The Story Attorney General Merrick Garland has [spoken out]( about the search at Mar-a-Lago. Tell me. He said the Justice Department filed a motion to unseal the search warrant so that itâs accessible to the public. It's something former President Trump is [now calling for](. Reminder: This was the warrant that allowed the FBI to raid Trumpâs Palm Beach home earlier this week. Itâs still unclear why the FBI executed the search warrant. But [a new report]( alleges they were looking for classified documents relating to nuclear weapons. What else did Garland say? That he âpersonally approvedâ the FBIâs request for a search warrant. And that although he canât speak on ongoing investigations, he wanted to unseal the warrant because of âsubstantial public interestâ in this case. (Read: virtually the [entire Republican Party]( speaking out against it.) Garland also condemned those who have criticized the "professionalism" of the FBI and DOJ, and he said he would not tolerate attacks on the FBI as an institution. The announcement comes amid physical threats against the FBI, too. What do you mean? Yesterday, an armed suspect tried to [breach]( the FBI field office in Cincinnati, OH. The suspect was killed during a standoff with police. But was armed carrying a nail gun and [AR-15](. theSkimm Never before in US history has the FBI raided the residence of a former president. Now, Americans are [once again divided]( when it comes to President Trump. And many are ready to get to the bottom of the DOJ's investigation.

[The Inflation Reduction Act](. Today, the House is set to vote on a $700 billion package that promises to do everything from lowering energy bills and [prescription drug costs]( to fighting climate change. It also aims to lower the [deficit]( by...drum roll, please...raising taxes on large corporations making over $1 billion. Despite having âInflationâ in its name, the bill will not lower food or gas prices, at a time when grocery bills are at the highest [in decades](. Some are skeptical that the legislation will lower inflation at all. Tt was one of the reasons why every single Senate Republican voted against it last weekend. And why most Republicans donât plan to support it today. But it's still expected to pass the House and then head to President Bidenâs desk. PS: We spoke with PBS News correspondent Lisa Desjardins about how the act will impact everyday Americans. [Tune in](.

[Metaâs chatbot](. Last week, Facebookâs parent company released BlenderBot 3, an AI chatbot. By being fed a massive data set of...well, the internet...Facebookâs chatbot can respond somewhat clearly to questions people pose. Turns out, that includes spitting out answers like Facebook âexploits peopleâ and that it âhas a lot of fake news.â The chatbot has also reportedly spewed anti-Semitic messages. Oh and Facebook itself says whether itâs safe âremains an open problem.â But Facebook hasnât shut it down yet, saying itâs keeping the AI publicly available for research purposes. Ok then.

Yesterday, a study found that itâs warming four times faster than the rest of the planet â twice as fast as previous estimates. Problem, because the Arctic temps cause sea levels to rise and can also influence weather in the US. The news comes as the US and Europe have been experiencing [record heat waves](. And as the US gov is set to pass the Inflation Reduction Act to tackle climate change. But that effort may be too little too late: Recent estimates suggest that the bill could lower US greenhouse gas emissions by 40% below 2005 levels by the end of 2030. Meanwhile, the UN says emissions need to be reduced by 45% in that time range to avoid âthe worst impactsâ of climate change.
