Coons says one thing separates Biden, Trump docs cases -- but acknowledges 'fallout'

Sen. Chris Coons, a close ally of Joe Biden, on Sunday insisted there was a key difference between the current president and former President Donald Trump's handling of

classified documents while out of office. "I have some confidence that, because he is fully cooperating, we will get to the bottom of this," Coons told ABC "This Week"

co-anchor Martha Raddatz of Biden, in "sharp contrast" with Biden's predecessor, whom the government suspects was less forthcoming in returning classified records. On

Saturday, Biden's personal attorney said the Department of Justice had searched his Wilmington, Delaware, home the day before and found six items consisting of documents with

classification markings, some from his time in the Senate in addition to his tenure as vice president. The search was voluntary, according to federal authorities, and

Biden's attorney stressed his cooperation. "There is one important document that distinguishes former President Trump from President Biden: That's a warrant," Coons,

D-Del., said on "This Week." He was pressed by Raddatz over the latest developments and potential political consequences surrounding the discovery of multiple batches of

documents with classified markings at an old office Biden used in Washington D.C. and at his Wilmington residence. This all unfolding just months after the Department of Justice

separately recovered -- via a court-authorized FBI search -- a trove of classified materials from Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort.
