BREAKING: Jack Smith THREATENS Judge In Trump Case

Special Counsel Jack Smith issued a veiled threat to Judge Aileen Cannon in response to her jury instructions.

Last month, Judge Aileen Cannon issued a jury instruction order in Jack Smith’s classified documents case and the leftist legal analysts went apocalyptic.

Cannon gave two options for jury instructions.

The first option is:

In a prosecution of a former president for allegedly retaining documents in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 793(e), a jury is permitted to examine a record retained by a former president in his/her personal possession at the end of his/her presidency and make a factual finding as to whether the government has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that it is personal or presidential using the definitions set forth in the Presidential Records Act (PRA).

The second option is:

A president has sole authority under the PRA to categorize records as personal or presidential during his/her presidency. Neither a court nor a jury is permitted to make or review such a categorization decision. Although there is no formal means in the PRA by which a president is to make that categorization, an outgoing president’s decision to exclude what he/she considers to be personal records from presidential records transmitted to the National Archives and Records Administration constitutes a president’s categorization of those records as personal under the PRA.

“Cannon seems inclined to push the case to trial but is basically asking if she can stack the deck so Trump wins,” CNN legal analyst Norm Eisen said.

MSNBC’s legal reporter Jordan Rubin responded with “Judge Aileen Cannon is at it again.”

Jordan Rubin said Cannon is “apparently contemplating instructions that could effectively win Trump’s case for him…”

A J6 defense attorney told investigative reporter Julie Kelly that if Cannon gives these jury instructions, Jack Smith is “f*cked.”

Jack Smith responded to Cannon’s jury instruction order with a veiled threat: Do things his way or he’s going to seek “mandamus” at the appellate court so they can tell her what to do with the jury instructions!

Jack Smith is completely hysterical because he has virtually no control over Judge Cannon’s final jury instructions.

Now Jack Smith is threatening to take the jury instruction fight to the appellate court.

Via Julie Kelly: Smith demanded that Cannon rule now on jury instructions (she doesn’t have to) or dismiss the counts so he can appeal. If she doesn’t, he might seek “mandamus” at appellate court–asking the 11th Circuit to tell Cannon what to do in the case.

Jack Smith last year charged Trump with 31 counts under the Espionage Act related to presidential records lawfully stored at Mar-a-Lago.

Trump’s attorneys recently filed a flurry of motions to dismiss Jack Smith’s classified docs case.
