Jack Smith Has A Devastating New Weapon He Can Use Against Trump


An accusation from a former top Homeland Security Department official should have failed, twice-indicted former president Donald Trump terrified, according to an ex-federal prosecutor.

Specifically, Miles Taylor, who was DHS chief of staff in the Trump administration, writes in his new book that Trump shared secret documents related to the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi with reporters.

That report led MSNBC host Katie Phang to tell former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade, “NBC is releasing exclusive reporting about ex-Trump aide Miles Taylor in which Miles alleges in 2018, Trump’s press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, described an incident with Trump displaying to reporters classified documents related to journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s death.”

“Do you think Jack Smith has already had a lead on this? I mean, we keep on hearing these things pop up here and there. We saw in the indictment about Bedminster and the writing of a book, and journalists being present, even a PAC person like Susie Wiles. I mean, is this the kind of stuff we think Jack Smith would have a bead on it already?”

“He might, Katie,” McQuade responded. “It could be valuable as what you know is 404(b) evidence; that is evidence of the person’s common scheme or plan.”

McQuade added, “And so, even if he doesn’t charge it, you can use that as evidence to show that Trump is very reckless when he handles classified information. So, every piece of evidence brings value.”

Think about it: According to Taylor, Trump was waving around classified documents that related to the possible crimes of the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. That sort of information is not meant to be shared with anyone who doesn’t have a high-level security clearance.

With each day, Jack Smith’s case against Trump grows stronger. It’ll be fascinating to see the ex-president’s reaction to this latest bombshell.

Alan Dershowitz Predicts Trump Will Be Convicted Before The 2024 Election

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that he fully expects failed one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump will be convicted in multiple jurisdictions before a single vote is cast in the 2024 presidential election.

Appearing on Real America’s Voice, Dershowitz was asked by host Gina Loudon if any of Trump’s criminal cases would be resolved before the 2024 election.

“Oh yeah, that’s the problem,” Dershowitz responded. “We’re going to have some convictions of Donald Trump because he’s being tried in districts where you can’t get a fair trial, and then these convictions will be reversed after the election.”

“The strategy is down and dirty, unlawful convictions to influence the election, and then we don’t care if they’re reversed after the election because, by that time, it will have had the intended impact on the election,” he added. “So yeah, I think we’ll see some convictions.”

Dershowitz also suggested that New York prosecutors could “convict a ham sandwich” if it was named Trump.

“I think the same thing is true in Fulton County.”

The noted attorney also insisted the federal election interference case that will be heard in Washington, D.C. should be delayed until after the election.

“Read the Constitution. It’s the right of the defendant to a speedy trial. The defendant also has the right to prepare for a trial adequately, and if you have 12 million pages of discovery, no lawyer can prepare for a trial within several months.”

“This trial definitely ought to be put off until after the election.”

Fortunately, Dershowitz doesn’t get to decide when any of the trials are held. That determination will be made by judges who know a hell of a lot more about the case than he ever will.

WATCH: Adam Schiff Destroys Jim Jordan For Serving As Trump’s ‘Criminal Defense Firm’

During a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee today that featured testimony from Attorney General Merrick Garland, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) took a verbal battering ram to the committee chair, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), accusing him of serving as little more than an attorney for failed former president Donald Trump.

Speaking to Garland, Schiff noted that Jordan was using the committee to obstruct justice for Trump.

“The chairman would abuse the power of this committee by trying to interfere in the prosecutions of Donald Trump by trying to use the committee’s power of subpoena to compel criminal discovery, in effect making the committee a kind of criminal defense firm for the former president.”

The California Democrat continued:

“Through Mr. Jordan’s actions, he would establish the principle that the rule of law should apply to almost everyone, just not to the leader of his party.”

Schiff concluded by warning such actions would result in a dictatorship.

“Mr. Jordan hopes to camouflage his assault on the rule of law by falsely claiming that Donald Trump is the victim of unequal justice,” said Schiff. “It is a claim that is as transparently political as it is devoid of any factual basis.”

Of course, Schiff is absolutely right. Jim Jordan and others in the GOP are only interested in trying to protect Donald Trump. Too bad they can’t all go to prison together.

Jack Smith Has A ‘Killer Witness’ Who Can Send Trump To Prison For A Long Time: Report

According to one of Donald Trump’s former assistants, the failed ex-president was so cavalier with who saw classified documents he kept at Mar-a-Lago in violation of federal law that he would write to-do lists on those files and give them to her.

ABC News reported Monday that Molly Michael has spoken with investigators working for Special Counsel Jack Smith, and what she had to say was terrifying.

Michael told investigators that — more than once — she received requests or taskings from Trump that were written on the back of notecards, and she later recognized those notecards as sensitive White House materials — with visible classification markings — used to brief Trump while he was still in office about phone calls with foreign leaders or other international-related matters.

The notecards with classification markings were at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate when FBI agents searched the property on Aug. 8, 2022 — but the materials were not taken by the FBI, according to sources familiar with what Michael told investigators.

Michael will make one hell of a “killer witness” for Smith at trial, according to former federal prosecutor Harry Litman, who told MSNBC host Chris Jansing :

“This playing around with notecards shows he’s cavalier, shows he’s very Trumpian. But what you read, Chris, is the real punch line. Knowing that the FBI wants to interview her, he said you don’t know anything about the boxes. And by the way, we know that is clearly a lie. It sounds like it anyway because she takes a picture and gives it to him. So, he knows, and the picture is in the indictment.”

Michael, who is identified as “Employee 2” in the federal indictment, is pure gold as a witness, Litman continued.

“She’s going to be a killer witness here. No deal, no ax to grind. In fact, was loyal to Trump. Goes to Mar-a-Lago with him after, and then finally leaves when she knows he’s basically breaking the law and obstructing justice. She gives absolute killer evidence about his trying to keep more than the boxes he had given up already to the FBI, and that’s why the search ensued. Very, very powerful witness, she’s going to be.”

A big problem for Trump, Litman noted, is that so many of the witnesses who have been loyal to him so far and refused to cooperate with Smith are now looking at massive legal bills they simply cannot hope to pay.

“For example, Jenna Elis, saying why is he not paying our fees? That’s exactly the kind of posture that is dangerous for Trump because if you are in financially dire straits, that is one real reason you would go to the prosecution and try to cooperate. One quick additional point about Molly Michael, by the way. She is present when Trump makes the statement to Evan Corcoran, ‘What if we told [the FBI] nothing? Could we just pretend there is nothing there?’ So, to the extent, he tried to make that a credibility battle between Corcoran, she is there to break the tie in a very persuasive fashion.”


Business Crime

New York AG Has The Option Of Imposing ‘Corporate Death’ On Trump Organization

Letitia James is the Attorney General for the state of New York, and that makes her one of the most powerful prosecutors in the country, especially since she’s making it clear that she intends to “use every area of the law” as she investigates the president, his family, and his business, as NBC News has reported:

“New York law allows the attorney general to seek restitution and damages — and, in extreme cases, dissolution — if a business is found to have engaged in persistent fraud. There’s also the Martin Act, a 1921 statute designed to protect investors.

“Past attorneys general have used the Martin Act, considered to be the U.S.’s toughest such state statute in this realm, to expand their powers in the financial crimes sector. The law empowers the attorney general to subpoena witnesses and documents for information pertaining to possible fraud.”


As many crimes as the Trump Organization is suspected of having committed (Trump University was just the tip of the iceberg, experts say), AG James could use a legal sledgehammer as she goes about bringing charges against the president’s company, which just so happens to be run by his two eldest sons, Don Jr. and Eric. And that could prove especially catastrophic for the Trump business empire. The power wielded by James under the laws of New York could even be used for a “judgment of corporate death” if she chooses to seek the total dismantling Trump’s holdings in real estate and other businesses.


The New York AG has already signaled the direction she plans to pursue, at least initially, having subpoenaed banks that do business with Trump as a way of seeing inside the Trump Organization and Trump’s bank accounts.

Something James told MSNBC host Ari Melber should be of special concern to the president and anyone with connections to the Trump Organization:

“Most of (Trump’s) business activities are performed in New York, he engages in business in New York, he operates in New York and it’s really critically important that New Yorkers as taxpayers — it’s really critically important that we understand and know whether or not he devalued his corporations and he received some tax benefits thereof, that he engaged in false claims against New Yorkers.”


Letitia James is going after Trump on numerous fronts. But it’s her investigation of the Trump Organization that could well pose the greatest legal danger to him.
