Special counsel Jack Smith is setting an "extraordinarily dangerous" precedent by piercing former President Donald Trump's attorney-client privilege using secret arguments the defense wasn't allowed to see or appeal and using questions Trump asked his own lawyers as evidence against him, former Trump defense attorney Timothy Parlatore told CBS News on Tuesday.

From The New York Times, "Trump Indictment Shows Critical Evidence Came From One of His Own Lawyers":
The two indictments filed so far against former President Donald J. Trump — one brought by the Manhattan district attorney, the other by a Justice Department special counsel — charge him with very different crimes but have something in common: Both were based, at least in part, on the words of his own lawyers.Tracey has been on a roll highlighting the utter lunacy involved in this case.
"'Trump Attorney 1' is [Evan] Corcoran who was forced to testify to the grand jury and hand over notes memorializing conversations with his client, Trump. Abolishing bedrock principles of attorney-client privilege: another casualty of the principle of throwing Trump in prison," Tracey commented.
"'What happens if we just don't respond' is exactly the type of question you'd expect a client to ask his lawyer in the context of privileged, confidential communications. But here the DOJ decided to *seize* those communications and present them as evidence of criminal wrongdoing. Obliterating civil liberties and empowering the National Security State in the name of taking down Trump -- the neverending story," Tracey said.
Tracey shared more on Jack Smith:
The charges are laughable considering the President has the authority to declassify anything he wants.
