Glenn Kirschner: Jack Smith Is Exactly the Person We Need on Trump

"You said special counsel Jack Smith Thanksgiving Day court filing that destroys Trump's lawyers legal arguments. It seems like people are pretty heartened by the speed that Jack Smith appears to be moving at. What do you think? Yeah, Jack is a real without fear or favor kind of prosecutor. I didn't know him personally, but some of the folks that were in my homicide section ended up leaving the D.C. U.S. attorney's office and working for Jack when he was the head of public integrity at the Department of Justice. And I'll tell you that now we have a little bit of hero fatigue, right? Because we thought bob Mueller was going to bring it home and Bill Barr basically blocked him and lied about his report. We thought Merrick Garland was going to bring it home. I will say now having seen Merrick Garland operate over the last year and a half. He's a very good man, but he seems to have lost his prosecutorial instincts and he's behaving more like a judge, which is not what we need out of our attorney general at this moment in history. But what I've been told about Jack Smith is, listen, he's fearless. He will take politically charged cases that are difficult to prove. He has prosecuted Republican politicians and Democrats. And he's not afraid to lose. He's going to do the right thing. And that's precisely the kind of person we need heading up the Trump cases at this point.

Yeah, I mean, it's basically what you guys did in New York State, but on steroids, it is the elimination of cash bail for what have been determined to be according to legislation, non detain able offenses, non attainable offenses like kidnapping, like arson, like second degree murder. You have county prosecutors. There's a 102 county prosecutors in Illinois, a hundred. But that didn't matter. And you have Illinois telling the public under this law, we will not be able to detain about half of the population in our respective county jails. So you're turning out violence have a propensity to repeat, particularly if there's no inhibition. And honestly, Mike, I don't know, maybe that's what it takes in places like Illinois or New York or California. Maybe until some of the suburban communities feel the impact of violent crime of the lawlessness that's taken hold at cities. And maybe that's what it will take to get people to make changes in the political leadership of their big cities and their state capital.

Broad daylight walk out because they won't be prosecuted.

Listen, these radicals, these zealots, the Lori Lightfoot's of the world, they don't want bad guys prosecuted, Dan. Well, this is the anti broken windows philosophy of Soros funded prosecutors. You've got Alvin Bragg in Manhattan. We've got Kim Foxx and Cook County in Chicago. And this is why you have lawlessness that is raining in big blue city America. I mean, in Chicago, we've had 670 people murdered so far this year more than 3300 people shot. And that's actually slightly down from last year.

"Some of the things they were saying were just simply horrendous, as a matter of fact, I want you to listen to cut 14. This is someone saying that Lauren boebert that congresswoman and Tucker Carlson, they need to be flogged. They need to be punished for defending these children against these radical sex and gender revolutionaries. Cut 14. You need to see accountability and consequences. So first, a real quick hate crime charge here on top of the homicide charges, I applaud that. That tells me prosecutors and police, they found quickly what they needed. That means they know this was a bias crime. This is likely, and since we've heard reports that the subject isn't cooperating with police, that means they likely found clear and convincing evidence on his devices. If he's a consumer of the people we just rattled off from Lauren boebert to Tucker Carlson, let's get it out. Let's get it out at trial. Let's expose it for what it is. Name it and shame it. He's a consumer of these people and those people should face civil consequences from the victims. The other thing they want to deny is not only the safe harbor, but the way we resolve this. And by that, I mean, you asked earlier, how do we put a stop to hate? Well, one of the things you would normally do is teach young children in school, here's what race is about. These other people over here who may seem different to you. They have a different orientation. But you know what? Increasingly, states are saying, no, no, no. You can't talk about race or say the word gay or teach anything in schools. So they deny the resolution mechanism that we would normally use. So this guy is saying that the government clearly was a fan of Lauren boebert and watch Tucker Carlson all the time. Well, there's no proof of that. And I can not sit here behind this big, beautiful, huge conservative microphone, and tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that the guys ever watched Fox News channel.

Glenn Kirschner Sheds Some Light on Special Counsel Jack Smith

"So let's get to the big question. Because we've been flailing without you as you know. Ever since the appointment of Jack Smith, who apparently is not the guy in the matrix, he puts on sunglasses. I think he is. But no, it's a different guy. Different guy. Okay. But Glenn, I think it was Barbara mcquaid, I saw on TV first that said, you know, the Justice Department wouldn't be doing a special prosecutor if they weren't going to indict. If they were going to decline. So, you know, and then everyone from tally nostalgia was like, this is no Jill wine banks initially said this is a waste of time and money. And you and I have been obviously impatient for justice for a long time and my first thought is, why isn't an indictment? Why is it, you know, yet another step. But, you know, it takes me a second to calm down. But just a little. But I think we all have Mueller fatigue, right? We think, oh God, are we starting all over again, blah, blah, blah. And a lot of people have pointed out how Lawrence tribe and others that they think this will speed it up and not slow it down. Dying to get your take on it because I do get that it's different a bill Barr's not in charge, it's not Trump's Justice Department. He is not starting from scratch, but give us your whole overview on this. Yes, Steph, I wish we had an hour. There's so much to unpack. And we do have, we have superhero fatigue. We thought bob Mueller was going to come in and take Trump out. His report did take Trump out the problem is Congress and the Department of Justice didn't act on the crimes that bob Mueller documented in volume two of the Trump Russia report. We thought Merrick Garland was going to come in and do what was necessary. It turns out in hindsight, Merrick Garland turned out to be too much judge and not enough prosecutors. So I am not prepared to say Jack Smith is galloping in on the white horse and he's going to take care of all this. However, first thing I did was I talked to all my Friends and former colleagues who worked with or for Jack Smith. I don't know Jack personally, to a person, they can not speak highly enough of his determination to hold criminal politicians accountable. Without regard to politics or criticism or fear of failure, here's why I really like the appointment of Jack Smith. We can do an autopsy on whether Merrick Garland should have appointed a special counsel. There are good arguments on both sides, but I think the bottom at the bottom of it all wants Trump announced he was a candidate. Let's face it, Merrick Garland is Joe Biden's attorney general. So to have Joe Biden's attorney general going after Joe Biden's only announced political opponent in the 2024 election, I believe, left Merrick Garland, no other choice but to appoint a special counsel.

I think it's really interesting to hear. You say that. Because i think that one of the biggest challenges that we face as technicians for movement. And that's what prosecutors are. We're not we don't lead the movement but we are technicians for one of the biggest challenges. We face is that people believe it's impossible know.

Because i really wanted people to see whether we sunk or we kept swimming and i want them to see. We're just people the notion that you're so excluded from politics that you can't win is untrue by like certainly proves that it is untrue and it is exactly what mainstream politicians wants you to believe. They want you to believe that. They're the only ones with the keys to the kingdom. They're the only ones who can crack the code. Turns out that since most people eight politicians when they have someone who's not a politician in his actually genuine and coming to an election in a creative way. That may actually be a very very strong candidate right while the same is true when it comes to getting inside of a monolithic Scary misguided system like the criminal justice system. It's actually not that hard to change things. You're not gonna succeed in everything but you can be an ordinary person and you can win an election. You can be an ordinary person you can get inside of a monster like this and you can make some real improvements with at and you can also fail and get up the next day. Keep trying you know.

"I was seeing what happened in all the other cases that you watch when you sit in a criminal courtroom and i truly considered it to be a situation where i had achieved a lot of justice for individuals but all of that was a drop in the bucket and the bucket was full of injustice. What we were seeing was a system that got worse every single year that i was grinding away with my individual clients. You know i felt. I was fifty six and i just kinda felt like i hadn't achieved any kind of sweeping change that this was going to be my career and it wasn't enough. Felt like if nothing else. Maybe i can start a conversation. By speaking truth to power the activists like to say and lo and behold i turn out the voters like the truth you've been characterized often as a radical. I saw that a lot in the articles that were against concern trolling about your potential doom. In this primary that you ended up winning by more than thirty points. What do you think of that. Label particularly within the context of what you're trying to accomplish. I don't think there's anything wrong with being a radical. The word refers to going to the root of what the situation is trying to fix it a very broken system. But i do. I think it's accurate now. I don't actually think is accurate. You know this terrible radical voted for joe biden. Who can i mean to me. That's a budget nonsense. But even more a bunch of nonsense when you look at the history of criminal justice and what you see. is that what. I'm talking about what we're talking about. In many ways resembles the levels of incarceration that existed for decades decades during the twentieth century. The radical experiment in my mind was mass. Incarceration it was. You know venomous approach of richard nixon. The war on drugs everything that came after this essentially cloaked effort to go after antiwar protesters and to go after black people. Which is exactly what it was for me. That's the radical experiment when you go from x. number of people in jail to five x people in jail within a few decades what so radical about trying to go back to where we're in the first place. Obviously mass incarceration has been a failure in a castrophe for the country. You know. I think the real radicals here are the ones who are so smitten with the idea that nobody should be on the sidewalk. Everybody should be in jail cell. A lot of people in this country. Think that violent crimes stems from. I guess some kind of pathology within impoverished or under served neighborhoods as opposed to some kind of systemic issues. And i feel like what you're trying to accomplish. E seem to be getting down to the root causes of this stuff. Are you trying to fix a system. That's inherently broken or in way cannot trying to hold it together and use it to the extent that you can for good. Well i guess. I don't know how to answer that question because i'm not sure what's the difference between trying to hold together and improve and imperfect system trying to fix it I used to work on cars when i was a kid. I kinda shade tree mechanic with my best buddy. We used to fix cars tune Change the clutch brakes and stuff. And i grew up kinda broken if we had a car beat ass car and it was a car. Needed scotch tape and it needed Bandaids entity rubber bands in paperclips to keep it together and you know and that's what we did.

And i realized during that process that while i loved you know criminal offense that i wanted to be able to do civil rights cases as well Because i had such a deep affection for protesters and activists and the important work that they do and philly was a place where they just kept getting arrested for no good reason and prosecuted so the next twenty five years of my career was spent with a combination criminal defense work at every level. We're talking underage drinking. we're talking triple murders. I came to the end of that thirty or cycle watching another. Da's race that was gearing up and it was the usual suspects who are running. They were not serious about reform they were using a lot of the old language And to some extent could take him. I watched this slow motion car. Crashing courtrooms thirty years. And i was in court as i was a trial or so. I was very busy in court house in court for five days a week. A wasn't just seeing what happened. In my cases..

"Talking about sending dilates here and this is something i feel like. It's one of those things that we as americans just kind of accept like okay. you know. There's the three strikes law and there is the crack cocaine disparity which thankfully the administration is now endorsing legislation to fix. What is the power of a district attorney to to fix that. Let me just digress for one second to tell you how stupid a lotta these sentencing guidelines by all means. He's you know history. Sentencing guidelines in pennsylvania was that people thought consistency was nice and they thought that there was some inconsistency some you know very rural counties were given out different sentences than some very urban counties and the types of offenses. Were quite different. You might only have one homicide. In a decade in a particular county as opposed to a much larger number of homicides either pittsburgh or philadelphia but for some reason you know this should all be consistent because consistency is nice so they did not come up with a system of sentencing guidelines that was based upon criminological data or recidivism statistics or anything else that might shed light what they did is they averaged it. And by averaging numbers across the state looking at sentences judges had given out. Guess what this drives up the sentences. You're supposed to give in the big city and it drives down the sentences you supposed to give in the smaller locations. The populations are in the big cities. The large number of cases are in the big cities. It became this mindless mechanism for driving up sentences in the big cities. Only much much much later. Was there any anything other than you know. A bunch of people sitting around a table talent. What their gut was for what a sense should be. And tying the hands of judges very harmful stuff very wasteful. The good news is that the united states supreme court a lot of the other courts and general legislatures have shied away a little bit from mandatory sentencing and they've taken guidelines and made them so that judges if they have reasons don't have to follow them so they're kinda reintroducing a certain level of discretion in. There's not enough. There always should have been more discretion. That's why we have judges so that they can exercise individual discretion. So what can i do. Well number one in many instances. I don't have to pursue a mandatory. So i don't in some instances. We have to make a charging decision about whether we're going to pursue a particular charge that has a drastic effect on the sentencing guidelines of. We think it's unjust and unfair to pursue that charge because it calls for some kind of ridiculously high inappropriate sentence than we can choose not to bring the higher charge that we can bring the lower charge You know we also can go to court and we can make recommendations those recommendations can be yo judge. We don't think these guidelines are appropriate..

"You know in the fact that they're not applying that retroactively people who've already been sentenced to be honest. I think we we have to not as people who are progressive on the left. We have to not do what the left does so well which is to eat our own. We have to after knowledge except that there is a variety of thought within group of people who are trying to be modern. Who are trying to do things that are scientific who are trying to We may not all agree on certain things. And that's okay but it's not okay to be a wolf in sheep's clothing and You know i can think of prosecutor. I'm not gonna name that person who used to be a member of what is essentially the progressive prosecutors club and then when everybody saw with that prosecutors actually doing was uninvited you know there are some people who have to be thrown out. I think the the one of the ways that we can really move forward is to recognize that often law when it comes to justice in the united states is a floor. But it's not the ceiling. Even where the law provides these sort of minimal protections these minimal kind of due process protections often prosecutors have discretion to require more. You know we can make decisions about whether a completely barebones case that is just probable cause but nothing more is good enough to bring our. We want something that that gets us closer to prove beyond a reasonable doubt before we even charging even in a cash bail system. We make decisions about. Whether we're gonna try to simulate something else we might succeed might fail but those are the things that we can try to do and we can also make decisions on things that are categorical. Like there's certain things. I'm just not gonna charge. There are mandatory is. I'm just not going to pursue. Because i think judges should actually have the discretion to do what we elected them to do which is to make decisions about individuals in individual cases rather than have some you know legislator who came up with something political and knows nothing of the field control them and put handcuffs.

"Very long time. How do you tell people who have been subjected to that that they should trust police or trust prosecutors. One way that you do it. Is that when you find innocent. People sitting jail after twenty five years. You get them out and we have done that. We started a conviction integrity unit. That at this point has released twenty people from jail on a total of twenty one case is one of them had two cases who should not have been convicted the way they were convicted end. The vast majority of them overwhelmingly are clearly an absolutely without question innocent of the crimes with which they were charged in the first place. Why do you do that well because you should. Because it's what prosecutors are supposed to do at seeking justice but it also is symbolically incredibly important in a city that bombed the itself that you have a prosecutor or prosecutor's office. That's trying to make sure the system is accurate. It is fair to individuals that restores trust it gives them a reason at least to think about reconsidering whether they trust prosecutors. When there's harm that happens on their block the police have to do the same thing you know and there have been some moderate positive steps forward philadelphia. We obviously the da's office have no control over what the police department does. But in in especially in post. George floyd america. We expect something different of our police commissioners and the mayors who put them in that position what we expect is that they are also going to be progressive there going to be about integrity. They're going to be about trying to push back against this. Democrats isn't they're going to a lot of stuff. That has not at all. Ben what was done in philly and was done in other places You know there was a big symbol here. Though ch- change and the symbol was that we took our confederate general statue.

Who became chief of police who became the mayor and as mayor. He was just like he was as chief of police. He was one hundred percent about racism and brutality. That's what it was and selling a city's financial future out to the police in the police. Union the removal after years of controversy of the statue of frank.

"That are unprecedented. So i don't think we should read too much into the moment. But how can we improve things. Well first of all once we get the courts running again. We can do the kind of things that we did before that resulted. In a fifty percent reduction in future. years of incarceration. We literally cut in half the future. Years of incarceration coming out of of the court system so we can get back to a lot of those policies which were making good headway. We can get back to policies of not prosecuting people for sex work. Not prosecuting people for possession of marijuana. That list can get longer. We can work on the vast enhancement of diversion in other words accountability that does not include a conviction because the tot sequences of conviction are so stark in terms of disabling someone from participating in the economy in all of its consequences. Disabling that same person who can't participate in the economy from being a provider from owning a home from obtaining housing et cetera et cetera. So we have plenty to do and we have people in the office who are very energetic and excited. Just the internal stuff too. You have an office where the culture was very very different before we got here. We did not get here that long ago. No kidding i mean put yourself in the position of someone. Trying to find experienced incapable supervisors to supervise. You're young and excited mission driven idealistic progressive lawyers. You just hired a law school. We're trying to supervise them. But the bench of supervisors is a bunch of people who were at least a little comfortable. In the prior administration an administration that was diametrically opposed to what we're doing. Look we knew the cops were against you. We parked in ice cream truck in front office to see mike. You're soft on crime but seemed to indicate that your team's predecessors weren't exactly thrilled either. Can you tell me what that adjustment period was like as you move from being so rights lawyer to district attorney. Sure i can by the way i you know. I think it's very important to point out that our campaign was endorsed by the african american officers. They are required to be a member of the dominant police union fraternal order of police. Which is our bargaining unit. That is a one hundred percent White male lead organization historically republican endorsed. Donald trump twice. The subgroup of african american officers are members of that group. They endorsed our campaign against the opposing campaign ban. That as i say that only to say that even within the current active police population we have supporters. Unfortunately these unions are usually controlled by their retired membership as the one in philadelphia is so you know. The union doesn't need as active members at all because they have such a large number of retired members so they create the impression that somehow all cops are not with crasner or all. Cops are not with this. Da's office actually not true. We do have a lot of active officers. Who are supportive. Even voted for us. It's just that that's not the impression the f. o. P. would like you to take. Of course you know philadelphia's a city where within our lifetimes the police bombed its own residence and obviously you know to get people to buy into even reforming a system of jurisprudence. That would allow for something like that. I i just wonder what's the impediment for you to sell people on working within the system to change the system to sell especially black philadelphians. Who continue to experiencing disproportionate amount of the violence that The police department perpetuates philly is in fact the city that bombed itself and that is certainly one noteworthy example of a pervasive culture..

"You know prison psychologist. You're talking about social workers. You're talking about correctional officers and every elderly relatives. They have at home. You don't under those circumstances. We decided the most we can do. Under pennsylvania law was to ask on the one hand for no cash at all and on the other hand for a large amount of cash that large amount was actually one dollars less than a million and it was one dollars less than a million for specialized reason which is that within the county correctional facilities. There was a rule that if it was a million dollars you had to be held in this very secure way that made it hard to socially distance people right. That's how we got to that number. The number was the highest number that we could seek the best simulation of hold without bail that we could get would not also tie the hands of the person in charge of the jail. It both succeeded tremendously and failed tremendously. The success came at the level of further reducing the low bales and it became a part to to our earlier success in getting rid of those kind of really low bales. A thousand dollars bail. You know one hundred dollars. Bail two thousand dollars bail. We got rid of a lot of that. You know my position is in was cash. Bail doesn't work at the end. Incarcerates poor people dump stuff at the other end it lets out people with resources for really serious things that what we try to do. I will tell you it is. It is one of the policies that we brought that has been controversial. It's one of the policies we brought where we don't feel like it was a smashing success. It has been a source of a lot of frustration. Both inside and outside the office. I would love to get rid of cash bail. I think an awful system. I think if you're so dangerous that you should not be on the street while you're waiting trial then like in dc and new jersey and in kentucky now illinois than you should be held and it doesn't.

"For people who would like to take us back to an old philosophy massacres It has had a tremendous effect in philadelphia because the institutions. That did not want to admit that there is a legitimate grassroots movement for change now have to admit it but it also has its national impact because in just the same way that kim fox's victory two years ago in chicago george gascons victory last year even maryland moses reelection in baltimore a couple years ago in the same way that all of those shows where the people were. This shows that it shows that the people are way ahead of their elected officials and their institutions and they want real criminal justice reform in some respects. I think that there's just it's culture. Fear that some people could say police unions or other political interests have a vested interest in promoting. Yes there was rising gun violence in philadelphia last year long with a lot of other cities. But there's people who are invested in blaming it on progressives in wherever they said whether there'd be the da's office city hall what have you. I think that's absolutely right. It's you know it's the gift from richard nixon. That just keeps on giving steady politics of fear it's best. Buddy is an irrational and unscientific approach criminal justice and its worst enemy is a rational and scientific approach criminal justice. It's gotten us to a very bad place in the media wrapped themselves around a very long time ago at least. A mainstream media developed symbiotic relationship. Where a politics of fear was also a newspaper selling click baiting journalism of the fear and talking about terrible individual cases while completely ignoring the larger realities of what was going on in the system. I mean just last year. Let's look last year. For example we did have historically terrible year in terms of gun violence but crime across the country during the pandemic went down slightly and even the category of violent crime a category that includes gun violence but also includes things like rape and gunpoint robbery in the salts without weapon. Filing print went down last year across the country so what we actually saw. Last year was not some form of lawlessness which was a favourite phrase of trump during his big city bashing effort reelection. we didn't see lawlessness. We didn't even see an increase in violent crime..

On friday february twelfth con one in the second round with seventy two which got him the majority of the hundred and twenty three member states voting for the next prosecutor of the icc on several people have been really heavily involved in this process like we have either observing or advocating. One of those is a marianna pena from open. Society justice shouldn't ship. She's been working on. All the different elections happening this assembly of states parties so we asked her how she now feels. I'm super happy. I actually looked back it. The work we've been doing with open society on the prosecutor election we started in november and twenty eighteen.
