If you take a swing at the King, you’d better not miss.
And Special Counsel Jack Smith (made up name?) has missed a lot in his career.
In fact, he has a history of losses and failures, especially when he’s forced to operate within the bounds of the U.S. Constitution.
So it’s not a big surprise that we just learned a primary aspect of the Trump Defense will be “getting under the hood” of the Special Counsel and flipping the tables by going after HIM for Prosecutorial Misconduct.
Here’s CBS’s Catherine Herridge from this morning explaining more:

Is that why he’s a former Trump attorney?
Can’t be attorney and witness, can you?
Did he drop out to become the key witness?
Can’t believe CBS allowed this to air:
How did this get past CBS News censors.

Trump’s legal team is preparing to file a motion to dismiss Special Counsel Jack Smith’s case citing prosecutorial misconduct.
Trump’s lawyers will ask Judge Aileen Cannon to unseal Obama-appointed Judge Beryl Howell’s order obliterating Trump’s attorney-client privilege with his lawyer Eric Corcoran.
Judge Beryl Howell, an Obama appointee, was first assigned to oversee Jack Smith’s classified documents case and January 6 case against Trump.
In fact, Judge Howell previously ordered Trump’s lawyer Evan Corcoran to testify before a grand jury in special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into classified documents stored at Mar-a-Lago.
Judge Beryl Howell
Judge Howell flipped Trump’s own lawyer Eric Corcoran into a witness when she obliterated Trump’s attorney client privilege in a ruling.
Howell ruled DOJ prosecutors ‘met the threshold for the crime-fraud exception’ for Trump’s attorney.
Jack Smith used Eric Corcoran’s notes against Trump.
