3. I Doubt A Nuclear Exchange Could Be Initiated

by someone taking the "football" on its own. There are too many other stops that can happen to short circuit an unauthorized push. The immediate danger was that the US would be vulnerable to a first strike (not likely) since the riot could have potentially removed one of the people who would have been authorized to instigate a nuclear strike.

That said, the information that could be gleaned from the device itself is probably extremely valuable. Note that the thief who stole Pelosi's computer had no misgivings about turning it over to our enemies.
