Trump used his Truth Social platform, calling Smith, former DOJ official Andrew Weissmann and Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco “losers and misfits.”
He singled out this “team” and others at CREW, an ethics watchdog group, warning of dire consequences if they are re-elected: “They will end up suffering from a horrible disease, TRUMP DISRANGEMENT SYNDROME (TDS!), in a psychiatric facility. until my next term as President is successfully completed. LET’S MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
Smith, who oversees federal investigations into Trump’s handling of classified information and his election interference, has faced repeated Trump disparagement.

Why do so many MAGA Republicans still support him?

Maryanne Trump Barry’s cause of death remains unknown
As Trump engaged in public conflicts, Barry’s sudden death attracted attention. Discovered in her Manhattan home, the cause of her death remains unknown, according to ABC News.
Despite his historical support for his brother’s efforts, his private criticism, notably recorded by his niece Mary L Trump, has marked his recent interactions with the public.
Barry’s career as a federal judge ended amid scrutiny of alleged tax fraud linked to the Trump family’s real estate deals.
