WATCH: Jack Smith Admits To Evidence Tampering In Bombshell Court Filing

Special Counsel Jack Smith’s team is admitting that crucial evidence in former President Donald Trump’s classified documents case was altered or manipulated after it was seized by the FBI. Smith’s team has further admitted that the court was misled for a period of time.

In a legal filing released Friday, Smith’s team quietly admitted that the order of documents in some of the boxes that were seized from Mar-A-Lago was altered or jumbled. This ultimately left two different chronologies: one that was digitally scanned and another the physical order in the boxes.

“Since the boxes were seized and stored, appropriate personnel have had access to the boxes for several reasons, including to comply with orders issued by this Court in the civil proceedings noted above, for investigative purposes, and to facilitate the defendants’ review of the boxes,” Smith’s team wrote.

“There are some boxes where the order of items within that box is not the same as in the associated scans,” the filing continued.

In a footnote, Smith’s team quietly admitted that it had misled U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon’s courtroom about the problem by previously claiming that the evidence had remained in its original state after it was seized.

“The Government acknowledges that this is inconsistent with what Government counsel previously understood and represented to the Court,” the footnote said.

The organization of the boxes is expected to be central to Trump’s legal defense in the case. Trump’s legal team has argued that the documents were stored in the White House in chronological order on the days that Trump received them, and that his staff simply sent them to his home without accessing them or having any knowledge that they contained classified information.

In a previous disclosure, it was revealed that the federal government had shipped several pallets containing “document boxes” from the Trump Administration to the former president’s   Mar-a-Lago estate a full year before the raid.

According to an article published by The Federalist, two out of six pallets designated for movement were sent from an Arlington, Virginia facility directly to Mar-a-Lago. The move was part of a larger operation that involved transferring items necessary to wind down the Office of the Former President, as well as items that were the property of the federal government.
