Matt Gaetz Reveals Bold Plan to Protect Trump from Jack Smith’s Political Witch Hunt

Republican Matt Gaetz has outlined his bold plan to protect and counter the political attacks and harassment of former President Donald Trump while exposing Democrat abuses.

The Florida congressman challenged his caucus to take action against the constant political attacks against Trump in the form of indictments.

Gaetz vowed to call special counsel Jack Smith to account while at the same time offering Trump immunity by having him testify before Congress as a whistleblower.

“I’m worried that too many of my Republican colleagues in Congress are infected with the same loser mentality that infected Congress in the early days of the Mueller investigation,” Gaetz wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter).

“This isn’t complicated. If House Republicans take action, Jack Smith could be the first prosecutor to bring a case while under criminal contempt himself. [Attorney General] Merrick Garland could be subject to impeachment if he refuses to enforce that criminal contempt,” he said.

“Speaker [Kevin] McCarthy could set up a Select Committee tomorrow, bring President Trump in for testimony, and grant him immunity,” Gaetz added.

The congressman revealed his plan during an appearance on “The Charlie Kirk Show.”

“Here’s what we ought to do, and we shouldn’t make it that complicated,” Gaetz told Kirk.

“First, we should tell Jack Smith that he has to show up and give a transcribed interview to the House Judiciary Committee in the next 15 days.

“If he doesn’t do that, we should issue a subpoena. If he ignores the subpoena, we should hold him in criminal contempt of Congress. And if Merrick Garland won’t enforce that criminal contempt, then he subjects himself to an impeachment.”

“Simultaneous to that, you can actually bring Trump in to give testimony to the Congress and in doing so immunize him,” Gaetz said.

“You have to think about it almost like whistleblower protections — Trump, the ultimate whistleblower, potentially the beneficiary of congressional immunity.”

Matt Gaetz grounded his proposal in federal law, saying that the House can do what he suggests under 18 US Codes 6002 and 6005 and protect Trump from further political attacks.

The Republican said his plan is “never something you typically think of as a first step, but in this case, I think we misunderstand the fight that we are in. Right now, you have the Department of Justice functioning as the enforcement wing of the Democratic Party.”

“I think that if Congress just accepts this premise that it’s an ongoing matter and thus we shouldn’t be involved, then you underscore the legitimacy of that very matter,” Gaetz warned.

However, Gaetz acknowledged that he is “the minority of the majority.”

“Most Republicans in Congress just think we ought to throw our hands in the air and allow the chips to fall where they may. I think that is a tremendous disservice to the Constitution when we are facing an election interference operation, not a legitimate prosecution,” he said.

Kirk appeared intrigued by the proposal, writing on X:

“Congressman [Matt Gaetz] has a BOLD plan he believes could immunize Donald Trump from Jack Smith’s politically weaponized crusade: Bring Trump in to testify before the House as a whistleblower, thereby triggering certain preexisting immunity protections.”

“Will it work? No idea,” Kirk said. “But we must reject the premise that the DOJ’s political persecution of Donald Trump is somehow legitimate. All options should be on the table.”

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
