2:02 am
a special council has been appointed to oversee us justice departments, investigations, and to former president donald trump. attorney general mary garland named war crimes expense jack smith to lead probes into trump handling of classified documents after leaving office. and his attempt to interfere in the 2020 presidential election results. now this comes 3 days after trump announced that he'll run again for president in 2024. based on recent developments, including the former president's announcement that he is a candidate for president in the next election. and the sitting president stated intention to be a candidate as well. i have concluded that it is in the public interest to appoint a special council, such an employee, an appointment under scores, the departments commitment to both independence and accountability, and particularly sensitive matters. it also allows prosecutors and agents to continue their work expeditiously and to make decisions indisputably,
2:03 am
guided only by the facts and the law. oh hi. disaster has more now from washington d. c. the appointment of this special council jack smith is meant to serve as sort of a fire wall during this very politically sensitive moment. just after trump has announced that he is going to seek a 3rd term in office. and as biden says, that he is intending to run for reelection. who is jack smith? was he currently up until this announcement worked as a war crime prosecutor at the international criminal court at the hague. so now he is d. c bound where he has about 3 decades of experience working in the u. s. capital, he led the department of justice of public integrity section in the tooth, 20 ten's winning high profile convictions of corrupt politicians,
2:04 am
who were republican and democrats. and that may be one of the key qualifiers which made him an attractive candidate for this pick. because this is someone who people will have described as a political by the book, a consummate professional. now what will smith do? well, he will immediately take over the oversight of these 2 federal criminal investigations into the former president, which includes trumps alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election and his transfer and retention of classified documents that may have endangered national security to his private home. after he left the office, oh, let's not seem to care finkelstein. she is a law professor at the university of pennsylvania and also the director of it since the ethics and the rule of law. she joins us now from philadelphia and claire. i understand that merritt garland had pushed back for a long time when the idea of a special council. what is now changed his mind?
2:05 am
the main thing that happened is that donald trump has declared as a candidate for the presidency. and that potentially puts merrick garland in the position of conflict of interest, given that his boss, who has also said you will be running for president, president biden will be indirect conflict with former president trump. it might not have been strictly necessary at this early stage a but merit carland is a by the books kind of attorney general, he's extremely cautious and he wants any indictment that comes down regarding donald trump's actions to be beyond reproach. well, this was a move and an a sensible move to make. i say that the president biden also wasn't informed in advance. another move, presumably to demonstrate independence. but then if the special counsel smith decides to indict attorney general garland still has to sign off by my understanding. so how much of a difference will this actually make will make
2:06 am
a significant difference? because all of the investigation, all of the consideration of evidence and the recommendation to indict will come from an independent prosecutor and the country has a long history of using independent prosecutors. this is pre me court decision that upholds the constitutionality of independent prosecutors. and i think that lends to grab a task and independence to this investigation that helps to rebut some of the charges that will inevitably be made that this was a purely political decision. claire, tell us a little more about jackson if i see this isn't actually the 1st time that he's investigating from what do you make of the choice? i think it's a very wise choice. he's the kind of bipartisan figure, but also someone who has been the most recently a player on the international scene. and that gives, not only a national,
2:07 am
but an international stature to this decision. he is very likely to have free reign. he will not be interfered with i, america orland, or by the, by the administration. as you pointed out, there will have to be an eventual sign off by barrett carlin, for any kind of indictment. but that will be secondary to a recommendation on the part of jack smith with regard to the merit of indicting donald trump. i and that is a very good way to proceed. because smith will smith's recommendation on that point will very likely lend an error of non partisan credibility to the decision that mary carlin alone could not apply. well, this is all obviously about perception, right? i see trump is already complaining that the appointment is political and i understand
2:08 am
we'll hear from him again in a few hours. he's declared a press conference. will this do what the justice department hope so could this potentially backfire with certain parts of the public? any indictments of the former president given his following and given the burial and, and indeed violence of some members of his following will be profoundly controversial. so for mary carland, the choice was not and non controversial option versus a controversial one. it was just a matter of how controversial, but he has the norm as symbolic courage and making this decision because it does tilt very strongly towards indictment. i think it's very likely that the end recommendation of this will be indictment of the former president. and while that
2:09 am
will be greeted in with the fury of anger and possibly physical violence in the streets by many of his supporters, merrick garland is determined not to allow the stature of the former president to determine whether or not an indictment is appropriate under these circumstances. if he has violated the law, which very likely from everything we know about, the marg mara lago situation be has a violation of the espionage. i will be incumbent upon the department of justice to hand down and then bite. but this is probably the safest and most neutral way that special act can be done. however, difficult that the search clear finkelstein the law professor at the university of pennsylvania. great to get your thoughts. claire, always happy to hear from you on al jazeera. thanks again. thanks
