Senate Intelligence chair says Biden keeping classified docs from Congress doesn't pass 'smell test'
"We're still in conversations with the Justice Department, the administration's position does not ... pass the smell test," Warner said.
Virginia Democrat Sen. Mark Warner, the Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, said the Biden administration's lack of transparency about the classified documents found in President Joe Biden's personal possession "does not pass the smell test."
"We need more information about these documents," Warner said Sunday on CBS News' "Face the Nation" when asked about the documents found in Biden's home and office from his time as vice president. "And more importantly, we need to make sure that what the intel community has done to mitigate the harm.
"We're still in conversations with the Justice Department, the administration's position does not ... pass the smell test," Warner told host Margaret Brennan. "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."
Warner also said during the interview that the White House is "very in favor" of his bipartisan bill that could lead to a nationwide TikTok ban.
