Democrats scramble to defend Biden’s handling of classified materials, point fingers at Trump

Democrats wasted no time defending President Biden after classified documents dating back to the Obama administration were found in his home garage and an office, pointing out “differences” from former President Trump’s handling of classified materials outside of Washington.

Under immense scrutiny from Republicans, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel Thursday to investigate the classified materials, which Biden claims were “inadvertently misplaced.”

The Justice Department escalated it to a special counsel investigation from a mere review after a second stash of classified documents was found inside the garage of Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware, home. The first documents were found inside the Washington offices of the Penn Biden Center think tank last year. Garland tapped Robert Hur, a former U.S. attorney, to handle the investigation.
