Democrat leadership leaves Adam Schiff hanging on call for intelligence assessment of Biden's classified docs

Democratic leadership in the House and Senate left colleague Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., hanging Monday as they remained silent on whether they supported his call for an

intelligence assessment concerning the classified documents that were mishandled by President Joe Biden. "I don’t think we can exclude the possibility without knowing more

of the facts," Schiff told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday. "We have asked for an assessment in the intelligence community of the Mar-a-Lago documents. I think we ought to get that

same assessment of the documents found in the [Penn Biden Center] as well as the home of President Biden." "I’d like to know what these documents were. I’d like to know what

the [special counsel’s] assessment is, whether there was any risk of exposure and what the harm would be and whether any mitigation needs to be done," Schiff added. "I think that

would be appropriate and consistent with what we requested in the case of Mar-a-Lago." FORMER FBI ASSISTANT DIRECTOR SEES ‘GLARING DISPARITY’ IN DOJ'S ‘KID GLOVES’ TREATMENT

OF BIDEN Fox News Digital reached out to each member of the Democratic leadership team in both houses of Congress for reaction to Schiff's comments but only received a

response from Sen. Mark Warner's, D-Va., staff, pointing to his previous statements calling for a Senate briefing on both the Biden documents and those found at former President

Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate last summer. The list of Democrats to whom Fox reached out included Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., Senate Majority Whip Dick

Durbin, D-Ill., House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., and House Minority Whip Katherine Clark, D-Mass.
