White House officials are telling CNN they have “deep concern” about the documents found at former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Some documents were found in a basement-level storage facility at Trump’s Florida home and officials worry the information they contain could put the sources and methods of the U.S. intelligence community at risk. Tom Blanton is the director at the National Security Archive at George Washington University. He joins AC360 to discuss how dangerous it was to have these documents in a storeroom without a padlock on it.

Plus, with midterm elections around the corner, vulnerable Republicans are being told to not be distracted by the former President while on the campaign trail with one saying “I don’t say his name, ever.” CNN Senior Political Commentator David Axelrod tells Anderson Cooper whether he thinks that strategy will work for these candidates in November.
