On Friday, United States Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that Jack Smith, a "veteran career prosecutor" would serve as a special counsel to lead the ongoing investigations into Donald Trump being conducted by Biden's Department of Justice.
During a press briefing Garland said, "I signed an order appointing Jack Smith to serve as Special Counsel. The order authorizes him to continue the ongoing investigation into both of the matters that I've just described, and to prosecute any federal crimes that may arise from those investigations. Mr. Smith is a veteran career prosecutor."
Charlie Kirk commented on Twitter and wrote, "Notice Merrick Garland appoints a special counsel for Trump's memorabilia spat but not for the Biden Family's corrupt foreign business deals."
Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene wrote, "IMPEACH MERRICK GARLAND!"
According to the Financial Times, Smith "would oversee an investigation into whether Trump mishandled government documents and parts of an investigation into his role in the January 6, 2021 attacks on the Capitol."
The Washington Post had previously stated that "nuclear secrets" were part of documents held onto by Trump, though it later revealed that presents from foreign leaders were items being sought by the investigation.
The move comes only three days after Trump announced he would be running for president in 2024.
