MAGA Inc. News Roundup for Sunday, January 15, 2023
Biden’s mishandling of classified documents finally has many of his allies in the press admitting what has been obvious to us all. Biden is incompetent and puts our national security at risk. Not only did Biden have no authority as vice president to declassify documents, but he kept them in the same Wilmington home that Hunter Biden resided in. That means national security secrets were stored in the residence of a business partner of the Chinese Communist Party.
Even more classified documents have been found at Joe Biden’s home and office after he removed them the Obama administration:
- White House lawyers admitted on Saturday that a fourth batch of classified documents had been found at Biden’s private home and office.
- This discovery followed White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre's announcement to reporters that "lawyers had finished searching for classified documents."
- The classified documents were discovered in a closet at the University of Pennsylvania's Biden Center in D.C., and at Biden’s home in Wilmington.
- Hunter Biden—currently under his own federal investigation over his taxes and overseas business dealings—listed the Wilmington address where many of the documents were found has his permanent residence. He potentially had access to this classified information.
- The Department of Justice has known about the documents since before the 2022 election, and only now has Merrick Garland bothered to inform the public and appoint a special counsel.
- Joe Biden downplayed the seriousness of his alleged crime, insisting that it was fine because some documents were locked in his garage next to his Corvette: “It’s not like it’s sitting out in the street.”
Unlike President Trump, Biden’s handling of classified documents is likely against the law:
- Biden was the vice president when he left office with classified documents that he brought to his China-funded think tank and home garage. Unlike presidents, vice presidents have no authority to declassify documents. This discrepancy shows the FBI’s double standard in how they’ve handled the respective cases.
- House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said on CNN’s State of the Union: "My concern is how there’s such a discrepancy in how former Pres. Trump was treated — by raiding Mar-a-Lago, by getting the security cameras, by taking pictures of documents on the floor, by going through Melania’s closet — versus Joe Biden."
- Unlike President Trump, Biden did not keep documents in a secure location. Mar-a-Lago has Secret Service protection. Vice presidents only keep Secret Service protection for six months after leaving office, meaning that for over 2 years his Wilmington home did not receive such protection. Even CNN’s Jake Tapper acknowledged Sunday that Biden’s Wilmington Corvette garage is not an ideal place to keep our nation’s secrets.
- "That does not look like what a secure location would be,” Tapper said on State of the Union.
Even Joe Biden’s allies are admitting he was reckless with documents and has not been transparent:
- CBS News' Ed O'Keefe said on Face the Nation that the Biden White House "clearly had a problem this week...especially because you have a president who made campaign and day one promises of transparency, and they weren't kept here."
- ABC’s Jonathan Karl said, “The White House says it is committed to transparency, but the first batch of documents was discovered on November 2nd, just days before the midterm elections, and the public didn't learn of it until this week — and only after reporters started asking."
- Biden is still refusing to tell the public who has visited his Wilmington home.
- Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said on ABC’s This Week that it is possible Biden jeopardized national security with his handling of classified documents.
- Even the Associated Press is acknowledging this reveals Biden is incompetent. “But an excruciating week of awkward disclosures and the appointment of a special counsel to investigate classified records found at his Delaware home and a former office dating to his time as vice president is beginning to strain his claim to competence.”
