OF THE POWER GRID? >> ALL RIGHT, JOHN, WE APPRECIATE THE ANALYSIS, AS ALWAYS. THANK YOU. MEANWHILE, MORE CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS HAVE BEEN FOUND AT A STORAGE UNIT USED BY FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP. THE DISCOVERY CAME AFTER A FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERED TRUMP TO DO A MORE THOROUGH SEARCH OF HIS PROPERTIES. ABC'S SENIOR INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER AARON KATERSKY JOINS ME LIVE NOW FOR MORE ON THIS. AARON, HOW SIGNIFICANT IS THIS DISCOVERY? >> THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT DISCOVERY BECAUSE IT RAISES THE QUESTION OF WHETHER THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT HAS RECOVERED ALL THE CLASSIFIED MATERIALS THAT TRUMP OR HIS AIDES TOOK FROM THE WHITE HOUSE AND MOVED DOWN TO FLORIDA, WHERE THIS STORAGE UNIT WAS LOCATED.
