The DOJ Needs Some Help from Their Hollywood Friends…The PR Stinks! – Watch
Maybe the Department of Justice should get some of their left-leaning Hollywood friends to send them their image consultants. Because the DOJ just keeps looking bad as the Mar-a-Lago raid keeps unfolding in the press.
The latest filing from the Justice Department alleges to finally have a “smoking gun.” They believe it shows that Trump was obstructing justice with the documents that he kept at his personal residence.
They offered this 36-page filing that has 18 pages of attachments and exhibits. They even have a photo that shows a collection of documents marked “secret” and “top secret” placed across the floor.
The photo was meant to have the public ooh and ahh and give up hope for Trump.
But if you analyze the photo, you see at the edge of it a box filled with framed Time Magazine covers.
Wait…they seized magazines from the former president?
Jason Chaffetz wants to know, “what in the world?”
“The impression I got is that it was a public relations effort. This is not needed in a court document to make the case to the sitting judge,” Chaffetz pointed out. “This was put out there knowing that they were going to go out there to the media.”
The DOJ is losing the public relations war in its decision to raid Mar-a-Lago. The overly redacted warrant used to search Trump’s personal home only created more questions for the Department.
Now their new, shiny, smoking gun photo shows the FBI stealing Time magazines from the former president.
Chaffetz went even further, “The idea that they spread them out across the floor and started taking pictures of them does not instill confidence. This is not how we’re supposed to administer justice in this country,” He also noted that just because the covers say top secret, it doesn’t prove that the items are classified or had not been declassified.
The “smoking gun” just doesn’t really have smoke after all. Hollywood, can’t you help your friends at the DOJ?
