Special Counsel Jack Smith was caught in the act, and Trump supporters everywhere are smiling for it. Smith recently submitted paperwork with the federal court overseeing the classified documents case against Donald Trump which detailed his admission that his team had incorrectly claimed to have turned over all evidence as required by law.
This is a major setback for the prosecution and has sparked much debate about the fairness of our justice system.
Prosecutors discovered during their investigation that video used as evidence “had not been processed and uploaded to the platform established for the defense to view” when they were getting ready to indict Mar-a-Lago property manager Carlos De Oliveira.
As a result, they were forced to admit in their filing that “the Government’s representation at the July 18 hearing that all surveillance footage the Government had obtained pre-indictment had been produced was therefore incorrect”.
It’s since been revealed that “all CCTV footage obtained by the government has now been given to the defendants”, per Smith’s team.
Lawyer and spokeswoman for former President Donald Trump Alina Habba spoke out against legacy media reporting surrounding her client’s various legal cases.
She suggested on Newsmax TV that “fake news” is tainting public perception of these cases, noting how this problem is not new for Trump who faced false claims of Russia collusion prior to his impeachment trial.
Habba went on to explain how many people tend only watch shows which confirm their beliefs based on political affiliation – creating an environment where truth is hard to come by.
She pointed out “how do we start to open our eyes to the truth? …if people don’t start doing that and stop being afraid of being targeted for being honest Americans, we’re going have a real problem”.
Former president Donald Trump saw some welcome news when judge Scott McAfee ruled he would not be compelled to stand trial alongside co-defendants Kenneth Chesebro and Sidney Powell in October following their ‘speedy-trial’ motion.
This ruling brought relief from an otherwise tumultuous legal battle which has seen many twists and turns so far, with no clear end in sight yet.
