Congressional lawmakers will reportedly receive a briefing from Biden administration officials on President Joe Biden’s classified document scandal as soon as this week after weeks of stonewalling.
Despite the administration’s claims of transparency, the briefing would not include direct access to the contents of the classified materials Biden stashed at the Penn Biden Center and his Wilmington residence, according to the Associated Press.
The White House failed to disclose the scandal in private or public, as cited by “the ongoing criminal investigations and a separate ‘risk assessment’ of the possible damage to intelligence sources.”
“I have to be really careful,”Karine Jean-Pierre, White House press secretary, has provided numerous responses to reporters regarding the “ongoing investigation.”
Reports claim that classified material was found in troves full of documents includes information about Ukraine where the Biden family had business dealings.
If the briefing takes place, “Gang of Eight”The disclosure would be made. You will receive the disclosure. “Gang of Eight” refers to the Republican and Democratic leaders of the House and Senate and of both intelligence committees.
For weeks Sen. Mark Warner, D-VA, and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL were demanding transparency from administration. Last week, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), the chairman and vice chairman of Senate Intelligence Committee respectively, wrote to Attorney General Merrick Galrland and Avril Haines, Director for National Intelligence, asking them to brief them.
Biden’s classified document scandal has continued to grow. A leak by the media revealed that the FBI had searched the Penn Biden Center mid-November. Biden’s personal attorney only acknowledged the search after it was leaked to the press months after its occurrences.
On February 1, the FBI took an extraordinary step and searched Biden’s second home in Delaware, even though the president claimed no classified documents were there. The FBI’s search unearthed notes from Biden’s time as vice president during the Biden administration. Critics say those notes could relate to information related to the Biden family’s business dealings.
After the scandal had been leaked to media outlets on January 9, the Department of Justice opened an initial investigation into it on January 12. The initial documents were found by Biden’s personal attorneys on November 2.
At least three reports from establishment media indicate the White House and the Justice Department agreed to hide the scandal from the American public.
White House officials are reportedly suspicious about how Biden’s classified document scandal was leaked to the press after only a select group of White House and DOJ officials knew about the violation.
The White House did not provide any explanation or cause of the initial search.
