Biden staff met with Trump prosecutor Jack Smith’s aide BEFORE indictment


Just weeks before special counsel Jack Smith filed charges against former President Donald Trump for allegedly mishandling classified documents, the White House counsel’s office met with a top member of Smith’s staff, which raises serious concerns about coordinated efforts from the Biden administration to target Trump, New York Post reports. 

According to the White House visitor records, Jay Bratt, 63, who joined the special counsel team in November 2022, not long after it had been established, met with Caroline Saba, the deputy chief of staff for the White House counsel’s office, on March 31, 2023, the outlet reveals.

An FBI agent from the Washington field office, Danielle Ray, also joined them for the meeting, and a few months later, Smith’s office returned a grand jury indictment and charged Trump for allegedly mishandling classified documents, which were found at his residence in Mar-a-Lago.

The New York Post reports that Bratt and Saba also had a meeting at the White House in November 2021, when Trump was caught up in talks with the National Archives over their demand for the surrender of presidential records from his Mar-a-Lago home. This was before an official investigation had officially been launched.

In September 2021, Bratt met with Katherine Reily, a member of the White House chief of staff’s office, for the third time.

Bratt was at the White House for an “interview related to a case,” according to Peter Carr, a spokesperson for the special counsel, who declined to elaborate further to the NY Post.

Since October 2018, Bratt has led the national security division’s counterintelligence and export control unit.  The section investigates and prosecutes national security and foreign relations cases. Bratt visited Mar-a-Lago in June 2022 to evaluate storage facilities and met Trump face-to-face, according to the outlet.

Bratt later reportedly led the charge for the unannounced FBI raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in August.
