Trump Resumes Calling Special Prosecutor Jack Smith “Deranged,” Accuses Him of Tampering with Evidence


Donald Trump is back, and doubling down on antagonizing special prosecutor Jack Smith.

In a post last night, Trump called Smith “deranged” and accused him of tampering with evidence in the January 6th federal lawsuit against Trump.

This time, Smith responded by petitioning the court

that Trump had made “daily extrajudicial statements that threaten to prejudice the jury pool.” Trump may wind up being gagged by the court, which probably wouldn’t mean anything. He ignores court orders and can’t keep his mouth shut — or his fingers off the phone.
