Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Senator Mark Warner, a Democrat from Virginia, said he believes the Biden administration is stonewalling on the Biden, Trump classified document situation despite previously having promised a briefing on the contents of the documents.
The briefing that was supposed to occur about the documents held by President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump hasn't happened, and the Biden administration went back on its offer.
Warner spoke about how in the absence of a briefing, they now have no idea when they’ll find out what was in the documents and this "cannot stand."
Biden Admin Nailed For Stonewalling
Host Margaret Brennan asked, "I know the two of you were briefed by the Director of National Intelligence, Avril Haines. Do you have any timeline in terms of when you will get visibility into the documents of classified material that both President Biden and President Trump had in their residences?"
Warner answered, "Margaret, unfortunately, no. And this committee has had a long, bipartisan history of doing its job, and our job here is intelligence oversight. The Justice Department has had the Trump documents about six months, the Biden documents about three months. Our job’s not to figure if somebody mishandled those, our job is to make sure there’s not an intelligence compromise."
"And while the Director of National Intelligence had been willing to brief us earlier," Warner continued, "now that you’ve got the special counsel, the notion that we’re going to be left in limbo and we can’t do our job, that just cannot stand."
