According to reports from multiple media outlets including The Daily Caller, the now-viral photos from the FBI’s raid of Mar-a-Lago, which depicted sheets with the words “top secret,” were staged.

“Jay Bratt, the lead Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutor now assigned to special counsel Jack Smith’s team, admitted in a recent court filing that FBI agents brought cover sheets reading ‘top secret’ to the raid of Mar-a-Lago to use as placeholders in their gathering of classified documents.” The Daily Caller reports. “The classified documents, however, now appear to be out of order following their seizure, both Trump’s defense attorney and the special counsel have admitted, according to court documents first reported by Declassified with Julie Kelly.”

“[If] the investigative team found a document with classification markings, it removed the document, segregated it, and replaced it with a placeholder sheet. The investigative team used classified cover sheets for that purpose,” Bratt wrote in a recent filing.

Trump’s defense attorney, Waltine Nauta, said the following in a May filing:

“Following defense counsel’s review of the physical boxes…and the documents produced in classified discovery, defense counsel has learned that the cross-reference provided by the Special Counsel’s Office does not contain accurate information,” Nauta wrote, according to Kelly.
