Jack Smith Doesn’t Want Jurors Asked How They Voted In 2020. Here’s What He Does Want To Know. | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Special counsel Jack Smith does not want potential jurors to be asked how they voted in the 2020 presidential election - but he does want the court to ask them whether or not they feel that President Joe Biden's Justice Department has treated former President Donald Trump "fairly."

    According to a report published Thursday by The Washington Examiner, attorneys for the former president had called for jurors to be asked about their political party affiliations in addition to whether or not they cast a vote in 2020.

    U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon asked for both Smith's team and Trump's to submit a jury questionnaire - which would allow the court to pre-screen potential jurors and rule out those who could not view the case in an objective manner - by Wednesday, and it was immediately clear that the two sides were at loggerheads over a few of the possible questions.

    Among the questions that the special counsel and his team objected to were the following:

  • Are you registered to vote?
  • If you answered "yes" to the prior question, are you registered with a particular party affiliation?
  • Did you vote in the 2020 presidential election?

    Smith's team also nixed a question regarding whether or not potential jurors held a negative view of politicians, but agreed along with the Trump team to go ahead with questions about whether they held negative opinions of police officers, the FBI, or judges and other court officers.

    The two parties also butted heads when it came to asking jurors about personal media consumption habits. Trump's team asked that jurors rank media outlets - from the one they went to most to the one they went to least - while Smith's team objected, asking jurors to simply "check all that apply" when given a list of media outlets.

    Trump's team also noted objections to several questions, including the following:

  • Have you read about or heard about the FBI's execution of a search warrant at the Mar-a-Lago Club in August 2022?
  • Have you seen, read about, or heard about any statements by Mr. Trump about this investigation?

    Trump's team also objected to a question regarding whether jurors believed the former president was "being treated unfairly by the court system," saying that if that question were included - instead of a simple "yes" or "no" - respondents should be permitted to answer "I don't know."

    Smith also objected to several other questions presented by Trump's attorneys - most notably: "An indictment is not evidence. It is a document that sets forth the charges made against a defendant; it is an accusation. It may not be considered as any evidence whatsoever of a defendant's guilt. Can you think of any reason that would interfere with your ability to follow and apply this principle of law?"

Under the cover of Covid, and now in the shadow of the infamous Election Irregularities of that fated 2020 presidential election, with current emerging alleged election fraud in Nevada and Pennsylvania inconveniently slipping into the public discourse, there is proved a colluded ongoing Election Interference in the nomination of the Republican candidate, the likes of which has never occurred in our Constitutional Republic's history, albeit, the question remains: Do you support the plain-sight Election Interference of the Democratic Socialist party, employing its minions in their Propagandistic Media, and their Two Tiered Justice System?
  No, I do not support Election Interference; I am a patriot unto our Constitution.
  Yes, I do support Election Interference; the alternative, Donald Trump, to this mentally diminished president is far worse.
  "What, me worry" if elections are rigged?

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.
