On Sunday (January 15), Republicans took to Sunday talk shows to lament what they believe is hypocrisy in handling classified documents discovered in President Joe Biden’s possession and those found in former President Donald Trump’s possession.

Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,”s Rep. James Comer (R-KY.), chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, criticized President Joe Biden for stating “Republicans were a threat to democracy,” claiming the President used Trump’s alleged mishandling of documents to make that case.

Comer added that while Biden was making such claims, “he knew very well that he himself had possession of classified documents.”

The Kentucky Republican continued, stating that the “hypocrisy here is great,” explaining that the GOP was primarily “concerned about a lack of transparency” and the “two-tiered system of justice in America.”

When the show’s anchor, Jake Tapper, queried if Comer only cared about how Democrats handled classified documents and not Republicans, Comer noted that he wasn’t entirely concerned with the classified documents.

Instead, he explained that he was taking issue with the “discrepancy” in treatment, pointing to how the FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home compared to Biden’s treatment.

Speaking on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA.) told host Maria Bartiromo expressed that he was concerned with “how justice is applied” and whether it was “applied equally.”

McCarthy then queried why the FBI would raid Trump’s residence, where he claimed documents were padlocked, but not do the same for Biden, where he asserted documents were behind a “locked garage door that opens and closes by a push of the button.”

He also highlighted that Biden had been in politics for four decades, questioning, “Who’s been in and out of there?”

The California Republican also didn’t seem too pleased with the appointment of a Special Counsel, querying whether Biden had the same number of investigators probing his handling of the documents as Trump had appointed to him.
