Reporters Challenge House Democrats

Reporters continue to challenge House Democrats over why the news of President Joe Biden's classified documents was not released ahead of the midterms when they were first discovered.

House Democratic Caucus Chair Pete Aguilar came under criticism on Tuesday over the questionable timing of the announcement.

"Well, let's let's step back and talk about this for a minute because and I appreciate the question," Rep. Pete Aguilar responded.

"This is Republican hypocrisy at its finest. When the former president had 320 documents found in his personal residence, they said that 'that will not be a priority.' What President Biden did was disclose this to the archives, let law enforcement know — that is exactly the way that you should handle this," he added.

On the other end of the political divide, Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) said on Thursday that the documents in Biden's home could have been planted there by someone else.

"Alleged classified documents showing up allegedly in the possession of Joseph Biden — there's so much that needs to be investigated and that's what I call for, is for everything to be investigated but I'm suspicious of the timing of it," Johnson told Fox News' Hillary Vaughn.

"I'm also aware of the fact that things can be planted on people… things can be planted in places and then discovered conveniently. That may be what has occurred here. I'm not ruling that out. But I'm open in terms of the investigation needs to be investigated," he added.

Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed Robert Hur as special counsel to investigate the situation.

Biden has not been found to hold at least three batches of classified documents from his time as vice president, including one set in his Penn Biden Center office in Washington and two batches in his Delaware home.

The speculation will continue to grow, but the investigation of the timing of the news release of the documents is key among the factors under scrutiny.
