The GOP is looking to regain political ground, lost in a chaotic opening to the new Congress, by pushing Democrats and President Biden on perceived double standards in cases related to the improper handling of classified documents.
- House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told Fox News: "What's so surprising to me is that this came out before the election. Why does his Department of Justice treat people differently? Every time we find something that comes up before the election, dealing with Biden's family, it's pushed under the rug. It's called a lie."
- Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) wrote in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland: "In August of last year, FBI agents raided the Mar-a-Lago residence of former President Donald Trump, supposedly to secure classified documents dating back to President Trump’s time in office. President Biden appears to have done exactly what President Trump did—only he didn’t get his home raided by the FBI over it."
- Biden, speaking at a press conference in Mexico yesterday, said he was surprised that at the discovery of the classified documents but he believed they were handled properly by his lawyers.
