What were Jack Smith's past remarks on Donald Trump's classified documents case?

Special Counsel Jack Smith asked a federal judge last month to bar former President Donald Trump from characterizing the FBI's 2022 search of Mar-a-Lago as a threat to him and his family, arguing that the claims put law enforcement agents in danger.

According to Smith's allegations, Trump "endangered law enforcement officers involved in the investigation and prosecution of this case and threatened the integrity of these proceedings." 

Trump claimed in a campaign appeal that FBI agents were "locked & loaded ready to take me out & put my family in danger."

Court documents revealed this week that the FBI used its standard use-of-force policy that prohibits the use of deadly force except when the officer conducting the search has a reasonable belief that the "subject of such force poses an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury to the officer or to another person."
