Justice Clarence Thomas destroys Jack Smith in two words

An old saying goes, the pen is mightier than the sword.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has assured us this is still the case.

At the end of its session, the Supreme Court issued several rulings last Monday. One of them was its long-awaited decision on presidential immunity, especially as it pertains to President Donald J. Trump and the charges brought against him by Biden’s Department of Justice and Special Counsel. Biden’s “special prosecutor” Jack Smith has been spearheading this operation, only to be mopped up like kitchen scunge by Clarence Thomas in his concurring opinion.

These four high crimes appeared to be, at face value, the more serious of the 91 felonies (and E. Jean Carroll complaints) the former president faced.

Last August a grand jury indicted Trump, accusing him of extraordinary conspiracy in his many calls for electoral integrity in the aftermath of the 2020 campaign. Trump, according to the indictment, conspired to defraud American voters and obstruct an official proceeding, the certification of electors on January 6, 2021.

The charges claim the lawsuits and hubbub in several swing states, even those which went into questionable vote-counting overtime, constituted part of this “conspiracy.”

Note, this Election Interference Hullabaloo is not the Mugshot Case. That trumped-up charges belong to the Georgia’s peachiest prosecutor, Fani Willis—though not, any longer, to Fani’s ex-lover Nathan Wade. But that’s another story altogether.

“Knowingly false.” Right.

The Trump campaign appealed these unprecedented banana-republic-esque charges, citing the concept of presidential immunity. Does an American president have some protection to maintain order and safety for the American people?

U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, a Jamaican-born Obama-appointee, as well as a slew of appellate judges, refused to consider Trump’s arguments. Then, canceling the original March trial date, the Supreme Court stepped in. SCOTUS heard oral arguments in April and delivered its opinion in favor of some presidential immunity early this week, 6-3.

When you are president, the reasonable minds on the bench explained, you have to make some decisions, within your “conclusive and preclusive authority,” to preserve the nation and her people.

Of course, the media are at their wits’ end.

Extra! Extra! They’ve made a monarch out of Trump!

What was actually in the decision shouldn’t have been that difficult for them to understand:

  1. The President of the United States has absolute immunity in all decisions made in the context of his constitutional powers.
  2. The President of the United States has immunity when he takes official acts.
  3. The President of the United States does not have immunity when he takes unofficial acts.

The word “king” shows up a total of zero times in the 119-page decision.

Then there was Justice Clarence Thomas’ supplementary concurring opinion, in which he decided to slam Special Prosecutor Jack Smith.

I write separately to highlight another way in which this prosecution may violate our constitutional structure. In this case, the Attorney General purported to appoint a private citizen as Special Counsel to prosecute a former President on behalf of the United States. But, I am not sure that any office for the Special Counsel has been “established by Law,” as the Constitution requires.

Think about that one: Thomas called Special Prosecutor Jack Smith a “private citizen.”

The darling of the administrative state, deputized to swoop in at just the right moment and impress the powers that be by nailing Orange Man Bad with four felonies, was summarily dismissed as a private citizen, in prosecutorial terms a nobody, by Justice Thomas.

Thomas might as well have asked Smith, “Who even are you?”

A private citizen. There exist no two words more crushing to one of these narcissistic Democrat apparatchiks.

Thomas went on to explain that no office or agency outside the confines of what is legally allowed by the Constitution is allowed to prosecute an office within the confines. As a “private citizen,” Comrade Smith has no authority to lodge formal criminal charges against anyone, let alone a former president of the United States.

Clarence Thomas understands… overreach… better than anyone—except maybe Donald J. Trump.

He has been the target of Deep State operations since, well, 1991. Some of the most recent attempts at a “gotcha” involve “revelations” about the justice’s gifted luxury vacations and his wife Ginni’s relationship with Evil Conservative Thinktank the Heritage Foundation (gasp!).

Every few months or so, the Deep State hacks and their media cheerleaders make these efforts at exposés. Their attempts fall flat, partially because the accusations carry little to no weight, and mostly because Justice Thomas doesn’t care.

They’re only private citizens, after all.
