(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – On Tuesday, Representative Matt Gaetz, R-Florida, sent a letter to U.S. AG Merrick Garland demanding all of the names of the prosecutors working in the office of special counsel Jack Smith, who is handling the Department of Justice’s cases against former President Donald Trump. In the letter, Gaetz points out that, according to recent information, one of the prosecutors on Smith’s team had worked for President Biden’s 2020 campaign and faced misconduct allegations in 2009.
On that same day, Trump was scheduled to appear before a federal court in Miami, where he pleaded not guilty on all 37 counts relating to Smith’s investigation into his alleged mishandling of classified documents. The charges against Trump range, but they include willful retention of national defense information, conspiring to obstruct justice, and making false statements.
In his letter, Gaetz alleges that Smith’s work in the past has been “highly irregular” but that it is also of “extraordinary public concern.” This is why he was requesting that all information about the office’s structure be released to the public. Gaetz gave Smith until July 7 to abide by the request and provide “all staff rosters, phone lists,” and other documents and records that are currently in the custody of the Justice Department and relate to all employees that were hired or are employed in Smith’s office.
Gaetz argued that there are no grounds to keep a “simple staff list” from both Congress and the general public, especially as one of Smith’s deputies, Karen Gilbert, had to resign in 2002 from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida’s narcotics section following misconduct allegations.
