[Note: we recorded this episode before Attorney General Merrick Garland gave a statement about the warrant the FBI received to search Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago.
In the statement, Garland said the Department of Justice has filed a motion to unseal that warrant and the property receipt. As of right now, we don’t know if Trump will support or oppose that motion, but it will be up to a federal judge to decide either way.]
