 Jack Smith asks judge to bar Trump from making ‘political attacks’ in 2020 election trial
by Zach Schonfeld - 12/27/23 11:42 AM ET

Special counsel Jack Smith is seeking to bar former President Trump from making “political attacks” about his federal 2020 election subversion criminal prosecution at trial, urging a judge to prohibit Trump from claiming to jurors he is being selectively prosecuted and introducing certain other evidence.

“Through public statements, filings, and argument in hearings before the Court, the defense has attempted to inject into this case partisan political attacks and irrelevant and prejudicial issues that have no place in a jury trial,” senior assistant special counsel Molly Gaston wrote in court papers filed Wednesday.

“Although the Court can recognize these efforts for what they are and disregard them, the jury — if subjected to them — may not,” she continued. “The Court should not permit the defendant to turn the courtroom into a forum in which he propagates irrelevant disinformation, and should reject his attempt to inject politics into this proceeding.”

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.
Nonsense. The whole trial is a political attack.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

The whole case against Trump is a political attack in order to TRY to keep the Dims in control of the country,the budget,and the lawmaking.

Not to mention keep them "In da monies" from selling off America for personal profits and political positions for life.

If Idie Amin were still alive,he would be insanely  jealous of the DNC.
