DOJ ADMITS TO EVIDENCE TAMPERING IN TRUMP CASE

From zerohedge.com

Special Counsel Jack Smith's team admitted on Friday that key evidence in Trump's classified documents case was altered or manipulated - leaving two different chronologies; one that was digitally scanned vs. what's in the actual boxes.

Smith also misled the court, after originally telling U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon that the boxes remained "in their original, intact form as seized," when in a footnote they conceded that they removed classified documents and left placeholder sheets, which prosecutors acknowledged has created an "inconsistent" record - in which some of the documents are no longer in the same order as they appear in digital scans made in the fall of 2022.

"The Government acknowledges that this is inconsistent with what Government counsel previously understood and represented to the Court," the footnote reads, according to Just the News.

The finding comes after Cannon ordered a review into whether the FBI may have seized legally privileged records in response to a request from Trump co-defendant Walt Nauta.

"Since the boxes were seized and stored, appropriate personnel have had access to the boxes for several reasons, including to comply with orders issued by this Court in the civil proceedings noted above, for investigative purposes, and to facilitate the defendants' review of the boxes," wrote Smith's team in the Friday filing.

"There are some boxes where the order of items within that box is not the same as in the associated scans," the filing continues. The organization of the documents in storage boxes at Mar-a-Lago is likely to be an important part of Trumpā€˜s defense. His team is expected to argue the documents were stored in the White House in chronological order on the days that Trump received them, and that staff simply boxed them up and sent them to his home without him accessing them or knowing they contained classified information. Several legal experts told Just the News the court filing essentially is an admission of evidence tampering, and could be problematic.

"Prosecutors and investigators should never tamper with or alter evidence in their possession, including the order of documents in a box because one never knows what may become relevant or crucial to a court or jury later in a case," Alan Dershowitz told Just the News.

"This admission is stunning on multiple levels," said defense attorney Tim Parlatore, who worked on Trump's team earlier in the classified documents case but no longer is involved, adding that the revelation "reinforces the incompetence" of prosecutors "in conducting basic criminal investigations and prosecutions that I observed when I was on the team.

"But at a deeper level, the loss of specific document locations is a destruction of exculpatory evidence," Parlatore added. "I went through all of the boxes at NARA and the document order was important because it was clear to us that the boxes had been untouched since leaving the White House.

"For prosecutors who are trying to prove that the defendants knowingly possessed these documents to then destroy the evidence that would undermine that claim is a very serious violation," he said.

In response to the filing, Trump said on Truth Social that "Deranged Jack has admitted in a filing in front of Judge Cannon to what I have been saying happened since the Illegal RAID on my home ... that he and his team committed blatant Evidence Tampering by mishandling the very Boxes they used as a pretext to bring this Fake Case."

As Judicial Watch's Tom Fitton suggests, this is "Yet more reason to throw out this sham prosecution."

In another recent filing, President Trump's team said that the case should be dismissed because prosecutors are motivated by "improper political animus," pointing in part to how White House lawyers worked with the National Archives and Records Administration on its referral to the Department of Justice and how Biden has said that he was "making sure" President Trump "does not become the next president again."

    Never attribute to incompetence that which is more easily explained by malicious intent. This case should be dismissed and Smith should be disbarred and locked up. This farce is bringing the entire US legal system into disrepute. If this doesn't get dismissed with prejudice then the rule of law in the US is literally over. Without the Rule of Law society ultimately will collapse.

    If the Supreme Court does not rule against these politically motivated prosecutions, the United States is officially a banana republic. Many courts and judges already moved the US solidly in the direction of banana republic when they refused to accept cases on the stolen elections. Plus they want to do away with the electoral college, so that massive fraud in a city or two can over rule any chance for honest elections.

    Democrat Communists only exist through theft and deception. Now they are showing themselves for what they are. One way or another, these criminals will be brought down.
