BUSTED! Biden DOJ Caught Using Staged Photo of Alleged ‘Classified’ Documents Perfectly Lined Up on Mar-a-Lago Carpet In Response To Trump Motion For Special Master

Imagine my shock to learn that the FBI and DOJ are not plying by the rules in their efforts to nail President Trump … I know, shocking, right?

At this point I would be shocked to find out that the agency actually did anything by the book.

The founders would be rolling over in their graves if they knew the level of tyranny this rogue agency is forcing upon this once great nation.

Here is the latest scandal to come out of the FBI … don’t blink or you may miss the next one …

The Gateway Pundit reported:

The Biden Justice Department submitted its opposition to President Trump’s suit demanding a special master be appointed to review documents taken in the FBI raid on his Palm Beach, Florida home, Mar-a-Lago, on August 8.

Included in the response was a staged photo of ‘classified’ documents laid out on a carpet next to a storage box with a framed Time Magazine cover.

The documents are spread out on the carpet all facing the same way to the camera. Several documents have been whited out, while others have classified markings including Secret//SCI, HCS and Top Secret//SCI. The HCS marking stands for ‘HUMINT Control System’, indicating human-sourced intelligence.

Internet sleuths have observed that several dates on redacted documents are left exposed in the photo.

Politico’s Kyle Cheney discerns these dates: “-May 9, 201(8?) -Aug. 26, 2018 -Aug. 2(8?), 2018”

The DOJ filing, which can be read at this link, trashes Trump’s claim of executive privilege and makes an accusation of obstruction, “The government also developed evidence that government records were likely concealed and removed from the Storage Room and that efforts were likely taken to obstruct the government’s investigation.”

In addition to opposing the appointment of a special master, the filing also rejects Trump’s demands for the return of seized documents and an injunction barring further review of the documents by DOJ.

Excerpts:

On June 3, 2022, three FBI agents and a DOJ attorney arrived at the Premises to accept
receipt of the materials. In addition to counsel for the former President, another individual
was also present as the custodian of records for the former President’s post-presidential office.
When producing the documents, neither counsel nor the custodian asserted that the former
President had declassified the documents or asserted any claim of executive privilege. Instead,
counsel handled them in a manner that suggested counsel believed that the documents were
lassified: the production included a single Redweld envelope, double-wrapped in tape,
containing the documents. The individual present as the custodian of records produced and
provided a signed certification letter, which stated in part the following:
Based upon the information that has been provided to me, I am authorized to
certify, on behalf of the Office of Donald J. Trump, the following: a. A diligent
search was conducted of the boxes that were moved from the White House to
Florida; b. This search was conducted after receipt of the subpoena, in order to
locate any and all documents that are responsive to the subpoena; c. Any and
all responsive documents accompany this certification; and d. No copy, written
notation, or reproduction of any kind was retained as to any responsive
document.
I swear or affirm that the above statements are true and correct to the best of
my knowledge.
See Attachment E.4

After producing the Redweld, counsel for the former President represented that all the
records that had come from the White House were stored in one location—a storage room at
the Premises (hereinafter, the “Storage Room”), and the boxes of records in the Storage Room
were “the remaining repository” of records from the White House. Counsel further
represented that there were no other records stored in any private office space or other location
at the Premises and that all available boxes were searched. As the former President’s filing
indicates, the FBI agents and DOJ attorney were permitted to visit the storage room. See D.E.
1 at 5-6. Critically, however, the former President’s counsel explicitly prohibited government
personnel from opening or looking inside any of the boxes that remained in the storage room,
giving no opportunity for the government to confirm that no documents with classification
markings remained.

Once in a secure government setting, the FBI conducted a preliminary review of the
documents contained in the Redweld envelope. That preliminary document review revealed
the following: 38 unique documents bearing classification markings, including 5 documents
marked as CONFIDENTIAL, 16 documents marked as SECRET, and 17 documents marked
as TOP SECRET. Further, the FBI agents observed markings reflecting sensitive
compartments and dissemination controls. Counsel for the former President offered no
explanation as to why boxes of government records, including 38 documents with
classification markings, remained at the Premises nearly five months after the production of
the Fifteen Boxes and nearly one-and-a-half years after the end of the Administration.

Break.

Through further investigation, the FBI uncovered multiple sources of evidence
indicating that the response to the May 11 grand jury subpoena was incomplete and that
classified documents remained at the Premises, notwithstanding the sworn certification made
to the government on June 3. In particular, the government developed evidence that a search
limited to the Storage Room would not have uncovered all the classified documents at the
Premises. The government also developed evidence that government records were likely
concealed and removed from the Storage Room and that efforts were likely taken to obstruct
the government’s investigation. See also MJ Docket D.E. 80 at 8 (“As the Government aptly
noted at the hearing, these concerns are not hypothetical in this case. One of the statutes for
which I found probable cause was 18 U.S.C. § 1519, which prohibits obstructing an
investigation.”). This included evidence indicating that boxes formerly in the Storage Room
were not returned prior to counsel’s review.
