Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz has filed an election interference complaint against Special Counsel Jack Smith, alleging Smith is attempting to unfairly influence the 2024 presidential election by pushing for an early start date in Trump’s criminal trials.

In a letter to the DOJ Inspector General, Gaetz claimed that Smith tacitly admits the case is political by requesting the Supreme Court rapidly review Trump’s immunity claims due to “public importance,” but not stating why rapidity is needed.

“Were there a legitimate, non-election related purpose for this request, these attorneys, who have filed in appeals courts many times, would have listed such,” Gaetz wrote.

Gaetz argued the only conclusion is Smith sees it as paramount to hold a trial before the 2024 election.

“There can only be one conclusion: Special Counsel Jack Smith sees it as of paramount importance to hold a trial before the November 2024 election, but he is unable to explicitly say so, as such a justification is in violation of Departmental policy and law,” he said.

Citing DOJ policy, Gaetz wrote federal prosecutors cannot time actions to affect elections or benefit candidates.

Federal prosecutors “may never select the timing of any action, including investigative steps, criminal charges, or statements, for the purpose of affecting any election, or for the purpose of giving an advantage or disadvantage to any candidate or political party,” Gaetz wrote.

Gaetz noted that Smith’s pursuit of Trump is undoubtedly partisan, and actions to speed the trial violate rules and law, demonstrating the only reason is to unlawfully interfere in 2024.

“The witch hunt against President Trump by Attorney General Garland and Special Counsel Smith is a partisan exercise, and the American people know it,” Gaetz said. “The actions of the Special Counsel Smith to speed up the trial against President Trump violate the DOJ’s rules and the law. His public comments and his office’s briefs before the Supreme Court demonstrate that he has no reason for his actions other than to unlawfully interfere in the 2024 presidential election.”
