Trump demands Supreme Court 'intercede' in latest Jack Smith indictment

Former President Donald Trump was again charged by Special Counsel Jack Smith, this time over his alleged actions in attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election. 

According to the Daily Caller, on Friday the former president insisted that the U.S. Supreme Court "must intercede" in the case brought against him, writing off the charges as yet another example of the Justice Department's perceived attempt to run an "election interference" campaign to disrupt his chances of winning in 2024.

As a result, Trump believes the high court needs to step in and do something about the seemingly never-ending indictments.

The 45th president made his demands clear in a recent Truth Social post, taking aim at Smith and President Joe Biden, his likely 2024 political opponent.

"CRAZY! My political opponent has hit me with a barrage of weak lawsuits, including D.A., A.G., and others, which require massive amounts of my time & money to adjudicate," Trump wrote.

Trump also rightfully argued that he believes Biden's DOJ is using the tactic to drain his campaign war chest ahead of the election, forcing Trump to spend more on legal costs than his campaign, which would obviously hinder any candidate's campaign.

"Resources that would have gone into Ads and Rallies, will now have to be spent fighting these Radical Left Thugs in numerous courts throughout the Country," Trump continued.

He added, "I am leading in all Polls, including against Crooked Joe, but this is not a level playing field. It is Election Interference, & the Supreme Court must intercede. MAGA!"

Legal scholars tend to side with Trump on this particular matter, regarding the most recent indictment, including Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz.

"I think he may lose in the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, but he will probably win in the United States Supreme Court, if they grant review," Dershowitz said during a recent Fox News interview.

The professor added, "And they should grant review. When you have the president of the United States’ people going after his opponent in a political election, it has to be beyond reproach. It has to be without any problem. It has to be the strongest case in history. This doesn’t meet this standard."

Trump has been able to leverage the indictments and extreme press coverage to boost his fundraising efforts for the 2024 campaign, although he would undoubtedly have much more if he didn't have such massive, mountain legal costs.

Many have suggested a hypothetical situation in which Trump could be convicted, sentenced to prison, still win the election and pardon himself on Day One. Only time will tell.
