FBI Blasted for ‘Staged’ Photo of Documents Seized in Mar-a-Lago Raid
By Breitbart. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is under fire for a recent photo that showcased documents the Bureau seized from Mar-a-Lago scattered across the floor, leading some to call out the photos for being “staged.”
The photo was included in a DOJ filing submitted late Tuesday that opposed former President Donald Trump’s request for an independent review of the documents the FBI seized from his estate earlier this month.
The photo, which showed several redacted documents and others that were marked “TOP SECRET,” quickly made its way to social media after the DOJ submitted its filing to Federal Judge Aileen M. Cannon.
“DOJ wins daily PR battle with photo of classified documents strewn across floor at Mar-a-Lago,” Washington Examiner chief political correspondent Byron York noted. “Story is Trump alleged mis-handling of classified documents, and just look at them — scattered all over the floor! Can you believe it?”
York then shared a screenshot of a tweet from verified user Cheri Jacobus who posted the DOJ photo and said, “This is how Trump stored Top Secret material he stole.”
Is that the way the documents were found? Many on Twitter believe so. Representative tweet: 'This is how Trump stored Top Secret material he stole.' 2/11 pic.twitter.com/PThhyppTow

FBI photo of documents strewn on floor implies Trump behaved carelessly with government documents. In fact it's the FBI that placed the documents on the floor for a staged photo. You too could be the victim of this kind of dishonest "law enforcement." Be warned. #FBI

The congresswoman, who recently lost her reelection bid to represent Wyoming in Congress, claimed she could have won the party’s nomination in a tweet last week, had she decided to side with the former president in his allegation that the 2020 election was “stolen” by widespread voter fraud.
The FBI’s photograph, which was released in the DOJ’s response to Trump’s request for a special master to look at the materials taken by federal officials during the search, was apparently taken at Mar-a-Lago. The photo provoked ridicule from the former spokeswoman for Vice President Kamala Harris, Symone Sanders-Townsend.
1) I cannot believe pictures of these documents are on the internet. Truly I would have never imagined this when I worked at the WH. 2) WTF is going on with this carpet?!? https://t.co/AGfmrJkk4c
