DOJ Says Lego Model NOT FInished
[Epoch Times] The Department of Justice has retracted its claim that it seized a "fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set" from an accused Jan. 6 Capitol breacher.
In an memorandum asking a court to order Robert Morss be held pending trial, prosecutors claimed that law enforcement officials "recover[ed] a fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set" while arresting the defendant.
But in a supplemental motion, authorities said that they erred in conveying that claim.
"Please note that after a review of the photographs from the search, there appears to have been a miscommunication and that statement appears to be inaccurate. The Lego set was in a box and not fully constructed at the time of the search, as pictured below," they wrote.
The photograph shows a box with a picture of the Capitol on the front. Some prosecutor's first day on the job?
Should be their last
Morss and other breachers ultimately entered the Capitol through a broken window, footage showed.
Prosecutors allege that he would pose a danger to the community and present a flight risk if released.
Is he going to use his Lego airplane?
A hearing on whether to allow Morss's release is scheduled for July 13.
