Republicans seek records in Biden documents case

WASHINGTON ( Associated Press) – Empowered House Republicans on Sunday demanded that the White House turn over all information related to their records on confidential documents found at President Joe Biden’s residence and his former office, at his Delaware home and After receiving the documents.

“We have a lot of questions,” said Rep. James Comer, chairman of the Oversight and Accountability Commission.

Comer said he wanted to see all documents and communications related to the Biden team’s reviews, as well as records of visits to the president’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, from January 20, 2021, to today. He said the goal is to determine who may have had access to the classified material and how the documents got there.

The White House said Saturday that it found five additional pages of classified documents at Biden’s residence on Thursday, the same day a special counsel was appointed to handle the case.

In a letter sent Sunday to White House chief of staff Ron Klain, Comer criticized the searches conducted by Biden representatives while the Justice Department was launching the investigation, noting that Biden had “misappropriated confidential material”. “It raises the question of whether they put our national security at risk.” Comer demanded that the White House provide all relevant information, such as travel records, by the end of the month.

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Comer referred to Biden’s home as a “crime scene,” though he acknowledged it was unclear whether any laws had been broken.

“My concern is that the special counsel was called in, but after hours we have had the president’s personal counsel, who does not have a security clearance, rummaging through the president’s residence, looking for things, I mean essentially a crime scene, if you will,” he said.
