Jack Smith Preparing to Hit Trump with 45 Additional Charges as Back-Up Plan

Jack Smith is preparing to hit President Trump with 45 additional charges if Judge Aileen Cannon delays or thwarts the classified documents case, according to a leak.

The additional charges, reported as a “backup plan,” are expected to come from Jack Smith “in the coming weeks.”

Trump was recently indicted on 37 federal counts in a Florida court.

The special counsel’s prosecutors are preparing a “superseding indictment,” a separate set of charges against the 45th president in the Southern District of Florida.

Jack Smith’s prosecutors may also bring more charges against Trump in a different venue if they feel Judge Aileen Cannon is being too fair with Trump.

Trump was charged with 31 counts of willful retention of national defense information and six other process crimes stemming from conversations with his lawyer.

However, Smith did not charge Trump with disseminating national defense information related to documents stored at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club.

According to the indictment, Trump “showed and described a “plan of attack” which Trump said was prepared for him by the DoD and a senior military official,” according to an audio-recorded meeting with a reporter and two staffers.

Trump slammed the claims in the federal indictment that he showed a secret document to other people, saying there were “articles.”

During a Monday interview on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Trump blasted the claims in the indictment saying, “These were newspaper stories, magazine stories, and articles.”

He added that while he couldn’t declassify things while he was out of office, “There was nothing to declassify.”

“It wasn’t a document. I had lots of paper. I had copies of newspaper articles. I had copies of magazines,” Trump said.

The Independent reported:

The Department of Justice is prepared to seek indictments against multiple figures in former president Donald Trump’s orbit and may yet bring additional charges against the ex-president in the coming weeks, The Independent has learned.

According to sources familiar with the matter, the department has made preparations to bring what is known as a “superseding indictment” — a second set of charges against an already-indicted defendant that could include more serious crimes — against the ex-president in the Southern District of Florida.

But prosecutors may also choose to bring additional charges against Mr. Trump in a different venue, depending on how they feel the case they have brought against him is proceeding.

The Independent understands that prosecutors’ decision on whether to seek additional charges from a grand jury — and where to seek them — will depend in part on whether they feel the Trump-appointed district judge overseeing the case against him in the Southern District of Florida, Aileen Cannon, is giving undue deference to the twice-impeached, now twice-indicted former president.
