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.

Scott Perry, an ally of former President Donald Trump, is apparently a key figure in the probe.

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 General Staff of Ukraine's armed forces also reported Russian shelling of more than a dozen towns on the southern front - particularly the Kherson region, mainly controlled by Russian forces, but where Ukrainian troops are steadily capturing territory. Ukrainian forces controlling the towns and cities on the opposite bank have come under intense bombardment from the Russian-held side. Ukraine's military command said early on Sunday that Russian soldiers had continued unsuccessfully to attack Ukrainian positions near Avdiivka, which, since 2014, has become one of the outposts of Ukrainian forces near Donetsk.

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.

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.

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.

Tens of thousands of people in Michigan were issued a precautionary boil water advisory Saturday after authorities discovered a water break in Metro Detroit’s largest main supply line. “Residents must bring all water to a boil for at least one minute and then let it cool before using. “Our top priority right now is protecting the public health and safety of Michigan residents until this water main is fixed as quickly as possible,” she said in a statement. An advisory is declared if the water pressure falls below 20psi, it said. The cause of the water break was unknown and was being further investigated, the GWLA said, adding that the advisory would remain in effect until the water is verified safe for consumption.

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.
