Brad and Dan begin by going through the nuts and bolts related to the FBI’s search of Trump’s residence–what it requires to get a warrant, who had to sign off on it, and what it means that the GOP has no faith in the process or belief in the rule of law.
They then examine the reactions to the search from MAGA Nation, followers of QAnon, and influential right-wing politicians, pundits, and influencers. The overall tone: This means the next civil war. Unfortunately, the consequences are already being manifest–yesterday a man tried to enter an FBI facility in Cincinnati and was killed in a standoff with law enforcement.
The last segment examines the revelations that the FBI’s search centered on classified information related to nuclear plans, weapons, and/or secrets. Brad lays out the case that this could be related to the billions of dollars Trump officials (including Jared Kushner) have received from the Saudi family. Dan argues it could be as simple as Trump wanting to show off to old golfing buddies.
