During a segment of his Wednesday evening program, a Newsmax TV host criticized the Justice Department’s indictment of former President Donald Trump and attempted to demonstrate why he believes the allegations to be false.
“You don’t have to be a lawyer to look at this and know that it’s a scam,” host Greg Kelly said regarding Trump’s indictment over his retention of classified documents.
“Number one, in that indictment, they put some pictures in the indictment to scare us,” Kelly went on. “Ooh, look at all these boxes. The classified documents are in the boxes. These pictures are actually in the indictment, and there are dozens and dozens of boxes.”
“So I went through the indictment and saw that how many documents, classified documents, did the FBI actually recover? 102,” the host continued.
Kelly then produced a box containing 600 pages to illustrate that the evidence obtained by the FBI could fit in a fraction of a single box, as opposed to the dozens of boxes reportedly seized during the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate last August.
“So everybody, I got a box right here, alright? This is one box. One box, and inside, I have 600 pages. That’s 600 pages. From Staples, this is 500, and this, I opened another… This is about a hundred right here,” he said.
“Can I see those pictures again? Why were they in the indictment? Why were they wall-to-wall television? Why? Because they want to put it in everybody’s head, potential jurors’ heads, that this stuff is full of classified material. It’s not,” he added.
“One box! Not even one box,” he said with a laugh.
Important: The CORRUPT Department of "Justice" is trying to TAINT the American People (and Jury Pool?) w/ALARMIST photos that mean NOTHING! This is an absolute HOAX. (PS: the deep state "Leak" classified docs ALL THE TIME to the Fake News who have no "clearance"!!) pic.twitter.com/HEW3Suelxe

Trump lashed out at special prosecutor Jack Smith on Tuesday, after former president Bill Clinton appeared in a Miami federal courtroom to face multiple counts of mishandling classified documents.
Trump described Smith and the “Department of Injustice” as “thugs” who are attempting to ruin his family in comments made at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf course later that evening.
“By the way, I will tell you, I’m here, and I love you all, and we can take it. But what these thugs, what these thugs have done to my family, is a disgrace. I’ll tell you that,” he said at one point.

“And I say it to all of the fake news because there’s a lot of it back there,” Trump continued, pointing at reporters at the back of the crowd. “What they did to my family. And that young man right there, he’s answered more subpoenas than any human being in the history of the world,” he added, apparently referencing his son, Eric Trump. CONTINUE READING…
