“The letter zeroed in on concerns that it took the White House two months to announce the discovery of documents.”
As still more classified documents are being unearthed among Joe “I am the Democratic Party” Biden’s personal possessions, the newly-elected Republican House is launching at least two investigations into the growing scandal. One is spear-headed by the House Judiciary committee, the other by the House Oversight committee.
House Republicans announced Friday they have opened an investigation into the classified documents that were found at President Joe Biden’s Delaware home and his former Washington office.
In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan requested all documents related to the discovery of the documents and Garland’s appointment of special counsel Richard Hur to handle the case.
“The American people deserve transparency and accountability from our most-senior executive branch law enforcement officials,” Jordan said, requesting the Justice Department to provide the documents no later than Jan. 27.
Kentucky Republican Rep. James Comer, who chairs the House Oversight Committee, also sent a letter to the White House requesting additional details about the documents.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the chairman of the panel, and Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) penned a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Friday announcing the probe and requesting documents. The communication came one day after Garland named a special counsel to look into the potential mishandling of classified materials.
“We are conducting oversight of the Justice Department’s actions with respect to former Vice President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, including the apparently unauthorized possession of classified material at a Washington, D.C. private office and in the garage of his Wilmington, Delaware residence,” the letter reads.
. . . . Jordan and the Judiciary Committee are now launching their own investigation, requesting that Garland produce documents and communications relating to the appointment of Hur as special counsel and Biden’s mishandling of classified materials, among other subjects. They also want documents and communications between the Justice Department, FBI and Executive Office of the President.
The committee requested the materials be sent by Jan. 27.
The letter zeroed in on concerns that it took the White House two months to announce the discovery of documents. Biden’s lawyers alerted the National Archives the day they found the materials in November — days before the midterm elections — and the agency then retrieved the materials the next day. The second batch of documents were found in Wilmington on Dec. 20 in a review that ended on Wednesday night.
Still more documents have been discovered since.
The Hill continues:
“It is unclear when the Department first came to learn about the existence of these documents, and whether it actively concealed this information from the public on the eve of the 2022 elections,” Jordan and Johnson wrote. “It is also unclear what interactions, if any, the Department had with President Biden or his representatives about his mishandling of classified material.”
The Republicans went on to juxtapose the Justice Department’s handling of the Biden documents with how it dealt with classified materials found at former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence — which involved a search warrant being executed at the Florida location.
The growing scandal surrounding Biden’s classified documents cache(s) is shocking.
It’s not shocking that Biden mishandled classified materials; he’s known to be a completely corrupt, careless, clueless old codger. What is shocking is that the media and the DOJ appear to be pouncing on the developments . . . that have been known about in DC since at least early November (i.e. before the midterms).
This is starting to remind me of the start of the #MeToo movement that claimed the scalp of Democrat senator Al Franken. The goal of that leftist-fueled movement may have started out with good intentions, but it was quickly grasped by Democrats as a possible political weapon against then-President Trump. However, as the movement gained steam, they found themselves on dangerous ground as allegations and photos surfaced of Franken behaving badly. He had to be sacrificed on the altar of #MeToo . . . or they could never “get Trump.”
Democrats suddenly dropped the whole #MeToo thing in order to run Biden in 2020, but that is looking more like a stay than a pardon.
Is Biden about to suffer the same fate as Franken? Another expendable white, heterosexual male sacrificed by Democrats to “get Trump”? Who knows, but I sure wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the play here. At the very least, they can clear the path for a more “inclusive” president in VP Kamala Harris who checks numerous ‘intersectional’ boxes that the radical left obsesses over.
Tucker Carlson sees similar parallels with the Democrats’ destruction of one of the founding members of their branch covidians, now-former New York governor Andrew Cuomo. Watch:DONATE
