According to CBS correspondent Robert Costa, special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into former President Donald Trump is more ‘deep and sprawling,’ extensive and intricate than previously understood. This revelation comes amidst recent Supreme Court developments regarding Trump’s claims of immunity.

Costa, responding to the Supreme Court’s decision to not immediately address Smith’s petition on Trump’s immunity, emphasized the ongoing relevance of Trump’s actions surrounding January 6th to the Court’s future deliberations. He highlighted the critical question of whether Trump conspired against the U.S. government.

CBS News’ reporting indicates that Smith’s investigation is well-equipped with substantial evidence, including phone records, memos, diary entries from key figures like former Vice President Mike Pence, and significant eyewitness accounts from those in the Oval Office with Trump. Costa pointed out the special counsel’s advantage of having subpoena power, which allowed for a deeper probe than what was possible for the January 6th Committee.

Costa’s discussions with lawyers and witnesses involved in the investigation led him to conclude that Smith has developed a comprehensive case against Trump. This case is said to delve into numerous aspects of Trump’s conduct and decisions.

Additionally, CBS correspondent Jan Crawford predicted that the Supreme Court would eventually reject Trump’s presidential immunity claims. She suggested that the decision could be unanimous, with a 9-0 ruling against the notion that Trump is immune from criminal prosecution.
