It’s a new day in Washington and the Republican Party is wasting no time in holding the Biden Administration accountable for their actions.
Jim Jordan, the newly appointed Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has announced that his first investigation as Chairman will examine President Biden’s “mishandling” of classified documents and the Justice Department’s investigation into the matter.
This investigation comes just one day after Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to examine the matter, former U.S. attorney Robert Hurl.
The Justice Department escalated the investigation to a special counsel after a second stash of classified documents was found inside the garage of Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware, home. The first batch of documents was found inside the Washington, D.C., offices of the Penn Biden Center think tank.
Jordan is questioning the alleged concealment of information by the DOJ, as the White House admitted that the first batch of documents at the Penn Biden Center were discovered days before the 2022 midterm elections, but were not disclosed publicly until January.
Jordan is demanding all documents and communications regarding the appointment of Hur and between the DOJ and the FBI related to the classified materials.
It is clear that the Biden Administration is not being held to the same standards as the previous Administration. The FBI’s unprecedented raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home last summer and seizure of classified documents is a prime example of how the DOJ has proceeded differently in the past than it has with Biden. At the time, Biden slammed Trump for being “irresponsible” for keeping classified documents.
It’s time for the Biden Administration to be held accountable for their actions. Republican voters demand transparency and honesty from their leaders and it’s time for the DOJ to comply with Chairman Jordan’s investigation. The American people deserve to know the truth about the mishandling of classified documents by the Biden Administration.
