I guess when a Democratic president is caught with classified documents there must be some kind of conspiracy, maybe even a “vast right wing conspiracy.”
That’s exactly what Rep. Hank Johnson (D-CA) is floating with the media. You might remember him as the guy who believes that the island of Guam might “tip over and capsize” from overpopulation.
He is now talking about a conspiracy theory in response to Biden’s classified documents being found at a Democratic think tank and in Biden’s Delaware home.
Rep. Johnson made the outlandish remarks to a Fox News reporter when he was asked about the scandal.
“My response to it all is that alleged classified documents showing up allegedly in the possession of Joseph Biden, you know, I mean, there’s so much that needs to be investigated,” he said. “And that’s, that’s what I called for is for everything to be investigated, but I’m suspicious of the timing of it.”
“I’m also aware of the fact that things can be planted on people, places and things can be planted, things can be planted in places and then discovered conveniently, that may be what has occurred here,” he claimed. “I’m not ruling that out.”
“But I don’t, I’m open in terms of the investigation needs to be investigated,” he added.
The investigation into these classified documents began when Biden’s personal attorneys found 10 classified documents stashed in an envelope in the president’s private office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington. The documents were immediately turned over to the National Archives for storage, Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president, said on Monday.
Sauber also said in another statement that a review of Biden’s offices, quarters, and other spaces turned up a second set of classified documents at the president’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, according to The New York Times.
U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland responded to the scandal by announcing that he had appointed a special counsel to further investigate the matter.
