By Marianne Le Vine

Senate Democrats are wincing at President Joe Bidens handling of classified documents, even as they seek to draw a distinction between the incumbent president and former President Donald Trump.

In interviews on Monday evening, Democratic senators raised concerns at the latest document discovery, with Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia offering the harshest review for the White House: It couldnt get any worse.

Manchin wasnt alone. Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) put it simply: I dont think any classified document should be at somebodys house.
