The Daily Wire reports that U.S. Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), over the weekend, criticized U.S. President Joe Biden and his administration for its handling of the classified documents scandal. 

Warner is the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is investigating both the classified documents scandal involving Biden and the one involving former President Donald Trump.

On Sunday, Warner made an appearance on CBS News's Face the Nation, where he was interviewed by host Margaret Brennan.

The two touched on a number of hot-button issues, including Biden's classified documents scandal.

"Does not pass the smell test"

At one point during the interview, Brennan asked Warner to essentially provide an update on his committee's investigation of Biden's classified documents scandal. It was here that Warner made known his dissatisfaction with the administration's handling of the matter.

"We need more information about these documents, and, more importantly, we need to make sure that what the intel community has done to mitigate the harm," Warner began.

The senator continued by revealing that he and his committee are "still in conversations with the Justice Department."

But, he made it clear that, in the view of himself and of his committee, "the administration’s position does not — does not pass the smell test."

Warner said:

We’ve got a job - not to go into the legal ramifications - but to make sure that the intelligence community has done what’s right. And, we’ve got some additional tools: We can restrict some of the spending. We’re in active conversations with the Justice Department. But, we’ve got to get those documents.


Warner and his committee have been trying to get more information about the Biden classified documents scandal for months now. He specifically wants to know what information is contained in the classified documents that were found in Biden's possession in order to better assess the whole situation - including whether the documents "fell into the wrong hands."

Biden and his administration, though, have not been cooperating.

Just last month, Warner and his committee received a classified briefing on the matter. But, following that briefing, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), another member of the committee, said that it left "much to be desired."

Based on Warner's appearance Sunday on CBS, the Biden administration is still not fully cooperating with the committee, which is not a good look.

People tend to be more cooperative with authorities unless they have something to hide. The big question here is "what is Biden hiding?"
