Huge development : Jack Smith’s Case Could Be Finished – Here is what happened

A lot of people are watching the 2024 presidentiaI campaign and the indictment of former President Donald Trump on charges related to Jan. 6th, as well as the impending decision of the U.S. Supreme Court on Trump’s request for immunity from prose cution for acts taken while president.

Even more probable than the immunity issue to affect Special Counsel Jack Smith’s prose cution of Trump is a dormant behemoth of a case that is brewing in the Supreme Court.

Joseph W. Fischer v. United States is the case that the court agreed to hear in December; it makes no direct reference to Trump. Joe Fischer, a defendant who was charged on January 6, is at issue here, and the question at hand is whether or not the DOJ and prosecutors have been abu sing a law passed in 2002 to punish financial cri mes.

If the court rules in favor of Fischer, it will cast doubt on the appIicability of the law to other defendants connected to the events of January 6th, including Trump.There are four counts total in Smith’s indictment. That includes two counts of conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding and one count of actual obstru ction. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act, passed in the wake of the Enron corporate accounting scandaI, makes it a felony to obstruct a U.S. government official proceeding and governs financial disclosures.
