saying. >> ainsley: coming back next year. >> steve: from dancing to tap dancing which the white house is doing. republicans demanding to turn over information on visitors to president biden's wilmington home ever since he was vice president. >> brian: it comes as the president brushes off questions from the press as his own party calls for transparency. >> ainsley: jacqui heinrich joins us live from the white house, good morning. >> lawyers for the white house have now responded to congressman james comer's request for information who had access to the biden family home. the larger say they will work to accommodate a legitimate oversight request from the committee while also balancing the need to protect the integrity of the law enforcement investigation. they have agreed to set up a time to talk about what james comer is seeking but that is about it. >> this has all of the pattern of an influence peddling scheme. and also has the makings of a

potential cover up. >> is president biden involved in a cover-up? >> the president has been very clear that he takes this very seriously when it comes to -- when it comes to classified information. speak with the white house counsel's office cleaned that up a bit in a zoom after the briefing. >> this was an unprecedented offer for the doj to thoroughly search the family home of the president of the united states, to ensure any documents issued in possession were in the possession of the government. and it reveals how seriously the president is taking this issue and how actively he is cooperating with the ongoing investigation. >> but now, it is not just congressman combe are seeking information. senators grassley and johnson a request to a national archives when republicans were in the minority about the family's financial dealing. the biden family financial dealings and any potential

5:06 am
white house. didn't get anywhere. did you see in advance of the republicans taking over the white house hired new attorneys and spokespeople to handle the republican investigations. now the white house a person by the name of ian sams was on a press call yesterday. he said essentially he attacked reporters like you accusing reporters of trying to stir up controversy to get attention for time on camera. so, is that why you are asking questions, so you can put the picture together so you get on tv just a little more to stir things up, is that what you are doing, jacqui? >> certainly not in if we got questions to our questions we would probably move on. >> steve: exactly! >> we haven't gotten those answers and referred to a cycle of other referrals which is why we are still asking. it has been frustrating, but we have gotten the message from the white house that we are not going to get much from them.
5:07 am
doj has kept a tight lid on things. by the way the investigation has not formally begun so the white house to talk about this saying special counts was involved and we can't say anything, it is a little bit -- exactly. >> brian: can i ask you in the big picture that you since she doesn't know the answers or told not to answer you? because her retorts are embarrassing. >> welcome i think in the case what was it a week or two weeks ago she gave. information and you should assume the searches are complete and we found out that was not the case. i think she gave the information that she had at the time, whether she framed it in a way that was more absolute than she should have, that is up for people to decide and for her to weigh in, which she won't. but at this point, i think she probably does not have a lot of information. she's just directing every question including how the
5:08 am
president feels about these things to the white house counsel peer that is the funnel through which they were directing anything and everything related to this probe. >> ainsley: are they answering the white house counsel? >> no, they are not pure they were saying that they can't say and they don't want to compromise an ongoing investigation. it is unfortunate because it gives space, obviously, for a lot of speculation. just one example, i asked multiple times over the weekend, hade this search at the biden home on friday initiate what the doj request or was it what biden offered? they didn't answer that. we had two days of reporting questioning how this all began and sam went on msnbc and the president offered up and transparent and once the doj to check our work because he's cooperating. had he said that to us, that would have resolved that question. >> brian: two and a half hours later -- jackie, thank you so
5:09 am
much. he's been in the senate 25 years with joe biden. you can't leak classified documents. you have to jam it down your shorts or his pants. excuse me, so the question is how did he get the senate documents at his house? 's beach house in wilmington? senator lindsey graham not only did they you created else but's weapons to stay alive. number two, you talk about the problem with this whole thing is when they found out about his classified documents. >> i want to know why the press wasn't told about this event days before the 2022 election. they had found out that there was classified information in biden's home days before the 2022 election and they sat on it. that is what i don't understand. if you come to my house you will find chick-fil-a bags over the
5:10 am
floor but you won't find classified information. every time i view classified information it's in a classified setting. so this handling of trump and biden we need to apply it to both and make sure we don't do it again. >> i have to hit it to senator graham, chick-fil-a is fantastic. one of the questions yesterday in the briefing room peter doocy the first question was he asked karine jean-pierre, when you found out that there were more documents, what four letter word did you use? she just laughed and the room laughed. she never answered. that is probably because it was not just one four letter word appear of the entire white house has been knocked off-kilter because of these findings. >> ainsley: the first batch was in november, the second batch at his house and then she came out mid-january and said, "there are anymore and i think it is over." and now two more batches. >> steve: and they are looking at the beach house which
5:11 am
joe biden visited this weekend. you have to know whether or not they tidy things up. do they have a shredder in their home? i don't know. >> ainsley: lindsey graham as they perfect question, why didn't we know before the election? we saw with the press did censoring the hunter biden story before the last election and we don't find out about this and how many votes would that affect? we don't know. >> steve: to that point, ainsley, is there a cover up? there was apsley a cover up for the midterm election because they call joe biden's lawyers, called the national archives. they didn't call the cops, the fbi or the department of justice, but the department of national archives because depository for those kind of things and hoping to just blow over and get through the election and somebody leaked it to one of the networks. now we are talking about it every morning. that is why the white house is not answering the questions. >> ainsley: somebody is talking here and throughout the network because it involves the employees, adam klotz sat next to brian yesterday. he was beaten up on a subway

to apprehend the person overwhelmingly the number of crimes the person. overwhelmingly. and we have a revolving door system but we will continue to
5:14 am
do our job, but we also must bottleneck the criminal justice system to get dangerous people off of the streets. >> brian: the key to this streets is that we have repeat offenders. that speaks to the fact this particular town that we are sitting in right now, adam said that after he got hurt, he got beat up. and the president of amtrak told him. he wants to see more cops and so does the mayor but unfortunately there were no cops on the subways. this is a soft on crime. >> ainsley: why can't the mayor change that? >> steve: he could say we can put more cops in there. it was in the middle of the night 1:15 a.m. >> brian: that is when needed the most. >> steve: speaking on soft on crime jurisdictions, this is the d.a. standard across the country that received a lot of money from george soros. yesterday, "the new york post" did a story about how george soros spent nearly
5:15 am
$40 million getting das elected all over the country. he's got 75 prosecutors nationwide because ultimately what this article says is in the big scheme of things, it is hard to change a law. it is hard to flip the legislature in the state but it is easy to elect one person who ultimately winds up not enforcing the law or redefines it. one of the things, when you look at the image of adam according to the cops, that was just a misdemeanor. they beat the crap out of him and it's a misdemeanor. what does adam have to do? contact the law department and launch a complaint. they will decide whether or not to press charges. >> ainsley: the problem is they know he is a fox news anchor and that puts him in a bad position. if you file charges, they will not put these guys behind bars. they know who he is. >> brian: i think he is in a better position. >> ainsley: you have to walk around with security.
