Jack Smith Files New Motion with Judge Cannon, Claims Trump Supporters Pose ‘Imminent Threat’

The Democrats’ special prosecutor Jack Smith has filed another aggressive motion with the courts in an effort to target President Donald Trump.

Smith filed a new motion to Judge Aileen Cannon, demanding that Trump be silenced by the court.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) special counsel doesn’t “mince words” in his motion to Cannon, according to MSNBC legal analyst and former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner

Following his indictment by the DOJ in June of last year on forty federal charges, Trump is scheduled to stand trial sometime in the near future.

Smith’s charges allege that Trump illegally held confidential information after leaving the White House in 2021 and impeded the government’s efforts to obtain them

In August of 2022, the FBI conducted a search warrant at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, which is located in Palm Beach, Florida.

The 45th president has entered a plea of not guilty and has stated that the case is being moved forward for political reasons.

Specifically, the politically motivated case seeks to derail Trump’s presidential bid against Democrat President Joe Biden.

Consequently, Biden ultimately presides over Attorney General Merrick Garland, who runs the DOJ and assigned Smith as special counsel.

As Smith highlighted a new piece of reported evidence to bolster his argument, he asked Cannon, a Trump appointee, to grant his request to place the 45th president under a gag order.

This request was made in a court file that was submitted on Friday.

The special counsel claims that a threat was made by a “supporter of Trump” against FBI agents.

According to Smith, Trump must be “gagged” because his supporters pose an “imminent threat.”

“Statements that present a significant, imminent, and foreseeable danger to the law enforcement agents working on this case pose a significant and imminent threat to the integrity of these criminal proceedings,” Smith wrote in the filing.

In his filing, Smith cites an alleged incident that occurred on June 11 and involved a man from Texas.

Smith claims the man made contact with and threatened an FBI agent who was working on an investigation into the president’s son, Hunter Biden.

In the filing, the special counsel wrote:

“Just last week, a supporter of Trump called an FBI agent associated with the Hunter Biden case and claimed that, if Trump wins reelection, FBI agents will be thrown in jail; and if he does not win, the agents will be ‘hunt[ed] down’ and ‘slaughter[ed]’ in their own homes, after which ‘[w]e’re going to slaughter your whole f***ing family.’

“No court would tolerate another defendant deliberately creating such immediate risks to the safety of law enforcement, and this Court should not wait for a tragic event before taking action in this case.”

Kirschner, a former assistant United States attorney who is a frequent critic of Trump, discussed Smith’s move in a video that was uploaded to his YouTube channel on Saturday.

“Let me start with the new motion that was just filed by Special Counsel Jack Smith and the one thing I will give him is he does not mince words.

“He is direct, he is blunt, he is unyielding….but we have to have an honest discussion about whether forever trying to restrain, control, Donald Trump with gag orders makes any sense given what we have learned, given Donald Trump’s repeated violations of those gag orders,” Kirschner said.
