The Biden administration is under increasing pressure due to the mishandling of classified information. Senate Democrats have now supported an investigation into the matter.
Rep. James Comer of North Carolina is asking the White House about the contents of classified documents that were kept at Biden's home in Wilmington.
"According to documents, this address appeared on the driver's license of Hunter in 2018. The same year, he was reportedly negotiating with foreign adversaries."
@RepJamesComer presses the White House about classified docs stashed at Biden's Wilmington home.
We have docs revealing this address appeared on Hunter's driver's license as recently as 2018, the same time he was cutting deals with foreign adversaries.

According to Joe Manchin, a senator from West Virginia, the mishandling of classified information by Biden is very irresponsible. An investigation should be conducted into the matter.
Tim Kaine, a Democrat from Virginia, joined Manchin in supporting an investigation.
Several Senate Democrats, including Manchin and Whitehouse, have criticized Biden for mishandling classified information. Most of the party's senators are not speaking out about the issue since their re-elections in 2024.
Katie Porter, a Democrat from California, also said that members of Congress are looking for answers regarding the classified documents.
"When asked about the importance of oversight, she said that it's not a partisan issue. It's about holding the rule breakers accountable. She also said that members should be asking for honest answers."
"During an interview, Debbie Stabenow, a senator from Michigan, said that it was embarrassing that classified documents were found in the former vice president's home. She noted that Biden and his team have been working to address the issue."
Robert Hur, a former US attorney, was appointed by Attorney General Garland to investigate the matter.
Despite the president's statement that he has no regrets about how the classified documents were handled, the White House still refused to say if it would participate in the Oversight Committee's investigation.
