DEEP STATE: Biden Staffers Quietly Met With Special Counsel Jack Smith Before Trump Indictment
The Daily Knight
Suspicious timing of meetings suggests political coordination between Smith's office and Biden White House.
The White House Counsels office met with a top aide to Special Counsel Jack Smith only weeks before he brought charges against former President Donald Trump for allegedly mishandling classified documents.
The revelation raises major concerns about coordinated efforts to between the Biden administration and Justice Department prosecutors to take down Biden’s main political opponent amid the 2024 election race.
The New York Post reports:
Jay Bratt, who joined the special counsel team in November 2022, shortly after it was formed, took a meeting in the White House on March 31, 2023, with Caroline Saba, deputy chief of staff for the White House counsel’s office, White House visitor logs show.
They were joined in the 10 a.m. meeting by Danielle Ray, an FBI agent in the Washington field office.
Nine weeks later, Trump was indicted by Smith’s office on June 8, 2023.
Bratt, 63, also met with Saba at the White House in November 2021, when Trump was mired in negotiations with the National Archives, who were demanding the return of presidential records from his Mar-a-Lago estate before a formal investigation had not yet been opened.
Notably, Bratt was also tied to the FBI’s raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Aug. 2022, having visited the compound weeks earlier and personally interacted with Trump while inspecting storage facilities at the property.
Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel, confirmed the meeting took place but insisted Bratt was at the White House for a “case-related interview” without elaborating.
“There is no legitimate purpose for a line [DOJ] guy to be meeting with the White House except if it’s coordinated by the highest levels,” said former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was recently also indicted by Fulton County DA Fani Willis for seeking to get to the bottom of the 2020 election.
“What’s happening is they have trashed every ethical rule that exists and they have created a state police. It is a Biden state prosecutor and a Biden state police,” he added.
George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley likewise called the purpose of the meeting into question, noting it “raises obvious concerns about visits to the White House after [Bratt] began his work with the special counsel.”
“There is no reason why the Justice Department should not be able to confirm whether this meeting was related to the ongoing investigation or concerns some other matter,” he said.
This is what real election interference looks like.
