Sen. Ted Cruz said on Sunday that the FBI should search Hunter Biden’s home and office for classified documents.
Cruz made the comments while speaking to Maria Bartiromo on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures.”
Classified documents have been found in Biden’s Delaware home and an office he previously used in Washington, DC.
“It seems he leaves classified documents wherever he goes. And we also know that Hunter Biden at times was — declared his residence to be those very same places,” Cruz said.

The president’s son has been scrutinized for his drug use, shady business dealings in foreign nations, and excessive “rent” payments to his father for office space in DC.
“I also believe it is critical for the FBI to search Hunter Biden’s homes, home and office residences to make sure there are no classified documents there, given all the evidence that’s piling up. We need to ascertain who’s had access to what and when,” Cruz said.
The Hill reports, “Cruz on Sunday based his FBI suggestion on reports of a 2014 email from Hunter Biden to his former business partner Devon Archer that discussed destabilization in Ukraine, which he alleged ‘raises the natural inference’ the president’s son could have had access to some classified information. Hunter Biden’s time at Ukrainian energy company Burisma is also at the center of GOP probes.”
Cruz also said that he “can state to a metaphysical certainty” that there are no classified documents in his home.
Later in the day, Cruz made similar remarks while appearing on Fox Business.
