Lawyer Claims Justice Department Investigator Endangering American Justice System
According to a lawyer representing former President Donald Trump, the Justice Department special investigator, Jack Smith, is endangering the American justice system by bringing another indictment against Trump. The lawyer made this statement during a conversation with Ben Shapiro, the Editor Emeritus of the Daily Wire.
Concerns Over Indictment and Potential Consequences
In an interview with Trump's attorney Jesse Binnall on "The Ben Shapiro Show," they discussed the recent indictment against Trump for allegedly attempting to overturn the 2020 election results. Binnall and Shapiro expressed concern over the seriousness of the charges and the potential consequences. They highlighted the possibility of Trump being convicted by a D.C. jury and the case eventually reaching the Supreme Court.
Possible Delegitimization of the Supreme Court
The co-founder of The Daily Wire, a conservative news outlet, expressed concern that if the Supreme Court ruled in favor of former President Trump, it would delegitimize the court in the eyes of the Left. He argued that this would put the credibility of the American justice system at risk, regardless of which side wins. The co-founder also mentioned Chief Justice John Roberts, suggesting that he is under pressure to maintain the credibility of the judiciary.
Sad State of the Country and Rule of Law
According to Binnall, the situation involving Smith and the Supreme Court is putting the country and the rule of law in a very sad state. Binnall believes that this time in history may be remembered as a relatively united period compared to the future.
Legal Opinions on Charges Against Trump
The article discusses the charges brought against former President Donald Trump and the legal opinions surrounding them. Both Shapiro and Binnall argue that the charges are legally questionable. Trump is facing charges including conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of an attempt to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights.
Implications for Future Legal Disputes
According to Shapiro, the outcome of a particular case could have significant implications for future legal disputes involving constitutional interpretation and issues such as gerrymandering. Shapiro suggests that the strategy being employed by Jack Smith is based on the belief that prosecutors, particularly those at the Department of Justice, favor the Washington, D.C., establishment. This leads to the argument that prosecutorial discretion is only used against Donald Trump and his supporters, and that prosecutors are unlikely to bring a case against the other side.
