CNN bemoans GOP interest in Biden classified docs: ‘A new line of attack fell squarely into their laps’

Following classified documents being found in an old office of President Biden’s, CNN has decried “a new line of attack” falling into the laps of Republicans as they retake control of the House and begin investigations into the government, including the Democrats’ “Dear Leader.”

The documents are six years old and were found by Biden’s attorneys on November 2, just days before the midterm elections. But they didn’t reveal them until this week. CNN attempted damage control by reporting that the documents involved Ukraine, Iran, and the UK. It backfired and made the revelation worse and spurred an outcry over the differing treatments of former President Trump, who has executive privilege when it comes to classified documents, and former Vice President Biden, who had no such authority.

“As House Republicans officially take over Congress and clamor to investigate the Biden administration, a new line of attack fell squarely into their laps: classified documents recovered from one of President Joe Biden’s private offices when he served as vice president,” CNN bemoaned.

“House Oversight Chairman James Comer, a key lawmaker in leading investigations in the 118th Congress, vowed to send letters to the White House and the National Archives, which his panel has jurisdiction over,” the leftist media outlet continued.

It is obvious that the left fears Comer a great deal as a Church-style committee has been formed to dig into the intelligence agencies, the federal government, and the president himself.

“President Biden has been very critical of President Trump mistakenly taking classified documents to the residence or wherever and now it seems he may have done the same,” Comer noted. “How ironic.”

“The news of Biden’s possession of classified documents and the prompt Republican response that followed came as Congress voted Tuesday to establish a panel engineered to investigate the ‘weaponization’ of the federal government, adding to an already growing list of oversight priorities House Republicans have laid out now that they have committee control and subpoena power. The party-line vote was 221-211,” CNN stated.

“A lot of people are interested,” incoming Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, who will be overseeing the select subcommittee, told CNN. “I’ve had lots of people talk to me, so that’s good.”

CNN evidently sees Comer as a threat because he’s going after Biden over the newly-found classified documents which makes the Democrats’ assault on Trump pretty much moot. The fear of the Kentucky congressman is palpable on the left.

“In what represented an opening salvo by Republican-led congressional investigations into Biden’s handling of classified material, Comer on Tuesday swiftly sent letters to the National Archives, which his panel has jurisdiction over, and the White House Counsel’s Office,” CNN continued. “Among the requests made in the letters were: All documents retrieved from Biden’s personal office where the classified documents were found; a list of people who had access to that office; all documents and communications between the White House, Department of Justice, and National Archives regarding the documents that were retrieved; and all documents and communications related to the handling of classified material by Biden’s personal lawyers, including their security clearance statuses.”

“The Kentucky Republican asked that documents and other information be turned over no later than January 24 and that NARA General Counsel Gary Stern and NARA Director of Congressional Affairs John Hamilton be made available for transcribed interviews with committee staff no later than January 17,” the media outlet added.

CNN got a good thrashing on Twitter over their “pounce” angle:
