- Conservatives have taken the first shot at Jack Smith’s credibility
- They question his impartiality because of his wife’s work and donations
- Katy Chevingy produced Michelle Obama’s film Becoming and donated $1,000 to Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign against Donald Trump
- Smith was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland as the special prosecutor overseeing the criminal charges against former President Trump
Conservatives have taken the first shot at the credibility of Jack Smith (pictured), who was appointed by AG Merrick Garland as the special prosecutor overseeing the criminal charges against former President Donald Trump
The special counsel assigned to oversee criminal investigations into former President Donald Trump has married a producer for the Michelle Obama documentary and donated $1,000 to Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign.
Special Counsel Jack Smith’s impartiality has been called into question following the new revelations.
Katy Chevingy is listed on IMDb as a producer for Michelle Obama’s 2020 documentary Becoming — a little bit of conservatives are grabbing as her husband takes charge of the Trump investigation.
They are also using the OpenSecrets revelations that Chevingy donated $1,000 to Biden’s 2020 campaign in 2020 to diminish Smith’s credibility.
This is the first straw in trying to discredit Smith, who Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Monday that he would be in charge of criminal charges against Trump for taking documents to Mar-a-Lago, as well as parts of the 6, 2021 uprising.
Smith has overseen a variety of high-profile cases throughout his decades-long career, including prosecuting a sitting U.S. Senator, prosecuting war crimes in The Hague, and cases against gang members who murdered New York police officers.
However, his nomination is being dragged down by Republicans because of his wife’s production in leftist films and donations to Biden’s presidential campaign against Trump.
You would think that if the stated goal of avoiding any kind of concern about bias were sincere, they would at least check that when you shake the special counsel family tree, evil Trump-haters, Never Trumpers, Biden- supporters are dropping out,” Florida Representative Matt Gaetz said in an interview with Steve Bannon Tuesday.
Smith’s wife, Katy Chevingy, is a producer for Michelle Obama’s 2020 film Becoming and also donated $1,000 to Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign against Donald Trump. This has led Republicans to question whether the husband of Chevingy can be impartial
The ardent pro-Trumper demanded that Congress end the “political exercise against President Trump.”
In addition to Becoming, Chevigny also worked on other far-left films such as Dark Money, which focused on the Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court case, and other socially liberal films such as E-Team and Deadline.
“You just can’t make this up,” Georgia Republican Rep. Andrew Clyde tweeted about the revelations about Smith’s wife.
Katy Chevigny, wife of Jack Smith – the special counsel assigned by DOJ to go after President Trump, donated to Joe Biden’s campaign and produced Michelle Obama’s documentary. America cannot stand a corrupt, bipartisan justice system,” Clyde added.
Prominent political figures often face backlash for their husbands’ actions.
A recent example is the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, who was targeted this fall by the Jan. 6 Select Committee for sending messages to officials contesting the 2020 presidential election.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Judge Thomas should withdraw from all Jan. 6 cases given his wife’s actions.
Defenders for Smith who argue he can remain impartial in the case point to Ginni Thomas as conservatives began rolling over Chevigny’s activities.
