House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., asked Friday why attorneys were present at the time President Biden was vacating office space at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, DC
On “Jesse Watters Primetime,” McCarthy asked whether it was known that there might be classified documents housed in an insufficiently secured location.
He told host Jesse Watters his caucus plans to “dig hard” into the potential mishandling of the documents.
“Yes, we are, and you’re missing one question: They say the attorneys found these documents,” he said. “Who told the attorneys to look there?”

“Somebody else knew the documents were there all along. Otherwise, why would the attorneys even look?”
McCarthy noted Friday was also the two-year anniversary of Biden’s inauguration, saying the documents scandal is just the latest in a string of political problems for the president — naming the border crisis, 40-year record of inflation and the idea the public was “lied to” about the veracity of first son Hunter Biden’s laptop.
“Now we were [lied to] about and not told that they had documents, that they raided another president, that they don’t believe justice is equal,” he said. “They believe justice should be served on people they politically disagree with, and that they are above the law . That’s what two years of Joe Biden’s presidency has given us.”
McCarthy revisited the attorney wrinkle in the documents case, asking, “Whoever hires lawyers to be movers?”
Of Biden’s defense that his Wilmington garage — where documents were found near his 1967 Chevrolet Corvette — was locked, McCarthy responded
