Brzezinski Takes Shot at Republicans Following Discovery of Biden Classified Documents


MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski took the opportunity to criticize Republicans after classified documents were discovered at President Joe Biden’s office and home.

During her commentary Friday, Brzezinski reacted to remarks made by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on the matter.

“The bottom line is we need to fully understand what happened in both cases – involving Presidents Trump and Biden – to make sure our system works in a way to protect our national security interests… The decision to appoint a special counsel in this case is in the best interest of the country,” Graham said.

Brzezinski replied, “Really? Where did that come from?”

She explained Democrats are reacting to the issue, saying, “Ugh, are you serious? Democrats were on such a roll. Republicans are going to pounce on this, ugh, this downplays the significance of the Trump document scandal, right?”

Brzezinski continued, “Not so much. I would suggest not so much at all. Documents in private hands is something Republicans downplayed constantly until the shoe was placed on the other foot. And unfortunately for them, the Trump shoe that dropped was much bigger and entirely different in the key issue of willful intent to obstruct. That’s what it’s going to come down to.”

She suggested many Republicans “aren’t smart enough to figure that out, and they can’t figure out that this week’s developments actually make it more likely the DOJ moves on Trump because of the political space it has been given by the Penn Biden center and the garage where Joe Biden parks his Corvette.”

The MSNBC host acknowledged Biden’s handling of classified documents was “sloppy.”

She argued, “In the end, what is most important here is intent, willful intent to obstruct. What we know is that the Biden administration immediately handed over the documents, reached out to the National Archives to say, ‘Hey, we’ve got something here.’ We also know that Donald Trump held off, even in the face of a subpoena. Republicans are now telling us this is truly an important national security issue.”

On Wednesday, it was reported that aides to Biden discovered another set of classified documents separate from the ones found at the office he used following his vice presidency.

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Thursday he appointed a special counsel to investigate the documents.

“We have cooperated closely with the Justice Department throughout its review, and we will continue that cooperation with the special counsel,” Richard Sauber, a lawyer for Biden, said.

He added, “We are confident that a thorough review will show that these documents were inadvertently misplaced, and the president and his lawyers acted promptly upon discovery of this mistake.”
