Ah-Oh…Ole Joe is feeling what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. President Joe Biden just did not answer questions on Monday about a report that classified material from his time as vice president was allegedly found at a Biden think tank.
CBS News reported that 10 classified documents from Biden’s term as vice president were found at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C.
Attorney General Merrick Garland noted the discovery which was made in November and he assigned the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, John Lausch, to review the classified material and determine what the next steps should be. Lausch was appointed by former President Donald Trump.
Biden was asked about the story while he was meeting with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Jennifer Jacobs, a reporter from Bloomberg News, posted on Twitter that the president simply refused to answer questions about the material that was found.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) posted a video of the exchange with reporters in which Biden just looked down at his notes while being asked about the materials.
The files were discovered by the president’s attorneys when they were packing files that were kept in a locked closet. They were getting ready to leave the office space at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C.
Sources told CBS News that the information was found in a box with other materials that were not classified.
CNN then reported that some of the classified materials that were discovered included top-secret files designated as “sensitive compartmented information.” This means they included highly sensitive that would have been obtained by intelligence sources.
After the National Archives was alerted to the materials, they contacted the DOJ and the FBI.
Maybe these guys should consider an early morning raid on Biden’s Delaware home.
As the press is herded out of the room, a reporter asks Biden: "Any response to the discovery of classified documents at your office?"
