Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi warned that the Justice Department may be trying to corrupt a jury by disclosing a photograph of classified documents found at former President Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago resort.

She agreed when Fox News host Sean Hannity asked on Wednesday if the photo, an exhibit included in prosecutors’ response to Trump’s special master request, was meant to “taint” public opinion and a jury if there is an indictment against the former president.

“This was made to taint a jury and to taint public perception of him,” Bondi said before insisting this is part of a yearslong effort to damage Trump politically.

“They have been doing this for seven years, and they are getting desperate. The midterms are coming up, then 2024,” she added. “They are at the end of their rope, and they are doing anything they can to hurt him.”

Bondi was attorney general of Florida from 2011 to 2019 and later served as a defense lawyer for Trump during his first impeachment trial.

The photo shows a series of documents on a carpeted floor, some with “secret” or “top secret” marked on them. A box with a framed copy of Time magazine Trump was on the cover of can also be seen in the photograph. Trump’s legal team criticized prosecutors in a filing Wednesday for “gratuitously” including the photograph of “allegedly classified materials, pulled from a container and spread across the floor for dramatic effect” in its filing on Tuesday as part of the special master dispute.

Alina Habba, an attorney for Trump who was also on the panel, surmised that the FBI staged the photo to make it look like the former president’s office at his Florida residence is messy.

“It is just a joke,” she said. “They literally must have gone in and taken out documents they wanted or cover letters as it is and put it about so that the public believes this is top secret documents that were on his floor. It’s ridiculous. I can tell you personally it’s ridiculous. I’ve never seen that.”
