Attorney General Merrick Garland is a decent man, and he said the right things in his statement regarding the search of Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago: “All Americans are entitled to the evenhanded application of the law, to due process of the law, and to the presumption of innocence.”It is what he didn’t say that raises disturbing questions about the process. Why didn’t the Justice Department seek to enforce the subpoena it apparently had issued, rather than seek a search warrant? Was this consistent with the “standard practice” Mr. Garland articulated in his statement—“to seek less intrusive alternatives to a search” whenever possible?

WASHINGTON—The FBI’s search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property dealt with the Justice Department’s most urgent priority in the monthslong showdown, according to officials, which was retrieving classified information. Investigators are now pursuing the next steps of the department’s criminal investigation into the handling of national security material and presidential records, a process that may take many months to play out, and will be shaped by several factors.

The DOJ is investigating efforts to overturn the 2020 election and confiscated Rep. Scott Perry's phone. Rep. Adam Schiff said the seizure suggests the department views the fake elector's scheme as criminal. The DOJ is investigating Republican efforts to overturn the 2020 election and Rep. Scott Perry, an ally of former President Donald Trump, is apparently a key figure in the probe. Perry has said he introduced Trump to Jeffrey Clark, a Justice Department official who believed the election was inaccurate. Perry called the seizure of his phone an "abuse of power" on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."

Phil Mudd said threats against law enforcement resemble the period leading up to the Capitol attack. Threats have escalated as Republicans lash out against the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago. Mudd appeared on CNN Sunday to discuss the aftermath of the unprecedented FBI raid on former President Donald Trump's residence. The man was also believed to have been at the Capitol on January 6, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press. The Justice Department is investigating possible violations of three laws related to the handling of government documents, including the Espionage Act.

Ron Johnson said he thought Mar-a-Lago was "a pretty safe place" for top-secret documents. "So no, I'm not overly concerned about some top-secret information getting leaked out," he said. Johnson, who sits on the Senate's homeland security and foreign relations committees, added that he is "always concerned" about classified documents but thought there was no cause for worry with the documents in Trump's hands. The FBI took 11 sets of classified documents — some of which were reportedly marked top secret and concerned nuclear weapons — from Mar-a-Lago after executing a search warrant on the property last Monday. For his part, the former president has not denied a Washington Post report that the FBI searched his Mar-a-Lago home for classified documents that contained nuclear information.

WASHINGTON/DUBAI, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Whether or not Tehran and Washington accept a European Union "final" offer to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, neither is likely to declare the pact dead because keeping it alive serves both sides' interests, diplomats, analysts and officials said. "We are in no rush," said a senior Iranian official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Therefore, time is not of the essence for Iran," said a second senior Iranian official. read moreDANGLINGThe lack of better policy options for Washington, and Tehran's view that time is on its side, could leave the deal dangling. "It is unclear whether Iranian leaders have decided not to revive the deal or have not made a definitive decision, but either way, continuing this limbo period likely serves their interests," Rome said.

REUTERS/Lisa LeutnerAug 15 (Reuters) - Iran and the United States are struggling to overcome divisions on three major issues in indirect talks on revival of a 2015 nuclear deal while months of negotiations have entered a crucial stage. Grossi said more than 40 IAEA cameras would keep operating as part of the core monitoring in Iran that predates the 2015 deal. But President Joe Biden cannot promise this because the nuclear deal is a non-binding political understanding, not a legally-binding treaty. Many Republican senators detest the nuclear pact and even some Democrats oppose it. IRAN'S ELITE GUARDSThe broad outline of the revived deal was essentially agreed in March after 11 months of talks in Vienna.

Fox News host Eric Shawn asked if Trump tried to sell the classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago. He wondered if Trump tried to "sell or share" documents "to the Russians" or "the Saudis." Shawn's speculation comes amid Trump's growing ire against Fox News programs like "Fox & Friends." Did former President Trump try to sell or share the highly classified material to the Russians or to the Saudis, or others?" Separately, Doocy told House GOP chair Elise Stefanik that the FBI's raid was "kind of a big deal" given that agents were looking to retrieve classified documents "related to nuclear weapons."

The FBI and DHS have reported a spike in threats against federal agents after the Mar-a-Lago raid. They also warned in a joint bulletin of an increase in calls for "civil war" and "armed rebellion." In a joint bulletin, first reported by ABC News' Aaron Katersky, both agencies referenced a recent spike in violent threats against federal law enforcement officials and even the federal judge who issued the warrant for the search. It added that domestic extremists might use the 2022 midterm election as an "additional flashpoint" to escalate threats against law enforcement and their "perceived ideological opponents," per CBS. In similar incidents over the weekend, right-wing media outlet Breitbart News and a former Trump aide were separately accused of doxxing two FBI agents who were involved in the Mar-a-Lago search.

George Conway said the DOJ's probe of documents found at Mar-a-Lago could land Trump in jail. On CNN, Conway called the probe the "shortest distance between Trump and an orange jumpsuit." "I think the shortest distance between Donald Trump and an orange jumpsuit is this investigation with the documents," Conway said. When asked by Acosta why he thought Trump was holding on to those documents, Conway suggested there was "no valid reason." In a separate interview on CNN on Saturday, Conway also slammed those defending Trump, calling them "basically desperate."

Let’s be clear: this is the direct result of irresponsible, inflammatory rhetoric demonizing law enforcement from right-wing politicians and commentators."

Donald Trump arrives at Trump Tower the day after FBI agents raided his Mar-a-Lago Palm Beach home, in New York City, U.S., August 9, 2022. A search warrant released last week after the unprecedented search showed that Trump had 11 sets of classified documents at his home, and that the Justice Department had probable cause to conduct the search based on possible Espionage Act violations. "The Justice Department should "show that this was not just a fishing expedition, that they had due cause to go in and to do this, that they did exhaust all other means," Rounds said. The Department of Justice did respond to a request for comment on the FBI affidavit. "This is going to be up to the Justice Department to make a decision about what happened here, why it happened, and if it rises to the level of a crime," Klobuchar said.

When the FBI submitted a search warrant seeking classified information in the Florida home of former President Donald Trump, the magistrate judge on duty in Palm Beach County was unavailable. So another magistrate judge, Bruce Reinhart , stepped in to handle the request, as is typical. Judge Reinhart approved the warrant on Aug. 5, finding that the Federal Bureau of Investigation established probable cause that there was evidence of crime—an action that has kicked off a series of unprecedented events and put the judge at the center of a political firestorm.

The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security have issued an unclassified joint intelligence bulletin warning of a spike in threats to federal law enforcement officials since the search of former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-lago club in Florida, two senior law enforcement officials told NBC News. “The FBI and DHS have observed an increase in threats to federal law enforcement and to a lesser extent other law enforcement and government officials following the FBI’s recent execution of a search warrant in Palm Beach, Florida," the bulletin, dated Friday, reads, according to one official. Pro-Trump internet forums erupted with violent threats and calls for civil war in the hours and days after the Mar-a-Lago search. An incident in which a man fired a nail gun into the FBI Cincinnati field office is cited in the FBI and DHS bulletin as one of the attacks on federal law enforcement, the law enforcement officials said. The man, who was identified by two law enforcement sources as Ricky Shiffer, died in a confrontation with police.

He said it was "most disturbing" that Trump continued to hold the classified documents after the Justice Department sought their return.

WASHINGTON—In the final weeks of the Trump administration, the West Wing started to empty out. White House trade adviser Peter Navarro was spotted carting away a framed photograph of the U.S. and Chinese presidents facing off. The chief of staff’s wife was seen packing a stuffed bird into her car. President Donald Trump remained preoccupied with overturning his November 2020 election loss. He spent his last days meeting with lawyers, plotting how to settle scores with Republicans who voted to impeach him after the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol and negotiating over pardons with his advisers, former aides said.

Mastriano and Oz have not made any firm commitment to campaign together or host joint fundraisers. "It’s an awkward marriage," Morgan Boyd, a Republican county commissioner in Lawrence County, which went for Trump by 30 points in 2020, said of Mastriano and Oz. The official said the RNC had worked more closely with the Oz campaign but described its efforts as "business as usual" so far. In June, the Oz campaign told The Associated Press that Oz "supports the Republican ticket in Pennsylvania" and "looks forward to seeing (Mastriano) out on the trail this summer." And that’s OK.

Sources told NBC News that in the last days of Trump's presidency aides rushed to pack up documents. One source said Trump didn't seriously start preparing to exit the White House until after January 6. But, given the recovery of additional classified documents on Monday, the report raised questions about how cooperative and forthcoming the former president and his team have been with investigators. Trump's office did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment. During his four years in office, Trump developed a reputation for being flippant with presidential records, which are required by law to be preserved.

The FBI recovered 11 boxes of classified documents during the Mar-a-Lago raid, court documents say. Mary Trump, a vocal critic of her uncle, said she thinks Jared Kushner may have been the informant. The host asked her who she thinks could be the "Mar-a-Lago mole" after reports said the FBI was tipped off by an informant close to the former president. Cohen, who has also become a vocal Trump critic, said. Newsweek reported two government officials with knowledge of the raid said a person informed law enforcement there were certain documents at Mar-a-Lago.

Laufman also said the discovery of the documents during the FBI's search "completely validates the government's investigation" into the former President.

Ricky Shiffer was killed after trying to breach an FBI field office in Cincinnati. An extremism researcher says the gunman who tried to breach an Ohio FBI field office was inspired by far-right groups and rhetoric who push conspiracy theories that can get those who ascribe to their beliefs killed. Jon Lewis, a research fellow at the Program on Extremism at George Washington University, told Insider that the gunman's actions were, unfortunately, not surprising. "They're picking up guns and they're going to FBI field offices and I think that that should be a massive concern," he said. On Thursday, after Shiffer tried to attack the field office, he took law enforcement on a car chase where he was fatally shot after raising a gun.
