GOP Rep. Mike Turner: "No reason" for Biden to have classified docs in home

Washington — GOP Rep. Mike Turner, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday that he cannot think of a reason for President Biden to have documents

bearing classification markings from his time as vice president and senator at his Delaware home. "This is a real critical question to all this — why did he have these

documents to begin with?" Turner said in an interview with "Face the Nation." "And that is why the special counsel's work is going to be really important, because I can think of

no reason why the president should have taken home, as a senator or as vice president, any classified documents that clearly have no protection. They're available and open to

anybody."Transcript: Rep. Mike Turner on "Face the Nation" Bob Bauer, Mr. Biden's personal attorney, revealed Saturday that another six items marked classified were

discovered during a consensual search of the president's Wilmington, Delaware, home conducted by the FBI on Friday. In addition to records, some of which were from Mr.

Biden's time in the Senate and others from his tenure as vice president, federal investigators took handwritten notes for further review, according to Bauer.  The discovery

of the records on Friday is the latest since early November, when Mr. Biden's lawyers found roughly 10 documents marked classified dating back to his time as vice president in his

former office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington. A subsequent search of the president's Wilmington house on Dec. 20 turned up a second

batch of records in the garage, and a total of six pages of documents marked classified were found during a search of his private library.
