Jack Smith made one wrong move that landed him in this awful situation

May 13, 2024

Jack Smith was hoping to get a criminal conviction for Donald Trump before the 2024 election.

But he may have just dealt his case a fatal setback.  

And Jack Smith made one wrong move that landed him in this awful situation.

Jack Smith admits to tampering with evidence in Trump case

Special Counsel Jack Smith made a shocking announcement in his criminal case against former President Donald Trump for allegedly mishandling classified documents.

In a court filing, Smith’s office admitted that prosecutors tampered with evidence that was seized during the FBI’s surprise raid on Mar-a-Lago in August of 2022.

And the rogue Special Prosecutor’s filing admitted that it had lied to the court about preserving the evidence.

The order of documents was jumbled when prosecutors were rooting through them.

Trump’s legal team is expected to argue that the former President had the documents arranged in the chronological order that he received them.

This could prove to be a costly mistake for Smith’s witch hunt.

Legal analyst: Smith made a big mistake by lying to the court

During an appearance on Fox Business, Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett said Smith lying to the court that he had preserved the evidence in the Trump classified documents case was “no small matter.”

“Prosecutors have a duty to preserve evidence, Larry, exactly as it is seized,” Jarrett told host Larry Kudlow. “Jack Smith’s Special Counsel admits now in court documents to altering, manipulating evidence against Trump. The digital scan of documents doesn’t match the physical order in the boxes that were seized.”

The Special Counsel’s office tried to downplay the seriousness of tampering with evidence to the judge.

“And Smith got caught,” Jarrett continued. “His excuse, ‘well, your honor, it is a complicated case, lots of documents,’ that is not an excuse. This is evidence tampering. It is destroying exculpatory evidence and, even worse, Smith lied to the court and he was forced to admit it although he did so in a footnote, ‘gee, I misled the judge.’ This is no small matter, Larry.”

According to Jarrett, Smith’s mistake would play into the hands of Trump’s defense.

“The chronology of documents is vital to Trump’s defense. The staff boxed up exactly what they received from the GSA that was sent to Mar-a-Lago,” Jarrett said. “And we also know the National Archives coordinated with Joe Biden’s White House and the Biden DOJ on how to bring criminal charges against Donald Trump. So one can argue that Trump is the victim of a setup.”

This is another disturbing sign that the fix was against Trump in the classified documents case.

Trump weighs in on Jack Smith bombshell

Trump blasted Smith on his Truth Social platform for tampering with evidence.

“It has always been clear that the ‘Documents Case’ is nothing but an Election Interference Scam concocted by Crooked Joe Biden, Deranged Jack Smith, and their Hacks and Thugs,” Trump posted. “Now, Deranged Jack has admitted in a filing in front of Judge Cannon to what I have been saying happened since the Illegal RAID on my home, Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida – That he and his team committed blatant Evidence Tampering by mishandling the very Boxes they used as a pretext to bring this Fake Case.”

Judge Aileen Cannon announced that the classified documents trial would be indefinitely delayed in order to resolve legal issues.

The odds of that case ever starting before the 2024 election have become slim to none.
