The Supreme Court handed Jack Smith a deadline that gave Joe Biden heartburn

Feb 16, 2024

Joe Biden is counting on Jack Smith to deliver a criminal conviction ahead of the November election.

Smith is now racing the clock.

And the Supreme Court handed Jack Smith a deadline that gave Joe Biden heartburn.

Chief Justice John Roberts gave Smith until February 20 to respond to Donald Trump’s request to stay a D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decision rejecting his bid to throw out the politically motivated charges brought against him for contesting the 2020 election because of Presidential immunity.

Not only did the Circuit Court reject Trump’s immunity bid, but they also sought to close off his options of appealing the case.

Normally, a defendant would request an en banc, which means the entire court – not just the three-Judge panel who heard the case – hears the appeal.

That normally takes 30 days.

A defendant then has 90 days to appeal to the Supreme Court.

Any criminal trial proceeding is paused while these appeals play out.

But the Judges on the D.C. Court know if they allow Trump to follow the normal timelines, then it would mean Smith can’t put him on trial before the election.

Putting Trump on trial is what Joe Biden wants, and therefore, it’s what Smith and his Democrat Judges want.

In their motion, Trump’s lawyers argued that granting the stay would allow Trump to follow the same appeals process as any other criminal defendant in America.

“Allowing President Trump to pursue en banc review in the D.C. Circuit will provide an opportunity for similar thoughtful consideration in the lower court before this Court addresses the novel, complex, and momentous issues at stake in this appeal,” the stay motion read.

The right to a speedy trial is guaranteed to the defendant, not the government.

Since they have unlimited resources and manpower with which to take away the American people’s freedom, the founders designed an adversarial criminal justice system to put every burden on the state.

But in this case, Smith and a group of Judges turned that foundational principle on its head.

Their number-one priority is seeing Trump tried and convicted before the election because that is the only chance Joe Biden has of winning a second term.
