The weaponization of the DOJ is shockingly accelerating.
Joe Biden has shown zero restraint in going after his political opponents.
And Merrick Garland unleashed one attack dog with a troubling past on Donald Trump.
The Democrats cannot let go of their Orange Man Bad narrative and they cannot find any crimes he’s actually committed, so their plan is to hamstring him in endless investigations that fuel the 24-hour news cycle and bolster the DNC’s agenda.
Enter Special Counsel Jack Smith, who was tapped by Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate any wrongdoing by Donald Trump regarding the unprecedented FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago.
Jim Jordan exposes Trump Special Counsel Jack Smith’s Obama administration record
But Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and other Republicans have pointed out that Smith is deeply partisan going back to his days in the Obama administration.
Breitbart reported that “House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH) said…that Special Counsel Jack Smith tried to find ways to target conservative organizations during the Obama era-IRS scandal. Jordan said on Fox Business…that he and Rep. Darrell Issa’s (R-CA) 2014 report looking into the IRS’s targeting of conservative tax-exempt organizations has potentially troubling context for the Special Counsel investigation into former President Donald Trump…[i]n 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.”
Smith was knee-deep in the Lois Lerner scandal that wrapped up when server data mysteriously disappeared.
Smith’s email read:
“Check out [the] article on front page of ny times [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.”
Jordan, who is champing at the bit to investigate Democrat malfeasance now that the Republicans are back in the majority, said during a Fox interview, “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.”
The Democrats aren’t even pretending that the investigation into Trump is not politically motivated.
They are out to get him, and if they can’t find anything, they will keep the mind-numbing investigations going.
