MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough said Tuesday that Republicans aren’t wrong for wanting to know the contents of the classified documents found in President Joe Biden’s garage.

Classified documents from Biden’s time as vice president have been found at multiple non-secure locations. At least five additional pages were discovered in Biden’s Delaware home on Saturday. The initial batch of documents was found on Nov. 2, but the public wasn’t informed of the discovery until January.

Scarborough began by arguing while Biden’s documents are a political problem for the president, the documents that FBI agents recovered from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago residence in Aug. 2022 present a real legal problem.

“But let’s just talk about the documents themselves, and let’s talk about something that the Republicans — we mock the Republicans for a lot of their stupid investigations,” Scarborough continued. “Let’s talk about this though: there’s nothing stupid about saying, ‘We need to know what documents were in an unsecured garage in Wilmington and at a place where you didn’t have visitor logs for people that were coming and going because it was a private residence.”

“That may all be true. And at the same time, if I’m on the Intel Committee and I’m a Democrat or a Republican, you know, I want to get to the bottom of this. I want to know what documents — even if it wasn’t the intention of the then-vice president to have those documents there — I want to know what documents were at an unsecured location in Wilmington in a garage.” (RELATED: Joy Reid: GOP Is Upset Because DOJ Dared ‘To Investigate Conservatives’)

Republicans have called on the Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide the House Intelligence Committee with an immediate assessment of what records were found and whether they threaten the national security, according to Bloomberg.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said the committee would investigate Biden’s handling of the documents as well.
