    Top Investigator in Trump Case Has Disturbing Connections to a Biden Donor and a Film About Obama

    Published on

    U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland startled the nation by appointing a special counsel to supervise two DOJ-led criminal investigations involving former President Donald Trump, including the Mar-a-Lago secret materials scandal and the January 6 Capitol intrusion.

    “Based on recent developments, including the former president’s announcement that he is a candidate for president in the next election, and the sitting president’s stated intention to be a candidate as well, I have concluded that it is in the public interest to appoint a special counsel,” Garland said in a statement, naming Jack Smith as the special counsel who will oversee the investigations.

    While Smith is usually regarded as a seasoned, impartial prosecutor who has handled multiple high-profile cases against both Democrats and Republicans, the same may not be said of his wife, a filmmaker who appears to have apparent ideological links.

    According to the New York Post, Smith’s wife, Katy Chevigny, is credited as a “producer” for a Netflix documentary named “Becoming” that will premiere in 2020. The documentary focuses on former first lady Michelle Obama.

    The fact that Chevigny contributed $2,000 to President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign in the same year further complicates matters, especially in the court of public opinion.

    The news of Chevigny’s political donation to the Biden campaign and her work on the Michelle Obama film sparked intense debate on social media as to whether it creates a conflict of interest for her husband’s investigation into Trump, given that Trump has a strong likelihood of becoming Biden’s political opponent in 2024.

    Monday, Georgia Republican Representative Andrew Clyde criticized the Justice Department.

    “You just can’t make this stuff up. Katy Chevigny, wife of Jack Smith—the special counsel appointed by DOJ to go after President Trump, donated to Joe Biden’s campaign and produced Michelle Obama’s documentary. America cannot stand with a corrupt, two-tiered justice system,” Clyde tweeted.

    Others concurred, including Charlie Kirk, the founder and president of Turning Point USA.

    “Of course the wife of Jack Smith, the special counsel appointed by Merrick Garland to investigate President Trump, was one of the producers of the Michelle Obama documentary. But don’t worry guys, the DOJ has not been weaponized against conservatives. Everything is fine!” Kirk tweeted Monday.

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    Others argued that Chevigny is entitled to her career, separate from her husband’s investigation, and cited Ginni Thomas, the wife of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, for partaking in conservative causes.

    “He prosecuted New York Assembly Speaker (Dem) Sheldon Silver. He also prosecuted Democratic VP candidate John Edwards. But sure, let’s talk about his unproven bias because of his wife’s career. Right after we investigate Ginni Thomas and her husband Clarence,” one Twitter user wrote in response to Kirk’s post. CONTINUE READING…
