The White House has offered to brief congressional leaders on their investigation into classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago and Biden's residences.
Why it matters
Lawmakers are demanding to review the documents and are concerned about potential damage to national security and intelligence sources.
What the papers say
The Guardian reports that the briefing could come as soon as this week, but it may not meet demands from lawmakers who want to review documents taken not just from Mar-a-Lago but also from Biden's Delaware home and former Washington office, as well as Mike Pence's Indiana home. The AP News and The Independent provide similar information, stating that officials have declined to answer most questions about what they found, citing the ongoing criminal investigation and a separate risk assessment of possible damage to intelligence sources. The New York Post and The Independent also mention that the FBI recently searched Biden's Rehoboth home as part of a special counsel probe into his handling of documents, but no classified material was found.
How we got here
Six months ago, federal agents conducted an unprecedented search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence, and since then, there has been bipartisan pressure for the White House to share what they found. Separate special counsels are investigating the documents found in the possession of Trump and Biden.
