Former President Donald Trump’s camp accused special counsel Jack Smith of election interference after Smith asked the Supreme Court to quickly resolve a debate over whether Trump has immunity from prosecution.

Trump’s re-election campaign released a statement criticizing Smith and President Joe Biden for attempting to preserve a trial date one day before Super Tuesday.

“Crooked Joe Biden’s henchman, Deranged Jack Smith is so obsessed with interfering in the 2024 Presidential Election with the goal of preventing President Trump from retaking the Oval Office, as the President is poised to do, that Smith is willing to try for a Hail Mary by racing to the Supreme Court and attempting to bypass the appellate process,” a Trump spokesperson said.

“Deranged may need to be reminded that the Supreme Court has not been kind to him, including by handing down a rare unanimous rebuke when the Court overturned him 8-0 in the McDonnell case,” the spokesperson added.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley wrote, “The only reason for this petition is to seek to guarantee a trial of Trump (and possible conviction) before the election,” on X.

Turley continued, “The Supreme Court may not view a trial of Trump during the campaign to be as motivating or urgent as does Smith. This is a novel legal argument that the Court would ordinarily prefer to hear the views from the appellate judges.”

Smith’s team requested the high court to review the immunity question before a federal appeals court had a chance to rule on the matter, claiming imperative public importance.

Trump has pleaded not guilty in the federal case, and his camp maintains that the prosecution is politically motivated.

“As President Trump has said over and over again, this prosecution is completely politically motivated,” explained Trump’s spokesperson.

“There is absolutely no reason to rush this sham to trial except to injure President Trump and tens of millions of his supporters.”

“President Trump will continue to fight for Justice and oppose these authoritarian tactics,” promised the spokesperson.
