Former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese and two law professors submitted an impartial advisory statement to the Supreme Court, asserting that Jack Smith did not acquire his authority as special counsel in a legal or constitutional manner and therefore lacks standing to represent the United States in front of a federal court.

They argued that the Biden administration violated fundamental law in its ongoing persecution of former President Donald Trump.

Smith submitted a petition to the Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari asking the justices to rule on the question of presidential immunity. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

Meese and colleagues questioned the validity of Smith’s appointment, stating that Garland exceeded his statutory and constitutional authority by purporting to appoint Smith.

“Whether private citizen Jack Smith lacks authority to represent the United States, which jurisdictional requirement must exist at all stages of litigation, and which cannot be waived, in filing his Petition for a Writ of Certiorari in this Court?” asked the court filling.

“This Court should reject Mr. Smith’s request for certiorari before judgment for the simple reason that he lacks authority to ask for it,” wrote Meese and his colleagues.

“Nor does he have authority to conduct the underlying prosecution,” they continued.

The group alleges that Garland “exceeded his statutory and constitutional authority by purporting to appoint Smith.”

“What federal statutes and the Constitution do not allow, however, is for the Attorney General to appoint a private citizen, who has never been confirmed by the Senate, as a substitute United States Attorney under the title ‘Special Counsel,’ wrote the legal experts.

“That is what happened on November 18, 2022. That appointment was unlawful, as are all the legal actions that have flowed from it, including citizen Smith’s current attempt to obtain a ruling from this Court,” they explained.
