Mar-A-Lago Raid Evidence Inconsistencies Raise Questions About Special Counsel’s Integrity

The admission by special counsel Jack Smith that the order of items within some boxes of evidence seized from former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence is not consistent with the associated scans has raised questions about the integrity of the investigation into Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified records. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has launched an inquiry into potential evidence manipulation in the case.

In a letter to the Office of Professional Responsibility Jordan expressed “grave concerns” about the Justice Department’s commitment to impartial justice and whether Smith’s team misled a federal court or upheld the highest professional standards. He is demanding that the office produce all documents and records related to any allegations of ethical impropriety regarding Smith or other attorneys assigned to the special counsel’s office.

The inconsistencies in the evidence boxes were revealed after Trump’s co-defendants requested a delay as lawyers were having trouble determining the origin of some documents. Prosecutors had previously told the court that the documents were in their original intact form as seized during the August 2022 raid on Mar-a-Lago.

Trump has vehemently denied any wrongdoing calling the case a “scam” and an “Election Interference Scam” promoted by the Biden administration and “Deranged Jack Smith.” He has pleaded not guilty to the charges which include allegedly violating the Espionage Act making false statements to investigators and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
