Special counsel Jack Smith’s prosecution of former President Donald may yet land him in trouble, with legal experts saying the special counsel could face an obstruction of justice charge.

A report on Conservative Archives revealed that United States District Judge Aileen M. Cannon postponed Smith’s case against Trump indefinitely following the special counsel’s admission that his team may have tampered with evidence provided to the court.

Jay Bratt, the lead Department of Justice prosecutor assigned to Jack Smith’s team, previously told the court that the documents seized from Mar-a-Lago were still in their original boxes. Bratt, however, walked back the claim after Trump’s attorney, Waltine Nauta, submitted a filing showing the classified documents in stacks were out of their original place.

Mike Davis, the former law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and founder of the Article III Project, told the Daily Caller that the latest revelation could be big trouble for Smith and Bratt.

“Special counsel Jack Smith and his counselor Jay Bratt could face severe consequences if it is proven true that they doctored evidence and presented it to the court and the public knowing it was doctored. They could face discipline from the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility. They could face sanctions from Judge Cannon and they could face criminal prosecution for obstruction of justice,” Davis said.

Davies noted that Judge Cannon could throw out the case based on how Jack Smith and his team mishandled the evidence.

“Judge Cannon seems to have serious concerns with potential grand jury abuse by Jack Smith and Jay Bratt in D.C. before this unprecedented indictment and Judge Cannon seems very concerned about issues with tampered evidence, spoliation of evidence and chain of custody issues that are serious potential constitutional and ethical violations that could lead to the dismissal of this case,” Davis added.

John Malcolm, vice president for the Heritage Foundation’s Institute for Constitutional Government and former deputy assistant attorney general in the DOJ’s Criminal Division, insisted that the latest discovery could complicate the case.

“It could [complicate the case]. I don’t know whether it will or not, but it certainly could,” John Malcolm said. “The allegation or the argument would be, they’ve tampered with the evidence they’ve affected its integrity in some material way. I mean, it would be as if they had messed with somebody else’s DNA sample or had smudged the fingerprint.”
