Sen. Graham Demands Special Counsel Probe As Biden Breaks Silence Over Classified Docs

“Every conservative out there is completely disgusted.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Wednesday called for Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel to investigate the handling of classified documents by President Biden while he served as vice president.

Graham said the appointment of a special counsel is necessary to investigate Biden after Garland announced the appointment of career prosecutor Jack Smith to investigate former President Trump’s possession of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago.

“I think if you believe a special counsel is necessary to assure the public about the handling of classified documents by Donald Trump, you should apply a special counsel to the mishandling of classified documents by President Biden when he was vice president,” Graham said during an interview with Martha MacCallum on Fox News.

“If there is not a special counsel appointed to find out how this happened with President Biden regarding classified information … it will hurt the country,” Graham warned.

Graham warned that many conservatives believe prosecutors and the media are applying a different set of standards for Trump and Biden. 

“Every conservative out there is completely disgusted with the standard that exists in America when it comes to conservatives and everybody else,” he said.“Garland, if you’re listening, if you thought it was necessary to appoint a special counsel regarding President Trump, then you need to do the exact same thing regarding President Biden when it comes to handling classified information,” Graham said.

Additionally, President Biden has broken his silence on the issue.

At a news conference Wednesday for the North American Leaders’ Summit in Mexico, President Biden said he doesn’t know why classified papers were lying around in his former office at the Penn Biden Center (this was before the second batch of classified papers were discovered).

“People know I take classified documents and classified information seriously,” he said.

“When my lawyers were clearing out my office at the University of Pennsylvania, they set up an office for me — a secure office in the Capitol, when I — the four years after being vice president, I was a professor at Penn.

They found some documents in a box — you know, a locked cabinet, or at least a closet. And as soon as they did, they realized there were several classified documents in that box. And they did what they should have done: They immediately called the Archives — immediately called the Archives — turned them over to the Archives.”

“And I was briefed about this discovery and surprised to learn that there were any government records that were taken there to that office.

“But I don’t know what’s in the documents. I’ve — my lawyers have not suggested I ask what documents they were. I’ve turned over the boxes — they’ve turned over the boxes to the Archives. And we’re cooperating fully — cooperating fully with the review and — which I hope will be finished soon, and will be more detail at that time.”

As a reminder, when informed about the FBI raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence to retrieve classified documents, Biden asked “how could anyone be that irresponsible?”
