(SNews) – Bill O’Reilly has predicted Attorney General Merrick Garland’s appointment of Special Counsel Jack Smith to investigate President Donald Trump will backfire on the Democrats.
As Slay News reported, Special Counsel Jack Smith, who was appointed by Democrat President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ), has a history of targeting conservatives.
Garland named Smith as special counsel for the DOJ’s ongoing investigation of Trump, which has already seen the FBI raid the 45th president’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida.
On his show on The First TV, O’Reilly described the anti-Trump investigation as “a mess.”
“In order for Jack Smith to investigate what Trump did or did not do on Jan. 6, he has to get into the FBI and what the FBI did or did not do,” O’Reilly said.
“He has to. He can’t bury it.”
O’Reilly noted that the New York Times reported that that “there were at least eight FBI agents embedded in the most virulent protesters that day.
“They were there. The FBI was there.
“Well, what the deuce were they doing?”
That issue came up in the House recently during a committee hearing when FBI Director Christopher Wray was questioned.
“Did the FBI have confidential human sources embedded within the January 6 protests on January 6, 2021?” Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) asked Wray.
Wray said: “As I’m sure you can appreciate, I have to be very careful about what I can say about when and where we do and do not use confidential human sources…
“But to the extent there is the suggestion that the FBI’s confidential human sources or FBI employees in some way instigated or orchestrated Jan 6th, that’s categorically false.”
Higgins said, “Did you have confidential human sources dressed as Trump supporters inside the Capitol on January 6, prior to the doors being opened?”
“Again, I have to be very careful,” Wray said.
“It should be a no!” Higgins said.
“Can you not tell the American people, ‘No, we did not have confidential human sources dressed as Trump supporters positioned inside the Capitol on January 6.’?”
“You should not read anything into my decision not to share information on confidential human sources,” Wray said.
“The question,” O’Reilly said, “was simple:
Did any FBI agents dress up like Trump supporters and go into that Capitol?
“And Wray would not answer the question. Now, that should raise flags everywhere.
“I don’t think Garland even considered that when he was mocking up the special counsel.
“I don’t think he even considered it.
“But if it’s proven to be true, and I’m not a conspiracy guy, I don’t believe the FBI instigated anything — but if the FBI knew what was gonna happen and didn’t report it to the White House and to the Justice Department, all hell’s gonna break loose in this country.”
There's one BIG problem with the DOJ's special counsel, says @BillOReilly.
