Jack Smith to Use Trump’s Cellphone Data in Election Trial

Special counsel Jack Smith announced plans to use President Donald Trump’s White House cellphone and Twitter data in the forthcoming election trial.

On Monday, Smith outlined his intention to call up to three expert witnesses to testify in the case against Trump.

The filing shows how prosecutors plan to use data obtained under warrant from X about Trump’s account, including location data.

“The government has provided its Notice of Expert Witnesses to the defendant,” reads the filing submitted to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, outlining each expert’s expertise and expected testimony.

According to the filing, the ‘experts’ will use the data to show how President Trump used his phones “throughout the post-election period” and on Jan. 6, 2021.

Politico noted, “While Smith described in the filing using the data to view images, websites, and locations, it’s unclear if he accessed the substance of Trump’s communications or if anything was shielded due to executive privilege or other limits.”

As The Epoch Times reported, Referred to as Expert 1, Expert 2, and Expert 3, the experts are anticipated to “aid the jury” in understanding the data and how it is visually presented on a map after being extracted from the White House phones of President Trump.

This data is expected to be critical in “understanding the movements of individuals toward the Capitol area during and after the defendant’s speech at the Ellipse.”

But the move may fall short of directly implicating Trump, whose phones were routinely managed by others, including Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino.

According to documents, a federal judge ordered Twitter to hand over mountains of Trump’s account data to Smith earlier this year.

The data included direct messages, other direct messages, draft posts, and locations.

Lawyers for Twitter described some of the data as “confidential communications.”

The first witness is expected to provide their analysis about using ArcGIS (Geographic Information Systems) software to plan the movements of Trump supporters from the Ellipse “to an area encompassing the United States Capitol building.”

Smith is trying to bypass the appeals court and have the Supreme Court take up the matter directly.

“This case presents a fundamental question at the heart of our democracy: whether a former President is absolutely immune from federal prosecution for crimes committed while in office or is constitutionally protected from federal prosecution when he has been impeached but not convicted before the criminal proceedings begin,” prosecutors wrote.

Trump’s presidential campaign slammed Smith for trying to go around the appeals court.

“There is absolutely no reason to rush this sham to trial except to injure President Trump and tens of millions of his supporters. “

The campaign said in a statement:

“President Trump will continue to fight for Justice and oppose these authoritarian tactics.”

Next year, The court is scheduled to meet privately on Jan. 5, 2024.

However, it needs to be clarified whether the justices would convene sooner following Smith’s request.
