"Bobb said that she was not allowed to observe the search, as is common during such FBI operations. But Trump and his lawyers have seized on that fact to push a conspiracy theory that the FBI may have "planted" something without providing any evidence to support their claims.
Defense attorney Ken White noted that forbidding anyone from observing their searches is standard practice.
"Law enforcement does not let anyone, including lawyers, observe what they're doing during searches," he wrote.
"They typically remove everyone from the searched area. This has always been the case. This is the latest 'it's an outrage when the typical happens to me.'".
Former federal prosecutor Michael Stern suggested that TrumpWorld is trotting out the claim because the FBI may have found damaging evidence at his home.
"I have written hundreds of search warrants. Lawyers and people whose homes are being searched are routinely not present during the search," he wrote.
"That Trump is now talking about 'planted' evidence means he knows there is something damning they found."
The thread link shows this is all over Fox Gnus now... Rand Paul, Nutty Newty, et al.
Stern is right, though. Donald's Backpack Theory is a pre-emptive strike to counter evidence he knows they must have found.
