WASHINGTON — Speaker Johnson, Leader Scalise, Whip Emmer, and Chairwoman Stefanik today released the following statement regarding the Special Counsel report:


“The Special Counsel’s finding that President Biden ‘willfully retained and disclosed classified materials’ and engaged in practices that ‘present serious risks to national security’ is deeply disturbing.


“Not only does it demonstrate the President’s recklessness, but exposes a two-tiered system of justice that is indicting one President with politically motivated charges while carrying water for another amid similar allegations.


“Among the most disturbing parts of this report is the Special Counsel’s justification for not recommending charges: namely that the President’s memory had such ‘significant limitations’ that he could not convince a jury that the President held a ‘mental state of willfulness’ that a serious felony requires.


“A man too incapable of being held accountable for mishandling classified information is certainly unfit for the Oval Office.”
