The House GOP sent out a subpoena threat to Jack Smith after he has refused to turn over documents and communications that may be unlawful.
What is Jack Smith hiding. If he wasn’t colluding with the DOJ he would have nothing to fear. And if he was coordinating with the DOJ, he would stonewall Jordan and the House GOP.
Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) sent a letter to Smith requesting new documents as well as the ones he has refused to turn over.
The letter claimed that both Smith and the DOJ has not fulfilled their duties to turn over previously requested information.
A statement released by the judiciary panel warned:
“If the Department of Justice continues stonewalling the investigation, the Committee may be forced to resort [to the] compulsory process.”
Smith has dreamed up two cases against President Trump. One is in Florida in which Smith is trying to prosecute Trump which by law he had the right tgo retain. Meanwhile the DOJ has no plans to prosecute Joe Biden for documents he stole without any authority of any kind. The second case involves whether or not Trump had presidential immunity. That case is now on hold until the Supreme Court decides if the immunity argument is valid or not. The Supreme Court will also be deciding if charges of conspiracy can be leveled against Trump.
The lawmakers wrote:
“To compound our existing concerns about the actions of our office, we recently learned that you had compelled from Twitter voluminous amounts of private information — including core political speech — of millions of Americans, without an apparent specialized nexus to criminal activity.”
“Accordingly, the Committee is conducting oversight in order to inform potential legislative reforms, including possible reforms regarding politically motivated prosecutions of current and former Presidents by federal prosecutors and disclosure requirements for Special Counsels and their staff.”
The letter claimed the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Smith have failed to “sufficiently” respond to prior information demands, and an accompanying statement released by the judiciary panel warned, “If the Department of Justice continues stonewalling the investigation, the Committee may be forced to resort [to the] compulsory process.”
Trump has pleaded not guilty to the charges he faces in these cases and other legal matters that loom over his latest White House bid. He claims that politically motivated prosecutors are conducting a “witch hunt” against him.
Their new set of demands aims to secure documents and communications related to discussions about the case against Trump between DOJ offices, salaries and expenses, hiring for the special counsel’s team, and the Twitter search warrant. A new deadline for this information and past requests was set on January 4.
The DOJ told The Daily Wire it received the letter but declined to comment further.
Democrats have criticized the GOP’s efforts to gather information from Smith’s endeavors, accusing Republicans of trying to interfere with law enforcement activities.
