The story of the discovery of classified documents at the pro-President Biden think tank is a disturbing and potentially dangerous development that should concern all Americans.
The news that the incoming chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee Mike Turner is calling for a prompt national security “damage assessment” after these documents were found is an important step in getting to the bottom of this serious matter.
It is deeply concerning that President Biden’s personal attorneys discovered a “small number of documents with classified markings” in a locked closet at the Penn Biden Center on November 2nd.
This is not the behavior we expect from our President and his team, and it raises serious questions about their handling of classified information and their commitment to protecting our nation’s secrets.
According to reports, it has been revealed that a portion of the materials at issue were marked ‘sensitive compartmented information,’ indicating the highest classification and most sensitive intelligence information in our government.
This is deeply concerning and highlights the potential security risks involved in allowing classified information to fall into the wrong hands.
This is yet another example of the Democrats carelessly handling sensitive information, which we have seen before from the mishandling of classified emails on Hilary Clinton’s private server.
This time it’s in an unsecured location for six years and as the incoming Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee, Mike Turner is doing the right thing by calling for an immediate review and damage assessment.
This nation’s security is of the utmost importance and it is imperative that the Biden administration is held accountable for any and all mishandling of classified information.
We need to get to the bottom of this story as soon as possible and take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that our nation’s secrets are kept safe from those who would do us harm.
This is a time for all Republicans to come together, to support the efforts of Chairman Turner, and to hold the Biden administration accountable for their actions. It’s time to put our nation’s security first, above all else.
