Legal experts and analysts were stunned by the Justice Department’s late-night filing detailing the sensitive documents found at Donald Trump’s home as well as efforts by the former president and his attorneys to stymie the investigation.

The 36-page brief included an image of some of the documents discovered when the FBI executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago earlier this month, and counters many of the claims made by Trump’s attorneys.


“This factual recitation has him dead to rights, there’s no question about it,” conservative attorney George Conway said on CNN.

Conway, a longtime Trump critic despite his marriage to Kellyanne Conway, who served in the Trump White House, added that the filing shows the former president is “guilty as sin”:

Other legal insiders and observers found the brief every bit as damning:

If the FBI found these documents in your home, you would go to jail.

Insane heart palpitations for anyone who’s ever been in government seeing this picture

I just read the DOJ motion for the Mar-a-Lago search warrant. Wow did Trump filing his motion for judicial oversight backfire! The DOJ Motion is so damning it could essentially be copy and pasted as an indictment. Trump is the biggest POS traitor.

The location of the classified documents (in the drawer in Trump's desk) and the fact that they were mixed in with other documents (presumably Trump's personal property) is evidence that Trump was responsible for the willful retention of those documents.

This photo was taken during the Aug 8 search, AFTER trump lawyers signed a letter certifying all classified materials had been returned. It makes me nauseous.

Some documents were so highly classified, some FBI agents had to get additional clearances to review them.

Call me crazy, but I could see an indictment with Trump and his lawyer(s) as co-defendants.

Worth keeping in mind there is still a lot we don't know about the Mar-a-Lago search. For example: What particular documents did Trump have there? Why did he have them? Who accessed them? What witnesses did DOJ have, and what did the witness tell them, that led to the search?

As somebody who had a clearance for the better part of 35 years, this picture gives me hives

These are the secrets that protect our troops. Either you want them protected or believe they should be in the hands of a corrupt man who has used U.S. resources before to help himself. Are you with the troops or Trump? #TroopsOrTrump

If any other government employee had had this stuff, they would’ve been fired into the Sun.

Based on its response, I think DOJ and FBI were shocked by the volume and sensitivity of material seized at Mar-a-Lago.

Feels like a good night to RT

Ironic that Trump has done to himself exactly what so many people have been urging him to do to himself for years.
