Dems Turn on Biden over Classified Docs Scandal

'And it’s an embarrassment, no doubt about it... '

(Headline USADemocrats lashed out at President Joe Biden over news that he illegally stored classified documents from the Obama presidency in his Washington, D.C. think tank and Delaware home.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., one of the leftist members of the “Squad,” said last week that she was “glad” Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to investigate Biden’s mishandling of classified documents.

“Any time there is a deviance in regard to security protocols, that should be taken serious, it should be investigated,” she told MSNBC.

Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., agreed, calling Biden’s scandal an “embarrassment.”

“We have a special counsel in place. The documents and the whole issue is before the special counsel and the investigations will go forward with regard to these classified documents that were found,” Garamendi said when asked what more the Justice Department could do to hold Biden accountable. 

“And it’s an embarrassment, no doubt about it,” Garamendi added. “Is there more to it? I doubt it, but we’ll find out from the special counsel as he goes about his business.”

Retiring Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., also described Biden’s scandal as “embarrassing.”

“It’s certainly embarrassing, right?” she told NBC News. “They don’t think it’s the right thing and they have been moving to correct it, working with the Department of Justice, working with everyone involved with the [National] Archives,” she said of the Biden administration. “And so from my perspective, you know, it’s one of those moments that obviously they wish hadn’t happened.”

Even Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said he would support a congressional probe into Biden’s missing classified documents to determine whether “there was harm to national security.”

“I still would like to see Congress do its own assessment of — and receive an assessment from — the intelligence community of whether there was an exposure to others of these documents,” Schiff said.
