Biden's Secret Docs Being Kept From Congress

The intelligence committee has been caught withholding access to information about President Joe Biden’s classified document scandal, and it is causing concern about resistance to congressional oversight.

"During a Senate intelligence hearing, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) questioned the heads of several intelligence agencies about why they continue to block congressional access to classified documents recovered from locations connected to Biden," reported Breitbart News.

Warner and Rubio voiced concerns that Congress is being prevented from having oversight on the intelligence community.

Biden's Secret Documents Still Being Hidden

The Senators assert that the intelligence community has refused to be forthcoming about the classified documents Biden had hidden in various locations.

Senator Warner issued a warning to the community, saying that stonewalling will negatively impact congressional approval of a warrantless surveillance program that the Biden administration has been desperate to reauthorize.

"Its value cannot be overstated," said Assistant Attorney General Matthew Olsen about the warrantless spy program. "Without 702, we will lose indispensable intelligence for our decision-makers and warfighters, as well as those of our allies. And we have no fallback authority that could come close to making up for that loss."

Warner said, "This trust relationship has to go two ways."

"Rubio echoed Warner’s concerns and stated oversight of the intelligence community is an imperative function to assess the community’s handling of the scandal," according to Breitbart.

"A special counsel cannot have veto authority over Congress' ability to do its job," added Rubio. "This is going to be addressed one way or the other."
