Clarence Thomas was handed one case that could upend Jack Smith’s witch hunt

Mar 7, 2024

Democrats are trying to twist the law to target Donald Trump and his supporters.

One novel legal theory being used against the former President could collapse.

And Clarence Thomas was handed one case that could upend Jack Smith’s witch hunt.

Former President Donald Trump and his supporters are facing charges for obstructing an official proceeding over the events of January 6.

Hundreds of Trump supporters were convicted or charged with obstructing an official proceeding for allegedly disrupting Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 election.

Special Counsel Jack Smith’s four-count criminal indictment against Trump includes a charge of obstructing an official proceeding and conspiracy to do it.

Democrat prosecutors and Smith are stretching a law passed in the aftermath of the Enron scandal in 2001 for financial crimes to manufacture the charges against Trump and his supporters.

Obstructing an official proceeding is a crime under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which was meant to prevent the shredding and destruction of documents.

Democrats have stretched the law to use it to target people for protesting the results of an election.

The Supreme Court is hearing a case that could overturn hundreds of January 6 convictions and invalidate two of Smith’s criminal charges against Trump.

The court will decide Joseph W. Fischer v. United States, which was brought by one of the January 6 protestors convicted of obstructing an official proceeding.

Fischer’s lawyers are arguing that the government misused the Sarbanes-Oxley Act beyond its intended use of stopping financial crimes.

“Whoever alters, destroys, mutilates, or conceals a record, document, or other object, or attempts to do so, with the intent to impair the object’s integrity or availability for use in an official proceeding; or (2) otherwise obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so,” the section of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act on official proceedings that is being used to charge Fischer reads.

Since Democrat prosecutors were searching for anything to use to drop the hammer on Trump supporters, they resorted to an obscure law designed to target financial crimes.

Obstructing an official proceeding carries a jail sentence of up to 20 years, which makes it a useful weapon for rogue prosecutors.

The Supreme Court has ruled against expansive interpretations of the law by prosecutors in past cases.

The consequences of the Court’s decision will be enormous for Trump and his supporters.

“Needless to say, a Supreme Court ruling that limits the application of the obstruction charge to documents or records has the potential to undermine Smith’s prosecution of Trump and overturn hundreds of existing Jan. 6 convictions,” POLITICO reported.

The Supreme Court could deal Democrat prosecutors an enormous setback in their witch hunt against Donald Trump and his supporters.
