Conservative host and lawyer Mark Levin took aim at Special Counsel Jack Smith investigating alleged wrongdoing by former President Donald Trump.
“There’s a lot that has been said about these new indictments that have been brought against President Trump, a superseding list of indictments, and I want to get into this so-called superseding list a little bit later. But that said, what everybody is missing here is President Trump didn’t delete a single video. How do I know that? I read this indictment. He is charged with trying to get employees to delete videos and attempted to delete Mar-a-Lago security footage sought by the grand jury investigating the mishandling of government records,” Levin said.
“I want to get into that in a second, but before I do, I want you to look at this chart to demonstrate to you that when Merrick Garland said we’re going to have a special counsel, the purpose of a special counsel is to have a prosecutor who is outside main justice, to bring in fresh faces, fresh blood so you don’t have a conflict of interest or an appearance of a conflict of interest,” Levin continued.
“And I want to get into this, who is Jack Smith? He was chief of the Public Integrity Section from 2010 to 2015. Who did you report to ultimately? Eric Holder, and you’re going to see Eric Holder has a lot to do with a lot of the people who are now involved in hunting down Donald Trump. Smith was part of the failed — ultimately — prosecutions of Governor McDonnell, of Senator Menendez, of Senator Edwards,” he added.
“He worked with FBI Director James Comey as head of the Public Integrity Section. He worked with FBI general counsel Andrew Weissmann, who you’re quite familiar with as head of the Public Integrity Section. Does he sound like a man who is independent from the Department of Justice? Does it sound like a man who is independent from the Democratic Party?” Levin asked.
Levin declared: “Out of all the people they could have chosen in America, they go to The Hague to bring back Smith because he’s a hitman. These people coming out of main justice, the U.S. Attorney’s office, mostly Democrats, Democrat operatives, they’ve known each other for decades. So have many of the judges who are appointed. They come out of main justice and so forth and so on. This is why Republicans don’t have a chance when they’re caught up in something involving the Department of Justice, the U.S. attorney’s office in the District of Columbia, they don’t have a chance.”
Transcript as follows:
First we had Judge Howell, who has since retired. Before she retired, the day she retired, she issued a very controversial decision, because Jack Smith wanted to get the information and notes of Donald Trump’s lawyer involved in the documents case.
But we do know that she’s ruled against Trump every step of the way, and ruled for Smith and his predecessor every step of the way. She has since retired.
She was replaced with Chief Judge James Boasberg. Who appointed him? Obama. He used to work in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Washington, too.
There is another judge, Judge Rudolph Contreras, Obama appointee. He worked in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Washington, D.C. at one point.
Judge Christopher Cooper, Obama judge. He worked in the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, DC.
Judge Tanya Chutkan, an Obama judge. She was in the D.C. public defender office, that is in Washington.
Judge Randolph Moss, he worked at the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington appointed by Obama.
Judge Amit Mehta worked in the D.C. public defender office, appointed by Obama.
You have Judge Timothy Kelly, appointed by Trump, but Kelly worked in the U.S. Attorney’s office. They worked in the Public Integrity Section at the Department of Justice. And that’s important, because there’s this relationship, professional relationship, social relationship, I almost don’t care who appoints who that exists in the swamp.
We have Judge Trevor McFadden, who was in the U.S. Attorney’s office at main justice, also, a Trump appointee.
We have Judge Dabney Friedrich, was at the U.S. Sentencing Commission, main justice under Bush appointed by Trump.
We have Judge Nichols. I don’t know much about Judge Nichols. Then we have Judges Gia M. Cobb, public defender’s office in D.C., appointed by Biden; Judge Ana Reyes, appointed by Biden.
So you have 10 of the 12 judges in the D.C. Circuit area, in the D.C. court who worked at main justice. Eight of the 12 were appointed by Obama or Biden. The chief judge was appointed by Obama, the prior chief judge was appointed by Obama.
The grand jury is made up of citizens from the District of Columbia, five percent of whom voted for Donald Trump.
This is why the grand jury was used in Washington, D.C. to take out Trump. This is why all those original charges were brought by the grand jury in Washington, D.C. because where they were supposed to go and where this grand jury was supposed to be working in investigating all these months, was in Florida.
