
Speaking to the gravity of attempting to flip Nauta, George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley had previously stated in a column, “If he were to flip…Trump would face a potentially insurmountable case.”
Trump is certainly up against an alarming amount of corruption.
