Special Council Appointed to Investigate Joe Biden's Mishandling of Classified Documents


Last year FBI agents raided former president Donald Trump's compound at Mar-a-Largo after he refused to return 27 boxes of government records, some of them classified top secret [click here if you missed that]. 

This week U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special council to investigate after current president Joe Biden's legal team discovered classified documents at his home in Delaware...

From CBS News
Former U.S. Attorney Robert Hur will serve as special counsel overseeing an inquiry related to the discovery of documents with classification markings at President Biden's Wilmington home and former private office, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Thursday.
Hur is the second special counsel appointed to oversee an investigation into sensitive documents, joining Jack Smith, who was tapped in November to take over the probe into former President Donald Trump's handling of sensitive government documents.
"I will conduct the assigned investigation with fair, impartial, and dispassionate judgment. I intend to follow the facts swiftly and thoroughly, without fear or favor, and will honor the trust placed in me to perform this service," Hur said in a statement after Garland's announcement.
The appointment of Hur came hours after the White House confirmed the discovery of a second set of documents in a garage at Mr. Biden's Delaware residence. Garland said the government first learned about the initial group of documents that were found in an office Mr. Biden used upon leaving the vice presidency in early November, and the FBI began an assessment of potential mishandling of classified information several days later. Garland revealed the documents in Mr. Biden's garage were subsequently discovered on Dec. 20.

I really don't think Biden did anything wrong, but, yes he should be investigated. I just don't understand how it's a crime when you're still in office? Trumpf was out of office and had the documents in another state that wasn't safeguarded, despite it containing highly classified documents; not to mention he had already been twice impeached, and suspected of treason. It's not the same as Biden; but that won't stop Republicans from exacerbating the issue as a pretext for their impeachment strategy against Biden. I'm so sick of these performative Republicans who commit blatant acts of treason, corruption, and fraud yet scream the loudest when the smallest infraction is committed by Democrats. This is a case of oranges vs apples; they are not the same.

11:52 as Vice President, Biden is not allowed classified documents to take home, only Presidents.

The House will probably impeach him.

I remember when this blog didn't do politics.

Oh, please. The difference between Trump and Biden is that Biden has been exposed to classified documents for 50 years as a US Senator, VP and POTUS. Trump was exposed to classified docs in the White House for 4 years.

Also, Trump is known to cozy up to disgusting dictators like Putin, Bolsonaro, and Orban in Hungary. Biden is only known to cozy up to disgusting Republicans like McConnell, Gingrich, McCarthy. There is a difference.

@12:39
Biden has only had access to the documents for 2yrs, WTF are you babbling about? Trumpf has been twice impeached, suspected of treason, and is about to be indicted on fraud. You're right, one ain't like the other...but I expect nothing less from Republicans; Santos is sitting in the house of representatives right now despite lying about his education & professional background! And has the audacity to dare anyone to remove him from office. Y'all (Republicans) ain't got a leg to stand!

Biden is not the VP; circumstances are extraordinary due to COVID and other public health policies. Congress was allowed to vote without being present, a new precedent that was set by Pelosi. I still don't think it warrants the media circus created by Republicans, when they have a whole @$$ fraud (Santos) sitting in the House of Representatives.

@12:06. Biden, like all United States Senators, particularly those on committees, have access to classified information. Different levels of access, but they have access classified info. As do some House of Representatives. Work with that.

And Vice Presidents have access to some classified docs, too.

Trump is NEVER going to jail. That’s why they set up Biden. The Republicans knew the DOJ had Trump, so thus.. the set up. McCarthey also announced he wants to expunge Trump’s 2 impeachments. Trump is like the fat orange version of Hitler merged with Hoover, he got tapes on everybody and all those rich folks are brainwashed and scared. They got him on tax evasion, now the Republicans want to get rid of regular taxes and tax you instead on what you spend. Say what??? Everyone knows rich people don’t spend their own money. But we middle class people do. America hasn’t had a real President since Obama. We just out here on own. 💯

All they do is go back and forth from being the prosecutor or the defendant.
