Biden Took Classified Documents While Senator
Biden Took Classified Documents While Senator
Yes, you read that correctly. More classified documents were found in Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware home. This time, some of those documents were from when Joe Biden was a SENATOR.
Federal investigators found more classified materials during a search of President Biden’s Delaware home — with some dating back to his years in the Senate, Biden’s lawyer announced Saturday.
Bob Bauer, Biden’s newly acquired personal lawyer, said the Justice Department took six documents marked classified and some of Biden’s notes during a Friday search that lasted 13 hours.
When was Joe Biden’s last year as a Senator?? 2008. That was FIFTEEN years ago. So he’s had these documents for at least that long, or longer. Now why would he have classified documents from that time period? How is it that Joe would’ve been able to lay his grubby hands on classified documents?
Oh perhaps because he was on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee! Not only that, but he was CHAIR of the committee from 2001-2003, and again Chair from 2006-2008. As our brilliant readers know, if one is able to view classified documents, they have to be viewed in a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) …and then LEFT THERE.
So how in the hell was Joe able to waltz out of there with classified documents?? Did he stuff them down his pants like Sandy Berger did??
It wasn’t just six pieces of paper. NOPE. It was more.
The Justice Department, he added, ‘took possession of materials it deemed within the scope of its inquiry, including six items consisting of documents with classification markings and surrounding materials, some of which were from the President’s service in the Senate (1973 to 2009,) and some of which were from his tenure as Vice President (from 2009 through 2017).’
Upon reading the above, multiple questions come to mind. How many documents were of the “surrounding materials?” Furthermore, if there were surrounding documents pertaining to Joe’s Vice President years, then it’s fair to assume that there’s likely some classified documents from those same years roaming around either of Joe’s homes.
This search was conducted on Friday. The very same day that the Bidens jaunted off for yet another weekend in Delaware, this time just down the road at their beach house. Had they originally planned to spend the weekend at the Wilmington home?
On Thursday, Joe went on record to tell the world that there’s nothing to see here and he has no regrets. Then we find out that Ron Klain is definitely leaving the White House after the State of the Union, and that he’s been talking about leaving since November. The FIRST documents were “discovered” on November 2nd. The Daily Mail has a handy timeline chart here. I’m sure it’s going to be updated multiple times over the next days and weeks.
Furthermore, with the now around 30 actual documents along with however many additional documents gathered up, it seems more locations are being considered for searches.
Again, those are just the classified documents. What else is in the surrounding materials that skates on the edge? How many of those documents were directly from Joe’s time as a U.S. Senator and what years??
If Joe played fast and loose with classified documents during that time, and it looks like he did, then the Democrats not only voted for a man who is a plagiarist and grifter, but also voted for a man who has never cared about our national security. Oh yes, something else to consider, Joe ALSO served on the Homeland Security committee until 2008.
But the prevailing spin has been that this was accidental. It was inadvertent. Somehow, some way, those pesky classified documents just showed up. From where? “I dunno, they just did.”
We’re the “six items” trunks, boxes, or folders? Very curious language choice from Biden team https://t.co/EjFESw8Twu— Mollie (@MZHemingway) January 22, 2023
Well, that spin doesn’t cut it anymore. Even as the likes of Chris Coons tell ABC News this morning that truly, all of this was inadvertent, it wasn’t. Why would Hunter make 160 trips to that very same home over the course of 52 days in 2017? Why were boxes of important documents left out during a family birthday party? How about those boxes in the garage guarded by that Corvette?
But again, it’s the fact that classified documents from Joe’s time as a U.S. Senator were found in that home should send alarm bells ringing all over the place. Furthermore, the DOJ should be dropping everything and head to Joe’s beach house and start searching there. IMO, the homes of all family members need to be searched as well.
Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) want a full investigation on this. Which tells me that there IS a ‘there, there.’
This says some of the docs are from his Senate service.— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) January 22, 2023
Serious Q: how on earth did he do that?
I’ve served in the Senate for 10 years. EVERY single classified doc I’ve read—100%—have been in a secure SCIF in the basement of the Capitol.
What the hell?? https://t.co/XXznYth2dA
For those who will leap to the “but Trump!” mantra, go pound sand. These are classified documents Joe has had for decades. These are classified documents tossed around willy nilly in garages and left on tables during family events. And no, sloppiness isn’t the way to spin this.
I’ll have a lot to say tomorrow on @TheSundayShow about this, and Biden’s horrendous sloppiness. But being sloppy is difft from criminal acts. Maybe there are more facts here, none of us in the public know. But criminal law turns on mens rea and criminal intent & we need to wait.— Neal Katyal (@neal_katyal) January 22, 2023
The media and Democrat politicians can no longer stay willfully blind on this issue. They KNEW about Biden’s lack of character, but went ahead and shoved him into the Presidency anyway. They built this, and now the chickens are coming home to roost.
