4:02 am
shepard smith. good evening. the classified documents stashed at mar-a-lago were so sensitive that the fbi feared in the wrong hands, they could expose human intelligence sources. in other words, spies who were helping the united states, and the feds needed to get those documents back, and fast that is just one of the big revelations from the newly released affidavit from the search of the former presidents florida home. it lays out the fbi's justification for taking such drastic, unprecedented action. it is heavily redacted but does provide new insight. the affidavit describes the federal government month-long battle to retrieve the trove of classified material that mr. trump took with him to mar-a lago when he left office. some of those documents were at the highest levels of classification possible. the kind of documents that need to be stored in a supersecret government facility, not in a private resort club. the affidavit reveals the justice department he came alarmed back in january, when
4:03 am
mr. trump turned over 15 boxes of documents over months of government pressure. in those boxes, the fbi found 184 documents with classification marking, 25 of them marked top-secret and the feds knew that mr. trump still had more classified material stashed away at mar-a-lago, according to the affidavit. in the request for the search, fbi agents told the judge there was probable cause to believe mr. trump still possessed classified national security documents that he was refusing to give back. the feds said there was also probable cause to believe they can find criminal -- evidence of criminal obstruction during the search. the big questions that remain are, why did mr. trump want these documents? what were these documents all about, and why did mr. trump insist on keeping them, even when the government demanded them back? we will have analysis from a
4:04 am
former federal prosecutor. >> the doj said that they had to redact all that information to protect the multiple people helping it as well as the investigation, itself point in a separate filing that was also unsealed today, the justice department cited the safety and privacy of a significant number of witnesses and law enforcement personnel who said they could face intimidation, harassment, even threats to their physical safety is identified. the justice department also warned that the affidavit is complete with details that can provide a road map for abstract information. the fbi was worried that if someone of this information became public people might try to flee. trump dismissed this news as a political attack. a newly released letter from his attorney shows they argue that trump demonstrated good faith in turning over those 15 boxes of paper back in january.
4:05 am
they also claim he has the authority to declassify information on the law prohibiting the removal of those classified documents does not apply to him. today, president biden said it's up to the doj to determine if there was a national security risk at mar-a-lago but that he has a special place at his home in delaware for sensitive material like his daily briefing. >> i have in my home a space that is completely secure. i'm hoping to take him today -- >> today they're asking for a damage assessment of any mishandled information at mar-a- lago. danielle. now, former district attorney for the attorney general of new
4:06 am
york. the doj mentioned there is a significant number of civilian witnesses they want to protect. what should we read from that? >> i think it is notable, because this was a case where doj was not going to be satisfied, was not going to barrel in there without overwhelming proof that in fact, there were national security documents on the premises. we have heard in public recording about some of the evidence that doj had, including surveillance video, including having meetings with strom's lawyers. know what we are hearing is in fact, they had a number of witnesses who surely have first-hand information that in fact, not all of the secure documents or the documents that should have been secured were returned back in january of this year. so, it is significant because i think there are multiple
4:07 am
witnesses. they are not your typical law-enforcement witnesses who you could argue are biased. these are people who have come forward and are clearly insiders and in trump's inner circle, and they felt compelled or were in fact compelled to provide this information to support the affidavit. >> in reading this affidavit, does it look to you like the justice department exhausted all other options before seeking the search? >> of course, a lot of it is rejected and so we don't have all the information of what doj did, what steps it took, but that is one of the things that the federal magistrate judge would have had to satisfy himself, that all other steps were taken. so like i said, a lot of it has been redacted. we've heard public reporting about multiple meetings,
4:08 am
including a grand jury subpoena, including acquiring surveillance video from the premises, so all of that would have to be laid out in order to assure the judge that less intrusive means has been attempted and have failed. >> danya perry, thanks for your time tonight . it was a brutal day on wall street.every major index posting a sea of red. the dow closed down more than 1000 points, the worst day since mid june. s&p down 141. it is off more than 10% this year. the biggest loser, the nasdaq closed nearly 4%. the markets went into freefall after the fed chair, j powell, warmed more rate hikes are coming. today, he delivered a speech in jackson hole, wyoming. he said the fed will have to get
4:09 am
more aggressive to get the near record inflation under control, but he warns that will come at a cost >> there will very likely be some softening of labor market conditions while higher interest rates, slower growth and softer labor market conditions will bring down inflation, they will also bring some pain to households and businesses. these are the unfortunate costs of reducing inflation, but a failure to restore price stability would mean far greater pain. >> softening of labor market conditions. in people speak, jobs will be lost, people will be unemployed. fed officials have seen some encouraging signs that inflation is easing. the labor market reports consumer prices jumped 8.5% last month from a year ago. that is a hair lower than the 9.1% year-over-year in june. in a moment, cbcs dominic on the bloodbath.
4:10 am
first, steve liesman injected whole. >> it's hard to quantify, but there has been this lingering question. what would the fed do if we were really in a recession? normally if the economy declines meaningfully the fed starts to help people by cutting interest rates. they reacted very quickly when the pandemic hit ringing interest rates down to zero just a few weeks into the pandemic. powell said today sorry, folks, inflation is such a big problem were not going to be able to help out this time. he is saying the unemployment rate may go up. the economy may contract but the fed is going to have to keep raising rates or keep them high because the outcome will be worse if you let inflation
4:11 am
smolder. the markets got a sobering message today. there is a level of pain the fed is willing to take to fight inflation. >> some economists have said there have been recent signs that inflation has peaked. what is powell's view on that? >> some of the hottest items that have driven inflation, oil and gas, those prices are down. commodity prices are down and those declines are going to show up we think in the consumer price indices ready soon, and that the supermarkets obviously. but, it is not those prices that have spooked the spit fed. broad-based pricing throughout the economy is what has them worried. service prices are rising. housing pricing and personal care were standouts to the fed. the fed's message is pretty clear. not enough to stop the rate hike trained and one official yesterday told us that she needs to see three months at least of inflation coming down before she is confident that it is moving back toward their 2%
4:12 am
target. we use the number 8 1/2% before. two is the target. >> steve liesman live lesson jackson hole. let's turn to market correspondent, dominic chu. the s&p is down 4% on the week. do you see the markets retesting lows here? >> that is the key question right now and the reason why a lot of folks out there are trying to figure out whether today's down move is the precursor for something bigger, to retest those lows that we saw earlier this summer. to put all this in context, we are going to put the nasdaq and posit up there. the technology stock trade has been them epicenter of volatility. where we stand right now from the records that highs we saw last fall, we are down roughly about 25% from those record high levels. if you take a look at where we are from the lows here, we are
4:13 am
still up about 15%, so this is a territory where we are still in that so-called bear market, but we are not yet testing those lows, so the key will be whether or not some stability can be brought back. one place traders are keeping a close eye on is consumer trade and steve alluded to it in the previous segment.right now, everyone is watching inflation and whether the consumer spending picture can hold up .here is one chart that lays out how bad it has gotten for certain parts of the consumer market versus others. the white line is consumer discretionary stocks, the stuff we can buy, that we want to buy, not the stuff that we nee . meanwhile, the orange line up top is the consumer staples trade. cereal, toilet paper, dish soap, diapers. those companies have actually done pretty well given the market downtrend. they are still only down about 4% on the year versus a 22% client for those discretionary stocks and that gap is something a lot of traders going to be watching.
4:14 am
one place to keep a close eye on is the health of the overall economy. one thing that could tell you more about those prospects would come in the high-yield or junk yard bond market. these are companies that may not have the strength to weather an economic downtrend. watch this right-hand side, whether these companies and these bonds doers, that will tell us something about prospects for a recession down the line. >> we will see what monday brings. the nfl season kicks off in less than two weeks, but a disturbing new allegation is rattling one of the league's top teams. what we are learning about the player accused of a serious crime, and how he has responded. plus, criminals fleecing the u.s. government for hundreds of millions of dollars in covid relief money. what the secret service just did to get some of it back.

4:19 am
both men deny allegations. what separates araiza's case is the allegations are from his time before the nfl. >> because it happened before araiza was drafted before the bills, the nfl can do nothing about it under the personal conduct policy. if you would ever get in trouble in the future he could have expedited or enhanced punishment because of this. >> the bills have their final preseason game tonight. he is not playing. the girl's family has been in therapy for the last nine months. the secret service recovering $286 million in stolen covid relief money that was meant for struggling small businesses during the pandemic .officials say it is one of the largest financial crime investigations that the agency has ever undertaken. federal investigators say the thieves used thousands of stolen and fake identities to

4:21 am
big thing. third-party payment systems, but there is not an institution, even our traditional financial institutions, that were not targeted during the pandemic.>> advisories were sent out from the small business administration's office of inspector general to 30,000 financial institutions in early 2020 to layout fraud indicators and to encourage working together to catch these criminals. that led to green dot working with the agencies to recover these funds. further information on the suspects has not been released. investigations will likely last years due to the size and scope. criminal charges have not yet been announced. fraud has been rampant in pandemic aid programs. $87 billion of potentially fraudulent loans have been identified over the past two years. the secret service says it has seized over 1.4 billion in

4:32 am
jim free, the head of nasa's program to return humans to the moon. at first, how far we've come since the first apollo missions. things are a little more updated now. for example, this is the old apollo spacesuit, and here's the new version for artemis. these suits have cooling technology and can keep astronauts alive on their own for six days. the new orion capsule is bigger. four astronauts can fit inside. apollo could only hold three. ryan also has exercise equipment, even a compact toilet. nbc's tom costello spoke with both the artemis and apollo flight directors about how far we have come. >> reporter: step inside one of the most iconic symbols of america's space program, nassau's original mission control, restored as a museum down to the ashtray, rc cola can and slide rule. to that day in 1969 when apollo

4:34 am

4:36 am
create a permanent base on the moon. is the gold have astronauts of their 24/7? >> no, we would not. our goal is to get for four crew members down to the surface for 30 days. that is what we are planning because then we get the maximum use of the systems we eventually need to go on to mars. we need to test them in the partial gravity of the moon and then we are hoping that other international and commercial entities come with us to expand that base. they can use the base for their own purposes, but 30 days on the surface for four people is our goal. >> there have been some cost overruns and scheduling delays in the artemis program, but assuming all goes well with this mission, how comfortable are you that they will have astronauts back on the moon, let's say within three or four years. >> if we do well on this mission and the chief those objectives, we will be able to get there. we are hoping our target for a
4:37 am
crew on the moon is 2025 and in between now and then, we will slay a crew around the moon, much like apollo 8, to test out the vehicle with crew in it before we try to go down to the lunar surface, so our target is 2025 we have tested this vehicle on the ground as much as we can, and our next step is to really put it in orbit and put it through its paces there and the next time get it ready for crew. head jim free, cannot wait to watch it all happen. thanks so much for your time tonight, and good luck. an american city, a citizen fighting in ukraine has died. that today from the state department. officials have not identified the victim but say they are in touch with the family. the state department has urged americans to get out of ukraine immediately. meantime, europe's largest nuclear power plant in ukraine back on the power grid and
