Biden Fingerprints Visible on Trump Prosecution
While Joe Biden seemed hands off with his 2020 and now 2024 presidential campaigns, his fingerprints are all over one current election-related campaign: the prosecution of former President Donald Trump.
With his special counsel appointment by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, Jack Smith is the front man for what appears a blatant political prosecution, but he’s hardly the only instigator of this action. Joe Biden’s input is increasingly visible as the effort moves forward.
As part of his Trump prosecution, Smith has requested a protective order seeking to restrict actions related to Trump and his attorneys.
Per Just the News:
“All the proposed order seeks to prevent is the improper dissemination or use of discovery materials, including to the public. Such a restriction is particularly important in this case because the defendant has previously issued public statements on social media regarding witnesses, judges, attorneys, and others associated with legal matters pending against him,” the filing for the protective order reads, according to ABC News.
During an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, Trump attorney John Lauro attempted to discuss implications of the order and Biden’s involvement.
Rather than refuting Lauro’s Biden allegations, Bash, as per corporate media anti-Trump protocols, instead shut down the exchange stating, “There’s no evidence Joe Biden is involved in this.”
"There's no evidence Joe Biden is involved in this."

In response, Mike Davis, former Chief Counsel for Nominations to the Senate Judiciary Committee and founder/president of the Article III Project (A3P), used a series of tweets to provide the evidence Bash claims doesn’t exist.
In this Newsmax interview with Chris Salcedo, Davis along with former Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) discussed emerging information pointing in Biden’s direction for legal action against his chief electoral rival. He also mentioned former DOJ senior official Matthew Colangelo’s curious move to the office of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
In Who Gets Punished and Who Doesn’t, Lynn Woolley reflected on a recent column by Benny Johnson.
It appears to be a matter of which party you belong to, and how important that party thinks you might be. Benny Johnson writes about “The Ghost in the Machine,” and says this:
“It’s far superior to control who CAN run for office. And who is allowed to WIN that office. And who is allowed to STAY in office (i.e. Nixon and JFK).”
That’s one of the scariest passages I’ve ever read in a political column. It has the ring of truth. It’s all about people whose names we don’t even know, but who seem to be in control. You vote, but they make the real decisions. If they don’t like a particular candidate, they will destroy him. We’re seeing this in action right now.
It is what we’re seeing. Lauro seems to agree as he described one of Trump’s current legal battles as “very, very unusual, outside of the bounds of criminal prosecution of First Amendment rights.”
Controlling who can run for office is a big lift. And make no mistake, Joe Biden’s fingerprints appear all over this one.
