An affidavit says Adam Winters threatened that he had damaging evidence on the nuclear weapons plant.

Winters appeared on The Millionaire Matchmaker TV show.

According to the affidavit, Winters claimed he would release 12,000 slides that could be damaging to the plant unless officials paid him $5 million.

The document also found Winters sent a letter to the FBI and Vice President Joe Biden.

Winters said he had evidence of bomb testing and how much radiation was used on animals.
