GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Lawmakers in North and South Carolina issued statements after Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to investigate classified documents found at President Joe Biden’s home.
Officials said sensitive documents were also found in an office of Biden’s former institute in Washington.
Senator Tim Scott released the following statement:
“President Biden condemned Trump and had his home raided for having classified documents, all while he had classified documents in his own garage AND office!
This stinks of hypocrisy.
No wonder the American people have trouble trusting this president.”
Senator Thom Tillis released the following statement:
“There should be no double standard in our justice system. I am glad Attorney General Garland appointed a special counsel to investigate President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents to ensure the independence of the investigation.
“In the coming weeks, I will also be reintroducing legislation to ensure there can be no political interference of investigations into President Biden, his family members, or any future administrations.”
