( – Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, the head of the Judiciary Committee on Sunday claimed that federal agencies had been handling the two cases of classified documents being found differently. During an interview on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” Jordan had told Chuck Todd that there was a double standard in how the case of the classified documents found in former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida and the way that President Biden’s case of classified documents found in his Delaware home and a Washington office, were being dealt.

Jordan also alleged that the FBI and other agencies had been “weaponized” and as evidence of this pointed to the FBI raiding the home of a former President approximately three months before the midterm elections.

Todd however pushed back against these claims by saying that the National Archives had requested the documents more than nine months prior and that the subpoena had been issued 60 days before the actual raid. He also added that the public was informed about it by Donald Trump himself, as he was trying to paint a specific picture of the FBI, even though it had been Trump who had failed to comply for over a year with the National Archives request.

Todd added that this was not exactly proof of weaponization.

Jordan argued back that they had only raided Trump’s home and not Biden’s because he had defied a subpoena. He further noted that Trump had 60 days to comply so that his home would not be raided.
