Mar-a-Lago flood draws attention of prosecutors in Trump documents case
Sources exclusively tell CNN that an employee at former President Trump’s Florida resort drained the resort’s swimming pool last October which flooded a room that held computer servers containing surveillance video logs. At least one witness was asked about this incident by prosecutors as part of the federal investigation into the former President’s handling of classified documents. While it's unclear if the room was intentionally flooded or if it happened by mistake, the incident occurred amid a series of events that federal prosecutors found suspicious. Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe joins AC360 to discuss the new development and why he thinks the Department of Justice is investigating possible obstruction by the former President.

On the tape, Trump acknowledges he held onto a classified Pentagon document about a potential attack on Iran. Conservative attorney George Conway tells Anderson Cooper this new revelation is “just another smoking gun in a smoking arsenal.”
