(CNSNews.com) — When asked if members of the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence Committees should be able to review the classified documents found in President Joe Biden’s garage and at the Penn Biden Center, Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) said, “Sure, they should.” He added that the Justice Department doesn’t want Congress to see the documents.
At the Capitol on Feb. 1, CNS News asked Tuberville, “Should members of the Judiciary and Intelligence Committees be able to review the classified documents found in Biden’s garage and the Penn Biden Center?”
“Sure they should,” replied Tuberville.
CNS News then asked, “And why do you think the Justice Department is trying to prevent them from doing so?”
“It’s obviously a cover up,” said Tuberville. “I mean, what else would you do it for? And they don’t want us to see it.”
“They said there’s no there there, but there’s something there there, I promise you,” emphasized the senator.
In early January, classified documents from Joe Biden’s tenure as vice president (2009-2017) were found in a private office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C.
Days later, additional classified documents were found in the president’s garage at his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
On Jan. 30, the Department of Justice denied a request from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan’s (R-Ohio) request for nonpublic information regarding the Department’s probe into the classified documents found in Biden’s residences.
In a letter sent to Jordan, a DOJ spokesman said, “the Department’s longstanding policy is to maintain the confidentiality of such information regarding open matters.”
A spokesman for Jordan criticized the Department’s decision as “playing politics.”
