Trump spokesman says DOJ ‘disturbed’; Report claims Trump searched boxes in Mar-a-Lago after a subpoena

A spokesman for former President Trump accused the Justice Department of prosecutorial misconduct and election interference based on an anonymously sourced article in the Sunday newspaper Washington Post.

“The witch hunts against President Trump have no factual or legal basis,” Trump spokesman Steven Cheung said in a written statement to WaPo.

“The deranged Special Counsel and the DoJ have now resorted to prosecutorial misconduct by illegally disclosing information to corrupt the legal process and arm the justice system to manipulate public opinion and conduct election disruption because they are clearly losing across the board .” Cheung also wrote.

Cheung was responding to a report in Sunday’s Washington Post. The article, sourced anonymously, claims the Justice Department and FBI have collected “fresh” evidence of alleged disabilities related to the Mar-a-Lago raid.

According to WaPo sources, investigators have evidence that boxes of classified material were removed from the Mar-a-Lago storage area after the subpoena was served. WaPo’s sources say Trump has “personally examined” at least some of those boxes.

WaPo’s anonymous sources based their claims of alleged disability on “witness testimony, security camera footage and other documentary evidence.”

According to WaPo, investigators are using email and text messages from a former Trump adviser. The aide was granted anonymity, as were other sources in the article who spoke about the ongoing criminal investigation.

The WaPo describes the evidence that federal investigators collected in the case of the classified information as “new and significant”. They also estimate that Trump’s motivation for allegedly searching the contents of some of the boxes was based on a “desire to keep certain things in his possession.”

Jack Smith is the special counsel investigating the possible misuse of classified information at Trump’s Florida home. He is to check whether the former president himself tried to obstruct officials trying to collect the footage, or whether someone else may have done so at Trump’s behest.

WaPo, as in the past, has drawn sharp distinctions between the classified Mar-a-Lago investigation and the multi-site investigation into President Biden’s alleged misuse of classified information.

WaPo’s anonymously sourced report was released just two days ahead of Trump’s planned indictment in Manhattan.
