As the title suggests, something's been bothering me about the photo of "classified documents" released by the DOJ in their response filing for the special master request by Trump's legal team.
The cover sheets are all wrong.
I've had access to Top Secret/SCI material for over 40 years, working with it on a daily basis. I have never seen cover sheets with a solid color border that say "SECRET/SCI" or "TOP SECRET/SCI." Those would be OK if they were just SECRET or TOP SECRET collateral information (not sensitive compartmented information - SCI). The cover sheets for SCI documents have striped borders in the respective colors, and have the compartment listed on the cover sheet - not just "SCI."
The reason for this distinction is that the two categories need to be clearly distinguishable. Those look like regular (collateral) classified coversheets. If the "SECRET/SCI" cover sheets shown in the photo actually were used, they could easily be inadvertently mixed with the collateral coversheets, because they look so much alike.
SCI cover sheets need to be readily identifiable, so they are handled in their appropriate compartment, and not intermingled with collateral classified information.
Those look like standard coversheets with the "SCI" moniker added by someone who doesn't know the difference, or the importance of the difference - either on NARA's side, the DOJ/FBI side, or the TRUMP side.
Someone help me out on this - I could be wrong, but I'm losing sleep, and just don't get it. Nothing else in the photo indicates classification, so the photo is not probative, and certainly not prejudicial as I see it.
But we're not supposed to tell anyone that!
I wouldn’t worry about it-it was a photo-op.
I wondered if Trump even just put those fake covers in there (with pictures of Melania inside) in advance to make their hearts race.
Things just haven’t been the same since Kinkos folded.
“ Someone help me out on this - I could be wrong, but I’m losing sleep”
Seriously? You’re losing sleep over this? :-)
Nonsense. Everyone I work with has it on their unclassified resumes/CVs. It’s when you get into more detail that it gets dicey.
“Staged” photo, that’s what’s wrong with it.
FBI Blasted for ‘Staged’ Photo of Documents Seized in Mar-a-Lago Raid
Kash Patel, a former top Trump administration official who was named in the highly redacted Mar-a-Lago search warrant affidavit, also said the FBI “staged” the photo of the documents.
“So first of all, it is staged. I wasn’t there. I don’t know if that’s how they found them, but I doubt it. And those red and yellow things that you see on the floor cover sheets, those aren’t classified,” Patel told Benny Johnson on Wednesday.
It’s called tampering with evidence.
Just funnin' ya'. Inside joke.
Send a letter to Trump’s lawyers. Go to Trump’s web sight and see what you can find there. Trump posts there and so do his kids.
It seems like literally everything that’s done by DOJ is to generate some kind of PR/media response and shaping a narrative.
They leak, they spin, the put out fake information - they give fake photos to the press
Its all possible
The whole point is to motivate the Democrat base to get out and vote, nothing more. You can fool some of the people some of the time, but there are others you can fool all of the time. 🙂
Why do we have so much secret stuff anyway?
Oh it is staged for sure. They admitted it. The NYT claims it’s SOP for the FBI to take evidence and place it on the floor to photograph it. LOL
I’ve had an SCI for 7 years and I’ve never seen ones like that.
“Baby milk factory”?
All of us who’ve seen that kind of information know that looking at the photo.
It’s some sort of Hollywood cartoon.
Staged by the FIBies to get the proles riled up.
It’s clearly staged.
No question about that.
They’re just theater props.
Fmr. AG. Barr was just being interviewed on TV and he has become an aggressive Never Trumper to a high degree. It was unbelievable. Some thing has changed him from being objective to becoming very radical against President Trump. Is it money or the promise of political advantage?
