Trump Team Fights Back With 'Powerhouse Motion' Requesting That DC Court Hold Jack Smith in Contempt
Susie Moore


Former President Donald Trump's legal team filed a "powerhouse motion" in D.C. Circuit Court on Thursday asking the court to hold Special Counsel Jack Smith in contempt. To understand the basis for the motion, let's set the table:

Smith caused a bit of a stir the last week of December when his office filed a 20-page motion in limine with the D.C. Circuit Court in the 2020 election interference case pending before Judge Tanya Chutkan.

While many remarked on the apparent aim of the motion to limit Trump and the ability of his team to "inject politics" into the case (never mind that the case is, itself, largely about an election), in truth, it was a fairly standard pre-trial motion — the sort of pleading wherein parties seek to limit the ability of the opposition to introduce certain items or categories of evidence. Such motions, whether filed in criminal or civil matters, typically "shoot for the moon" and ask for all manner of relief from the court with the expectation that some — perhaps most — of the requests will be denied or, at least, reserved until the trial itself. (Sometimes, judges want to actually see how the evidence is playing out before making a definitive ruling.)
