Special Counsel Jack Smith, one of the weapons in the hands of a corrupt Justice Department being run by progressive deep state operatives looking to take former President Donald Trump out of the 2024 presidential election, was handed a pretty significant defeat at the hands of the Supreme Court as they rejected his request on Friday to quickly consider an important question concerning his election interference case without first allowing the lower court an opportunity to weigh in on things first.
You just know that put a significant damper on his Christmas celebration. It’s like getting a lump of coal in your stocking, which is what Smith has earned for being on the naughty list by attacking not only Trump, but every American across the country.
The Daily Caller said:
Smith asked the justices last week to hear former President Donald Trump’s bid to have his election interference case dismissed based on presidential immunity without allowing the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to first consider the issue. In an unsigned order Friday, the justices shot down his request.
District Judge Tanya Chutkan declined to dismiss Trump’s case Dec. 1 in a decision that said the presidency “does not confer a lifelong ‘get-out-of-jail-free’ pass.” Trump then appealed her decision to the D.C. Circuit.
The Supreme Court’s decision puts an obstacle in the way of Smith, who has been making every effort to salvage Trump’s scheduled March 4 trial date. Chutkan paused proceedings in Trump’s case pending his appeal of the immunity question.
The legal team representing the former president informed justices in a filing that was turned in on Wednesday that they should deny the request from Smith due his “partisan motivation” and said they should not “rush to decide the issues with reckless abandon,” which, let’s be honest, is what Smith is really asking them to do. We’re talking about a decision, a ruling, that could have a significant role on elections in the future, thus care absolutely needs to be taken.

“This Court’s ordinary review procedures will allow the D.C. Circuit to address this appeal in the first instance, thus granting this Court the benefit of an appellate court’s prior consideration of these historic topics and performing the traditional winnowing function that this Court has long preferred,” Trump’s lawyers stated on Wednesday.
The former president’s attorneys went on to say that Smith “confuses the public interest with a partisan interest of his superior, President Biden.”
“Further, the Special Counsel’s insistence that this Court decide the immunity question ‘during its current Term,’ reflects the evident desire to schedule President Trump’s potential trial during the summer of 2024— at the height of the election season,” they said.
Oral arguments at the Circuit Court located in our nation’s capital are currently scheduled for Jan. 9, 2024.
Have you ever seen a president more under fire than Trump? The radical left in the United States seems to constantly be on the warpath against him, looking for any excuse possible to persecute him — and also prosecute him — in hopes they will remove him from being able to run for commander-in-chief.
They want to limit the choices of the American people in order to ensure they keep power. That’s pretty nefarious.
