After the FBI raided President Donald Trump’s (R) home, Republicans criticized the government effort. This week, President Joe Biden (D) incited controversy after classified documents were found in a private office at a think tank. The documents stem from his time as Vice President, and they relate to Ukraine, Iran, and the UK. In response, Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R) has questioned why the FBI has not raided Biden’s home.
Taking to social media, the Texas Republican shared his frustration over the discovery that President Biden had taken classified documents to his office at a think tank.
Why hasn’t the FBI raided Joe Biden’s home?

“The FBI has discovered highly classified documents from Biden’s vice presidency in his private DC office,” shared Crenshaw, explaining that “reports are saying the materials included memos on Ukraine and Iran.”
“Joe Biden knew he was harboring these secret documents when the Mar-a-Lago raid happened,” Crenshaw commented, referencing last year’s raid.
“This is the same situation that Democrats lost their mind over, and yet all we hear is silence,” he expressed, noting that “if the left didn’t have double standards, they’d have no standards at all.”
Calling on the FBI to raid the President’s home, Crenshaw said that it time to “see what he’s hiding.”
CNN reports that "10 classified documents including US intelligence memos and briefing materials that covered topics including Ukraine, Iran and the United Kingdom" were found in Biden's office. The documents were dated between 2013 and 2016, and "they were found in three or four boxes also containing unclassified papers that fall under the Presidential Records Act."
Attorney General Merrick Garland has designated a U.S. attorney from Chicago, a holdover from President Trump's administration, to investigate the discovery.
"The question is always: was it intentional or malicious? There was no reason to believe it was with Trump, and his home never should have been raided," Crenshaw expressed.
