The Washington Post reports classified documents related to nuclear weapons were among items the FBI sought at Trump's home. Former director of national intelligence James Clapper joins to discuss the normal protocols followed for storing such highly sensitive data, and the question of why a former president would need such closely guarded secrets after leaving office.

Plus, The Attorney General breaks his silence on the Mar-a-Lago search, saying he personally approved the search warrant and will not stand by silently as the FBI’s integrity is unfairly attacked. Former assistant attorney general Tom Dupree and former FBI counter espionage chief Peter Strzok, join to discuss Merrick Garland’s decision to unseal the search warrant of Trump's home, and his extraordinary public statement on the nuances of the investigation. And, a man who tried to breach the FBI's Cincinnati office armed with an AR-15-style rifle and a nail gun, is killed during the ensuing standoff.
