A special counsel has been appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland to determine whether or not former President Donald J. Trump should be prosecuted in connection with current investigations being conducted by the Department of Justice.
On Friday, Garland selected Jack Smith to be in charge of supervising the investigations against Trump. This includes those connected to the papers recovered during the raid on Mar-a-Lago and the demonstration on January 6th in Washington, District of Columbia.

Jack Smith started on a career as a prosecutor in the year 1994. He worked for the office of the District Attorney for New York County in the capacity of assistant district attorney.
Since 2018, he has been the lead prosecutor for the special court in The Hague that is tasked with examining and adjudicating war crimes in the province of Kosovo.
Garland further said that Smith would be heading back to the United States as soon as possible. In spite of the fact that Trump has repeatedly denied any impropriety in connection with the probes, this evidence has emerged.
