Grenell painted a picture of a vindictive and corrupt system that is hostile to outsiders, especially those who refuse to follow the rules of Washington DC.

De la Garza opened the conversation by questioning the claim of Jack Smith, the prosecutor leading the investigation against Trump, and suggested that his motivation might be to force Trump to “turn him” or bankrupt him on legal fees.

Grenell agreed, saying, “if they had a case, they wouldn’t go after the staff.” He explained that the DOJ’s tactics seem designed to scare individuals into speaking out against Trump in order to build a case.

He lamented the endemic corruption in Washington DC, adding that the only people blind were those in power: politicians, media and bureaucrats residing in the city. Grenell claimed that Washington was becoming increasingly hostile to outsiders, especially any president who refused to play by his rules.

The discussion turned to Smith’s use of the Espionage Act in his case against Trump. De la Garza argued that the case was really about the Presidential Records Act, which would be a civil matter, not a criminal one.

Grenell clarified that, as president, Trump had the “full and complete authority” to declassify any information he wanted without having to inform anyone. He dismissed the objections raised in Washington as an attempt by bureaucrats to gain more power for themselves.

Grenell criticized Smith’s professional history, accusing him of overreaching in legal cases. He cited Smith’s case against the president of Kosovo as an example of such behavior, noting how the prosecutor was widely mocked in Eastern Europe for his reach.

That criticism is emblematic of the ongoing controversy surrounding the DOJ’s investigation into Trump, painting a picture of biased and overzealous prosecution. As Grenell suggests, this could be indicative of a larger problem of corruption and overreach in Washington’s power structures.
