House Republicans have opened an investigation to find out why a member of Jack Smith’s prosecutors met in the offices of the White House counsel.
Maybe I am just cynical, but the only reason that would be necessary with an alleged Special Counsel is to coordinate election interference against Trump.
That coordination is illegal, but do not expect an early raid by 30 heavily armed FBI agents. Smith belongs to the right party.
The GOP-controlled House is already investigating Fani Willis, which is ironic since she is charging Trump with conspiracy. Newt Gingrich said that he was told that Willis brought the charges against Trump after receiving a call from the White House. Although I would tend to believe that, I have no knowledge of that being true.
Jay Bratt, a top assistant to Jack Smith met with Caroline Saba, deputy chief of staff for Biden’s White House Counsel’s office on March 31, 2023.
He has offered no reason for the meeting and likely never will. Chris Wray will say his FBI is investigating the matter so that no one can find out what the meeting entailed. The meeting has been confirmed by the White House visitor’s log.
Obama-appointed judge Beryl Howell ordered Trump’s lawyer to testify before the grand jury. Sure. Why not? Who needs lawyer/client privilege? Besides, Trump belongs to the wrong party, so does he even have rights?
House Judiciary Republicans on Tuesday launched an investigation into Jack Smith’s office meeting with Biden White House officials.
Joe Biden’s White House Counsel’s office quietly met with Special Counsel Jack Smith’s aides just weeks before Trump was indicted in the classified documents case.
According to visitor logs reviewed by the New York Post, Jay Bratt, a prosecutor on Jack Smith’s massive team, met with Caroline Saba, deputy chief of staff for Biden’s White House Counsel’s office on March 31, 2023.
The special counsel’s prosecutor met with Biden’s staffers just days after Obama-appointed judge Beryl Howell ordered Trump’s lawyer to testify before the grand jury.
Judge Howell flipped Trump’s own lawyer Eric Corcoran into a witness when she obliterated Trump’s attorney-client privilege in a ruling.
Jack Smith indicted President Trump weeks later on 37 charges related to classified documents stored at Mar-a-Lago.
This is more evidence that Joe Biden is coordinating with prosecutors to lock up his main political rival Donald Trump – in the middle of an election!
“The Committee on the Judiciary is continuing its oversight of the Biden Justice Department’s commitment to impartial justice and its handling of a special counsel investigation against President Biden’s chief opponent in the upcoming presidential election. According to recent reporting, Jay Bratt—a Department of Justice employee and top aide to Special Counsel Jack Smith—met with White House officials multiple times, just weeks before Mr. Smith indicted former President Donald Trump. This new information raises serious concerns regarding the potential for a coordinated effort between the Department and the White House to investigate and prosecute President Biden’s political opponents,” they wrote.
“In September 2021, Mr. Bratt reportedly met with an advisor to the White House Chief of Staff. Two months later, in November 2021, Mr. Bratt again went to the White House to meet with Administration officials. During this same period, President Trump’s lawyers were negotiating with the National Archives about presidential records from his tenure in office. According to reporting, Mr. Bratt’s 2021 White House meetings related to ‘national security.’ Subsequently, on March 31, 2023, just nine weeks prior to Mr. Smith’s indictment of President Trump, Mr. Bratt met with the White House Counsel’s Office Deputy Chief of Staff Caroline Saba and FBI Special Agent Danielle Ray for a ‘case-related interview.’” the Republicans said.
