    US Attorney General Appoints Special Counsel Jack Smith to Prosecute Donald Trump

    It's a matter of law now.

    Allow me to be the first to say I don't know Jack Smith, and neither do you.

    Jack Smith

    Jack Smith was appointed First Assistant United States Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee in February of 2015. Prior to his appointment, from 2010 to 2015 Mr. Smith served as Chief of the Public Integrity Section of the United States Department of Justice, supervising the litigation of complex public corruption cases across the country. From 2008 to 2010, Jack served as Investigation Coordinator in the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague, Netherlands. In that capacity, he supervised sensitive investigations of foreign government officials and militia for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide. Mr. Smith joined the ICC from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York, where he served for 9 years in a number of supervisory positions, including Chief of Criminal Litigation and Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division. As Chief of Criminal Litigation, Mr. Smith supervised approximately 100 criminal prosecutors across a range of program areas, such as public corruption, violent crime and gangs, and white collar and complex financial fraud. Before becoming an Assistant United States Attorney, Mr. Smith served for five years as an Assistant District Attorney in the New York County District Attorney's Office.
    Mr. Smith is the recipient of the Director's Award from the Department of Justice, the Attorney General's Award for Distinguished Service, the Federal Bar Association's Younger Federal Attorney Award, the Eastern District Association's Charles Rose Award and the Henry L.

    He appears to be a thruster, given his Upstate CV and the look in his eye...

    Biden sets the special prosecutor adrift w/out interference, and control from DOJ in an effort to distance the admin from the investigation and potential prosecution of Trump, especially since he's a declared candidate. Plus it probably pissed Trump off since he's trying to hide from prosecution by declaring so soon.

    Hopefully the guy has a sack unlike Mueller.



    ETA: It should have been and most likely was Merrick Garland's call, not Biden's. Hopefully there is a firewall btwn the White House and the DOJ regarding this move.

    Oneonta is south of Albany, clearly not Upstate.

    Upstate deniers are worse than election or climate deniers.

    No idea if this will turn out to be true, but ‘Popehat’ is a former Federal prosecutor, so one can hope.

    Another possibility is due to Trump's announced presidential campaign. It's one thing to investigate a private citizen through normal channels. It's another to investigate a presidential candidate, hence the necessity of appointing a special counsel once that happened.

    Depends on whether thread focuses on actual news / developments. The Ukraine thread has kept me updated pretty well.

    But yeah, 10

    Yours, ironically, is the 10th post. And you lost your bet when you posted.

    Pretty sure Biden isn't within 10 miles of this hot mess, as he shouldn't be. Perhaps you meant Merrick?

    You're right it was Garland's call.
