(RepublicanDaily.org) – Classified documents from the Trump administration were discovered at former Vice President Mike Pence’s private residences in Indiana, Fox News reported. The discovery comes on the heels of both the Biden and Trump document scandals.
Pence informed Congress that he had discovered the documents bearing classified markings at his home in Carmel, Indiana, on January 16.
President Biden and former President Trump are also currently being investigated for housing classified documents at their Delaware and Florida private residences.
Biden likewise housed classified documents at the Penn Biden Center on the University of Pennsylvania’s campus.
As Pence becomes another political figure subject to scandal for mishandling of classified materials, politicians and commentators debate the impacts. Democrats and Republicans compare the scandals between their party leaders.
Meanwhile, political figures were the subject of strong rhetoric. Democrat Rep Jim Himes expressed that he was “profoundly troubled” by the discovery of the classified documents at the Biden private residence and center, CNN wrote.
Karl Rove, a political analyst, told Fox News that Biden mishandled the documents found in possession because “no aides” would have handled the material at his private residence. He explained that the document scandal will “only get worse” for President Biden, as his approval ratings among independents appear to be in decline.
Political commentators debated the “overclassification” of documents, political analyst Jeremy Scahill told Democracy Now. Scahill explained that, while the details of both the Biden documents and the Trump documents scandal are different, they highlight “deeper, systemic problems” with officials mishandling documents.
As the political debate amps up, political commentators questioned the political implications for Biden and Trump. Political analysts ponder who the whistleblower was in the Biden documents’ leak, calling the leak a “sabotage.”
Podcast host Joe Rogan wondered if Biden’s Democratic party may be intentionally targeting him to detract from his legitimacy as the party’s candidate in the upcoming 2024 presidential election.
