Senate Dems Say They Support Full Probe Into Biden Classified Document Scandal
Senate Democrats say they are alarmed by the fact that President Joe Biden was in possession of at least dozens of classified documents potentially in violation of the law, and they support a full investigation into the matter.
Unlike former President Donald Trump, who — as head of the Executive Branch — had the authority to declassify documents virtually at will, Biden, as a U.S. senator and even as Barack Obama’s vice president, never did, so the fact that he had them at all is troubling to a growing number of Dems, Fox News reported.
“The reports about President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents are extremely irresponsible and disturbing. These allegations should be investigated fully,” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.), told the network on Friday.
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), who was Hillary Clinton’s running mate in 2016, agreed.
