Upon hearing Trump's reasoning for his father's innocence, people pointed out that the Department of Justice may have laid out the documents on the floor to take a photo of them.
\u201cThe FBI placed the evidence on the floor to inventory it. It's unbelievable how dumb maga morons are. You can say anything at all like this bullshit Eric Trump is spewing and they believe it. #MAGAMORONS\u201d
Others mocked the former first son for his statement.
\u201cThis is such a batshit response to the FBI raid even for Trump, like no one is mad because his room was messy\n\nAre they trying to make it seem like that's what the FBI is accusing Trump of so it can seem foolish instead of terrifying? What's the angle here?\u201d
\u201c@Acyn Why have they latched onto that photo? No one said that's how they found the folders. It's the same with drug busts where the guns, drugs, and money are photographed. Has anyone said the folders/docs were just all over the floor when the FBI executed the search warrant?\u201d
A federal judge, appointed by Donald, approved the appointment of a special master to review the documents seized from his residence by the FBI
They will examine “the seized property for personal items and documents and potentially privileged material subject to claims of attorney-client and/or executive privilege".
According to the New York Times, the Department of Justice found "18 documents marked as top secret, 54 marked as secret, 31 marked as confidential and 11,179 government documents or photographs without classification markings."
