The fate of Joe Biden’s re-election campaign rests in the hands of handpicked prosecutor Jack Smith.
That’s because polls continually show that Joe Biden’s only chance at victory depends on Smith winning a criminal conviction in one of the kangaroo courts he set up for Donald Trump.
But Donald Trump got the last laugh over Jack Smith by notching this one big win.
A three-judge panel on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously rejected Donald Trump’s argument that Presidential immunity protected him from Jack Smith’s criminal prosecution for contesting the results of the 2020 election.
The judges wrote that President Trump “has become citizen Trump, with all of the defenses of any other criminal defendant. But any executive immunity that may have protected him while he served as President no longer protects him against this prosecution.”
However, just because the three-judge panel – two of whom are radical leftists – handed Smith a win on the merits of the case, the overall victory was Trump’s.
That’s because George Washington Law Professor Jonathan Turley explained to Fox News that the real win was delaying the case and forcing Obama Judge Tanya Chutkan to cancel the March 4 trial start date.
“The most practical impact of this appeal was indeed the delay that it caused. It was very important for the Trump team to try to push this trial back. They succeeded in doing that, as you mentioned,” Turley stated.
Turley said Trump can still appeal to the Supreme Court – which his team promised to do – which will likely delay the case even further.
“Now, the next stage here is that they can ask for review of the entire court — what’s called an en-banc petition. That has to be reviewed and voted on even if they reject it. And that will take some time. And then they will no doubt appeal to the Supreme Court, which is — now has a considerable stack on the desks of these Justices, including election-related cases,” Turley added.
The timing of this case is critical and also shows how Smith is corrupting the legal process for political ends.
A brand-new NBC News poll shows Trump leading Biden by five points.
But in the event of a criminal conviction, the poll swings seven points in Biden’s favor where he now leads Trump by two points.
Jack Smith wants a trial before the election because he knows convicting Trump is the only way Joe Biden stands a chance of winning a second term.
