Former President Donald Trump’s Save America PAC attorney criticized special counsel Jack Smith for questionable legal proceedings in the Jan. 6 election interference case, comparing it to Smith’s previous case against Bob McDonnell.

Smith filed an emergency appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court, while Trump’s lawyers filed one with the Appeals Court for the District of Columbia to determine if Trump is immune from prosecution due to actions while he was president.

The federal judge overseeing the case paused it until the appeals played out. Trump’s campaign also criticized Smith’s filing. (Trending: Joe Biden Impeachment Formalized As Republicans Unite)

Lawyer Christina Bobb said, “That’s very right. It’s a playbook that Jack Smith has done before; he’s trying to do the same thing to Donald Trump that he did to Bob McDonnell in Virginia,” she continued.

Adding, “And this appeal must go as quickly as it possibly can for Jack Smith to keep the timeline, to be able to do exactly what he did with Bob McDonnell.”

“He rammed through a conviction,” charged Bobb.

“It gets overturned eight to zero on appeal. Right. He’s exonerated, but in the meantime, the election took place and interfered with that exactly,” she explained.

“That’s what he’s trying to do. Yep,” she affirmed.

Bobb also criticized the vagueness of Smith’s appeal.

“What information did they get? Where did they get it? How did they get it? Was there a subpoena involved? Was there a FISA court involved?” asked Robb, rhetorically.

“This is a blatant violation of due process,” she continued.

Adding, “That’s depriving the president of an opportunity to provide a meaningful defense when they don’t even know what this information is.”

“It [Supreme Court] should dismiss the case immediately. Presidential immunity is well established in our case law,” claimed Bobb.

“If Jack Smith does get his wish on this, I think this is a very clear case of be careful what you wish for, warned Trump’s attorney.

“Peter knows better than anybody how they’ve already obliterated executive privilege. And if they now obliterate presidential immunity, be very, very careful for the precedent you’re setting,” she warned.

Trump spokesperson said in reaction, “Crooked Joe Biden’s henchman, Deranged Jack Smith, is so obsessed with interfering in the 2024 Presidential Election to prevent 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.”

“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.

Smith’s office stated that this appeal was an “extraordinary request” in an “extraordinary case.”

The team added, “It is of imperative public importance that respondent’s claims of immunity be resolved by this Court and that respondent’s trial proceed as promptly as possible if his claim of immunity is rejected.”

The case raises issues of due process and presidential immunity, with potential far-reaching implications.
