Could this be a coincidence? I think not.
Smith was given a deadline of 9 days to respond to Luna’s inquiry, but rather than responding something else happened.
The special prosecutor’s case was withdrawn from the court docket altogether, and speculation is now running rampant as to why the case was removed.
I can’t be the only one thinking that Smith removed the case due to this small amount of pressure applied by Luna.
This begs the question: is Jack Smith’s entire case just a paper tiger? Anna Paulina Luna is great, don’t get me wrong, but she isn’t exactly a seasoned politician, nor is she a senior-level lawmaker.
If Smith’s case was, indeed, removed from the docket due to Luna’s inquiry, imagine what could happen if the GOP grew a pair and applied some serious pressure. Luna announced on Thursday:
Within hours of my office sending a letter asking Jack Smith to produce information regarding his investigation, his case against Trump is removed from the docket. Jack Smith owes the American people and Congress answers. https://t.co/zGvI2UJ6Q2 pic.twitter.com/dFw05ELmNR

Earlier today, my office sent a letter asking Jack Smith to produce information about his investigation into President Trump. We have just found out that his case has been removed from the DC docket.

According to Newsweek:
Its removal from the court calendar signals that the case will likely not begin for several more months, pushing it closer to the presidential election in November.
The Washington D.C Court of Appeals is now considering the case and it will likely go to the U.S Supreme Court after that.
Below is the letter Rep. Anna Paulina Luna sent to Jack Smith demanding answers regarding his appointment and the overall legitimacy of his investigation:
Even Vox, perhaps the most far-left mainstream news outlet, is now admitting:
It’s not certain that even multiple Trump convictions would be the game-changer in the polls Democrats hoped for.
But getting a verdict before November 5 is the only way we’d ever find out. (As to whether Trump might be sentenced to prison, we can’t know that until an actual trial takes place.)
So Election Day could come and go with most of Trump’s legal jeopardy unresolved — and, if he wins, some of those delays could become permanent, since he’d almost surely shut down the federal investigations targeting him.
