House Republicans demanded that the White House turn over all information related to classified documents found in the home and former office of President Joe Biden
House Republicans on Sunday demanded that the White House turn over all information related to their searches that have uncovered classified documents at the home and former office of President Joe Biden in the wake of more records being found at his residence from Delaware.
“We have a lot of questions,” said Rep. James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee.
Comer, a Kentucky Republican, said he wants to see all documents and communications related to the searches conducted by Biden’s team, as well as visitor logs at the president’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, since Jan. 20, 2021. until the present. He said the goal is to determine who might have had access to the classified material and how the records got there.
The White House said Saturday that it had discovered an additional five pages of classified documents at Biden’s home on Thursday, the same day a special prosecutor was appointed to review the matter.
In a letter Sunday to White House chief of staff Ron Klain, Comer criticized the records of Biden’s representatives as the Justice Department began to investigate, saying that “Biden’s mishandling of classified materials raises the whether it has jeopardized our national security.”
Comer demanded that the White House provide all relevant information, including visitor logs, by the end of the month.
Appearing 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 were broken.
“My concern is that the special counsel was called, but hours after that we still had the president’s personal lawyers, who don’t have security clearance, still poking around the president’s residence, looking for things, I mean that would essentially be a crime scene, if you will,” Comer said.
While the US Secret Service provides security at the president’s private residence, it does not maintain visitor logs, agency spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Sunday.
“We do not independently maintain our own visitor logs because it is a private residence,” Guglielmi said. He added that the agency screens visitors to the president’s properties, but does not keep records of those checks.
