Now that former President Donald Trump has been indicted by President Joe Biden's Department of Justice, all eyes are on the DOJ prosecutor in charge of the case related to his handling of classified documents.

According to Breitbart, Karen Gilbert, the Justice Department prosecutor leading the charge against Trump on behalf of the U.S. government, has a shady history, complete with federal reprimands.

Gilbert is Special Counsel Jack Smith’s deputy and a federal prosecutor.

Some have described her past actions as "corrupt," which Trump's legal defense will undoubtedly use in their defense against the charges.

"One of the most corrupt"

Kash Patel, a former prosecutor and former Trump administration member, held nothing back in describing Gilbert as "one of the most corrupt prosecutors to ever come out of the Southern District of Miami."

He added: "The lead prosecutor Karen Gilbert, who is likely to be the trial attorney in the Southern District of Florida, in 2009 was so reprimanded in a narcotics trafficking case that she had to retire from her position."

"Years later, she was promoted upwards at the DOJ,” he said. “She is the Weissman to Jack Smith and she has been pulling the reins on this investigation," Patel continued.

Breitbart noted:

According to a March 27, 2009, Associated Press report, Gilbert resigned as chief of the narcotics section of the Miami U.S. attorney’s office after she and another prosecutor were involved in the secret tape recording of a defense lawyer and his investigator.

Social media reacts

Social media users, and especially Trump supporters, slammed Gilbert for her shady past, emphasizing that it's unfair to Trump to have someone like her in charge of the prosecution.

"This is unbelievable. Every time I think I’ve heard the worst I haven’t. Shocked Fox still has Kash on since he is in Trumps camp," one Twitter user wrote.

Another Twitter user added: "Like a lot of these guys, they don't try to prove guilt anymore, they just try to create a conviction."

Only time will tell if Gilbert and Smith's prosecution moves forward with any success.
