Joe Biden’s prosecutors in the latest case against President Trump are being questioned after it was revealed that at least one member donated to Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign. This was discovered by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., who is now demanding answers.
Gaetz sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland regarding this information on the day of President Trump’s arraignment. He is specifically concerned about special counsel Jack Smith’s team.
Breitbart reported that Karen Gilbert, who has not only been federally published for unlawfully recording others during a legal battle, is part of Smith’s team as a lead prosecutor. She also reportedly donated to the Biden campaign as well as the Democratic National Committee. This is a direct conflict of interest being that President Trump is Biden’s main opponent in the upcoming 2024 election.
In light of this information, Gaetz has given Garland until July 7 to present “all staff rosters, phone lists, or similar records, within the custody or control of the Department of Justice, depicting all employees hired by or detailed to the office of Special Counsel Jack Smith,” per Fox News.
Gaetz defended his stance within the letter posted to Fox News, stating:
“While there are innumerable valid legislative purposes for this request, it should be obvious that doing due diligence in vetting an office that has apparently done no vetting of its own personnel, or worse, might affirmatively be seeking to staff with sanctioned lawyers and partisan hatchet-men (and women), is an entirely appropriate purpose and one small reason I am requesting this information.”
President Trump is Biden’s direct competitor in the 2024 election, which has raised concerns regarding potential election interference.
Gaetz defended American voters’ right to support the candidate of their choice by also tweeting, “I STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP!”
