Video: Senate Intel Chair Mark Warner – “the idea that anyone with any sense of commitment to national security would mishandle, mistreat, take documents inappropriately, it’s mind boggling, it is beyond the pale”

"I think on this one, in terms of the seriousness, [former Trump administration AG Bill Barr] seems to be right on point."

See below for video off Sen. Mark Warner, Chair of the Senate Intel Committee, speaking earlier today. According to Sen. Warner, he wants to make sure appointment of a “Special Master” in the case of Trump having classified documents at Mar-a-Lago, “does not slow down the intelligence review of the damage that could be done…” Sen. Warner added:

  • “As somebody who’s the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, there’s a reason why we classify documents…human lives can and have been lost by misuse of information…you make our country less safe…if we can’t keep that information secret….”
  • “The first lesson you learn going on the Intelligence Committee is that you have to treat classified documents with respect. When I go into a SCIF, I have to take off my watch, I have to leave my phone…the idea that anyone with any sense of commitment to national security would mishandle, mistreat, take documents inappropriately, it’s mind boggling, it is beyond the pale.”
  • “I hope people of good will will that recognize the importance of national security will step up and speak out. You know, I disagreed a whole lot with Attorney General Barr on a lot of his actions when he was Attorney General, but someone who was a direct Trump appointee, I think on this one, in terms of the seriousness, he seems to be right on point.”
