In an environment where the political scales seem to be tipped unfairly against him, former President Donald Trump, undeterred, seeks a face-off with the Department of Justice (DOJ). This call-to-action is regarding the ongoing federal probe into allegations of him possessing classified documents—documents seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida last year.

Ironically, these very documents are subject to a drawn-out dispute between Trump and the National Archives concerning the archival integrity of the presidential materials.

In a twist that smacks of double standards, Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed special counsel Jack Smith to spearhead the investigation into these documents. Their goal? Determine if there’s a case against Trump. Meanwhile, the troubling questions surrounding President Joe Biden’s son and his questionable activities go unanswered.

Putting up a front of tenacity, Trump took to his Truth Social account on Tuesday. There, he broadcasted a letter penned by his legal team to Garland, a call to the justice carpet. The content of the letter starkly contrasts the treatment of Trump with that of the Biden clan. It read, “Unlike President Biden, his son Hunter, and the Biden family, President Trump is being treated unfairly.”

A potent claim was made in the letter: “No President of the United States has ever, in the history of our country, been baselessly investigated in such an outrageous and unlawful fashion.” The letter appealed for a meeting at the earliest convenience to debate the purported unfair treatment by special counsel Smith and his team of prosecutors.

However, Anthony Coley, a former spokesperson for the attorney general, attempted to deflate any anticipation for such a meeting. He tweeted late Tuesday, reinforcing that Jack Smith is overseeing the investigation—not Garland. According to Coley, Smith doesn’t fall under the daily jurisdiction of any person within the DOJ, including Garland himself.

Anonymous sources cited by ABC News suggest the true aim of the letter is to counter potential accusations of mishandling classified documents. On the other hand, The Washington Post hypothesized that the grand jury’s activity concerning the investigation might indicate Smith being on the cusp of deciding whether to file charges against Trump.

Notably, The Wall Street Journal reported that Smith’s team interviewed multiple staff levels at Mar-a-Lago. The questions focused on potential proof of a crime, with specific emphasis on Trump’s intentions and any plausible defense he could offer. Despite signs pointing towards Smith’s investigation nearing completion, it remains unclear whether he will make the final decision on filing charges or pass the recommendation to Garland.

Trump’s communication to lawmakers last month hinted at the presence of classified documents interspersed with briefing papers. These related to his phone calls with foreign leaders, leading one to believe that White House staff indiscriminately collected materials during their departure.

Tim Parlatore, an attorney involved in crafting the letter, affirmed its purpose: to ward off criminal charges. Despite no longer representing Trump, Parlatore expressed his doubt on charges materializing from the ongoing investigation.

In an era where the treatment of conservatives like Trump starkly contrasts with that of the liberal elites like the Bidens, it’s high time we ask: where is the justice in this justice system?
