Jim Jordan Wants Details on Special Counsel Attorney Meetings at White House

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, wants the details about meetings between a lawyer from special counsel Jack Smith's office and the White House.

Jordan sent letters concerning the situation to Attorney General Merrick Garland and White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients on Tuesday.

"Jordan pointed to three instances in which Bratt had meetings with White House officials: in September 2021, November 2021, and March 2023. He cited a New York Post story that relied on White House visitor logs," the Hill reported.

"Jordan raises issue with the 2021 meetings by noting that former President Trump’s lawyers were negotiating with the National Archives about obtaining his presidential records," it continued.

“According to recent reporting, Jay Bratt — a Department of Justice employee and top aide to Special Counsel Jack Smith — met with White House officials multiple times, just weeks before Mr. Smith indicted former President Donald Trump,” Jordan wrote.

“This new information raises serious concerns regarding the potential for a coordinated effort between the Department and the White House to investigate and prosecute President Biden’s political opponents.”

Jordan hopes to receive more information to determine whether there was collusion between the White House and Jack Smith related to the Washington charges against former President Donald Trump.

Trump was charged this summer over Jan. 6, 2021, an event from over two years ago, making the indictment appear highly political.

The indictment is in addition to other cases against the former president in Florida related to classified documents and in Georgia over allegations of election interference.

Jordan's work could find details that would upset the entire Washington case against Trump, but he'll first have to get answers to his letter, which remains uncertain.
