“The View” co-host Alyssah Farah Griffin said Wednesday that it is “super problematic” if President Joe Biden absconded with any documents relating to Ukraine or Burisma.

Biden’s personal lawyers found classified documents at the Penn Biden Center — his Washington, D.C., think tank — on Nov. 2 and at the president’s Delaware home on Dec. 20, Jan. 11, Jan. 12 and Jan 20. The public was not informed about any of the classified documents until Jan. 9, according to PBS.

The panel were discussing the recent revelations that former Vice President Mike Pence also had classified documents at his private residence, with co-host Sunny Hostin defending Pence, saying he was fleeing “an insurrection” and a staffer likely took the documents.

Co-host Sara Haines then said that Pence and Biden were unaware they took the documents. Co-host Joy Behar concurred and said that “it’s different because Trump is about obstruction,” referring to the classified documents recovered from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago residence.

“Why did [Trump] take them in the first place?” Behar asked. “With the intention to do what? These other two [are] just, like, airheads.”

“Intent is always going to be the most, like, what really matters in this,” Farah Griffin said. “If Biden — if a document is about Ukraine or Burisma, that’s super problematic.”

Hunter Biden served on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company, from 2014 until 2019.

It is unclear what the documents found at Biden’s home and at the Penn Biden Center contain, but Daily Caller co-founder and Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Tuesday night that Hunter Biden had “classified information in his possession” and that it came from the then-VP himself.

Carlson detailed how Hunter’s laptop contained an email that included “a detailed memo with two dozen data points about the political and strategic situation on the ground in Ukraine.” Carlson said the memo sounded like someone from the State Department had drafted it.

“There’s no question that Hunter Biden used classified materials to assemble this email,” Carlson said, going on to read some of the formally worded memo.

“When he wrote this email, Hunter Biden was an active drug addict … he couldn’t even stay sober long enough to pass a scheduled drug test. He was completely out of control,” Carlson said. “Yet somehow in that state, in this email, Hunter Biden managed to sound like a seasoned Ukraine hand from Foggy Bottom referring to Russia as ‘RU’ and all the rest.”
