    Jack Smith’s Shocking Proposal – Will Jurors Get Special Protections in Trump Trial?

    Special Counsel Jack Smith, who just got shut down by a federal judge, is now begging the judge presiding over the case against former President Donald Trump for 2020 election interference to protect potential jurors.

    The ex-president was ordered to keep quiet after he made a public post on Truth Social about a law clerk during his New York civil fraud trial last week.

    “Given that the defendant—after apparently reviewing opposition research on court staff—chose to use social media to publicly attack a court staffer, there is cause for concern about what he may do with social media research on potential jurors in this case,” Smith wrote in the motion.

    Smith wrote that protections for prospective jurors are necessary for a number of reasons, but “chief among them is the defendant’s continued use of social media as a weapon of intimidation in court proceedings.”
