(FiveNation.com)- A former federal prosecutor said that Donald Trump could face 20 years in prison for obstructing justice, according to Newsweek. Glenn Kirschner said that the former president made a miscalculation when he criticized Special Counsel Jack Smith, who is overseeing two investigations into Trump.
“I think Donald Trump has got another thing coming,” Kirshner said during an appearance on The Legal Breakdown with Brian Tyler Cohen, suggesting that his criticism is not going to intimate or deter Smith from doing his job.
The comments are coming after Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social, and posted a series of tweets going after the special counsel, saying that Smith should not be near “our already highly WEAPONIZED & CORRUPT ‘Justice’ Department and FBI,” adding that he will be listening to leftist monsters.
Smith is overseeing two investigations into the former president, including the classified documents that he allegedly took from the White House and his role in the January 6 Capitol riot.
Trump also went after Smith’s family in his posts, posting a picture of Smith’s wife applauding the victory of Joe Biden in 2020.
“Donald Trump’s threats against Jack Smith’s family members might very well support an obstruction of justice charge,” Kirschner said, adding that he is corruptly interfering and obstructing the justice process, which is a 20-year federal felony. Kirshner reiterated his comments after Trump made similar posts on Truth Social about the documents he took from the White House.
Trump allegedly kept letters from the dictator that he called “love letters,” saying they belonged to him before finally returning them to the National Archives and Records Administration in January 2022, according to Business Insider. The former president also allowed journalist Bob Woodward to look at them, despite knowing that the letters were classified.
Trump has always praised his good relationship with the North Korean dictator, something that President Biden cannot do after the communist country issued a threat to the U.S., saying that it “better refrain from causing a stink” if “it wants to sleep in peace for the coming four years,” according to American Pigeon.
