House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner (R-OH) is out for justice against Joe Biden.
As the Intelligence Committee Chairman, he would have far more access than most in regard to the documents that Biden had been holding after having left office as the vice president.
Turner says there is no doubt, in his mind, that Biden should be indicted for his handling of classified documents.
Scales of Justice
Turner was asked if he thought the Biden and Trump cases should be treated equally.
He responded, “Well, when you look at the documents, both the classification level and the subject matter, both sides, Trump and Biden’s documents, if they had been released in the public or gotten into the hands of nefarious parties, would be damaging to the United States national security.
“When I look at those documents, there are documents on both sides, equally egregious, that would have negative consequences to our means, methods, techniques and- and our allies. Now, in this instance, I think President Biden needs the same consequences that they pursue with President Trump. The actions are the same.”
When asked if Biden should be indicted for these actions, Turner pulled no punches, stating, “You’re continuing to see the inequality that comes out of the Justice Department.
“As there’s silence on the other side with respect to Biden’s- and by the way, he was a serial classified document hoarder. I reviewed documents that were from all the time that he’s been in government. This really is a very serious breach by President Biden.”
He was then pressed on whether he thought there was real evidence of crime, to which he responded, “I have seen evidence of the fact that classified documents of some of the highest levels have been mishandled by President Biden.”
We all know how this works, though, right?
Trump gets indicted for what he did, and Joe Biden will more than likely be told that he was sloppy, but there were no nefarious acts to warrant an indictment.
I would even go so far as to say the comments made about Hillary’s email server will be almost identical to what we see said about Biden.
