The Biden administration is under increasing pressure due to the mishandling of classified information. Senate Democrats have now joined the growing number of people calling for an investigation.
Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia called for an investigation into the matter, saying that the reports about Biden's alleged mishandling of classified information were very disturbing.
Tim Kaine, who is also a senator from Virginia, joined Manchin in calling for an investigation. They are among a small group of Democrats who have criticized Biden for his alleged mishandling of classified information. Most of the senators from the party are not speaking out about the issue because of their re-election campaigns.
Katie Porter, a California representative, also said that members of the House were looking for answers regarding the classified information.
She also said that good oversight is not a partisan issue. It means that members of the House are willing to hold those who break the rules accountable.
Debbie Stabenow, a senator from Michigan, said that it was very embarrassing that Biden allegedly did not use the proper channels to safeguard classified information. She praised the administration for working together with the relevant agencies 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 the incident, the White House still refused to say if it would cooperate with a House Oversight Committee investigation.
