The chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee is pressing President Joe Biden to release visitor logs to his Delaware home where classified documents were found while accusing the National Archives of stonewalling his investigation.
“The Archives isn’t being transparent with the American people, ” Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., tweeted late Sunday.
The agency that preserves presidential documents “has yet to provide @GOPoversight with a simple briefing on its handling of classified docs,” Comer added. “So many questions remain unanswered. I will use the power of the gavel to get answers.”
Comer also sent a letter Sunday to White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain demanding that he release the visitor logs for Biden’s Wilmington, Del., residence as well as all communications about properties searched for classified documents and those conducting the searches.
“The Committee on Oversight and Accountability is continuing to investigate President Biden’s mishandling of highly classified documents. It is troubling that classified documents have been improperly stored at the home of President Biden for at least six years, raising questions about who may have reviewed or had access to classified information,” Comer wrote Klain.
“Additionally, President Biden’s personal attorneys, who do not possess security clearances, and White House staff continue to access and search the President’s residence in Wilmington, Delaware for classified documents. Given the serious national security implications, the White House must provide the Wilmington residence’s visitor log,” he added.

The White House said Monday there are no visitor logs for the home.
“Like every President in decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal,” the White House Counsel’s Office said in a statement to Fox News. “But upon taking office, President Biden restored the norm and tradition of keeping White House visitors logs, including publishing them regularly, after the previous administration ended them.”

Trump to be joined by Graham, and McMaster at January SC event
Former President Donald Trump will be joined by two high-profile South Carolina supporters — U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham and Gov. Henry McMaster — at his first public 2024 presidential campaign event in the early-voting state later this month.
Trump will be at the Statehouse in Columbia on Jan. 28 and will unveil his South Carolina leadership team, according to a person familiar with the plans. That person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the person wasn’t authorized to speak publicly.
Trump’s campaign had previously confirmed the South Carolina event but hadn’t provided details.
The event will also include members of South Carolina’s congressional delegation, as well as state lawmakers, according to the person.
U.S. Rep. Russell Fry, who with Trump’s support ousted U.S. Rep. Tom Rice in a primary last year, told the AP on Tuesday that he would be at the rollout, saying Trump “delivered for the American people before and can do so again.”
