The top Democrat and Republican on the House Intel committee say the FBI hasn't been forthcoming about what's exactly in the classified docs seized from Biden, Pence, and Trump
Top House Intel committee members told NBC News the FBI hasn't told them what's in seized documents.
The DOJ has seized classified documents from Donald Trump, Joe Biden, and Mike Pence.
"Administration after administration is apparently sloppy and messy" with such docs, Rep. Turner said.
The top Democrat and the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee said the FBI hasn't told them what's actually in the classified documents it seized from Donald Trump and President Joe Biden.
Ohio Republican Rep. Mike Turner said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that the "FBI is not being forthcoming. They are not giving us the information."
"They're claiming that it's going to affect the outcome of their investigation, which of course it can't, because the people who are the targets of their investigation know what are in those documents," Turner told host Chuck Todd on Sunday.
The FBI didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment on Sunday.

Turner said Avril Haines, the director of national intelligence, wasn't consulted before the August 2022 raid on Donal Trump's Mar-a-Lago home in Florida.
The FBI also searched one of Biden's old offices last year after aides said they found classified documents there. And the DOJ also found classified documents in former Vice President Mike Pence's home in January.
"The thing that we know is that it's unbelievable that administration after administration is apparently sloppy and messy, in their use of classified documents, and that's one thing on a bipartisan basis we have to address well beyond just this," Turner said.
"This has to change, where classified documents are under a certain amount of control," Turner continued.
Todd asked Democratic Rep. Jim Himes if there is a distinction between the documents found in the possession of Pence, Trump, and Biden, and Himes said neither he nor Turner was "satisfied that we got enough information to execute our primary responsibility of making sure the sources and methods have been protected."
Himes said they don't know exactly what's in the documents but that they have gotten a "flavor for what was there" and that it's a "very serious issue."
"This wasn't stuff that we can say clearly does not matter. It matters," Himes said.
