Unsealed document in Mar-a-Lago search sharpens focus on Trump as possible subject of criminal probe
Anderson Cooper 360
Aug 19, 2022

A judge unsealed several court documents related to the FBI’s search of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort and set in motion the possible public release of a heavily redacted version of the affidavit. Former federal judge Nancy Gertner joins AC360 to discuss the judge’s decision and says it’s “very surprising.”

Plus, the former President and his allies have claimed there was a “standing order” to declassify documents he took from the Oval Office to the White House residence but CNN spoke to 18 former Trump administration officials who said they never heard of that policy. One senior administration official called it “bullsh*t.” Former Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton was one of the 18 officials CNN spoke with. He explains to Anderson Cooper if the “standing order” existed, it’d make “no sense whatsoever.”
