Joe Biden has a secret from his past he never thought would be made public.
But now it’s forced Democrats to change all their plans.
These 10 classified documents from Joe Biden’s past are bad news for Democrats.
When classified documents were found at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, President Joe Biden enthusiastically joined in the alarmist claims that it was a shocking and serious problem.
“How could that possibly happen?” Biden said in a 60 Minutes interview.
“How anyone could be that irresponsible?”
“And I thought, what data was in there that may compromise sources and methods?” Biden said.
Yet, as it turns out, Biden was also in possession of comprised classified data.
According to reports, ten classified documents from when Biden served as Vice President were found at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C.
“Attorney General Merrick Garland has assigned the U.S. attorney in Chicago to review documents marked classified that were found at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, two sources with knowledge of the inquiry told CBS News. The roughly 10 documents are from President Biden’s vice-presidential office at the center, the sources said. CBS News has learned the FBI is also involved in the U.S. attorney’s inquiry,” CBS reported.
CNN reported that some of the classified materials included top-secret files designated as “sensitive compartmented information” (SCI) – meaning they contained highly sensitive information obtained from intelligence sources.
“It’s a crime to take classified documents,” Neama Rahmani, former federal prosecutor and president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, told Newsweek.
“President Biden may have violated the Presidential Records Act, Espionage Act, and other federal laws.”
Does Biden view his own actions as irresponsible?
Well, while meeting with leftist Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Monday evening, Biden refused to answer questions when pressed about the reports.
Richard Sauber, Special Counsel to the President, told CBS News:
“The discovery of these documents was made by the President’s attorneys.”
The documents were not the subject of any previous request or inquiry by the Archives. Since that discovery, the President’s personal attorneys have cooperated with the Archives and the Department of Justice in a process to ensure that any Obama-Biden Administration records are appropriately in the possession of the Archives,” Sauber said.
The documents were discovered on November 2nd, just days before the midterm elections.
