The Biden Administration’s Justice Department has once again demonstrated its commitment to undermining the integrity of our nation’s legal system.
In a recently revealed court case, Special Counsel Jack Smith admitted to using inaccurate information in order to hide a search warrant for former President Donald J. Trump’s Twitter account @RealDonaldTrump from the public record.
The facts of this case are deeply concerning and demonstrate that the current administration is more interested in using law enforcement resources for political gain than upholding the rule of law.
The Biden Administration must be held accountable for their actions here and throughout their time in office thus far.
X, formerly known as Twitter, was hit with a hefty $350,000 fine due to their delay in producing subpoenaed records related to this secret search warrant.
It appears that Smith sought out Judge Beryl Howell, an Obama appointee, in order to obtain a nondisclosure order prohibiting X from informing then-President Trump about the subpoena.
This was clearly done so as not to tip off Trump or anyone else associated with him about what Smith was up to – undoubtedly something he would have been aware of had it been disclosed at any point during his presidency.
In an effort to justify withholding this information from Trump, Smith argued that doing so would “jeopardize the ongoing investigation” into whatever matter he was looking into at the time – though it remains unclear exactly what that investigation entailed given how secretive everything surrounding this issue is still today.
The DC Circuit Court of Appeals ultimately agreed with Smith’s argument that there were “reasonable grounds” for believing disclosure could cause such jeopardy.
However, they later determined upon further review that Smith had included inaccurate information when suggesting former president Donald J. Trump posed some kind of flight risk if he learned about the warrant and gag order – which ultimately leads one to question whether or not such measures were really necessary after all.
It is worth noting here too that Jack Smith has quite a history when it comes to lying and withholding exculpatory evidence, most recently being accused by Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton for failing to produce all Mar-a-Lago security footage.
