The House Judiciary Committee has questions about certain meetings with the White House and Jack Smith's legal team. Was there a coordinated effort between the Justice Department and the White House to investigate and prosecute President Biden’s political opponents?
Tuesday, the House Judiciary Committee demanded the Biden administration explain why a prosecutor for special counsel Jack Smith visited the West Wing.
Jim Jordan, who heads the Judiciary Committee sent a letter to the Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers as to why there is the appearance that Smith is not running an impartial and unprejudiced investigation and prosecution of former President Trump.
"The Committee on the Judiciary is continuing its oversight of the Biden Justice Department’s commitment to impartial justice and its handling of a special counsel investigation against President Biden’s chief opponent in the upcoming presidential election. According to recent reporting, Jay Bratt—a Department of Justice employee and top aide to Special Counsel Jack Smith—met with White House officials multiple times, just weeks before Mr. Smith indicted former President Donald Trump. This new information raises serious concerns regarding the potential for a coordinated effort between the Department and the White House to investigate and prosecute President Biden’s political opponents."
"In September 2021, Mr. Bratt reportedly met with an advisor to the White House Chief of Staff. Two months later, in November 2021, Mr. Bratt again went to the White House to meet with Administration officials. During this same period, President Trump’s lawyers were negotiating with the National Archives about presidential records from his tenure in office. According to reporting, Mr. Bratt’s 2021 White House meetings related to “national security.” Subsequently, on March 31, 2023, just nine weeks prior to Mr. Smith’s indictment of President Trump, Mr. Bratt met with the White House Counsel’s Office Deputy Chief of Staff Caroline Saba and FBI Special Agent Danielle Ray for a “case-related interview.”
Bratt, 63, also met with Saba in November 2021 at the White House, as Trump was in talks with the National Archives about the return of presidential records from his Palm Beach estate.
These findings give the public reason to question the motives of Jack Smith as well as the Biden administration regarding the prosecution of former President Trump for documents that this administration claims Trump should not have access to. President Trump has asserted multiple times he was negotiating with the National Archives for the return of Presidential records, however, the media, has made claims otherwise.
