Trump Could Be Facing Indefinite DC Detention Like Other Jan. 6 Defendants

( – According to investigative journalist Julie Kelly, Special Counsel Jack Smith “very well could” ask a D.C. judge to deny Donald Trump’s release.

She continued saying that Smith will ask to “deny him bail once he is indicted, arrested, and arraigned” on the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

Kelly discussed the impending indictment of former President Trump with Breitbart News Sunday presenter Joel B. Pollak on SiriusXM Patriot on Sunday night.

Trump claimed earlier this month that he had received a “target letter” hinting he would be indicted.

On Sunday night, she wrote on her Substack that Trump would soon experience the same punishment as the January 6 defendants, who were detained in pretrial confinement for months despite being charged with nonviolent felonies.

On air, Kelly stated that it was likely that prosecutors would charge Trump and that he would be found guilty due to the bias of the Washington, D.C. jury pool.

She added they would prosecute him despite the Department of Justice’s blatant hypocrisy in refusing to treat Black Lives Matter rioters in 2020 in the same way or apply the same law to left-wing protesters at the Supreme Court or the homes of individual justices.

The comprehensive and biased January 6 Committee and a congressional impeachment inquiry looked into Trump’s activities on January 6 when he instructed demonstrators to march “peacefully and patriotically” to the Capitol.

Still, no evidence of any wrongdoing was discovered.

Smith seems to be testing fresh hypotheses to beat him, such as the so-called “fake elector” notion.

Like John F. Kennedy’s 1960 campaign, the Trump campaign prepared alternate slates of electors to reserve the right to have their votes counted if recounts or court cases overturned the results of close elections in battleground states.

It is believed that the Special Counsel’s office considers that tactic to be an illegal plot to overturn the outcome of the 2020 election.

Pollak questioned Kelly about whether Smith may attempt to disqualify Trump from the 2020 presidential election by accusing him of sedition.

Some Democrats have claimed would be sufficient to prevent Trump from holding public office under the Fourteenth Amendment.

She concurred that he may, saying, “I think it is a strong possibility that they will charge him with seditious conspiracy.”

She also made note that prosecutors had primarily relied on Trump’s words in accusing and convicting Proud Boys members earlier this year.

“Hunter Biden received special treatment from the Department of Justice, seemingly intending to shield his father, President Joe Biden,” Kelly added, “and this was only possible because the prosecution had “the full support of the corporate media.”
