Democrats don’t care if the laws are followed.
Instead they just want to get Joe Biden off the hook.
Democrats just gave Joe Biden a horrifying, underhanded piece of help.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) is reportedly not going to send FBI agents to President Joe Biden’s Delaware home to monitor his attorneys’ search for classified documents.
Instead, according to Wall Street Journal, the DOJ decided to let Biden’s lawyers search for documents alone because they wanted to avoid “complicating” the investigation and because Biden’s legal team had been allegedly cooperative.
Biden hasn’t reported that his legal team has security clearance, or to what level, leaving open the possibility that some of them shouldn’t be handling classified information.
Scandal started when Biden’s personal attorneys found an envelope with 10 classified documents at the Penn Biden Center, a D.C. think tank.
Over a month later Biden’s attorneys found a batch of sensitive government documents in Biden’s garage and then a few weeks later a document was found in Biden’s study and the next day they uncovered five more.
Four batches of documents, in three different locations, all found by Biden’s lawyers rather than the FBI.
But it’s a significant benefit for Biden these lawyers are not acting on behalf of the public interest but in his own, and he may be able to raise attorney-client privilege to keep information about how the documents were found from public knowledge.
This is markedly different from the way former President Donald Trump was treated; in his case the FBI raided his home of Mar-a-Lago in order to recover allegedly classified documents that Trump had refused to hand over to the government.
Trump criticized the fact that the DOJ is allowing Biden’s lawyers to conduct the search.
“Biden is being treated so much [sic] better than me, I’m shocked (not really!). Why aren’t they raiding his house, & how come his representatives and lawyers are allowed to work together with the Gestapo [sic] in looking for documents, when my lawyers & representatives were not allowed anywhere near the search,” Trump posted on Truth Social on Tuesday morning. “We weren’t even allowed to know what they took when they raided my home. ‘Please leave the premises,’ they said, & then lugged out everything they could, including my Passports & Med Recs.”
Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida blasted the Biden Administration for their double standard.
During a press conference, DeSantis said, “Look, [Biden] said that it was incredibly reckless to have classified [documents].”
“Now,” he began, “you find out he had them stashed behind his Corvette at his house that Hunter [Biden] had access to.”
According to the governor, that is “definitely a security risk in my book.”
