As you know, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments last week on the issue of whether a President has immunity from prosecution for actions he took in an official capacity.  One thing we’ve always wondered about the cases being brought by “Special Counsel” Jack Smith was why this wild man has the authority to bring them in the first place.  His appointment as special counsel was made by AG Merrick Garland, with no confirmation by the Senate as is supposed to happen.  (Note: we made a similar observation about Nancy Pelosi’s hand-picked J6 “Kangaroo Kommittee.”) 

Lo and behold, Justice Clarence Thomas did question attorneys about that last Wednesday.  Former Attorneys General Edwin Meese and Michael Mukasey had filed a 42-page amicus brief with the Court on March 19 that said regardless of what one might think about the immunity issue, Smith “does not have authority to conduct the underlying prosecution.”  He’s been given way too much power for someone who has not gone through the confirmation process by the Senate.  Other special counsels Robert Hur and David Weiss received their Senate confirmation.

According to Meese and Mukasey, the statutes cited by Garland when making this appointment have not “remotely authorized the appointment by the Attorney General of a private citizen or government employee to receive extraordinary criminal law enforcement power under the title of Special Counsel.”

As they wrote: “Smith’s appointment was unlawful, as are all actions flowing from it, including his prosecution of former President Trump.”  Will the justices say anything about this as part of their decision about immunity?  It would normally be going through Judge Aileen Cannon’s Florida court first, as Trump’s attorneys have filed a motion there to dismiss based on Smith’s improper appointment.  Judge Cannon has yet to rule.

Something else huge that just emerged in the “classified” documents case:  After Judge Cannon’s release of unredacted materials last week, investigative reporter Julie Kelly discovered testimony from an FBI agent saying that the General Services Administration (GSA) had been in possession of six pallets (!) of boxes of Trump’s documents stored in Virginia BEFORE ordering Trump’s team to COME GET THEM.

This apparently has not been mentioned in any timeline of the “crime.”  It appears that Biden’s administration was responsible for making Trump move all those boxes down to Mar-A-Lago.  Then, what do you know?  Mar-A-Lago was raided.

This raises a number of questions.  But Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch is sure of one thing: “It was a set-up from the get-go.”  We’ll have updates tomorrow.  In the meantime...

And from our pop culture guru Pat Reeder, a clip of Monty Python possibly predicting the Biden DOJ tactics against Trump way back in 1969…
