As President Joe Biden’s classified documents saga rumbles on, Senate Republicans are calling for a search of the president’s sealed Senate papers, which he donated to the University of Delaware. Several GOP Senators, including Reps. Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ) and Rep. Ben Cline (R-VA), are calling for the documents to be searched.

“No stone should be left unturned and every single establishment that is associated with Joe Biden must be searched,” Van Drew told Fox News Digital. “More documents are being revealed day by day, so they all must be examined in order for investigations to be thoroughly conducted.”
Drew, who maintained that the American people are tired of the two-tiered justice system the DOJ is perpetuating, argued that the files need to be searched to be sure Biden did not unlawfully remove any classified documents during his time as Senator.
The American people are tired of the double standard and two-tiered system of justice.
It is time for this administration to be honest and transparent with the American people. https://t.co/q4kvMWp34u

Drew revealed that House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said his committee will be conducting a probe into how the DOJ is handling the classified documents.
“It is time for this administration to be honest and transparent with Congress and the American people,” Drew said.
Cline echoed Drew’s sentiments while stating that effort must be made to ensure all the documents are recovered and thoroughly searched for classified files.
“As we didn’t know that President Biden had stored classified documents at the Penn Biden Center and at his Wilmington home, we don’t know if any of the papers Biden donated to the University of Delaware from his U.S. Senate days contain classified information,” Cline said.

Rep. Austin Scott (R-GA), currently on the House Intelligence Committee, demanded that the donated papers be searched, according to Fox News. Scott maintained that Biden has demonstrated a lack of care with how he handled classified documents throughout his political career.
“Authorities must investigate other potentially mishandled materials that could pose a significant threat to our national security,” Scott said.
