Biden Allegedly Provides Unlimited Funds To Smith For Trump Prosecution

 June 12, 2024

Controversy erupts as Donald Trump's legal team alleges President Biden gave Special Counsel Jack Smith undue power and funds for pursuing Trump.

Amid escalating political tensions, Donald Trump’s lawyers have launched a vocal objection against Special Counsel Jack Smith, who is investigating the former president.

Newsweek reported that Trump's attorneys argue that Smith's investigation is unfairly supported by President Joe Biden, claiming that Biden has effectively given Smith a "blank check" to target Trump.

This claim arises amidst two separate legal battles involving Trump: one pertains to the alleged mishandling of classified documents, and the second involves accusations of efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results, both of which Trump has pleaded not guilty.

Trump's Counsel Challenges Legality of Smith's Role

The allegations were formally presented to Judge Aileen Cannon, who is overseeing the case regarding the classified documents allegedly retained at Trump's Florida property, Mar-a-Lago. Trump’s attorneys assert that the funding allocated to Smith by the Department of Justice defies the Appropriations Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

During a press conference at Mar-a-Lago on February 08, 2024, Trump echoed his legal team’s concerns, further accusing the investigation of being politically motivated to thwart his future political plans. Lawyers Todd Blanche and Chris Kise formalized these objections in a legal filing this past Tuesday.

Trump's legal stance is supported by their critique that Smith's comprehensive resources stand in stark contrast to the general fiscal constraints typically experienced by other Department of Justice operations.

Currently, Donald Trump faces 40 federal charges related to his alleged retention of classified documents post-presidency. Brought by Smith, these charges are part of a broader series of legal challenges Trump faces, including allegations of election interference.

The latter set of charges has temporarily stalled, pending a Supreme Court review concerning Trump’s claim of presidential immunity. This judicial halt underscores the complexity and unprecedented nature of the legal confrontations Trump endures.

In light of a recent Supreme Court decision on May 16, 2024, regarding the funding of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Trump’s legal team has sought to parallel the implications of this decision with the funding of Smith’s activities.

According to attorneys Todd Blanche and Chris Kise, the expansiveness of Smith’s investigation is allegedly a tactic deployed by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to injure Trump's current political endeavors under the guise of Biden's campaign strategies.

They expressed during their filing, "U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland 'unleashed Smith as a Biden campaign surrogate to try to harm President Trump's campaign by any means necessary'". Furthermore, they highlighted the improbable nature of the DOJ's funds supporting such allegedly targeted, politically-driven acts by Smith.

Reflecting on the challenges faced by past DOJ undertakings due to financial constraints, an unnamed source indicated that such expansive investigations as those pursued by Smith would typically be unfeasible.

Community Awaits Court Decisions

Judge Aileen Cannon is scheduled to hold a hearing on Trump's motion to dismiss the indictment on June 21, 2024.

Additionally, submissions from both legal parties had been required by June 11, 2024, to analyze further the new Supreme Court decision’s implications on the funding and appointment of Smith.

As the community and political watchers eagerly await the next turn in these high-profile cases, the arguments raised by Trump’s legal team underscore a broader dialogue on the boundaries of political influence and legal accountability in America.

In conclusion, the unfolding events could significantly influence not only the legal precedents concerning presidential powers and accountability but also the public's perception of justice being impartially administered or politically motivated. Trump's legal challenges continue to provoke debate and division across the political spectrum, as the nation watches closely.
