8:17 pm
a federal court to release the warrant calling it's a matter of public interest. i'm involved report. he's described the f. b, i search of his florida state oven, an american unwarranted and unnecessary and breaking. but donald trump says he's encouraging the release of the warrant, even though it was drawn up by what he describes as radical left democrats and possible future political opponents. the request to unsealed the warrant is array or move by the us justice department. good afternoon. and according to the attorney general, that's because trump himself disclosed the search. i personally approve the decision to seek a search warrant in this matter. second, the department does not take such a decision lightly where possible in a standard practice to seek less intrusive means as an alternative to a search and to narrowly scope, any search that is undertaken. if the motion is granted,
8:18 pm
the water will be made public and could reveal what investigators were looking for . its reportedly connected to allegations, the former president removed sensitive files from the white house search warrants usually to main last fight during offending investigation. let's say the public interest is mounting along with fear the violent responses from some of the far away supporters, claiming that things may have been planted by the f b. i. and extraordinary allegations that matter what the circumstances out with donald trump, no matter what he has done, he is always able to present himself as the victim. on thursday, an armed men tried to breach and f b. i field office assistant who was shot and killed in a stand off with a police pulse on trump social media platform from an account bearing the suspects name mentioned the attempt to storm the f. b i office and encouraged others to

8:20 pm
that the judge has to rule on. he could decide simply to unseal the warrant and not unseal the affidavit which led to the warrant. he could also decide to unseal all the documents involved. this is what the department of justice is asked whether or not the judge complies, that's another matter. so we now waiting to hear from trump's lawyers who will have to respond by 3 o'clock to the department of justice and they can either say yay or nay. are completely separate from what donald trump has already said, that he's quite happy for all the documents to be released of he might hannah live for us in washington, d. c. thank you. many lebanese people are calling a man who held employees hostage at a bank in bay root a hero. he was trying to withdraw his own money to pay his father's medical bills. he surrendered peacefully to police after 7. our stand off on thursday. people accused the banking system in lebanon, of misusing funds. in the hood,
