Trouble: New GOP House Chairs Cast Doubt On Trump Super Prosecutor

  • The incoming chairmen of two powerful House committees are raising doubts that the special prosecutor named by Attorney General Merrick Garland to oversee the investigations of Donald Trump can be impartial given his history with two prior scandals involving conservatives.
  • Just the News reported Monday that newly appointed Special Counsel Jack Smith prompted the early discussions that led to the Lois Lerner IRS scandal targeting Tea Party groups and also oversaw the prosecution team in former GOP Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s corruption case, which was roundly overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court as an overreach.
