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.

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.

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.

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.

WASHINGTON, Aug 13 (Reuters) - The seizure of classified U.S. government documents from Donald Trump's sprawling Mar-a-Lago retreat spotlights the ongoing national security concerns presented by the former president, and the home he dubbed the Winter White House, some security experts say. read moreAs president, Trump sometimes shared information, regardless of its sensitivity. The Justice Department’s search warrant raises concerns about national security, said former DOJ official Mary McCord. "Even just retention of highly classified documents in improper storage - particularly given Mar-a-Lago, the foreign visitors there and others who might have connections with foreign governments and foreign agents - creates a significant national security threat." "It's a nightmarish environment for a careful handling of highly classified information," said a former U.S. intelligence officer.

Not everyone can access classified documents, but the President can grant access through executive order. Trump could theoretically give Russian President Vladimir Putin a security clearance, a lawyer speculated in 2019. Most officials working with the government must have security clearances as well as a reason to access documents restricted by the government. However, a Top Secret clearance does not mean an official has access to all of the government's highest classified information. Trump could have theoretically given Russian President Vladimir Putin a security clearance during his time as president, Mark Zaid, a national security lawyer, told NPR in 2019.
