JUST IN: New SCOTUS Filing Takes Aim At Jack Smith, Smith To Be Declared Illegitimate?

Buckle up everyone, this could end up being a massive development.

According to sources, former Attorney General Edwin Meese, Professor Gary Lawson, and Steven Calabresi have filed a petition with the Supreme Court of the United States targeting ‘Special Counsel’ Jack Smith.

The trio argue that because Smith was directly hired and appointed by Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice, rather than Congress, his entire appointment is illegitimate.

This would mean that every single legal action Smith has undertaken up to this point, including his prosecution of President Trump would be null and void.

That’s right. We are looking at a checkmate move right here against the so-called ‘Special Prosecutor,’ who might turn out to just be another private citizen! Journalist Julie Kelly presented the legal arguments and statutes:

Fox News highlighted the central thesis of the SCOTUS brief filed by former AG Meese and his allies:

“Not clothed in the authority of the federal government, Smith is a modern example of the naked emperor,” the brief states.

“Improperly appointed, he has no more authority to represent the United States in this Court than Bryce Harper, Taylor Swift, or Jeff Bezos,” they argued.

The former Attorney General didn’t spare anyone any quarter. Ed Meese also went after Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis for her unconstitutional prosecution of President Trump.

Just The News provided this statement from Steven Calabresi:

“Unlike a U.S. Attorney, however, private citizen Jack Smith has not been nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate for the particular office of Special Counsel, which he now holds.

“Jack Smith’s appointment to be Special Counsel was unconstitutional, and every action that he has taken since his appointment is now null and void.”
