Washington Post contributor Jason Willick wrote an opinion article titled, “Politics Are Now Clearly Shaping Jack Smith’s Trump Prosecution”, criticizing Smith’s alleged bias against Donald Trump.

Willick attacked the special counsel Smith and accused him of pursuing a political agenda, particularly in relation to the charge of attempting to overturn the 2020 election results.

He also criticized Smith’s attempt to expedite the trial before the 2024 election, suggesting a political motive rather than a pursuit of justice. (Trending: Dr. Fauci Says the Unthinkable About Going To Church)

“There are real legal problems with special counsel Jack Smith’s election-interference case against Donald Trump,” admitted Willick.

“The former president’s effort to overturn the 2020 election was despicable, but political lying isn’t generally a crime. Smith’s case thus must rely on some of the vaguest laws in the federal penal code, applying them in untested ways,” explained the analyst.

“Now, in a filing at the Supreme Court, Smith has all but announced that his prosecutorial timeline is controlled by the 2024 general election in which Trump is likely to be a candidate,” he continued.

Willick alleged that Smith was attempting to, “fast-track the Trump trial based on what can be described only as a political timetable.”

“This argument is circular: The case must be accelerated, because if it’s not accelerated, it will be delayed,” challenged Willick.

Predicting, “If Trump is not tried and convicted by the election, the chances of a Biden victory will take a hit.”

“Trump, of course, wants to delay the trial out of self-preservation. If he wins the election, his Justice Department could halt his federal prosecutions. But if Smith’s decisions were independent of the political calendar, that would be of no concern to him,” he affirmed.

Willick added, “His job is supposedly to work for the Justice Department — not to try to influence which party controls the Justice Department at a given time.”

Concluding, “The special counsel is an aggressive political actor seeking a political outcome as much as a legal one. The fiction that he is anything else is outliving its usefulness.”
