Ted Cruz says Biden's classified documents scandal is 'a pile of incompetence'

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tx, criticized President Joe Biden for his alleged mishandling of classified documents Monday on Fox Business's Bottom Line Monday.

Cruz said Biden's classified documents scandal is remarkable and that's why he's so remarkable.

Cruz said it was just a pile of incompetence on top of incompetence on top of sloppiness on top of irresponsibility.

Biden's lawyer discovered classified documents at the Penn Biden CenterBiden Center in Washington, D.C. in November. There have been various batches of classified documents found at Biden's residences since then.

The Department of Justice's handling of Biden's classified document scandal has been juxtaposed by conservatives with its handling of Trump's. There is a double standard in the pace and intensity of the investigations, according to some.

It's a little bit amazing how Biden finds more and more classified documents every day, despite the fact that he was so happy to be throwing rocks at Donald Trump and saying how irresponsible it is. It makes you wonder where it's going to be next, and the latest development you were talking about was that some of these documents are from his Senate tenure, which is really astonishing, Cruz said.

You read them in the room, and you leave the documents there. Cruz remarked that he didn't know how he got 'em out of there.

It raises serious questions and it calls for a whole lot more investigation, Cruz said.

Robert Hur, a Trump appointee who was unanimously approved by the Senate in 2018 as a special counsel was assigned to investigate the matter.

Biden has been criticised for his mishandling of classified documents and his cavalier response to questions from the press. Biden said last week that he had no regrets about the classified documents.
