Redpill78 discusses former President Donald Trump’s brilliant legal move, challenging prosecutor Jack Smith and the Department of Justice. RedPill78 describes the move as a “checkmate.”
For those seeking more details, here’s a more detailed summary of the case from Robert Gouveia on Watching The Watchers. Trump’s team submitted a 37-page motion to compel, asking Judge Tanya Chutkan to order Jack Smith’s office to disclose discoverable material to the defense. In the motion, Trump’s attorneys are seeking information related to January 6th, the 2020 election, election-related attacks and MUCH more.
Trump’s defense is seeking a clearer definition of who makes up Jack Smith’s prosecution team and the extent of involvement of other government agencies in the J6 investigation. In new filings, Trump attorneys argue they are entitled to discovery to investigate the true nature of the Special Counsel’s investigation, which may have broader implications.
Judge Chutkan denied Trump’s request for subpoenas for the missing January 6th records, finding that the records were never “missing” at all. In her order, Chutkan ruled the records weren’t transmitted, and thus are not subject to the request. She also said Trump’s defense could obtain the other information they need with reasonable due diligence, and conveniently, found no basis for granting subpoenas.
