The classified document scandal has taken a backseat to the concerning UFO situation in recent weeks. However, a new information dump has revealed an entirely new angle to the document fiasco.
Most recently, the President let it slip that one of the retrieved documents was actually from 1974. Now, Biden might have more explaining to do:
The National Archives released 74 pages of emails late last week — and they tell a whole new story.
The original scandal broke when authorities found classified documents at the Penn Biden Center, which followed the bombshell FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
Trump has since responded, claiming Biden’s classified info issue is far more serious.
But aside from the contents of those documents, there’s another issue now: the apparent fact that Biden’s lawyers were told to quietly remove that classified info before the midterm elections kicked off.
The National Archives on Friday released 74 pages of emails showing an Archives lawyer coordinating with President Joe Biden’s attorneys to secretly retrieve classified materials from the Penn Biden Center before the 2022 midterm elections.
According to House oversight Chair James Comer (R-KY), the Archives was previously instructed by either the White House or the Department of Justice (DOJ) to hide initial revelations of the Biden classified document scandal from the American people.
The emails in question came courtesy of a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Bloomberg, and it shows the Archives communicating with Biden’s personal attorneys to get those classified records.
It also shed some light on the location of these documents, as now there are questions about whether they were in Boston or Philadelphia.
Archives lawyer Gary Stern communicated with Biden’s team as early as November 4, and one of the emails reads as follows:
Bob/Pat, following our conversation on Friday, we would like to make arrangements for our staff to come back to the DC PennBiden Center space to assess the remaining boxes and take custody of whichever ones we deem appropriate for further review.
These emails finally arrived after the Archives failed to give Comer the necessary information before the Jan. 24 deadine, which at the time Comer called “very disappointing.”
Comer wants the American people to understand:
He believes the Archives were told by either the White House or the DOJ to hide the document scandal from the country.
And of course, the reason given is that they didn’t want it to negatively impact the midterm elections. It reminds many citizens of the Hunter Biden scandal, which some claim was also hidden to help Joe on the campaign trail.
While the Trump classified doc issue was well covered for weeks and months, it feels as if the Biden doc scandal is already melting away.
Rep. Comer and other Republican leaders refuse to let that happen, though, and these emails are indicating that the White House potentially tried to keep it all under wraps. At least for a little while.
- The National Archives released 74 emails that show they were in communication with Biden’s personal lawyers.
- The emails allegedly prove the White House or DOJ tried to keep the document scandal hidden from the public.
- The Archives initially didn’t provide the information; the emails only came through a FOIA request filed by Bloomberg.
