North Dakota Republican Rep. Kelly Armstrong pushed back Wednesday against CNN’s Alisyn Camerota after Camerota appeared to downplay concerns about the classified documents from President Joe Biden’s time as vice president.
Biden’s personal attorneys allegedly discovered several classified documents while packing files and subsequently notified the National Archives and Records Administration, CNN reported Tuesday, citing two sources familiar with the matter. Several of the classified documents allegedly held materials related to Ukraine, Iran and the United Kingdom. Biden was reportedly unaware that the documents had been found at the office and was notified via the White House counsel’s office.
The GOP-led House on Tuesday created of a new oversight committee to investigate the “weaponization” of federal agencies like the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ).
“I know that you, in particular, want Congress to investigate the FBI and the DOJ,” Camerota said. “Do you worry that by investigating the FBI it will impact the morale of the agents and the work that they do?”
“I worry that it’s already happened,” Armstrong said. “These are really serious issues and we need to investigate and deal with it, and we’ve had FBI whistleblowers already come forward, and there’s a real serious problem in leadership, and just changing a regulation isn’t going to solve it.”
Camerota then brought up the classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president that were found at a private office and asked whether there were any differences between Biden’s case and that of former President Donald Trump. An Aug. 2022 FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-A-Lago residence recovered several sets of classified documents.
