The Department of Justice has just released photos of the FBI’s raid of Trump’s estate.
Several of the photos the DOJ released showed alleged files found in Mar-a-Lago that were labeled as “Top Secret”.
Trump lawyer’s however say the FBI staged these photos.
Investigative journalist Tom Fitton chipped in too and was quoted saying “Biden FBI staged a dishonest photo with purportedly classified material, with the approval of the Biden DOJ”.

The Biden FBI staged a dishonest photo with purportedly classified material, with the approval of the Biden DOJ, and submitted it to a court to try to make Trump look bad. These agencies are irredeemably corrupt.

The New York Post dropped these details:
The Justice Department said in a new court filing that government records were “likely concealed” at Mar-a-Lago in a potential effort to obstruct its federal probe into classified material at former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate.
The Tuesday night court filing indicates that federal investigators are looking into whether Trump’s camp intentionally misled them about the unlawful possession of the secret documents.
The department, in the filing, said Trump representatives told them in June that all White House records at Mar-a-Lago were contained in a storage room on the property.
Trump’s lawyers said “there were no other records stored in any private office space or other location at the Premises and that all available boxes were searched,” according to the filing.
The Tuesday filing provides the most detailed timeline of the interactions between Trump’s team and Justice Department officials ahead of the FBI search. It also includes a photograph of documents labeled “TOP SECRET” with bright yellow borders and redacted pages splayed out on a carpet at Mar-a-Lago.

The Washington Examiner reported more on the story:
The Justice Department filed a lengthy response on Tuesday night to former President Donald Trump’s latest legal demand on the raid on his Mar-a-Lago home.
The filing included one key attachment that garnered the most attention: a photograph showing a series of documents scattered on the floor of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
But what exactly is in the documents displayed by the DOJ, and how could it affect the case against Trump going forward? Below is a breakdown of what can be learned from the blockbuster photograph, what we are still in the dark on, and how some of the key figures in the investigation have reacted to the DOJ’s filing.
The red-bordered folder with a “SECRET // SCI” cover sheet refers to information that is both secret and sensitive compartmented information, with “SCI” defined by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence as a subset of classified national intelligence “concerning or derived from intelligence sources, methods, or analytical processes that is required to be protected within formal access control systems established by the DNI.”
