Ari Melber highlighted the fact that Bill Barr is pounding Trump over the Mar-A-Lago nuclear documents.

"There's reporting that the fed seized documents about the nuclear capabilities of foreign nations which they say Trump was holding illegally, as well as intelligence about a foreign country's nuclear readiness. There is also material that U.S. operations are so secret, top security officials don't even have it, according to the Washington Post reporting," Melber said.

The issue is more than the law. It is about whether ex-government officials put the U.S. in danger by abusing the access to the materials they once legitimately had. National security veterans speaking out on the latest nuclear news."

This is quite shocking.

It does not make any sense to me at all. This is potentially profoundly damaging.

If I had those in my house after leaving office, I would be in handcuffs by this time. So it, the Justice Department has gone out of its way to show deference to the former president.

"This new Post report which so many officials describe as shocking or worse does not distinguish or say what classification level those nuclear documents were. The wider legal heat on Trump is getting the attention of his own former attorney general. If you're counting, Bill Barr has now made two notable newsworthy appearances on Fox News, a channel that is known to be watched by many Republicans, Trump fans and the president and his circle for sure.

"Mr. Barr has gone on there absolutely hammering his former boss, rebuking the legal strategy in this case and then today suggesting the Justice Department that he once led is getting very close to indicting Donald Trump."

Yeah. I think as I've said all along, there are two questions. Will the government be able to make out a technical case? Will they have evidence that they could indict somebody on, including him? And that's the first question. And I think they're getting close to that point, frankly.
