Donald Trump announcing his 2024 re-election campaign forced the Democrats’ hand.
Now Joe Biden’s administration crossed a major line.
And Joe Biden just made this big move to indict Donald Trump.
Days after Trump announced his intention to seek re-election, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Obama prosecutor Jack Smith to serve as Special Counsel and oversee the witch hunts into Donald Trump over January 6 and the Mar-a-Lago document raid.
“Based on recent developments, including the former President’s announcement that he is a candidate for President in the next election, and the sitting President’s stated intention to be a candidate as well, I have concluded that it is in the public interest to appoint a Special Counsel,” Garland said at a press conference. “Such an appointment underscores the Department’s commitment to both independence and accountability in particularly sensitive matters. It also allows prosecutors and agents to continue their work expeditiously, and to make decisions indisputably guided only by the facts and the law.”
Smith tried to claim he was a nonpartisan, objective prosecutor.
“I intend to conduct the assigned investigations, and any prosecutions that may result from them, independently and in the best traditions of the Department of Justice,” Smith stated. “The pace of the investigations will not pause or flag under my watch. I will exercise independent judgment and will move the investigations forward expeditiously and thoroughly to whatever outcome the facts and the law dictate.”
This is not true at all.
When Smith headed the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Unit, he helped Lois Lerner and the IRS target Tea Party groups for political harassment.
And Smith also tried to jail Virginia’s Republican Governor Bob McDonnell on bribery charges.
Smith’s prosecution was so partisan, biased, and vindictive that the Supreme Court threw out the conviction on a unanimous 8-0 vote.
Merrick Garland did not appoint Smith to keep politics out of the investigation.
Garland tapped Smith to make sure politics stayed front and center in this investigation.
Smith can drag the investigation out through the 2024 election cycle and leak misleading tidbits to friendly reporters who can then publish the latest variation of their “the walls are closing in on Trump” stories that littered the media throughout the Robert Mueller Russian collusion witch hunt.
