Biden documents: Republicans want more information; Democrats say GOP defending Trump

WASHINGTON – Republicans said Sunday the White House needs to provide more information about President Joe Biden's handling of classified information, as Biden

allies said the GOP is trying to use the case to undercut an investigation of Donald Trump and top secret material. Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., chairman of the

House Oversight Committee, said he wants to know who might have had access to classified documents that the former vice president had in his personal possession. Republicans also

want to know how secret documents made their way to Biden's office and Delaware residence in the first place. "We have a lot of questions," Comer told CNN's

"State of the Union."  Start the day smarter. Get all the news you need in your inbox each morning. In a Sunday letter to White House Chief of Staff Ron

Klain seeking more information, Comer wrote that Biden's "mishandling of classified materials raises the issue of whether he has jeopardized our national security."

Biden's handling of classified documents Democrats said the president and his attorneys turned over classified documents as soon as they were discovered, a

marked contrast with how Trump handled sensitive records that should have been sent to the National Archives. "We should keep a sense of proportion and measure

about what we’re talking about," said Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., a top Democrat on the Oversight committee, also speaking on CNN.
