BREAKING: Trump Takes MAJOR Legal Action Against Jack Smith That Could Shake Up His Case

On Sunday, President Donald Trump's legal team responded to Special Counsel Jack Smith's opposition to having Judge Tanya Chutkan recuse herself from the 2020 election case.

The Trump legal team argued that Chutkan's statements in court during two January 6th hearings disqualify her from presiding over the case, as reported by CBS News. During those cases, the judge, while sentencing a Jan. 6th defendant, said that the rioter had "blind loyalty to one person who, by the way, remains free to this day." 

In addition, the defense argued that the judge's remarks in court in late 2021 where she said "A president is not king" and that Trump is "not president" also disqualified her from overseeing Trump's case.

"The public must have confidence that President Trump's constitutional rights are being protected by an unbiased judicial officer," Trump's legal defense wrote in response to Chutkan's comments. "No president is a king, but every president is a (US) citizen entitled to the protections and rights guaranteed by the US Constitution."

Jack Smith, who submitted his opposition to the initial request for recusal on Friday argued that the statements made by Chutkan were "factually accurate" and "responsive to arguments presented to the court."

In response to Smith's rebuttal, Trump's defense wrote, "These proceedings are indeed historic. The public interest is not in the perception of a rush to judgment or a show trial contaminated by the appearance of a partial presiding judge."

"Trump’s lawyers respond to Jack Smith’s opposition for Chutkan to recuse. Asks for a hearing," Julie Kelly reported. "Will be VERY INTERESTING to see how Chutkan balances 2 speech issues—Smith’s motion for gag order on Trump and how she defends her OWN political opinions expressed in court."

"Insinuation for me but not for thee: Part of Smith's reply to Trump's motion for Chutkan to recuse," the journalist explained. "On the flip side, Smith's entire proposed gag order relies on his interpretation of Trump's social media posts to 'insinuate something sinister.'"

Trump's legal team is doing everything in their power to ensure that President Trump receives a fair day in court. This move could shake up the case drastically.
