Here’s what you need to know…

A previous federal prosecutor raised concerns about a purported submission presented by a lawyer representing the ex-president, Donald Trump’s valet. The valet is a co-defendant in the Mar-a-Lago special counsel case. The former prosecutor stated that the accusations could be interpreted as a form of “extortion.”

According to James Trusty, a former head of the Justice Department’s organized crime division, the situations involving both Trump and the allegations against the Biden family by whistleblowers are indicative of significant concerns regarding the current integrity of the Department of Justice.

According to Fox, He pointed to accusations directed at Assistant U.S. Attorney for Delaware, Lesley Wolf, suggesting that she alerted attorneys representing Biden’s sons about potential scrutiny related to a storage unit used by the eldest son.

“On the ‘Life, Liberty & Levin’ show on Sunday, Trusty asserted, “In my book, that’s basically obstruction of justice.”

However, Trusty also mentioned that a recent development in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation regarding the alleged mishandling of classified information at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach could be similarly concerning.

“You had a high-level DOJ official — according to a statement submitted as an officer-to-the-court, to a federal judge — told Stanley Woodward, a defense attorney representing Walt Nauta that it would be a shame, essentially, if he endangered his pending judgeship by not flipping Nauta against President Trump,” Trusty explained.

The incident, initially reported by the UK Guardian, detailed that federal prosecutor Jay Bratt, who leads the counterintelligence and export-control section of the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, raised attention to the fact that Woodward had submitted an application to be evaluated for a federal judge position.

As reported by The Guardian, Woodward had a meeting with prosecutors in Washington in November 2022. The nature of the discussion was not suitable for a phone conversation. The newspaper described the interaction as one in which Bratt implied that Woodward’s pursuit of a judgeship could be seen more favorably if he collaborated against his superior – the ex-president.

“Again, it’s extortion,” Trusty explained.

Trusty added that the individuals we rely on within our criminal justice system to uphold justice in a fair, unbiased, and transparent manner are, in fact, impeding the process due to their intense focus on a single objective: targeting President Trump.

Trusty remarked that the purported incident involving Woodward and Bratt represents the most recent instance of ongoing indications that the Biden Department of Justice exhibits a willingness to disregard ethical norms and disregard the principles of the rule of law in pursuit of political objectives.

Trusty further emphasized that there are additional questionable actions taking place, describing them as “shenanigans,” within Smith’s utilization of a grand jury in relation to Trump. He depicted the case involving classified documents as originating under the jurisdiction of a judge in Washington but subsequently culminating in an indictment filed in Miami.

“You don’t do a grand jury investigation for a year only to move it to another district unless there’s more to the story,” he added.
