[Kash] discussed how Karen Gilbert, a Department of Justice prosecutor and the deputy to Special Counsel Jack Smith, has a history of corruption at the Department of Justice but has been continually promoted to be a political hatchet woman.
In 2009, Gilbert was forced to step down from being chief of the narcotics section of the Miami U.S Attorneys office after it was found that she was secretly taping the defense lawyer and his investigator.
The defendant was acquitted on all charges due to prosecutorial misconduct carried out by Gilbert in the case.
Even more troubling, the Associated Press report claims that government informants attempted to bribe defense attorneys in to violating attorney-client privilege.
Patel claims that Gilbert, rather than Smith, has been the driving force behind Trump’s indictment and that she is likely to be the trial lawyer in the case against him.
One of the ‘smoking gun’ pieces of evidence that the prosecution plans to use against Trump is a recording of him admitting to being in possession of classified documents.
Gilbert, who is Special Counsel Jack Smith’s deputy and a federal prosecutor, is “one of the most corrupt prosecutors to ever come out of the Southern District of Miami,” according to Kash Patel, a former top Trump administration official and also a former prosecutor.
“The lead prosecutor Karen Gilbert, who is likely to be the trial attorney in the Southern District of Florida, in 2009 was so reprimanded in a narcotics trafficking case that she had to retire from her position,” Patel said in a Fox News interview on Friday.
“Years later, she was promoted upwards at the DOJ,” he said. “She is the Weissmann to Jack Smith and she has been pulling the reins on this investigation,” he said, in reference to Andrew Weissmann, who was the aggressive deputy to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
