PRESIDENT TRUMP: The Truth About Biden Henchman Jack Smith and the Democrats’ Witch-Hunt

The Truth About Biden Henchman Jack Smith and the Democrats’ Witch-Hunt

As shared by President Trump on Truth Social

• The Jack Smith-lead investigation is an unprecedented act of election interference directed by the corrupt Biden Administration against its chief political rival. This is un-American and wrong.

• Radical, partisan Democrats have infected the Department of Justice and are attempting to silence President Trump, rob him of his First Amendment right to free speech and damage his dominating campaign for re-election to the Presidency.

• President Trump wholly acted under a constitutional obligation to secure the integrity of the 2020 presidential election. Throughout the country, secretaries of state were taking unprecedented actions, often without the advice and consent of state legislatures to radically change election rules and procedures ahead of the 2020 election. President Trump sought to combat illegality and ensure a just election.

• President Trump acted throughout the 2020 election and its aftermath on the direct advice of legal counsel. The President sought to investigate any and all reports of voting and election irregularities in unprecedented and historically unique times. At no point did the President act without consultation with his attorneys.

• This indictment is the latest, sad chapter in an ongoing witch-hunt directed by Joe Biden and carried out by his loyal Democrats in vastly corrupt law enforcement branches of our federal government. President Trump is running for President to clean up the corrupt filth within these offices and return them to once again serving the interests of the American People, not political ends of the Democrat Party.

JACK SMITH IS BIDEN’S POLITICAL PAWN, WITH A CHECKERED HISTORY

Jack Smith Has Conducted A Dirty, Politically-Motivated Investigation Of President Trump To Prevent Him From Winning Back The Presidency.

Smith’s Team Routinely Engages In Dirty Tactics Including Grave Prosecutorial Misconduct, Threatening The Judgeship Application Of Attorney Stanley Woodward. “The lawyer for Donald Trump’s valet, under scrutiny in the Mar-a-Lago documents investigation, has submitted court papers describing a meeting at which a top federal prosecutor brought up his application to be a judge when they tried to gain the valet’s cooperation last year, according to three people familiar with the matter.” (The Guardian, 6/8/23)

In An Attempt To Coerce A Witness, DOJ Attorney Jay Bratt Threatened Woodward’s Judgeship Application. “When Woodward arrived at the conference room, he was seated across from several prosecutors working on the investigation, including the chief of the counterintelligence section, Jay Bratt, who explained that they wanted Nauta to cooperate with the government against Trump, the letter said…Bratt then turned to Woodward and remarked that he did not think that Woodward was a ‘Trump guy’ and that ‘he would do the right thing’, before noting that he knew Woodward had submitted an application to be a judge at the superior court in Washington DC that was currently pending, the letter said.” (The Guardian, 6/8/23)

Experts Suggest The Conduct Of Smith’s Team Could Be Criminal And Result In The Entire Case Being Tossed. “Depending on what exactly was said, Bratt could even face criminal prosecution himself. In cases of flagrant prosecutorial misconduct, courts have the discretion to dismiss indictments altogether. If Woodward’s claims are proven, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon would be well within her rights to consider a dismissal here. The conduct claimed is perhaps unprecedented and certainly flagrant, amounting to nothing less than an effort by a high-ranking DOJ official to deprive a defendant of his Sixth Amendment right to counsel through inappropriate and potentially unlawful acts.” (The Federalist, 7/5/23)

Smith’s Team Was Admonished By A Federal Judge For Questioning A Witness And Causing A Delay In An Unrelated Case. “U.S. District Court Judge Trevor McFadden sent a U.S. marshal to summon Smith’s prosecutors from the grand jury room — where they were grilling a Trump-connected witness — to his courtroom Thursday afternoon. That led to a bizarre scene in which Thomas Windom, a leading prosecutor on Smith’s team investigating Trump’s effort to subvert the 2020 election, marched down the courthouse hallway and filed into McFadden’s courtroom during the ongoing Jan. 6 proceeding, a lengthy bench trial verdict for Federico Klein and Steven Cappuccio, who stand accused of violence toward Capitol Police.” (Politico, 7/20/23)

Smith Engaged In Prosecutorial Misconduct In His Handling Of His Case Against Republican Congressman Rick Renzi. “It seems multiple individuals involved in prosecuting Renzi, including Smith himself, were sanctioned. Based on a 2019 complaint and request for investigation filed on Renzi’s behalf by respected legal firm Mayer Brown, evidence was found of prosecutorial misconduct including improper media leaks, illegal wiretaps, concealment of exculpatory evidence and impeachment evidence, destruction of evidence, and introduction of false testimony before and during Renzi’s trial. This misconduct involved both the FBI and DOJ, with prosecutors under the supervision of none other than Jack Smith.” (PJ Media, 6/14/23)

Smith’s Shady Conduct Formed The Basis For President Trump’s Pardon Of Congressman Renzi. “’The prosecutorial misconduct of Jack Smith and his lead prosecutor in my case, David Harbach, is what led to the presidential pardon’ Trump gave him, the former congressman told me. Now that dangerous duo has teamed up again, with Donald Trump as their new target. ‘In the Miami courtroom, David Harbach was sitting behind Jack Smith. So both men who prosecuted me, who engaged in misconduct, reunited themselves and have gone after the president.’ Renzi said Smith and Harbach were sanctioned “three times in my case,’ with one sanction based on illegal wiretaps. For Renzi’s case, Smith and Harbach tried to ‘pierce the attorney-client privilege.’ That is the exact language the Los Angeles Times used to describe what the federal prosecutors under Smith were attempting to do with Trump: ‘pierce attorney-client privilege.’ (PJ Media, 6/14/23)

Smith led a team of 30 prosecutors in conducting public corruption cases throughout the United States, including a mixed track record of going after high-profile politicians. He also inserted the DOJ into what would become the Lois Lerner IRS scandal targeting conservative nonprofit groups during the Obama years, which Trump has criticized him for since he became special counsel.” (Washington Examiner, 6/5/23)

Smith Was Appointed By Garland To Lead The Investigation Against President Trump. “Chevigny married Smith, who was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland last week to complete the Justice Department’s two investigations into former President Donald Trump and weigh potential criminal charges, in 2011. Garland appointed the veteran prosecutor in an effort to insulate the Justice Department from accusations of it not being impartial in its investigations now that the 76-year-old Trump has announced his 2024 candidacy. Trump is under investigation for his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 elections and for his handling of classified presidential documents after his presidency.” (New York Post, 11/23/22)

After Leaving The DOJ In 2015, Smith Served As The First Assistant United States Attorney And Acting United States Attorney For The Middle District Of Tennessee. “After leaving the DOJ in 2015, Smith headed to Tennessee, where he served as the First Assistant United States Attorney and Acting United States Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee.” (NPR, 11/18/22)

Smith Was Instrumental In The DOJ’s Lois Lerner IRS Scandal Targeting Conservative Nonprofit Groups

Lois Lerner Led An IRS Effort Targeting Tea Party Groups And Similar Conservative Nonprofit Organizations And “Smith’s Push For DOJ Officials To Contact Lerner And The IRS In Order To Get The DOJ Involved Seemed To Be The Impetus Behind The IRS Sending The FBI Reams Of Nonprofit Tax Records.” “Lerner, director of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations Unit, led an IRS effort targeting Tea Party groups and similar conservative nonprofit organizations. Smith’s push for DOJ officials to contact Lerner and the IRS in order to get the DOJ involved seemed to be the impetus behind the IRS sending the FBI reams of nonprofit tax records. An IRS watchdog and the DOJ later admitted the IRS committed wrongdoing, although not of the criminal variety. Lerner would apologize. Republicans unsuccessfully sought a special counsel to investigate the IRS scandal at the time, with Smith’s actions cited as one reason.” (Washington Examiner, 11/25/22)

Jim Jordan: “Jack Smith Was Looking For Ways To Prosecute The Innocent Americans That Lois Lerner Targeted During The IRS Scandal.” “Jack Smith was looking for ways to prosecute the innocent Americans that Lois Lerner targeted during the IRS scandal,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), expected to lead the House Judiciary Committee next year, told the Washington Examiner. Jordan and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), who led House Oversight, sought Smith’s testimony in May 2014, saying, “It is apparent that the Department’s leadership, including Public Integrity Section Chief Jack Smith, was closely involved in engaging with the IRS.” Smith testified that month that he spoke with the FBI about these nonprofit groups. “We had a dialogue with the FBI. Never opened any investigations, Public Integrity [Unit] did not. But we did have a dialogue with them over time following this [Oct. 8, 2010, meeting with Lerner].” (Washington Examiner, 11/25/22)

• Jim Jordan: “The Fact That Richard Pilger And Jack Smith Had Interaction With Lois Lerner In 2010 And 2013, That You Had A Data Base Of 1.1 Million Pages Of Taxpayer Information, Donor (C)(4) Information, You Had It For Four Years, And Some Of That Information Was Confidential — All That Fact, All That Cries Out For A Special Prosecutor.”(Washington Examiner, 11/25/22)

Lerner Admitted In 2013 That “We Made Some Mistakes. Some People Didn’t Use Good Judgment. … For That We’re Apologetic.” “Lerner admitted in May 2013 the IRS had scrutinized nonprofit groups that used terms such as “Tea Party” or “patriots” in their applications but claimed it wasn’t a political decision, saying, “We made some mistakes. Some people didn’t use good judgment. … For that we’re apologetic.” (Washington Examiner, 11/25/22)

The Treasury Department’s Watchdog Concluded In 2013 That “The IRS Used Inappropriate Criteria That Identified For Review Tea Party And Other Organizations.” “The Treasury Department’s watchdog concluded in 2013 that “the IRS used inappropriate criteria that identified for review Tea Party and other organizations.” (Washington Examiner, 11/25/22)

DOJ In 2015: “Our Investigation Uncovered Substantial Evidence Of Mismanagement, Poor Judgment, And Institutional Inertia.” “The DOJ said in 2015: “Our investigation uncovered substantial evidence of mismanagement, poor judgment, and institutional inertia.” (Washington Examiner, 11/25/22)

In June 2023, Jim Jordan Launched A Probe To Conduct Oversight Over Jack Smith’s Probe Into Former President Donald Trump For The Handling Of Papers At Mar-A-Lago. “House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) launched a probe to conduct oversight over Special Counsel Jack Smith’s probe into former President Donald Trump for the handling of papers at Mar-a-Lago. In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Jordan requested information about the probe to ensure the investigation is not politicized by the FBI, which suffers from a lack of public trust after improperly involving itself in the 2016 Russia hoax.” (Breitbart, 6/2/23)

In 2014, Jim Jordan And Darrell Issa Conducted A Report On: “The Internal Revenue Service’s Targeting Of Conservative Tax-Exempt Applicants: Report Of Findings For The 113th Congress.” (U.S. House Of Representatives, 12/23/14)

• Jordan Said, “Guess Who Was The Lead Person At The Justice Department Looking For Ways To Target And Prosecute The Very People Looking Into Who Lois Lerner Went After? Jack Smith, The Guy Merrick Garland Just Named As Special Counsel To Go After President Trump.” “He asked rhetorically, “Guess who was the lead person at the Justice Department looking for ways to target and prosecute the very people looking into who Lois Lerner went after? Jack Smith, the guy Merrick Garland just named as special counsel to go after President Trump.” (Breitbart, 11/21/22)

In 2010, Smith Emailed His Senior Leadership Regarding A NYT Article Regarding Conservative Organizations. “Indeed, in September 2010 — Smith, the then-chief of the Justice Department’s public integrity section, criminal division — emailed his senior leadership regarding a New York Times article regarding conservative organizations: Check out [the] article on front page of NYTimes [sic] regarding misuse of non-profits for indirectly funding campaigns. This seems egregious to me – could we ever charge a [18 U.S.C. §] 371 conspiracy to violate laws of the USA for misuse of such non profits to get around existing campaign finance laws + limits? I know 501s are legal but if they are knowingly using them beyond what they are allowed to use them for (and we could prove that factually)? IRS Commissioner sarah ingram [sic] oversees these groups. Let’s discuss tomorrow but maybe we should try to set up a meeting this week. [Emphasis added].” (Breitbart, 11/21/22)

Smith Has A History Of Targeting Republicans

Smith Convicted Former Republican Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, Which Was Later Unanimously Overturned By The Supreme Court. “Smith’s DOJ biography in 2015 touted that while chief of the Public Integrity Section, Smith helped with the prosecution against McDonnell, who was indicted and convicted on federal corruption charges related to bribery in 2014. The case was being prosecuted by Smith’s deputy in the Public Integrity Section. McDonnell was investigated while governor, indicted shortly after leaving office in January 2014, convicted in September 2014, and sentenced to two years in prison in 2015. The Supreme Court unanimously overturned McDonnell’s conviction in the summer of 2016.” (Washington Examiner, 6/5/23)

In 2016, The Supreme Court Overturned Bob McDonnell’s Convictions Unanimously 8-0, Ruling That Federal Prosecutors Relied On A “Boundless” Definition Of The Kinds Of Acts That Could Lead Politicians To Face Criminal Charges. “A unanimous Supreme Court has overturned the corruption convictions of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, ruling that federal prosecutors relied on a “boundless” definition of the kinds of acts that could lead politicians to face criminal charges. The decision from the eight-justice court could make it tougher for prosecutors to prove corruption cases against politicians in cases where there is no proof of an explicit agreement linking a campaign donation or gift to a contract, grant or vote.” (Politico, 6/27/16)

• Chief Justice Roberts Wrote, “There Is No Doubt That This Case Is Distasteful; It May Be Worse Than That. But Our Concern Is Not With Tawdry Tales Of Ferraris, Rolexes, And Ball Gowns. It Is Instead With The Broader Legal Implications Of The Government’s Boundless Interpretation Of The Federal Bribery Statute.” Adding, “A More Limited Interpretation Of The Term ‘Official Act’ Leaves Ample Room For Prosecuting Corruption, While Comporting With The Text Of The Statute And The Precedent Of This Court.” “The court’s opinion, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, rejected the government’s position that simply agreeing to meet with someone on account of such largesse could be enough to constitute an official act that could trigger a corruption conviction. “There is no doubt that this case is distasteful; it may be worse than that. But our concern is not with tawdry tales of Ferraris, Rolexes, and ball gowns. It is instead with the broader legal implications of the Government’s boundless interpretation of the federal bribery statute,” Roberts wrote. “A more limited interpretation of the term ‘official act’ leaves ample room for prosecuting corruption, while comporting with the text of the statute and the precedent of this Court.” (Politico, 6/27/16)

• Roberts Added, “The Government’s Position Could Cast A Pall Of Potential Prosecution Over These Relationships If The Union Had Given A Campaign Contribution In The Past Or The Homeowners Invited The Official To Join Them On Their Annual Outing To The Ballgame. Officials Might Wonder Whether They Could Respond To Even The Most Commonplace Requests For Assistance, And Citizens With Legitimate Concerns Might Shrink From Participating In Democratic Discourse.” “Conscientious public officials arrange meetings for constituents, contact other officials on their behalf, and include them in events all the time. The basic compact underlying representative government assumes that public officials will hear from their constituents and act appropriately on their concerns—whether it is the union official worried about a plant closing or the homeowners who wonder why it took five days to restore power to their neighborhood after a storm,” Roberts wrote. “The Government’s position could cast a pall of potential prosecution over these relationships if the union had given a campaign contribution in the past or the homeowners invited the official to join them on their annual outing to the ballgame. Officials might wonder whether they could respond to even the most commonplace requests for assistance, and citizens with legitimate concerns might shrink from participating in democratic discourse,” the chief justice added. (Politico, 6/27/16)

In November 2022, Bob McDonnell Said Regarding Jack Smith, “I Think There’s A Real Judgement Problem.” (Newsmax, 11/22/22)

Smith’s Lone Pursuit Of A Case Against A Democrat, Sen. John Edwards, Resulted In A Hung Jury And Mistrial. “The scheme was related to more than $900,000 going from backers of Edwards to Rielle Hunter, a filmmaker hired for his 2008 campaign and with whom he was having an extramarital affair. The money was allegedly used to help cover up the affair Edwards was having in 2008 as his wife, Elizabeth, was dying of cancer. The jury deadlocked in May 2012 after a five-week trial and more than a week of deliberations. Some officials inside the Justice Department reportedly had initial misgivings about the case before getting on board with the prosecution. After the mistrial loss, Smith said at the time that “our job is to look at the facts and then look at the law and apply the facts to the law.” The Justice Department soon announced it wouldn’t attempt to retry Edwards. Jurors said on TV after the trial that a majority didn’t think the DOJ had proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt and that the evidence simply wasn’t there, while a minority wanted to convict Edwards. (Washington Examiner, 6/5/23)

Jack Smith’s Wife, Katy Chevigny, Is A Biden Donor. She Produced A Documentary About Michelle Obama, And She Worked On An Anti-Citizens United Film Titled, “Dark Money.”

Chevigny Has Donated $2,000 To Joe Biden. (FEC, Accessed 6/8/23)

Chevigny Produced A Documentary About Michelle Obama In 2020, Which Was Featured On Netflix. “The wife of newly appointed special counsel Jack Smith is a filmmaker who produced a movie about former first lady Michelle Obama and donated to President Biden’s 2020 campaign. Katy Chevigny is credited as a producer on “Becoming,” a 2020 documentary about Obama, and Federal Election Commission records show that she donated $2,000 in support of Biden’s presidential run that same year. “Becoming” centered on the former first lady’s 2019 book tour promoting her memoir of the same title. Big Mouth Productions, where Chevigny is employed as a director and producer, is listed as one of the production companies that worked on the film. (New York Post, 11/23/22)

Chevigny Worked On An Anti-Citizens United Film Titled “Dark Money” In 2018. “Chevigny and Big Mouth Productions also worked on the 2018 documentary titled “Dark Money.” The film is described as a “political thriller” that “takes viewers to Montana – a front line in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide – to follow an intrepid local journalist working to expose the real-life impact of the US Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision.” (New York Post, 11/23/22)

Chevigny Also Donated To The Leftist Activist Group MoveOn.org. “Big Mouth Productions is also listed as Chevigny’s employer on FEC filings that show her donations to Biden’s campaign. Records show she donated $1,000 to Biden for President and another $1,000 to the Biden Victory Fund in September of 2020. Chevigny also made seven other $10 donations to ActBlue, a Democratic fundraising platform, and to MoveOn.org’s political action committee in 2010.” (New York Post, 11/23/22)

Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco Is A Longtime Obama Loyalist And An Architect Of The Russia Collusion Hoax. She Is Also Handling Various January 6 Related Cases

Deputy AG Lisa Monaco Is A Biden Appointee Handling Various January 6 Related Cases. “The stunt was intended to convince the public that Garland, a political appointee of Joe Biden, and his top aides—including Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco and another Biden appointee, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Matthew Graves—would take a hands-off approach into the criminal probe of Trump and Republican officials who aided post-election efforts to salvage his presidency. (Monaco and Graves, the prosecutor currently handling more than 900 January 6 cases, stood next to Garland at the announcement.)” (American Greatness, 12/17/22)

Monaco Is A Longtime Obama Loyalist And An Architect Of The Russia Collusion Hoax. “Further, does anyone for a moment believe that Monaco, a longtime Obama loyalist and an architect of the Russia collusion hoax, will really step away from investigating the man she’s tried to destroy for the better part of six years? Or will Graves, a Biden campaign advisor married to the head of a radical left-wing nonprofit in D.C. who considers white women “racist” for voting for Trump? At least two other prosecutors working for Graves in D.C. will simply walk a few blocks over to the special counsel’s office.” (American Greatness, 12/17/22)
