Sen. Mark Warner, a Democrat from Virginia, spoke to Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation” this Sunday, demanding more transparency from the Biden administration on the discovery of decades of classified documents among Biden’s personal property. Chris Enloe reports in The Blaze:
Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) blasted President Joe Biden on Sunday for stonewalling lawmakers about the extent of his classified documents scandal.
At the end of an interview on CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” moderator Margaret Brennan asked Warner, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, whether the Biden administration has been forthcoming with details about Biden’s improper retention of classified documents.
But according to Warner, the White House is not being transparent.
“We need more information about these documents,” Warner said. “More importantly, we need to make sure that what the intel community has done to mitigate the harm. And we’re still in conversations with the Justice Department.
“The administration’s position does not pass the smell test,” Warner added.
The Virginia Democrat suggested lawmakers are prepared to use “additional tools” to compel Biden to give lawmakers the details they want about his scandal. One action Congress can take, Warner threatened, is to restrict spending.
“We’ve got some additional tools. We can restrict some of the spending. We’re in active conversations with the Justice Department. But we’ve got to get those documents,” the senator said.
