Joe Biden has finally spoken regarding the classified documents that were found at his Penn Biden Center office.
His excuse for how the documents came into his possession was simply unacceptable.
Biden claimed he had no idea how they got there.
After days of ignoring questions on the subject, the White House fed Biden some lines to give the media.
While attending the North American Leaders Summit in Mexico, Biden stated, "Let me get rid of the easy one first.
"People know I take classified documents and classified information seriously.
"They did what they should have done. They immediately called the [National Archives] … turned them over to the Archives, and I was briefed about this discovery and surprised to learn that there were any government records that were taken there to that office.
"But I don't know what's in the documents. My lawyers have not suggested I ask what documents they were."
So, that is just unacceptable.
Those documents only got to that office by Biden or by a member of his staff, and clearly they were not supposed to have been taken.
They certainly were not meant to be stored in an office at his think tank.
Secondly, the documents were reportedly discovered on November 2, a full week before the mid-term elections, but we are now just finding out about it.
Why was this not reported as soon as it happened and why is Biden being given different treatment than Donald Trump on this matter?
Additionally, is Biden telling us that this is the first he has learned of the documents being located even though they were found by his attorneys at his office?
This whole thing stinks of a coverup and a double standard in our justice system. Trump's home was literally raided over this, but Biden's case was kept quiet for months.
Oh, by the way, reports surfaced this week that a second batch of classified documents was found in another location, but no details have been released on the matter.
Again, not exactly the treatment that Trump received, when the documents were posted on social media.
Of course, the White House refuses to provide more information, with White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stating, "This is under review by the Department of Justice. I'm not going to go beyond what the president shared yesterday. I'm not going to go beyond what my colleagues at the White House counsel shared with all of you as well."
