Trump vows to fire Special Counsel Jack Smith if elected in 2024

Former President Donald Trump, who continues to lead in all 2024 GOP nomination polls, has rolled out what some of his first plans include should he win the White House next year. 

According to The Washington Times, near the top of the list is the firing of Special Counsel Jack Smith, who hit Trump with a federal indictment earlier this year in the classified documents investigation.

In a recent interview with Breitbart, the former president held nothing back when asked about Smith's fate, should Trump become the next president.

"I wouldn’t keep him," Trump said, bluntly.

The former president added, "Jack Smith? Why would I keep him? He is — look, he’s gone after other people. He’s been overturned unanimously in the Supreme Court. He’s destroyed a lot of lives. Lives have been destroyed. He’s destroyed people, he’s destroyed lives."

Trump, early on, nicknamed Smith "Deranged Jack Smith," and repeated the descriptor in his interview with Breitbart.

"This is a guy — he’s a wild man. I call him deranged," Trump said.

The former president continued, "What he’s done is just horrible," he said of Smith's prosecutorial decisions. "The abuse of power — it is prosecutorial misconduct."

Smith made headlines once again this week after his office announced additional charges against Trump in the classified documents probe, including additional charges for his valet, and charges against a third defendant.

Trump could see additional indictments, including federal and state. The Washington Times noted:

Meanwhile, the former president’s lawyers wrapped up a meeting on Thursday with federal prosecutors over a possible third stack of indictments against Mr. Trump for his involvement in attempting to overturn the 2020 election and events that lead up to the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

The potential state-level indictment would stem from an ongoing investigation in Georgia over the 2022 election results.

Only time will tell if Trump's legal battles continue to pile up, but even at this point, it has barely made a dent in his quest to secure the Republican nomination and eventually the White House, at least according to the polls and fundraising efforts.
