Jack Smith was trying to deliver a game-changing conviction of Donald Trump before the election.

Now he’s watching his scheme to save Joe Biden collapse.

And Jack Smith is facing one nightmare scenario that left him scared as hell. 

Jack Smith’s case shattered after Supreme Court setback

The Supreme Court sent Special Counsel Jack Smith back to the drawing board in his witch hunt against former President Donald Trump.

A 6-3 decision by the high court found that former Presidents have “at least presumptive immunity” from criminal prosecutions for their “official acts.”

The Supreme Court’s ruling left D.C. District Court Judge Tonya Chutkan to determine what actions taken by Trump in Smith’s January 6 case are considered official acts.

Figuring out that means that Smith could lose part of his indictment against the former President.

And it means another delay in the case, which will almost certainly push the start of the trial past Election Day.

Judge Chutkan’s ruling on what is or isn’t an official act can be appealed based on the Supreme Court ruling.

The Supreme Court delivered another blow to Smith’s case and hundreds of other January 6 cases in the Fischer v. United States case.

That ruling shut down the Justice Department from stretching the law by using a statute passed after the collapse of energy company Enron to charge Trump and others with obstructing an official proceeding. 

Trump faced a charge of obstructing an official proceeding and conspiracy to obstruct Smith’s four-count indictment against him for January 6.

Federal prosecutors tried to argue that the law relating to the destruction of corporate documents covered the alleged interruption of Congress certifying the Electoral College vote.

Jack Smith and Fani Willis’ cases are in shamble after Supreme Court ruling

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ case against Trump for contesting the results of Georgia’s 2020 Election is also in jeopardy after the Supreme Court’s Presidential immunity ruling.

Heritage Foundation Vice President John Malcolm – a former federal prosecutor – argued that it’s “very unclear” that Smith or Willis has a case left against Trump.

“Judge Tanya Chutkan certainly has her work cut out for her,” Malcolm explained. 

“As to the immunity decision, the Court essentially ordered Chutkan to dismiss all charges pertaining to Trump’s conversations with Justice Department officials, and made clear that he would also enjoy immunity for any actions he undertook while in office that were within the ‘outer perimeter’ of his authority as president,” Malcolm continued.

Trump would be shielded from criminal prosecution for official acts in state court as well.

Democrats were hoping that lawfare would be their ace in the hold for the election.

Now, they’re facing the strong possibility that Trump will never be tried in his other criminal cases before November.
