Special Counsel Jack Smith was appointed by Merrick Garland to investigate Donald Trump’s alleged massive theft of Top Secret files, and he is making life quite uncomfortable for the ex-president. So the previous POTUS decided to pull another trick out of his bag: deflection.
Wednesday Trump tried to move Smith’s attention from 45 to 44, President Barack Obama, according to The Salon.
It seems, Trump kept 300 files in and around his Mar-a-Lago home and even carried boxes of them onto Air Force One when he was president to entertain himself. And after a number of Trump’s attempts to absolve himself from the crime, the ex-president posted a message on his Twitter alternative, Truth Social. The former president decided to try another excuse. He wrote, according to The Newsweek Magazine:
‘Why aren’t they asking President Obama what’s going on with his Administration? Crooked Hillary took and illegally deleted and acid washed 33,000 Emails AFTER getting a Subpoena for those Emails from the United States Congress, and who knows how many Classified Documents Joe took, especially pertaining to Ukraine and China.’
The FBI had been investigating then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Former FBI Director James Comey chose an unfortunate time to bring the nation’s attention to Clinton. She was in the last weeks of her campaign for president against Trump.
However, Comey said her use of a private email server in her home when she was secretary was careless, not illegal.
Last September, Clinton tweeted:
‘I can’t believe we’re still talking about this, but my emails…As Trump’s problems continue to mount, the right is trying to make this about me again. There’s even a “Clinton Standard.” The fact is that I had zero emails that were classified.’
Meanwhile, President Joe Biden’s attorneys discovered secret files behind a cabinet while they were taking down his think tank office last November. The President immediately turned the files over to the National Archives. President Biden’s people also discovered more files locked in the garage where he stored his classic Mustang.
At that point, Attorney General Merrick Garland set up a special counsel to investigate the sitting president, United States Attorney Robert Hur.
The previous president continued with his rant, going after Special Counsel Jack Smith and others:
‘Maybe Trump Hating Special ‘Prosecutor’ Jack Smith, who is doing the dirty work for his Marxist Democrat friends, should do the right thing for our Country!’
The former White House resident released another post noting that America had:
‘become the Investigation Capital of the World. Actually, that’s all we do, and it’s only good for our many enemies. They could not be happier as they brilliantly plot our demise!!!’
Smith is also investigating the ex-president’s various other attempts to remain in power.
