The growing number of documents marked as classified “showing up” at political leaders’ homes and offices has become a national political hot potato.
The discovery of classified documents found in President Biden’s and Mike Pence’s former offices, and the classified documents found at President Trump’s Mar Lago estate, all raise serious concerns about our nation’s security.
It appears that classification is not always done to ensure our national security but to potentially shield our government and those who act on its behalf from embarrassment, policy failures and just plain incompetence.
Why should we as citizens care?
Join Host Jim Falk, and our two experts,
