AG Garland Appoints Special Counsel to Oversee Probes into Election Interference on Jan. 6, Classified Documents at Mar-a-Lago
(Worthy News) – U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Friday the appointment of Jack Smith as special counsel to oversee the investigation into whether anyone or any entity “unlawfully interfered with the transfer of power following the 2020 presidential election or the certification of the electoral college vote held on or about January 6, 2021” and the investigation involving classified documents and other presidential records as well as the possible obstruction of that investigation.”
Garland explained that he timed the appointment of special counsel after former President Donald Trump’s announced candidacy for president as well as President Biden’s “stated intention” to run for president again as well.
He also explained that the special counsel’s investigation will not include those present on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Instead, those investigations and prosecutions will remain under the authority of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. [ Source: CNS News (Read More…) ]
