In a groundbreaking development pertaining to the investigation of alleged voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, a close ally of Donald Trump has handed over a trove of documents to Special Counsel Jack Smith.

Bernie Kerik, the former New York Police Commissioner, played a pivotal role in a team led by Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, with the objective of uncovering fraud that could potentially sway the election in Trump’s favor. For months, Kerik had sought to protect certain documents from investigators, claiming privilege as his justification. ( 📄 Trump Escaping Grand Jury With Jack Smith? )
However, a recent twist emerged when Kerik delivered the documents to Trump’s 2024 campaign for review. Surprisingly, after the review, the campaign chose not to assert privilege over the materials. Consequently, Kerik’s attorney, Tim Parlatore, delivered the documents to the Special Counsel’s office on Monday, July 24.
Parlatore confirmed that he shared approximately 600MB of data, primarily consisting of PDFs, with the Special Counsel and expressed his willingness to meet with them in about two weeks to discuss further details. Additionally, it has come to light that Kerik is scheduled for an interview with the special counsel’s office next month.
The documents now in Smith’s possession encompass witness statements, research materials, and other documents generated by Giuliani’s team during their investigations. Notably, when the January 6 congressional committee previously subpoenaed Kerik for documents, he provided a log of his communications, asserting privilege over certain items. The committee did not contest these privilege claims in court, leading to the non-disclosure of those specific communications to the public.
