The FBI just goofed in a really bad way. That “fully constructed” U.S. Capitol Lego set in the possession of Trump supporter Robert Morss, used by prosecutors to show how much of a threat the social studies teacher is, was never put together. Their own evidence proves it is still in the box. That means that it could not have been used as a “model” to plan the invasion ahead of time as the Federal Bureau of Instigation mislead the court to believe.
FBI invents evidence as they go
Antifa® inspired Black Lives Matter™ rebel forces who burn down police stations, loot, pillage, plunder, and generally create violent mayhem are out on bail, usually at no cost to the criminal, within hours of arrest.
That’s when they accidentally do get arrested. On the other hand, any deplorable Trump supporter who managed to wander into the Capitol Building on January 6 is such a threat to society that they must remain behind bars until trial. Even if the FBI has to manufacture the evidence to do it.
Since Carter Page’s case proved that the FBI can lie as much as they want, even forge evidence to use in court — and not suffer a single consequence — they all started doing it.
When the Department of Justice wanted to keep alleged insurrectionist Robert Morss in a cell, they turned the substitute teacher into a criminal mastermind on paper with a single line. It was a lie. When the whole country went spastic over a box of Lego, the DOJ admitted they made it up. They still don’t want to let Morss out on bail though. He might talk to reporters or something.

Prosecutors with the Department of Injustice are blaming miscommunication with the FBI for lying to the court about how violent one of the alleged insurrection suspects is. They told the judge responsible for granting or denying freedom to Mr. Morss that he was “found to be in possession of a “fully constructed” LEGO set depicting the U.S. Capitol.
Without coming out and saying so, they make it sound like he called all his friends together so they could use little action figures to plan an invasion of the building to restore Donald Trump to power, through a use of overwhelming force. They lied. They admit they lied. They still want Morss to stay in jail though.
Capitol Invasion play-set
The Department of Justice used information supplied to them from the FBI to file official documents with the court on July 2. The public learned what was in them when the network media started making a huge deal out of the alleged Capitol Invasion play-set.
The DOJ wrote that during “his arrest, law enforcement recovered some clothing and other items that appear to match those he carried with him on the 6th – including a ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ flag, a neck gaiter, a military utility bag, a black tourniquet, and military fatigues. Law enforcement also recovered a fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set. In addition, MORSS had three different firearms including a handgun, a shotgun, and a rifle.”
The FBI clearly “insinuated Morss used the toy to plan the Capitol riot.” Prosecutors “didn’t say whether Morss used his toy to help plan the Capitol insurrection,” the Daily Beast wrote, “as if a toy model was akin to architectural blueprints.”
The DOJ is trying to have it both ways, arguing that Trump “incited” the incident but also that it was “pre-planned.”
After all the backlash, the DOJ went back to court and blamed the FBI for misleading them. “In the original detention memoranda,” the responsible lawyer humbly admits, “the undersigned stated that law enforcement found a ‘fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set.’ 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.”
That’s a big oops. Since they can’t use the Lego, the only leg they have to stand on is the fact they charged Morss with “robbery” because that’s automatically considered a “crime of violence.”
