House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan is accusing the office of special council Jack Smith, through his top aid Jay Bratt, of bribing a former Trump employee in order to get an indictment of the former President just in time to interfere with the 2024 election. He is also accusing the Attorney General, Merrick Farland, and White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients with colluding with Smith in order to get an indictment timed to offset the charges being levied at Joe Biden and his crack-smoking, sex-trafficking son Hunter Biden.
From the Loyal Conservatives: According to the White House visitor logs, Jay Bratt, Smith’s top aide, met with Caroline Seba, deputy chief of staff for the White House counsel’s office, on March 31. The New York Post initially reported this meeting. Danielle Ray, an FBI agent from the Washington, D.C. field office, was also present at the meeting alongside Bratt and Seba.
A spokesperson for the special counsel indicated that Bratt’s presence was related to a “case-related interview,” the FBI declined to comment on the matter. According to Jordan’s letter, Bratt had additional meetings with the White House. One was with an advisor to Ron Klain, the Chief of Staff, in September 2021, and the other involved Biden administration officials discussing “national security” two months later.
Now, Jordan is requesting the White House turn over all documents that could explain the nature of those White House visits, as well as all communications between the Executive Office of the President and the Department of Justice involving Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigations.
Jordan accused Bratt of engaging in improper conduct by threatening a lawyer of a Trump employee and offering him favorable treatment in exchange for cooperation with the witch hunt (I mean investigation, no, I mean witch hunt.
More from the Loyal Conservatives: Jordan’s letter underscored the concern that Smith’s investigation and prosecution might lack impartiality and fairness due to these actions. In addition to the classified documents case, Smith indicted Trump for alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, citing the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot as a significant factor.
