Graham Calls For Special Counsel For Biden Classified Documents

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today spoke with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum about the need for Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel to investigate the mishandling of classified documents by President Joe Biden when he served as Vice President. 

Following Senator Graham’s interview, it was announced that Biden aides found a second batch of classified documents at a different location.

  • GRAHAM: “I think if you believe a special counsel is necessary to assure the public about the handling of classified documents by [former President] Donald Trump, you should apply a special counsel to the mishandling of classified documents by President Biden when he was Vice President.” https://youtu.be/v5wJ3DxjCKg?t=94 
  • GRAHAM: “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. [Attorney General] Garland if you're listening, if you thought it was necessary to appoint a special counsel regarding [former] President Trump, then you need to do the exact same thing regarding President Biden when it comes to handling classified information.” https://youtu.be/v5wJ3DxjCKg?t=197
  • GRAHAM: “The idea of prosecuting a president regarding mishandling classified information is very problematic because they have the right to declassify. I’m calling for a special counsel. The point is, you need a special counsel to investigate the Biden mishandling episode if you’re going to do the same for Trump.”  https://youtu.be/v5wJ3DxjCKg?t=291
