Donald Trump made a legal filing that flips the script on the Democrats

The Democrats are obsessed with stopping Donald Trump. They are throwing the kitchen sink at him.

But Donald Trump has made a legal filing that flips the script on the Democrats in the best way.

This Thursday, leading 2024 presidential candidate Donald Trump made the suggestion that the district court should hold special counsel Jack Smith and other prosecutors in contempt of court for disobeying its order. He said that Smith is using the case as a “leg of the Biden Campaign.”

Anticipating an appeal of her judgment of not dropping the former president’s lawsuit on the basis of presidential immunity, District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan halted proceedings in his 2020 election case on December 13. In a lengthy 15-page petition, Trump’s legal team claimed that Smith’s persistence in submitting papers on the postponed due dates breaches the court’s “clear, straightforward, and unambiguous” stay order.

“In this manner, the prosecutors seek to weaponize the Stay to spread political propaganda, knowing that President Trump would not fully respond because the Court relieved him of the burdens of litigation during the Stay,” Trump’s lawyers allege.

“Worse, the prosecutors have announced their intention to continue this partisan-driven misconduct indefinitely, effectively converting this Court’s docket into an arm of the Biden Campaign.”

According to Trump’s legal team, the prosecutors should explain why they ought not to be held in contempt of court and argued that the prosecutors should withdraw their filings. Additionally, “monetary sanctions in the amount of President Trump’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred in responding to the prosecutors’ improper productions” should be supplied, according to the court’s filing.

As pointed out by Trump’s legal team, the prosecution submitted an “exhibit list” and 4,000 pages of “additional discovery” on December 17 and 18, respectively. For the purpose of “assisting in ensuring that trial proceeds promptly if and when the mandate returns,” the prosecution stated in a filing

Since Trump’s immunity petition put the original March 4 trial date in doubt, Smith has persistently sought to expedite the process. On December 22nd, the Supreme Court denied his motion to review the immunity issue before the lower court had a chance to do so.

According to Trump’s legal team, “unstated, but obvious” is the prosecution’s determination to target the president in an attempt to derail his 2024 presidential campaign.

Oral arguments for Trump’s appeal will be held on January 9th before the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Interestingly, Jack Smith and company seem to be doubling down on their extremely aggressive prosecution angle that has not paid off thus far.

Donald Trump, since being indicted by Jack Smith and the federal government, has only seen his odds of winning the 2024 presidential election skyrocket. If their goal was to prevent him from being able to win a second term as the POTUS in 2024, they are failing spectacularly at this time.

Of course, Donald Trump should by no means consider himself in the clear. His legal team clearly has their work cut out for them as he faces legal attacks from every corner of the nation.

All it takes is a particularly bad set of jurors and an unfair judge to give the Democrats what they ultimately want.

We’ve seen similar scenarios play out in recent weeks as Colorado shocked the nation when their state Supreme Court ruled that Donald Trump would not be allowed to appear on the Republican primary ballot this year.

Maine quickly followed the leader as their state secretary and a few rogue politicians ruled that Trump wouldn’t be allowed to appear on their primary ballots either.

It’s obvious to many Americans what’s going on here. It appears that the only way for Democrats to win in 2024 is to lock up Donald Trump behind prison bars. The smear campaign hasn’t worked for nearly a decade now.
