Emmer: Biden’s classified documents scandal shows why House GOP oversight is so crucial
Washington, January 23, 2023
Majority Whip Tom Emmer joined The Faulkner Focus with Harris Faulkner today to discuss House Republicans’ role in holding President Biden accountable for his mishandling of classified documents after even more were discovered by the DOJ at his Delaware mansion this weekend. Whip Emmer pointed out that two-thirds of Americans are in favor of Congressional investigations into the matter and that we need to determine who else had access to the documents in question. Additionally, Whip Emmer noted that the double standard set by the Department of Justice in its handling of President Biden’s classified documents case versus former President Trump’s further proves the importance of the House’s new Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.

“This president is using every level of government that he controls, including the DOJ, to try and control the release of these things. Frankly, this is why House Republicans and the new Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of Government – the double standard is so important – that we be able to do our job through Jamie Comer, Jim Jordan, and several others. The American people, Harris, two-thirds of the American people want this investigated. They want to know what President Biden was doing with these classified documents.”
