CNN Legal Analyst Destroys Jack Smith’s Bid To Rush Trump Trial

(Congress Report) – Elie Honig, a senior legal analyst with left-wing propaganda maker CNN, offered a breakdown on Wednesday of why Special Counsel Jack Smith’s Jan. 6 case against former commander-in-chief Donald Trump might take quite some time to get rolling, despite all the effort he’s making to try and jumpstart proceedings as quickly as possible. And yet, we’re supposed to believe there are no political motivations for this nonsense? Really? Come now.

If this were about justice and holding elected officials accountable for their actions, there would not be a rush to get this trial underway before the election next year.

“Although the Washington, D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals may rule on Trump’s election interference before January ends, Trump’s right to ask for a review and Supreme Court ruling will likely slow it down, Honig stated on ‘CNN This Morning.’ The Supreme Court rejected Smith’s request Friday for it to promptly consider a crucial question in the case without letting the lower court weigh in first,” the Daily Caller reported.

“I think it’s very likely that the court of appeals will rule by the end of January,” Honig asserted strongly. “Now, the problem for Jack Smith is then Donald Trump can ask for what’s called en banc review. That takes a few weeks. Then he can ask the Supreme Court to take the case. That takes months. The trial date here is March 4. I think that’s very much in jeopardy.”

Honig then shared his belief that the former president will wait until the last minute to appeal the rulings. The decision from the Supreme Court is throwing a block in the road for Smith who has been working around the clock to ensure the trial will start on its scheduled March 4 date. However, another roadblock for the special counsel is District Judge Tanya Chutkan’s decision to pause the proceedings in order to allow Trump to appeal whether or not he has presidential immunity after Chutkan herself declared he did not.

The Daily Caller also reported that Smith is attempting to prevent the former president from informing the jury during the case that the trial is politically motivated. Now why would he not want the jury to hear that message? Maybe because it’s true? There’s something incredibly shady about that.

“Trump’s claim that the indictment ‘was directed by the current president as a form of election interference’ is both wrong and irrelevant, Smith argued in a 20-page filing, telling Judge Tanya Chutkan they would be ‘prejudicial if presented to the jury.’ Smith also asked Chutkan to bar Trump from introducing evidence relating to agency preparation for and responses to Jan. 6, undercover agents at the Capitol and allegations of foreign influence,” the DC said.

“Following his indictment in this District, the defendant has made unsupported and politicized claims of selective and vindictive prosecution, indicated that he intends to explore irrelevant issues related to the Government’s investigation, and complained that the grand jury’s indictment and the Court’s trial date will interfere with his political activities,” the filing goes on to say. “None of these issues goes to the defendant’s guilt or innocence; all of them should be excluded.”

Smith and other liberals are terrified of Trump. There’s no alternative explanation for all of the effort being poured into this case. Leftists will do anything to keep him out of the White House.

  1. Harry Truman summed it up very precisely when he was invited to a formal dinner at the White House hosted by President Richard Nixon. Truman’s response was, “I don’t like the man, I don’t trust the man, and I won’t sit at the same table and share food with the man”! President Truman did an excellent job refusing an invitation from later disgraced President Nixon! I will paraphrase President Truman’s comment. My feelings for former President Donald Trump are: I don’t like the man, I don’t trust the man, and Hell will freeze over before I vote for the man!
