BY BRETT SAMUELS - 04/13/21 06:01 AM EDT

A group of 18 Republican senators on Tuesday wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray seeking an investigation into President Biden's nominee for a top role in the Pentagon over whether he disclosed or solicited classified information after leaving his government job in the Obama administration.

The senators requested Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) not advance the nomination of Colin Kahl for undersecretary of Defense policy for a full vote until the FBI has completed its investigation, according to a copy of the letter obtained exclusively by The Hill.

Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.), who led the letter-writing effort, accused Kahl of using social media to disclose classified information.

"These disclosures are extremely concerning and warrant a complete FBI investigation to determine the full scope of the nominee’s mishandling of sensitive national security information, apparently for his own perceived political gain," Hagerty said in a statement to The Hill.
