It’s a “sign of desperation” that former President Donald Trump is attacking the spouse of the particular prosecutor appointed to supervise two federal prison investigations into his actions, a former federal prosecutor mentioned.
In an evaluation posted on his YouTube channel Saturday, Glenn Kirschner slammed Trump for his “inane accusations” towards veteran prosecutor Jack Smith, whom Attorney General Merrick Garland not too long ago appointed to supervise the probes into Trump’s dealing with of labeled paperwork and his efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
Trump and his allies have been up in arms that Smith’s spouse, documentary filmmaker Katy Chevigny, labored as a producer on Michelle Obama’s “Becoming,” and, in response to FEC filings, donated $2,000 to President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential marketing campaign. In a Truth Social put up final week, Trump used that data as supposed proof to assist his persistent claims that the Justice Department is being weaponized towards him, calling Smith a “hard-line Radical Left Special Counsel.”
Trump is performing determined, Kirschner argued, as a result of he “finally knows that accountability is coming for him.”
He additionally predicted that Trump’s technique would flop. “Think about it. If the target of an investigation could create a conflict by attacking the prosecutor’s spouse, and then maybe somehow convincing people that the prosecutor’s gotta go, well, wouldn’t that just encourage guys like Donald Trump to go after the prosecutor’s spouse? Or family member? None of this will work.”
