Don’t buy Biden’s ‘surprise’ — classified documents were moved at least twice

Excellent piece by Jonathan Turley. Mr. Turley has turned out to be an honest voice in the D.C. wilderness. You know that he is on the mark when other Dems accuse him of being a right-winger! I will always admire someone who tells the truth, even when it isn’t easy. From the New York Post:

With the reported discovery of a second batch of highly classified documents connected to President Biden, the decisions of Attorney General Merrick Garland are fast moving from inexplicable to incomprehensible.

Garland was presumably briefed that classified documents were discovered in Joe Biden’s old office on Nov. 2. He also presumably knew about the Biden documents when he appointed a special counsel to investigate the classified documents at Mar-a-Lago 16 days later.

At the time of the appointment of Jack Smith, some of us noted the inexplicable refusal of Garland to appoint a special counsel to look into alleged Biden influence peddling and other crimes.

Garland continued to refuse such an appointment even as he justified the appointment of Smith on the basis that Donald Trump was running for the presidency. Joe Biden is the president. What is the difference?

Biden, meanwhile, is feigning ignorance, simply saying he was “surprised” the documents were there.

By not discussing the content of the documents, Biden minimizes his vulnerability to charges of obstruction or false statements. He can simply declare “surprise,” knowing that many in the media will welcome his silence as they spin the scandal. [. . .]

Biden left office as vice president in 2017 and had an office at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia after finishing his term until 2019. On February 8, 2018, the Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement says, it opened its doors in Washington, DC. So if these documents were removed when Biden left office, where were they in the prior year and were they moved repeatedly before they ended up in the Washington office? This does not appear to be a “one-and-done” mistake. Rather documents may have been at various locations over a five-year period.

    Biden aides find second batch of classified documents at new location

    WASHINGTON — Aides to President Joe Biden have discovered at least one additional batch of classified documents in a location separate from the Washington office he used after leaving the Obama administration, according to a person familiar with the matter.

    Since November, after the discovery of documents with classified markings in his former office, Biden aides have been searching for any additional classified materials that might be in other locations he used, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide details about the ongoing inquiry.

    The White House did not reply to a request for comment. The Justice Department had no comment.

      Can’t be Harris as neither parent was a citizen which makes her a non native born citizen. Then again, wasn’t Obama a Kenyan? He never provided an official birth certificate when challenged! The Left really leaves a lot to be desired with ethics! A bit under-handed if I may. Quite a few years ago, my ex wife and I went to Canada, and we needed official birth certificates for that. There was no problem obtaining them with what we had been given from our actual birth certificates, that had no “official” stamp markings.

    According to CNN:

    President Joe Biden’s aides located documents with classified markings at two locations inside his home in Wilmington, Delaware, the White House counsel’s office said in a statement Thursday.

    The documents were located in a storage area in the garage and then an adjacent room, the statement reads.

    Biden took a question on the statement following remarks on the economy Thursday morning. When asked by a reporter what he was thinking by keeping classified documents in his garage “next to his Corvette,” Biden said, “My Corvette’s in a locked garage, OK? So, it’s not like they’re sitting out on the street.”

    The documents were located following a search of the president’s homes in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. No classified documents were located in Rehoboth, the statement says.

    Wish we had Czar here to comment on this. He worked in SCIFs from before I met him, and regularly dealt with classified documents. He knew the rules and the consequences for lower level people.

    Of course we know when rules don’t apply.
