Well, Republicans in the House are not getting off to the quick start for information that they had hoped in their effort to take down Joe Biden.
Unlike the cooperation received when Donald Trump was being investigated, Archives is declining requests from the GOP unless the Department of Justice gives them the thumbs up.
And does anyone want to put some odds on the DOJ and Merrick Garland giving the thumbs up for information to be given to the Republican Party to take down their boss Joe Biden?
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has been uber-aggressive in stating his intent to go after Joe Biden.
He has been telling anyone that sticks a microphone in his face that Biden will be investigated. How, however, he is about to have a massive brick wall put up in front of him.
Archivist Debra Steidel Wall penned a letter telling Comer, "DOJ has advised it will need to consult with the newly appointed Office of Special Counsel (SCO) in DOJ to assess whether information can be released without interfering with the SCO's investigation."
The note continued, "NARA receives only the Presidential and Vice Presidential records that the departing administration provides us; we are never able to know whether we have 'all' such records."
So, correct me if I am wrong, but I do not recall a similar letter being sent out regarding the DOJ or the DOJ expressing its need to approve any material that was released to Democrats when they were investigating Donald Trump.
We should also note that when Trump brought up the idea of Obama-era officials having classified materials that were mishandled, NARA pushed back immediately.
NARA, at the time, stated, "Reports that indicate or imply that those Presidential records were in the possession of the former Presidents or their representatives, after they left office, or that the records were housed in substandard conditions, are false and misleading."
Two months later, documents were found at the Penn Biden Center, so apparently NARA is not the well-oiled machine they would like us to believe it is.
