FBI’s Mar-a-Lago search was sparked over national security concerns
Don Lemon Tonight
Aug 10, 2022

The FBI's unprecedented search of former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home happened because investigators believed Trump and his aides were withholding federal materials, including classified documents with potential national security implications, a source tells CNN. Former Assistant Special Watergate Prosecutor Nick Ackerman and Former Homeland Security official Olivia Troye, join to discuss where the investigation could lead next and the reactions of Senior Republicans, including former Vice President Mike Pence, to the search warrant.

Plus, Republicans slam the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago search, the FBI seizes Trump ally Rep. Scott Perry’s phone, both Wisconsin GOP primary gubernatorial candidates embrace Trump’s baseless 2020 election fraud claims and extremists post violent rhetoric on social media after the FBI’s search of Trump’s home.
