Special Counsel Jack Smith Just Got Bad News

Published on

By cutting off his funding, Florida Republican Representative Matt Gaetz aims to prevent the special counsel from pursuing a second federal indictment against former President Donald Trump.

Trump announced on Tuesday that he expects to be indicted by special counsel Jack Smith, who is investigating whether anyone “unlawfully interfered with the transfer of power” following the 2020 presidential election and on January 6, 2021 in particular.

Smith obtained an indictment against Trump alleging him of mishandling classified documents last month.

“I will be introducing legislation to DEFUND Jack Smith’s witch hunt against President Trump,” tweeted Gaetz on Tuesday. “They are attacking our democracy and engaging in election interference right now. The United States Congress has the capability to stop this election interference, and we must act immediately!”

“In the coming hours, the coming days, I will be introducing legislation under my name in the House of Representatives as a freestanding bill to defund the Jack Smith investigation,” Gaetz said in a video that accompanied his post.

“We have to stop sending money to this.”

Smith should not have access to federal funding, according to the concise bill introduced by Gaetz.

Gaetz’s call to slash funding for Smith follows Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s proposal to do the same last month.

“This morning, I’m writing an appropriations rider to DEFUND Special Counsel Jack Smith’s office and entire investigation. I will not vote for ANY appropriations bill to fund the weaponization of government. I hope every one of my Republican colleagues will join me,” she tweeted.

“We have to use the power of appropriations to stop the weaponization of government,” she wrote in another tweet. “Where are the investigations into true criminals like Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton?”
