The plot to overthrow Donald Trump is a never-ending soap opera storyline full of twists, turns, and serious insanity. Deep State officials are so desperate, in fact, the FBI has even resorted to leaking staged photos of the documents found at Mar-a-Lago.
The image displays the cover pages of multiple classified documents, and some of them were outlined with yellow borders and labeled “top secret.” The documents were scattered out on a carpet at the Mar-a-Lago resort, which the former president claimed he had not done.
“Terrible the way the FBI, during the raid of Mar-a-Lago, threw documents haphazardly all over the floor (perhaps pretending it was me that did it!), and then started taking pictures of them for the public to see,” Trump posted on Truth Social. “Thought they wanted them kept Secret? Lucky I Declassified!”

The Justice Department said the photo was a “redacted FBI photograph of certain documents and classified cover sheets recovered from a container in the ’45 office,” the court filing read. But it did not specifically allege the documents were sprawled by Trump.
Meanwhile, Trump already declassified these documents before leaving the Oval Office due to a standing order he signed while still President. The hysteria created over the supposedly top secret information is merely a diversion tactic meant to influence the public before November.
The Justice Department further rejected that claim in its Tuesday court filing, claiming that Trump never tried to invoke “executive privilege” nor claimed that the documents obtained in 15 boxes during an exchange with the National Archives and Records Administration in January were declassified.
The raid, which occurred on Aug. 8 at Trump’s South Florida home of Mar-a-Lago, was part of an investigation over whether Trump violated the Espionage Act and qualified for an obstruction of justice charge.
The obstruction of justice investigation concerns the “improper removal and storage of classified information in unauthorized spaces, as well as the unlawful concealment or removal of government records,” according to a DOJ affidavit.
Are we living in a banana republic or a bad version of Soviet Russia? Either way, Donald Trump is being severely attacked by Deep State officials, an attack he very well may not survive.
