(ConservativeHub.com) – The White House has criticized Republicans over the different approach they have taken to the two separate cases of classified documents being discovered in President Biden’s and former President Trump’s possession.
During a call with reporters, White House aides said that the GOP was openly attacking Biden when they had previously defended Trump in a similar case, according to a report from The Hill. Ian Sams, a spokesman for the White House Counsel’s Office pointed out that Biden and his entire team have been in full cooperation with the relevant agencies and are making sure that following the discovery everything is going through the proper procedures. However, instead of acknowledging this, elected Republicans are engaging in “political stunts and theater.”
The White House in the past week has not only had to answer calls relating to the classified documents found in Biden’s private office in Washington, D.C., and his Delaware home, but it has also had to answer questions regarding why the information of the discovery was not made public for so long.
According to the report that came out on January 10, the first batch of classified documents had been found on November 2 in Biden’s private office at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., and yet this information was kept under wraps for over two months. This has caused a lot of questions, both because the discovery occurred before the midterm elections, and because of how critical the administration had been of the documents found in Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.
