Trump tried to attack the FBI but instead admitted that he had the classified docs and knowledge of them the whole time.
Trump posted on Truth Social:
They took out the documents that our lawyers said we didn’t have and took pictures of them. https://t.co/C3jk5EGeSl

Trump is admitting that he lied to the federal government about turning over all of the documents. His lawyer lied in writing about turning over all of the documents. The classified materials were not planted, and the classified files were stored in his office/on his property.
Donald Trump is suggesting that the FBI is trying to frame him with a photo of illegal materials that he had in his position.
If the former president had good lawyers, they would have told him to stop talking long ago. However, Trump believes he is more intelligent than his lawyers and has always been able to wiggle off the hook in the past, so it is easy to understand why he might think he can do it again.
Every time Trump opens his mouth, he provides more evidence against himself and digs the hole deeper. DOJ is wise not to announce any potential indictment of Trump until after election day because Trump could confess everything by November if he is allowed to continue talking.
Trump doesn’t realize it, but his continued postings only worsen things.
