Joe Biden said there should be a select committee to investigate Russia's meddling in the 2016 election, scolding a GOP House leader Thursday for sharing intelligence with the White House amid his own panel's probe.

The former Democratic vice president tweeted Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was right to call for such a committee.

McCain on Wednesday said American voters now know "that no longer does the Congress have credibility to handle this alone."

The chorus calling for a select committee began after the House Intelligence chair, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., announced he had briefed President Donald Trump about what he said are intelligence documents showing intel was incidentally collected on members of Trump's transition team – and that their identities were unmasked.

Nunes did not first share the information he obtained with his own panel first, angering the committee's ranking Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who likened Nunes' move to that of a Trump "surrogate."
