(PartiallyPolitics.com) In a letter sent to the Senate Intelligence Committee the Department of Justice noted that they are “actively working” to brief lawmakers about the classified documents in both the cases of President Biden and former President Trump. The letter also notes that they are going to be briefing lawmakers on potential national security risks, in a way that will not hinder the ongoing investigation.

The letter was sent by Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte to Sens. Mark Warner, D-Va., and Marco Rubio, R-Fla., the chair and vice chair of the committee. In it Uriarte noted that they were going to be working with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, to provide the necessary information so that the committee could fulfill its responsibilities, without actually risking the Special counsel investigations.

Uriarte added that prosecutors were actively working to supply and share information with the committee. Both Trump’s and Biden’s cases are currently being handled by two separate Special Counsels. The content of the letter was first reported by CBS News.

Warner and Rubio have previously requested an assessment of what the potential security risks were as well as access to the classified documents or details regarding their content. The two Senators were also frustrated following a closed-door briefing with National Intelligence Director Avril Haines, where they were not allowed to see copies of the classified documents found in the possession of either Biden or Trump.

Haines had noted that due to the ongoing investigation access to those files could not be provided.
